Tottenham meet Newcastle on Sunday afternoon to fuel Arsenal and fourth place in the Premier League.
The two north London clubs appear to be fighting for last place in the Champions League and Tottenham can overtake Arsenal on Sunday as the Gunners won’t place Crystal Palace until Monday.
However, as Newcastle have shown in recent months, the Magpies are no weaklings and Spurs could struggle to beat the Tyneside team.
With that in mind, we tried to predict Tottenham’s starting XI for this game.
We think Antonio Conte will only make one change from the team that beat West Ham two weeks ago.
Unfortunately for Spurs, this may be a forced change. Football London have reported that Sergio Reguilon showed up in training on Thursday and with Ryan Sessegnon also injured there could be a small reshuffle at the back.
Emerson Royal comes on for Reguilon while Matt Doherty moves to the left flank, allowing Royal to play in his preferred position at right-back.
That being said, it’s the Spurs team we’ve gotten used to in recent weeks, with Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Dejan Kulusevski leading the attack.
Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg start in midfield, while Ben Davies, Eric Dier and Cristian Romero play in the back three.
