Newcastle United have a huge Premier League game upcoming and Eddie Howe will be forced to answer some tricky lineup questions. For example, will Harvey Barnes be granted with a start due to his good form, or will he be resorted to another bench performance? With that in mind, here is the predicted Newcastle lineup vs Tottenham...

Predicted Newcastle lineup vs Tottenham

GK - Martin Dubravka. He'll feel confident after putting in a stellar shift in the last Premier League match. Of course, he'll have a tougher time against Tottenham but with Nick Pope injured, Dubravka will start.

RB - Emil Krafth. With Trippier out injured, Krafth will start in this match. He's a good backup option and he played well against Fulham last time out.

CB - Fabian Schar. Mr Reliable for Newcastle, it was no surprise to see him put in a good display against Fulham.

CB - Dan Burn. Filling in well at centre back and wore the captains armband against Fulham. He'll get another start against Tottenham and will have his work cut out for him.

LB - Lewis Hall. The English loanee is finally getting a good run-out under Eddie Howe, although it is massively helped by the injuries to Kieran Trippier and Tino Livramento.

CM - Bruno Guimaraes. Tottenham have a great midfield, so Bruno G's firepower will be required and he often steps up in big games.

CM - Sean Longstaff. His work rate will be key in the midfield and he'll need to cover a lot more ground than usual against the top four challengers Spurs.

CM - Elliot Anderson. Remains to be seen whether or not Joe Willock will come back in time after he limped off against Fulham last week. That said, I think Anderson is the safest bet if Willock isn't 100% fit for this game.
