Newcastle vs Tottenham LIVE: Magpies aim to bounce back against damaged Spurs in crucial top four showdown
Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur will play a crucial game in the race for Champions League qualification. Newcastle is currently fourth in the Premier League table, one place and three points above Tottenham. Both teams go into the game after poor results in the previous week. Newcastle lost to Aston Villa and Tottenham suffered a damaging defeat against Bournemouth. Tottenham has also seen fans booing their own player Davinson Sanchez and managing director Fabio Paritici resigning from his role. Sean Longstaff will return to the Newcastle side after recovering from an illness that kept him out of the last game. Miguel Almiron is also in contention to start for Newcastle after returning from injury. While Allan Saint-Maximin has been ruled out for the game by Eddie Howe, with his return date set for next week. Tottenham will be without Emerson Royal, Ben Davies, Ryan Sessegnon, Yves Bissouma, Rodrigo Bentancur, and Lucas Moura who will stay on the sidelines as he serves the final game of his suspension. Tottenham has Clement Lenglet as a doubt for the clash after he was substituted with a knock in the first half of their defeat to Bournemouth. The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League, and talkSPORT will provide updates on the action while talkSPORT.com will be running a live blog.
