Tottenham entertain Newcastle in the Premier League as Antonio Conte’s men look to strengthen their charge for a top four finish.

Spurs could leapfrog Arsenal into the Champions League positions on goal difference with a victory before the Gunners travel to Crystal Palace on Monday evening.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have pulled themselves nine points clear of the relegation zone, although successive 1-0 defeats has halted the momentum of Eddie Howe’s side.

Here’s everything you need to know about the game.

Ben Davies will be available for Spurs despite being omitted from Wales’ international friendly clash with the Czech Republic after suffering from a tight quad.

Conte was hopeful of welcoming Oliver Skipp back from injury when quizzed on the midfielder’s recovery status prior to the international break, although Ryan Sessegnon and Japhet Tanganga will not feature.

The Magpies could welcome a host of players back from injury after the two-week international hiatus, with Federico Fernandez, Fabian Schar and Jonjo Shelvey pushing to be involved.

There is no return date for Kieran Trippier and Jamal Lewis, although Newcastle are hopeful talisman Callum Wilson will be involved before the start of next month.

Spurs will relish the opportunity to leapfrog Arsenal before their rivals face Crystal Palace the following evening.

Conte’s side have posted back-to-back victories in the Premier League – a rarity under the Italian since his arrival – and they have netted eight times in their last outings at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Newcastle will pose a stiff test, but the Magpies appear to be feeling the effects of Eddie Howe’s high-energy style of play in recent weeks.

Prediction: 2-0
