Below are the best pictures from Newcastle United’s training session on Friday ahead of the trip to North London to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday.

Newcastle United have been training hard on Friday ahead of the Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

The Magpies will travel to North London for Sunday’s match looking to win only their second league game of the season.

Alan Pardew’s side are currently third from bottom in the standings with seven points from eight matches, having scored just eight goals and conceded 14.

Newcastle are struggling with injuries at the moment, but one player who could feature against Spurs at White Hart Lane is Ryan Taylor.

The 30-year-old versatile player has been on the sidelines since August 2012 after tearing a cruciate ligament in his right knee.

The former England Under-21 international, who can play as a full-back and as a winger, has now recovered from his injury and will be part of the Magpies’ squad that will travel to North London this weekend.

Taylor, former Tranmere Rovers and Wigan Athletic star, has been training hard on Friday, and below are the best pictures from the session.
