Newcastle United vs Tottenham: Confirmed starting Xis

Today’s afternoon kick-off in the Premier League sees Newcastle play hosts to Tottenham Hotspur, in a fixture featuring two sides with little left to play for this season.

Actions off the field could well be the bigger story this afternoon; amid a run of five consecutive Premier League defeats, huge protests – and even a potential boycott – are planned outside St. James’ Park this afternoon, with fans particularly dissatisfied at Mike Ashley’s decision to appoint John Carver as Alan Pardew’s replacement
