HARRY WINKS vs ATLETICO MADRID


Continuing to look at our young players in Australia and after the video of 17-year-old prospect Marcus Edwards, we'll take a look at the performance of Harry Winks.

The 20-year-old started against Atletico Madrid in Melbourne today after impressing against Juventus in the first game. He once again looked to play the ball forward and played with energy and enthusiasm. He certainly looks ready for a loan and a whole season playing competitive football rather than being stuck playing against Under-21 and Under-23 players.

MARCUS EDWARDS vs ATLETICO MADRID


The youngest member of our touring party got some more minutes against Atletico Madrid after his time against Juventus. There were 10,000 more spectators at this game, over 41,000, rather different the the size of crowd he usually plays against.

Our next pre-season friendly is against Inter Milan in Norway and with the season soon to start, much of the first team will get an outing. Whether there will be any more minutes for him in that game we'll have to wait and see.

TOTTENHAM vs ATLETICO MADRID


Tottenham played another prestigious fixture in pre-season after the Juventus game, this time it was the turn of Spanish Champions League runners-up Atletico Madrid and seven of that side started this game, which they were fortunate to win, with Spurs hitting the bar and the post.

Brief match highlights can be seen in the video below which is only a little over 4 minutes so won't eat into your day too much.

VIDEO: Erik Lamela vs Atletico Madrid

2:36 pm
Erik Lamela is looking more and more the part for Tottenham now and seems able to pick out passes in the last third better than most. he is effective coming in from wide and breaking centrally when we counter attack.

He made a difference when he came on against Juventus and he was part of a good Spurs display against Atletico Madrid. He was linking up well with Janssen and hit the post with a shot that had the keeper beaten. His game can be seen in the video below.

Simeone and Pochettino

10:00 am

Mauricio Pochettino and Diego Simeone know each other form their playing time with Argentina and coaching in Spain. Both have been linked with the vacant Argentina national manager role and both have ruled themselves out for now.

As you would expect they have both been very complimentary about the other and have been catching up with each other when time permits. Both sides are in pre-season with their own objectives on this tour. Our, on the field, is to give some game time to our senior players and some experience to our youngsters. They are not often going to get the chance to play in a 100,000 seater stadium.

In the first game against Juventus there were 31,000 and again our youngsters are not used to playing in front of such crowds with such expectations. It serves many purposes and dangles the carrot for them to work even harder to become a Premier League professional footballer.

This would be a potential starting line up in LaLiga for thoise wanting to see what sort of team Atletico are playing.

ATLETICO MADRID (4-4-2) - Oblak, Vrsaljko, Savic, Godin, Filipe Luis; Saul, Gabi, Koke, GAITAN; Griezmann, Torres.
