    46 mins: One Spurs sub at the start of the second half as Kevin Wimmer replaces Jan Vertonghen.

    Ready to feel old? 16-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has also been brought on at the interval. He was born in 1999. Deary me.

    YOUNG BUCK 
    8/5/2015 5:19:36 PM
    53: Kieran Trippier bursts forward and attempts to put the ball back across goal, but his effort turns into a cross shot that hits the side netting.
    8/5/2015 5:25:18 PM
    54 mins: Here come the changes for Tottenham and it's superb news for the White Hart Lane faithful.

    Hugo Lloris has replaced Luke McGee.

    ALL SMILES

    56 mins: Interestingly, Nabil Bentaleb has not been withdrawn.

    If the Algerian international is going to feature at Old Trafford, he's going to be a tired boy come Saturday evening.
    8/5/2015 5:29:10 PM
    57 mins: Erik Lamela is denied by some superb last ditch Milan defending. The Ball just never, ever seems to bounce for the Argentine.


    8/5/2015 5:30:03 PM
    60 mins: New signing Carlos Bacca is on for Milan. No prizes for picking him out from the crowd.





    8/5/2015 5:34:53 PM
    63 mins: The game has dwindled in the last few minutes or so as both sides have been unsettled by the flurry of changes. Ryan Mason is on the end of a flowing Spurs move, but direct his strike straight at the goalkeeper.
    8/5/2015 5:36:10 PM
    67 mins: Carlos Bacca has livened things up for Milan in attack. The Colombian heads just wide before Ryan Mason curls an effort over the bar after patient build up play by the north Londoners.
    8/5/2015 5:38:34 PM
    68 mins: Dele Alli has been given 20 minutes to impress Mauricio Pochettino and replaces Nabil Bentaleb.

    Or has he already done enough to claim a place at Old Trafford?

    Meanwhile, our poll earlier asked whether the youngster was ready for first-team action at Spurs, or if he should be sent out on loan next season?

    A whopping 90% of you think he's ready. Unanimous.
    8/5/2015 5:42:02 PM
    GOAL: Tom Carroll sweeps home from inside the penalty area to double Tottenham's advantage. Cracking finish.
    8/5/2015 5:43:31 PM
    Kieran Trippier has helped himself to a second assist of the evening, picking out Carroll, who made a fine run before confidently tucking the ball home. Encouraging stuff from the midfielder.

    76 mins: Milan boss Sinisa Mihajlovic rings the changes for the Serie A side, and I'm not surprised. The Italians haven't been at the races this evening. They've been second best in every department.
    8/5/2015 5:50:07 PM
    80 mins: Nigel de Jong is still putting himself about as Milan finally seem to have woken from their slumber. A cute through ball is sent over the top but Hugo Lloris comes off his line to snuff out the danger.
    8/5/2015 5:54:02 PM
    83 mins: Keisuke Honda wins a free kick deep in Spurs territory, which is delivered to the back post. The ball is flicked back across goal, but an alert Federico Fazio nods it behind to safety.
    8/5/2015 5:56:09 PM
    85 mins: A powerful half volley stings Hugo Lloris' fingertips, but the Frenchman flicks the ball into the air to take the power out of the strike before collecting it unchallenged.
    8/5/2015 5:57:32 PM
    88 mins: Mousa Dembele seems to be the last Spurs player to enter the action in the closing stages. Harry Kane is still safely wrapped in cotton wool on the bench.
    8/5/2015 6:01:43 PM
    FULL TIME: A solid display from Tottenham, who proved to be too much to handle for Milan. Mauricio Pochettino has several welcome selection headaches ahead of this weekend's trip to Old Trafford.
    8/5/2015 6:02:55 PM
    All in all, that was a decent run out for the Premier League outfit. Milan were all over the place at times, while Spurs controlled proceedings throughout and can go into Saturday's clash against United with confidence.
    8/5/2015 6:10:01 PM
    Kieran Trippier has been given the Man of the Match award at pitchside after the full back helped himself to two assists. Watch out Kyle Walker!

    So that's it for Tottenham's pre-season campaign. It's been a mixed bag for the north Londoners, who have been handed the toughest of starts to the Premier League season.

    But, whether you're feeling optimistic or pessimistic about the side's top four chances, remember one thing; Harry Kane.

    MR. TOTTENHAM

    That brings an end to our live coverage for the evening, thanks for joining us. Good luck getting home to all the Londoners battling a tube strike out there!
