Newcastle United Team News   
Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce will have Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey and Callum Wilson available for his 1,000th game as a manager when Tottenham head for St James' Park on Sunday. Midfielder Shelvey, who has been out since the opening game of the season with a calf problem, is also fit, leaving only keeper Martin Dubravka (foot) and defender Paul Dummett (calf) on the sidelines.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News   
Tottenham will be missing two unnamed players due to them testing positive for Covid-19 during the week. Spurs quartet Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez and Emerson Royal, like the Magpies' Miguel Almiron, could be involved following their return from World Cup qualifiers in South America. Boss Nuno Espirito Santo has hinted that some of his other players have returned from international duty with injuries. Steven Bergwijn could be involved after he returned to training following a lengthy absence with an ankle issue.

Nuno's View   
“It will be a great atmosphere, that’s for sure, and that’s something we’ll have to be aware of. At the same time, ignore it! Ignore the noise and focus on our task. Since the takeover, you can see the fans are happy, so we expect a tough atmosphere. It’s up to us to go there, realise it’s going to be tough but to play, to compete and to be solid. It’s good team, good players and, sometimes, the results don’t reflect what you do, but we look at Newcastle and know it’s going to be tough. Yes, Villa was important, especially because we performed really well. We were fantastic in terms of our organisation, compact, we reacted immediately when we conceded and finished the game really strong with fantastic football and good chances. That should be our starting point against Newcastle."

Lot of credit to the team for getting through all that with three points today.
Feels like we could have easily let the occasion/s get to us.

Yeah to the players and Nuno for getting the win.

I thought Dier was fine and an anomalous freak own-goal doesn’t really indicate future performance

Dier has had a good season

But think we should have sold Sanchez and Rodon should be 3rd choice CB, in hindsight. I'm sure the plan us to bring in another going forward with Romero.

No it doesn't but it was comical from him. Ask yourself. Is he the type of CD you want playing with Romero in the long term? He is the weak link and any oppo manager will target him.

It does make sense to try and cash in for Sanchez for the upgrade. Don’t really see the point in Rodon if he gets no minutes
