Photos: Newcastle United players in training ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash

Newcastle United will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Newcastle United players have been training today ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur at home.

The Magpies will head into the encounter at St. James’ Park on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool away from home at Anfield.

Newcastle are in a bad run of form at the moment and have lost their last five Premier League games, while scoring scoring just four goals in their last nine fixtures.

It is hugely important for John Carver’s side to pick up all three points against Tottenham on Sunday, or else they could get sucked into the relegation dogfight.

Newcastle are currently 13th in the Premier League table with 35 points from 32 matches, nine points above the relegation zone.

The players were training today, and they seemed quite serious, although there were also a few laughs.

Below are the best pictures from the training session, including that of striker Emmanuel Riviere in a golf buggy.
