Tottenham Hotspur v Newcastle United: When is kick-off? Is it on TV? What’s the latest injury news?

Newcastle United are back in action following the last international break of the season - but they face a tough test against Tottenham Hotspur.

After suffering late back-to-back defeats to Everton and Chelsea, the 16-day gap between fixtures probably came at the right time for Eddie Howe’s side who spent part of the break away in Dubai.

Antonio Conte had no such luck however, as he saw a huge portion of his squad head off for international duties across the globe.

Neither man was in charge the last time the two sides met at St James’s Park in October. On that occasion, a 3-2 Spurs win dampened a party atmosphere on Tyneside which was celebrating seeing its first game under new ownership.

The Magpies will also be sweating over the fitness of Martin Dubravka and Fabian Schar who both had to withdraw from international duty through illness and injury.

Spurs, meanwhile, will assess the fitness of Ben Davies who left the Wales squad earlier this week as a ‘precaution’ after suffering a minor thigh injury.

Ryan Sessegnon and Japhet Tanganga will certainly miss the game on Sunday whilst Oliver Skipp is a doubt.
