Tottenham will be looking to build on their win in the north London Derby when they travel to Newcastle in the Premier League on Wednesday evening (18:00 kick off).
Jose Mourinho‘s men came from a goal behind to beat arch-rivals Arsenal on Sunday, leapfrogging their neighbours to eighth in the process. With confirmation of Man City‘s Champions League ban now lifted, a fifth-place finish will not guarantee qualification to Europe’s flagship tournament.
As it stands Spurs are currently seven points adrift Leicester City in fourth with three games remaining, so will now be focusing their energy on finishing the season in a Europa League place, which currently stretches down to seventh.
Newcastle, meanwhile, are free from the threat of relegation, but not quite in the mix for European contention. However, they will have their sights set on completing a Premier League double over Spurs for the first time since 2015/16.

- Newcastle: Dwight Gayle may have hit form since the Premier League’s return and Miguel Almiron continues to impress after some slight apprehensions, but the man on every Geordies’ lips at the minute is Allan Saint-Maximin. The summer signing from Nice came to Tyneside with a prodigious reputation in the French league, and he has only enhanced that during his stint with the Magpies. The 23-year-old is the creative hub of Bruce‘s side, snapping full-back’s ankles with his mesmeric feet and turn of pace, while also chipping in where it counts. For all his magic on the ball, the Frenchman also has an end product, providing seven direct goal contributions this season in the league, more than any other Newcastle player.
- Spurs: The north Londoners look a shadow of their former selves from last season, but when the chips are down, there is usually one player the club can rely upon, and that’s Son Heung-min. The lethal forward is the talismanic force in Mourinho‘s side and often provides the Portuguese with an injection of pace, precision and directness when Spurs look otherwise bereft of ideas going forward. Against Arsenal he took matters into his own hands and capitalised on some wayward defending from the usual suspects for the Gunners. Son anticipated, and was rewarded for his perceptive skill and finishing ability.
