Newcastle v Tottenham predicted lineups and match preview

Newcastle face Tottenham Hotspur at St. James' Park on Sunday.

To be played on Sunday 19th April 2015 at 16:00. Venue: St. James' Park, Newcastle

Odds: Newcastle 23/10, Draw 13/5, Tottenham 11/8

Newcastle United will be looking to put an end to their dire run of results when they face Tottenham on Sunday.

The Magpies lost again on Monday, with Liverpool defeating them 2-0 at Anfield, meaning John Carver has now won just two of his 14 games in charge.

His cause isn't helped this weekend as midfielder Moussa Sissoko missed out having been sent off against Liverpool, though captain Fabricio Coloccini is expected to return from injury and provide a much needed boost in defence.

For Spurs, their top four challenge has fallen by the wayside in recent weeks, and Mauricio Pochettino will be desperate to bounce back from last weekend's 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is likely to make his comeback from injury, as is centre back Jan Vertonghen after missing last week's game.

Erik Lamela could be handed a start after the poor display of Andros Townsend last week, though it may be Nacer Chadli dropping out instead.

The corresponding fixture earlier this season ended with Newcastle clinching a 2-1 win at White Hart Lane, with goals from Sammy Ameobi and Ayoze Perez completing a turnaround for the Magpies having trailed 1-0 at the break - and Carver will be hoping for a repeat performance this time around.
