England will face a stern test when they take on Spain in a friendly at Wembley this evening and obviously there are a whole host of Premier League players on show.

Interim boss Gareth Southgate has made three changes from the side that beat Scotland in their latest World Cup qualifier on Friday night with Jordan Henderson skippering the side in the absence of Wayne Rooney.

The United captain misses out due to a minor knee injury so team mate Jesse Lingard comes in to the attack while Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy replaces Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge up front.

Nathaniel Clyne comes in at right-back with Tottenham’s Kyle Walker missing out but Danny Rose is passed fit to keep his place at left-back. Joe Hart once again starts between the sticks while Raheem Sterling and Adam Lallana continue in attack.

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta lines-up at the back for Spain while Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata also gets a run out alongside Manchester City’s David Silva.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

England

Hart, Clyne, Rose, Dier, Cahill, Stones, Sterling, Henderson, Vardy, Lingard, Lallana

Subs: Heaton, Pickford, Walker, Cresswell, Bertrand, Jagielka, Keane, Wilshere, Townsend, Walcott, Rashford, Sturridge
