Tottenham, meanwhile, start with last season's English Premier League goal king Harry Kane as the lone man and will be backed by former Newcastle captain Moussa Sissoko, Delle Ali and Christian Eriksen. The Dane's pass by met by an on rushing Alli who slotted past Rob Elliot.

Spurs lacked ingenuity and Kane was shown a yellow card for scything down Lejeune in a tackle that brought the Frenchman's outing to an early end.

But the midfielder let his fiery temper get the better of him again as he planted his full weight onto Alli's ankle right in front of referee Andre Mariner.

The game suddenly burst into life, with Gayle forcing Hugo Lloris into a save at his near post, but Newcastle's positive response soon fizzled out.

If Pochettino needs to change things at St. James' Park, he can turn to Cameron Carter-Vickers, while Victor Wanyama and Heung-Min Son are also amongst the options on the bench.
