Tottenham v Newcastle build-up, pre-match team news & previous line-ups:
After losing to Everton on the opening day of the 2020/21 season, Jose Mourinho’s side have won their next three games in all competitions, bouncing back to beat Southampton 5-2 and reach the final round of Europa League qualifying.
But Spurs are dealing with somewhat of a fixture pile up, having travelled to North Macedonia to beat Shkendija in their Europa League third-qualifying round tie on Thursday ahead of Sunday’s game. Then, they host Chelsea in the League Cup on Tuesday before another Europa League tie against Maccabi Haifa.
Keeping the focus on Newcastle’s visit, Spurs have a good record against the Magpies, winning five of the past six league meetings. However, the one defeat during that run was in this fixture last season, also on matchday three.
Newcastle are also one of Tottenham’s so-called bogey teams, winning 10 away games against the North London side in the Premier League, with only Manchester United and Chelsea faring better. But at the same time, Mourinho loves playing Newcastle at home, winning all eight such games in all competitions at Chelsea and Manchester United.
Can Newcastle hurt Tottenham once more, or will the Mourinho machine step up another gear?
Tottenham (vs Shkendija): Hart; Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Davies; Winks, Ndombele; Bergwijn, Alli, Lamela; Son.
Newcastle (vs Morecambe): Gillespie; Krafth, Lascelles, Clark*, Yedlin; Murphy, Hayden, S Longstaff, Ritchie; Almiron, Joelinton.
Both Tottenham and Newcastle heavily rotated for their respective cup ties in midweek and are expected to revert to their strongest XIs this weekend. Tottenham will remain without Gareth Bale, but Sergio Reguilon may play some role while Ciaran Clark is a doubt for Newcastle after picking up a knock on his thigh against Morecambe.
Player to watch: Harry Kane
Harry Kane has been directly involved in five goals in a Premier League game for the first time since May 2017 (vs. Leicester).

Harry Kane rarely has a problem scoring against opposition teams, but over the years Newcastle have done fairly well in keeping the Englishman quiet (well, better than others). In his 11 games against the Magpies across all competitions Kane has scored just five goals, but the 27-year-old looks ready to improve on that this weekend.
Rather than having to contend with his usual August hoodoo, the delayed Premier League start means Kane has been able to kick off in September mode and already he has been directly involved in five goals. All five of those involvements came in Tottenham’s 5-2 win over Southampton last weekend, with Kane setting up Son for all four of the South Korean’s goals before finishing the scoring himself.
The partnership of Kane and Son is one that has flourished over the years and, since the start of the 2015/16 campaign, no duo have combined for more goals than their 24. Son’s involvement may be restricted at the weekend after he played the full 90 minutes against Shkendija on Thursday but Kane’s 30 minutes will ensure he remains fresh and match fit for Sunday.
That means Kane will be ready to test and potentially hurt a Newcastle defence that shipped three goals against Brighton last weekend, be it with goals of his own or more assists, such is the versatility and ability of the Englishman.
