What’s the team news?

Richarlison is still out with a calf injury, while Dejan Kulusevski (hamstring) is a major doubt.

Lucas Moura could only be an option from the bench once he recovers from a hamstring injury, while Emerson Royal is back from a three-game infield ban that could see Matt Doherty ruled out.

Joelinton is a doubt with a knee injury after coming off at half-time against Everton in midweek, so Joe Willock could replace him.

Eddie Howe will also be without Emil Kraft (knee), Matt Ritchie (calf), Alain Saint-Maximin (thigh), Carl Darlow (ankle) and Alexander Isak (thigh).

Predictive compositions

Tottenham: Lloris; Romero, Dyer, Lenglet; Emerson, Heuberg, Bentancourt, Sessegnon; Son, Kane, Perisic

Newcastle: Pope; Trippier, Schar, Bothman, Bern; Guimaraes, Longstaff, Wheelock; Elmiron, Wilson, Murphy


Tottenham: 21/20

Draw: 5/2

Newcastle: 5/2


Spurs struggle for rhythm and consistency in their performances, which have been difficult to watch at times. Howe’s Newcastle proved a tough, frustrating game against Manchester United at Old Trafford, where Spurs were badly beaten, so we’ll be leaning towards a draw. 1-1.
