Newcastle will be looking to get their Premier League campaign off to a flying start when Tottenham travel up on Sunday.

The Magpies will be keen to stamp their authority on the top flight once more after coming up from the Championship last season, but are faced with a hugely difficult contest against Spurs.

Both sides have found the summer transfer window frustrating. Rafa Benitez has admitted that he has struggled to strike deals in the frantic market that he finds himself in, while his counterpart Mauricio Pochettino is yet to actually make a signing, with under three weeks of the window remaining.

It’s sure to be a difficult game in what will be an intense atmosphere at St James’ Park, with the Newcastle faithful all eagerly anticipating their side’s return to the big time.

So, without further ado, take a look at how we think Benitez will set his side out against Spurs!
