The Lilywhites may hand starts to World Cup stars Heung-min Son and Davinson Sanchez this weekend

Tottenham Hotspur will play their second game in the International Champions Cup on Sunday morning (UK time).

Spurs are currently in the United States for a tour of America and played their opener earlier this week.

Mauricio Pochettino’s team thrashed AS Roma 4-1 with Fernando Llorente and Lucas Moura both netting braces in San Diego.

This weekend’s friendly with Barcelona will take place California and kick-off at 4.05 UK time – 20.05 USA time.

Although it is only a pre-season match, given Pochettino’s history with Espanyol, this fixture will mean a tad more to him than most.

He will most likely give minutes to some of the first-teamers who didn’t start against Serie A outfit Roma.
