It's Manchester United at Old Trafford next for Tottenham after Nacer Chadli and Tom Carroll were on target in a 2-0 win over AC Milan in their last pre-season match in the Audi Cup in Munich.

After the match, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "We are very happy and very pleased. We are a very young team and this will give us confidence for Saturday.

"We scored a couple of fantastic goals. We kept the ball well. The way we have worked in pre-season has been very pleasing."

Defender Kieran Trippier, who signed for Tottenham from relegated Burnley in June, was named man of the match.

Chadli fired the opener from the edge of the area in the eighth minute before Carroll added the second with a deft finish midway through the second half.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who has been out injured with a wrist problem, came off the bench to play half an hour while midfielder Ryan Mason was also given some game time following an injury.
