You can read Jack Sargeant's excellent match preview here, with team news and tactics.

The match is available in the UK to watch on BT Sport and BT Sport HD, meaning that you can watch slightly more pixels at once in HD. The game starts in the UK at 12.45pm.

For the US of America, the game is on NBCSN and online on Live Extra, and that's on at Saturday morning 7.45 am.

Team news

The big news is that Sergio Romero starts in goal ahead of Sam Johnstone. Elsewhere, the mysterious absence of Ander Herrera is back for a new season, as is the Daley Blind Centre Hal experiment. We're guessing that in attack, Ashley Young starts on one wing, Juan Mata on the other, and Memphis Depay makes his debut behind Wayne Rooney. But we could be wrong.

For Spurs, Hugo Lloris only makes the bench, and Kyle Walker gets the nod at rightback over Kieran Trippier. Erik Dier plays in midfield, for some reason.
