Newcastle have named their team to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League today.

Steve Bruce has handed a full debut for summer signing Allan Saint-Maximin, after he missed the 3-1 defeat to Norwich through injury.

If Newcastle are going to get a result against Tottenham then they are going to need to counter quickly, with Miguel Almiron lacking in pace.

Saint-Maximin’s direct play and speed on the ball should allow Newcastle to counter with pace and cause Spurs problems on the break, as opposed to the slow build-up we saw against Norwich and Arsenal in the opening two games. 

Joelinton will also be hoping that Saint-Maximin can deliver some quality crosses for him to attack, as he goes in search of his first goal for the club after his move from Hoffenheim in the summer.

Will Saint-Maximin be a success this season?
