Jose Mourinho wants his players to “fight” for a spot in his side as Tottenham enter a busy week of action.

The Portuguese manager’s comments come with the future of Dele Alli up in the air following numerous omissions from the Tottenham squad.

Meanwhile, Newcastle will surely be desperate to turn things around after their bright start to the Premier League season was snuffed out by an awful display against Brighton.

Manager Steve Bruce oversaw his side get dismantled at home by the Seagulls, and he will be dreaming of a similar result in this fixture to last season – where the Magpies won as Joelinton scored the only goal.

Here’s everything you need to know:

When is it?

The fixture will kick-off at 2pm BST at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

How can I watch it?

The match will be televised on Sky Sports Premier League, with coverage beginning from 1pm.

Line-ups:

Tottenham XI: Lloris, Doherty, Dier, Sanchez, Davies, Hojbjerg, Winks, Lo Celso, Lucas, Son, Kane.

Newcastle XI: Darlow, Manquillo, Fernandez, Lascelles, Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Hendrick, Almiron, Joelinton, Wilson.

Odds:

Tottenham: 4/9

Draw: 7/2

Newcastle: 13/2

Prediction:

With the duo of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min continuing to impressively perform, it is difficult to look past a Tottenham side that are keen to generate momentum. However, they usually struggle against teams like Newcastle, who drop deep, sit tight and play on the counter. In fact, Newcastle have won four of their last six league trips to Spurs, but I don’t think this run will continue. 2-0 Tottenham.
