We will be without Eric Dier tonight due to illness, and with Harry Winks ruled out with his troublesome ankle, and Mousa Dembele unlikely to recover due to his own ankle injury, there is a possibility of Moussa Sissoko starting against Newcastle.

Verdict:

It’s very likely that Poch will choose to play Christian Eriksen deeper alongside Victor Wanyama like he did against West Brom. However, that would also likely see the team keeping with three at the back, which didn’t work so well against the Baggies.

Pace, width and energy, attributes which were lacking last time out at the Hawthorns, will be vital against a Magpies team that will set up to frustrate. It could be a nervy night this evening if we don’t start with the right intensity. Hopefully, we get off to a flyer with an early goal.
