Tottenham Hotspur return to Premier League action on Sunday as they travel to take on Newcastle United.

Jose Mourinho's men currently sit three points outside the Champions League qualification spots and need a win to keep the pressure on their London rivals West Ham United and Chelsea. 

Spurs bounced back from their 3-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb with a comfortable victory away at Aston Villa before the international break. 

Defeat in Croatia means Tottenham's hopes of securing Champions League football this season now lie solely in their league form.

Newcastle are winless in their last six games and sit just two points above the relegation zone, albeit with a game in hand.
