Match Preview: Newcastle Vs Spurs


Winger Jacob Murphy and defenders Javier Manquillo and Florian Lejeune could make their debuts for Newcastle.

Dwight Gayle is set to be available despite a recent hamstring problem but DeAndre Yedlin is out with a similar injury.

Tottenham full-back Kieran Trippier suffered minor ligament damage last weekend and will miss out, along with Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.

Danny Rose and Erik Lamela are still sidelined by long-term injuries.


Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez: “When I decided to stay, it was because I wanted to go back to the Premier League with this massive club.

“Still the transfer window is open, and I think that we can bring maybe some players in, and we have to move some players out.

“I think that Pochettino is a great manager and they have the same team that was finishing second and third in the last two seasons, so they have a very good team.”

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino on Danny Rose’s recent comments: “Sometime as a player you are frustrated for different reasons. But the players are calm and the club is calm. I forgive him.

“It was his opinion and then he understood that maybe he needed to apologise to us, and that is very good for him and the club. For me it’s not a big issue. Now we move on.”
