Tottenham host Newcastle in the Premier League as Antonio Conte's side look to continue their push for Champions League football next season.

Spurs romped to back-to-back league victories prior to the international break, moving them to within touching distance of the top four.

In fact, if Spurs defeat the Magpies by two or more goals they will knock city rivals Arsenal out of the top four before the Gunners travel to Crystal Palace 24 hours later.

In the meantime, here's how Spurs could line up.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK) - Remains an excellent shot stopper despite some signs of falliblity this season.

Cristian Romero (CB) - A hugely impressive defender at just 23-years-old, with a bit of a nasty streak to boot.

Eric Dier (CB) - Has improved immeasurably under Conte, to the extent it was a surprise to see him omitted from the recent England squad.

Ben Davies (CB) - Afforded a rest in Spurs' international friendly clash with Czech Republic in midweek.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Matt Doherty (RWB) - His mazy runs infield have become a huge weapon for Spurs under Conte.

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) - Continues to impress since arriving from Juventus in January, providing the perfect calming influence in midfield.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) - Equally as effective with and without the ball for Spurs, rarely showing signs of being overwhelmed.

Sergio Reguilon (LWB) - With Ryan Sessegnon sidelined through injury the Spaniard will sense an opportunity to nail down a starting berth.

3. Forwards

Dejan Kulusevski (RW) - Six goal contributions for the Swede since he arrived at Spurs in January.

Harry Kane (ST) - Back to his devastating best in recent weeks, netting eight times in his last ten games.

Heung-min Son (LW) - Has very much been moulded into a pure goalscorer, netting twice against West Ham last time out.
