Tottenham's friendly against Reading called off

Tottenham's friendly against Reading on Saturday has been called off.

Spurs were in action at the Tottenham Hostpur Stadium on Friday as they were beaten by Norwich in a two-hour friendly ahead of next week's top flight meeting with Manchester United.

Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko, Heung-min Son and Steven Bergwijn all featured for Spurs as they played four 30-minute quarters.

The plan had been to trial two different XIs across two days, with Reading due to visit Spurs on Saturday as Mark Bowen's men prepare for a return to Championship action.

But the London Evening Standard says the match will no longer take place, forcing Jose Mourinho into a rethink with Spurs now just six days out from their first Premier League meeting for 13 weeks.
