THE TEAM NEWS

TOTTENHAM

  • Spurs picked up an excellent draw at Man City but they rode their luck at times and they will look to show further improvement once again.
  • They welcome back Son after his missed the opening two games through suspension and he will surely come straight into the starting eleven.
  • Sissoko may be the man to make way as Lamela should keep his place after his goal last week and that is the only likely change to the team.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Walker-Peters, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Rose; Winks, Sissoko; Son, Eriksen, Lamela; Kane

Unavailable: Foyth (Injured), Alli (Injured), Sessegnon (Injured), Ndombele (Injured)

Doubtful:

NEWCASTLE

  • Newcastle's miserable summer has continued into the season as they have lost their opening two games and now face a tough test at Spurs.
  • Steve Bruce's job has been made even harder by various injuries and the latest to pick up a knock is Joelinton who may miss out here.
  • The Brazilian and fellow summer arrival Saint-Maximin will both face late fitness tests but Bruce's attacking options may be limited.

Predicted line-up (5-3-2): Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Schar, Dummett, Ritchie; Hayden, Ki, Shelvey; Almiron, Joelinton

Unavailable: Colback (Injured), Lejeune (Injured), Atsu (Injured), Carroll (Injured), Yedlin (Injured)

Doubtful: Gayle (Injured), Saint-Maximin (Injured), Joelinton (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Spurs were somewhat fortuitous last week in snatching a draw against Man City but they will relish facing a struggling Newcastle team here. Steve Bruce's men already seem bereft of confidence and after being outplayed by Norwich last week, they could be on the receiving end of another heavy loss.
