Tottenham Hotspur host Newcastle United in their second home game of the Premier League season and the North-London club will be eager to get back to winning ways, after holding Manchester City to a 2-2 draw at the Etihad last week.

Last season's Champions League finalists came from behind twice to level the scoreline and although it looked like the Cityzens had won the game in stoppage time, VAR intervened and ruled out what was supposed to be a last-gasp winner.

Newcastle United are coming on the back of a 3-1 defeat at the hands of newly-promoted Norwich City and the Magpies head into the fixture as clear underdogs.

As the Tyneside club look to open their account for the season, Mauricio Pochettino's side will look to return to winning ways as they look to keep up their early season momentum.


Key Match Facts

Tottenham Hotspur have won the last four meetings between the sides.

Newcastle United's last victory against Spurs was in the final day of the 2015/16 season, when they registered a stunning 5-1 victory.

Spurs have won 70 of the previous 160 meetings between the two sides, with Newcastle winning on 58 occasions.


Team News

Spurs welcome Son-Heung Min back from suspension, after the explosive wide-man served a three-match ban for receiving a straight red card in the final game of the 2018/19 season.

The likes of Juan Foyth, Dele Alli and Ryan Sessegnon are closer to returning to full fitness but the trio are unavailable for the weekend.
