Newcastle United vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

Two sides who have endured frustrating transfer windows meet in the season opener as Newcastle United host Tottenham.

Newcastle have managed to add the likes of Salomon Rondon and Ki Sung Yeung, however supporters have again been frustrated.

Perhaps most importantly, Rafael Benitez has remained in charge of the club.

With just six hours remaining in the summer transfer window, Tottenham have incredibly signed no one.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino and key man Harry Kane have signed contract extensions though.

Match history
Tottenham won both meetings last season, including a 2-0 away victory on the opening day.

Harry Kane scored the only goal in the reverse fixture, a win that guaranteed Champions League football.

Team news
New signing Rondon is expected to come straight into the XI here, with Dwight Gayle exiting the club as part of the same deal.

Mohammed Diame and Martin Dubravka are doubts for the fixture, but both should be fit enough to feature.

Tottenham are expected to be without numerous players who went far in the World Cup, however Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier could start here.

Pochettino will also be without Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko who are injured.

Expected starting XI’s
Newcastle United (4-4-2): Dubravka; Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett; Ritchie, Diame, Shelvey, Kenedy; Perez, Rondon
Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Aurier, Sanchez, Carter-Vickers, Davies; Dier, Dembele; Lucas Moura, Eriksen, Son; Llorente
