Young Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is set to get the nod to start alongside Harry Maguire for England in Spain tomorrow evening.

England travel to Seville sitting second in League A Group 4 of the UEFA Nations League to play a Spain side who have won their opening two games.

The Three Lions drew 0-0 in Croatia on Friday but defender John Stones and midfielder Jordan Henderson were both booked, which will see them miss the Spain game.

According to national reports, Gomez is set to start in central defence ahead of Brighton defender Lewis Dunk, who was an unused substitute in Croatia and is still waiting to make his debut.

Dunk received his first call-up into the senior squad last week.

Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks is likely to start in place of Henderson.
