Tottenham will be without club record signing Tanguy Ndombele for the visit of Newcastle.

The midfielder has a minor thigh injury and will miss out, along with Juan Foyth and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring).

Son Heung-min is back from a three-game ban and Dele Alli has returned to training after a hamstring injury.

Newcastle striker Joelinton is fit. The £40million record signing limped out of the loss at Norwich with a hip problem but has returned to training and is available.

He could be joined by winger Allan Saint-Maximin – who missed the game at Carrow Road with a hamstring problem – and midfielder Christian Atsu, who has also resumed training after recovering from a knee issue.

However, full-back DeAndre Yedlin (groin), central defender Florian Lejeune (knee) and Dwight Gayle (hamstring) are still missing, while fellow striker Andy Carroll continues his quest for full match fitness.

Provisional Tottenham squad: Lloris, Gazzaniga, Walker-Peters, Aurier, Dier, Alderwerield, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Rose, Dier, Winks, Sissoko, Wanyama, Lo Celso, Eriksen, Skipp, Son, Alli, Lamela, Nkoudou, Moura, Parrott.

Provisional Newcastle squad: Dubravka, Darlow, Manquillo, Krafth, Dummett, Fernandez, Schar, Lascelles, Clark, Shelvey, Hayden, S. Longstaff, Ki, Ritchie, Willems, Atsu, Almiron, Saint-Maximin, Joelinton, Muto.
