Team News is imminent. 

Team News will be announced at 3pm as you can follow all the build up here with VAVEL.

"We need to keep our feet on the ground and you have to remember we are a very young team," says Spurs manager Pochettino. "We expect a very tough game against Newcastle - they had a great victory against Liverpool last week and it is a very dangerous game for us."

McClaren's opposite number has played down title talk insisting they are just focusing on Newcastle. "If we start to speak about challening for objectives at the end of the season, maybe we will we will be spending energy on things that are not important today. 

"It is not our mindset and were not thinking of that," says McClaren. "It's like starting a game, you haven't started well and are a goal down approaching half-time but two halves are never the same in football.. momentum can change very quickly. We have to make sure we improve from now on in our consistency."

McClaren will he hoping that isn't the case here. The Newcastle boss is also expecting a tough test and revealed his side wouldn't take fourth bottom at the end of the season: "It's going to be very competitive down there."

Tottenham moved into White Hart Lane in 1899, beating Notts County 4-1 in-front of a crowd of 5000 spectators. The hosts biggest ever win at the stadium came in 1960, a 13-2 victory over Crewe in the FA cup

The Toon Army head into this clash having left White Hart Lane with successive wins on their last two visits. 

Tottenham will be looking to Harry Kane again today as the England striker finds himself in a rich vein of form. Newcastle's backline will have to keep him quiet if they want to leave with anything this afternoon.

Ayoze Perez will also be hoping to chip in with a goal having seen himself dropped to the bench in recent weeks. 

The latter made United's first goal last weekend courtesy off a Martin Skrtel deflection. Wijnaldum then ran clear through chipping the ball over the on rushing Simon Mignolet to seal all three points. 

Steve McClaren will be hoping his key players shine in the capital with star man Georginio Wijnaldum starting to become a real hit at St James' Park.

Mauricio Pochettino's side haven't lost since the opening day and with Harry Kane starting to fire, the London outfit will fancy there chances again today. 

The Magpies sit 18th in the Premier League table, albeit a win will see them leap out of the relegation places. Spurs are flying high in 5th and could go into the top four with a win, at the expense of Manchester United
