Tottenham Hotspur Possible Starting Line-Up For Their Next English Premier League Match

Newcastle United's new era begins on the pitch at St James' Park on Sunday afternoon, as the Magpies welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Tyneside in the Premier League.

The hosts lost 2-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the final game of the Mike Ashley era, while Spurs claimed a confidence-boosting 2-1 win over Aston Villa.

Nuno Espirito Santo's record in London derbies is already looking bleak following three successive defeats to Crystal Palace, Chelsea, and Arsenal last month, but the Lilywhites managed to claim a crucial win over Aston Villa just before the international break.

Pierre Emile Hojbjerg put Spurs 1-0 up before halftime before Ollie Watkins leveled proceedings midway through the second period, but Matt Targett's own goal four minutes after his teammate's leveler saw Santo's rut in the Premier League come to a welcome end.

A comprehensive 5-1 thrashing of NS Mura in the Europa Conference League - during which Harry Kane bagged a hat-trick - also helped to boost morale within the North Londoners ranks, and a record of three wins from their last four in all tournaments is a positive streak for Spurs on the face of it.

However, the Lilywhites can only boast a dismal five wins from their last 18 Premier League games away from home - conceding at least twice in six of their last seven on the road - and nothing can be taken for granted against a Newcastle side buoyed by the support of a raucous St James' Park crowd.

Tottenham duo Ryan Sessegnon and Steven Bergwejn may have to remain sidelined for a little while longer - although the latter is closing in on a return - while Ben Davies has returned to training following an illness and Matt Doherty picked up a knock over the break.

Doubts persist over the availability of South American quartet Cristian Romero, Giovani Lo Celso, Davinzo Sanchez, and Emerson Royal, but Spurs are reportedly confident that all four will be in the squad after arriving back in the UK on Friday.

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:

Lloris; Tanganga, Rodon, Dier, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Skipp; Lucas, Ndombele, Son; Kane
