Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to make it seven points out of a possible nine when they face Newcastle United on Sunday.

The Magpies have suffered successive defeats under new manager Steve Bruce which has seen the former Manchester United defender to call a team meeting to question the intensity of his players (Telegraph).

Following their 3-1 defeat at Norwich on Saturday, Bruce is already looking to rectify his first crisis on Tyneside.

They have received some positive news ahead of their trip to the new Totttenham Hotspur Stadium after their club record signing Joelinton was forced off against the Canaries with a hip problem.

The £40million recruit from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim underwent a scan on the problem which revealed there was no damage.


Tottenham will certainly be looking to expose Newcastle’s defensive frailties on Sunday and is a fixture that the North London faithful will be expecting to win.

Maurico Pochettino will be boosted by the return of Heung-min Son following his three match suspension and the Spurs boss will certainly have the luxury of a selection headache.
