Where to Watch

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm GMT. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:35pm GMT.


Newcastle have suffered a dip in form since the turn of the year, winning only one game in their last seven matches in all competitions. The Magpies are placed ninth in the league table with 37 points from 25 matches played so far.

Alan Pardew's side were humbled 3-0 in their previous league fixture against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last Saturday. Eden Hazard's hat-trick was enough to condemn the away side to their second straight defeat following their 0-3 setback in the Tyne-Wear derby against Sunderland earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Spurs come into this game on the back of a 1-0 victory against Everton in the league clash at White Hart Lane on Sunday. Emmanuel Adebayor scored the game's only goal in the second-half to help his side go above the Toffees in the league table.

Tim Sherwood's side have won six out of their last nine league matches, with their only defeat coming against Manchester City (1-5) last month.

The north London side are breathing down Liverpool's necks in the race for a top four finish and at present sit fifth in the league table, with 47 points, three less the Reds' tally of 50 points after 25 matches.

What Managers Say

Alan Pardew: "He's [Sherwood] got a good squad. He is very fortunate to get that position in terms of the players he's got, it's a fantastic team. But he is still doing a good job nevertheless and it will be a tough ask for us. I'm not hiding behind the fact that we have a load of injuries. We're certainly not looking to limp through this, we're looking to win and whatever team I put out there we'd have to look to win it."

Tim Sherwood: "On their day, Newcastle can beat anyone. We know they have threats so we have to respect that, hopefully nullify what they have to offer and impose ourselves. You have to have character to go and play in front of a big, expectant crowd, which it is at Newcastle, and we're hoping to keep them quiet. If we do, we can get a positive result. We have to concentrate on our own game and a big result against Everton will mean nothing if we can't capitalise at Newcastle."
