Erik Lamela, Kieran Trippier and Christian Eriksen looked to be in good spirits as they prepared for their long-haul flight to Australia for Tottenham’s pre-season tour.

The Spurs trio have been training with their team-mates in recent days as they step up their preparations for the new Premier League season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are currently stepping up their preparations for the new campaign as they look to bounce back from the disappointment of their failed title challenge last term.

And Lamela – who returned from his holiday earlier this month following his involvement in the Copa America with Argentina – looked to be in good spirits as he posed for a picture on the flight to Australia.

Lamela posted the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Australia.”

Spurs are gearing up for a return to the Champions League next season after they finished third in the table, behind local rivals Arsenal.
