Tottenham travel to Newcastle United on Sunday aiming to build on the victory over Aston Villa last time out in the Premier League, and Nuno Espirito Santo has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.
According to The Guardian, two Spurs players have tested positive for Covid-19. There are rumblings on Twitter (via @pokeefe1) that those players are Son Heung-min and Bryan Gil – but it must be emphasised, these are rumours and have not been confirmed as of yet. In any case, we’ve left Son and Gil out of our predicted line-up.
The duo’s potential absence may allow Steven Bergwijn to make an immediate return to the starting XI following his recovery from injury. The Dutchman will join Lucas Moura and Harry Kane in the front three.
Those attackers will be supported by Tanguy Ndombele, who will play in front of the more defensive midfielders, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp. Giovani Lo Celso will be on the bench. The back four is likely to consist of Emerson Royal, Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Sergio Reguilon, with Hugo Lloris between the sticks.
