Tottenham’s Premier League meeting with Newcastle United at the end of September has been put back 24 hours.
The game was initially set to be played on Saturday 26 September, but with Jose Mourinho’s side potentially in either Macedonia or Romania in the Europa League on the Thursday, it gives Spurs one extra day to prepare – with kick-off now 2pm in north London.
It’s part of a hectic schedule for Mourinho, which begins with their league opener against Everton on Sunday before Tottenham are in Europa League action against Bulgarian outfit Lokomotiv Plovdiv in their 2nd qualifying round next Thursday.
Upton their return from Bulgaria, Spurs face two more away trips in the space of 72 hours – following up their visit to Southampton by beginning their Carabao Cup campaign at either Plymouth Argyle or Leyton Orient, who meet in the second-round on Tuesday.
If Mourinho’s side get the required result in Bulgaria, they’ll face one of Botosani or Shkendija in the Europa League before hosting the Steve Bruce’s Magpies on the Sunday, which will be shown live on Sky Sports.
