Newcastle United

This will be the first game for Newcastle after the much-anticipated takeover by Saudi Arabian consortium PIF.

However, that doesn’t take away the fact the Magpies are fighting relegation with no wins recorded in the Premier League this season.

Steven Bruce’s position appears to be in jeopardy however he will still oversee the Magpies against Spurs this weekend.

Possible line-ups

Darlow; Ritchie, Clark, Fernandez, Manquillo; S. Longstaff; Murphy, Willock, Hayden, Allan Saint-Maximin; Callum Wilson

Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs will look to take advantage of their impressive away record against the Magpies in the Premier League – not losing any of the last four games.

The North Londoners’ dream start to the season was flattering to deceive as they lost three consecutive games including the ones against rivals Chelsea and Arsenal.

Prior to the international break, they returned to winning ways after defeating Aston Villa at home.

A win against the Magpies would take them closer to the top four of the table.

Possible line-ups

Hugo Lloris; Emerson, Joe Rodon, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon; Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Oliver Skipp; Lucas Moura, Tanguy Ndombele, Heung-min Son; Harry Kane


Newcastle 1 – 1 Tottenham
