There were 7 players away at the World Cup who didn't go on the USA & Canada pre-season tour, Lloris, Vertonghen, Dembele, Chadli, Bentaleb, Paulinho and Michel Vorm, add to that Adebayor, Sandro and Chiriches and there are 10 players who have not had any valuable game time yet.
Two of those we are actively looking to sell, Sandro and Chiriches so I wonder how much part they will play. Having said that there are other club games going on at the same time so opportunities for all to play.

Final stages of tournament
Celtic are unlikely to be at full strength, they are in the middle of a Champions League tie.
Champions League Third Qualifying Round First Leg 30th July
Legia Warsaw (Poland) 4 Celtic 1
The Second Leg takes place in Scotland on 6th August so with qualification being paramount they surely are not going to risk certain players.
Tottenham have a big squad and have promised a strong team to face Dagenham & Redbridge so most if not all players can get a run out. Who do you put in what team, it's a bit of a dilemma for Mauricio Pochettino.
Well I've had a stab at it and it wasn't easy, doubt it's anywhere near right either.
Spurs vs Celtic
Walker Dawson Vertonghen Davies
Lamela Eriksen Lennon
Subs: Vorm, Kaboul, Naughton, Rose, Soldado, Ceballos, Mason
Spurs vs Dagenham & Redbridge
Fredericks Veljkovic Chiriches Fryers
Townsend Paulimho Chadli
Subs: Archer, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Carroll, Holtby, Coulthirst, Coulibaly, Obika
Will the players see the Celtic game as the first team squad and be quietly aggrieved if they are left at home? Do you split the squad evenly such as the four centre-backs with youngsters as subs?
So many permutations and players feelings to consider, it will be interesting to see who travels.
