Predicted Tottenham and Newcastle line-ups: Huge match for both sides

Here is how we predict Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United will line up this weekend:

To be played on Sunday 13th December 2015 at 16:00. Venue: White Hart Lane, London

Odds: Tottenham 2/5, Draw 18/5, Newcastle 7/1

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Newcastle United to White Hart Lane on Saturday with Mauricio Pochettino’s men looking to make it 15 league games undefeated.

Newcastle have struggled this season and find themselves deep in a relegation battle, currently stuck in the bottom three on goal-difference. But Steve McClaren’s side dug deep and got an impressive 2-0 win against Liverpool last time out so there is a chance they could cause a shock if Spurs are not at their best.

The Newcastle squad has had more time to prepare for this encounter, with Tottenham’s Europa League match against AS Monaco taking place earlier this week, but now both sets of players will be fully focused on the task in hand.

In early team news, Tottenham are without Ryan Mason and Alex Pritchard but they were boosted by the return to training of Nacer Chadli and Nabil Bentaleb on Wednesday.

As for Newcastle, they are without Tim Krul, Cheick Tiote, Rolando Aarons, Gabriel Obertan, Steven Taylor and Massadio Haidara.
