Team News
Tottenham fans will be happy to know that this Sunday should mark the return of their quicksilver Korean attacker Heung Min Son, who has been unavailable due to a suspension following his red card at the tail end of 2018/19 against Bournemouth.

Son – who scored 20 goals in all competitions last season – also has history against Newcastle, as he scored a late winner for Tottenham in their last game against the Magpies at Wembley in February, part of a hot run for the attacker as he scored in 3 straight games following his return from international duty.

Right now Son is on somewhat of a lean streak – he hasn’t scored since his famous brace against Manchester City in last season’s Champions League – which means he’ll be gunning to find the back of the net on Sunday, and that could prove to be bad news for Steve Bruce’s side.
Tottenham Hotspur: L-L-D-W-D

Newcastle have found it tough against Tottenham in recent years; Spurs did the double over them in both 2018/19 and 2017/18, and across those four games they’ve only managed to score one goal. The player who found the net? Spanish striker Joselu, who has since moved to Alaves.

However, the Magpies can comfort themselves in the fact that they arguably dished out the worst beating that Spurs have ever taken under Pochettino – in the final game of the 2015/16 season, and to add insult to injury, the 5-1 defeat came after Newcastle had already been relegated.

For those who’ve forgotten, Tottenham were attempting to chase eventual champions Leicester City in the race for the Premier League title, but a 2-2 draw with Chelsea handed the crown to the Foxes – and Spurs then self-destructed, losing 1-2 to Southampton before their heavy loss to Newcastle

Newcastle United: D-L-W-L-L
