Eric Dier will be fit to face Newcastle United at White Hart Lane – but Mauricio Pochettino will be without FOUR players.

Dier sustained a knock in Tottenham Hotspur's win over Monaco on Thursday night, but the midfielder will be fit in time to face Steve McClaren's side in this afternoon's Prmeier League game.

Mousa Dembele and Clinton Njie have been ruled out, while Ryan Mason and Alex Pritchard are both unavailable with ankle injuries.

Newcastle are 18th in the table, but will arrive at White Hart Lane rejuvenated after last weekend's shock 2-0 win over Liverpool.

"We expect a very tough game against Newcastle – they had a great victory last week against Liverpool," said Pochettino.

"It is a very dangerous game for us. We need to be very focused and ready to have the same motivation, energy and quality that we showed against Monaco."
