Mauricio Pochettino has named his Tottenham Hotspur side which takes to the field against Newcastle United in North London this afternoon.
Juan Foyth and Ryan Sessegnon continue to miss out with respective ankle and hamstring injuries and have been joined on the sidelines by club record signing Tanguy Ndombele who picked up a slight thigh problem in training and will not be risked ahead of next Sunday’s North London derby at Arsenal.
Heung-min Son is available after his suspension and as expected, comes back into the side to face the Magpies at the expense of Christian Eriksen.
Harry Kane has scored in just two of his eight Premier League appearances versus Newcastle, converting only two of his 23 shots against the Magpies (8.7% conversion rate)
This is who starts for Tottenham:
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Rose, Winks, Sissoko, Lamela, Lucas, Son, Kane.
Subs: Gazzaniga, Davies, Vertonghen, Dier, Skipp, Eriksen, Lo Celso
