Fernando Llorente and Harry Kane Start - Tottenham Hotspur Team vs Newport Confirmed

Fernando Llorente and Harry Kane Start - Tottenham Hotspur Team vs Newport Confirmed”

The Premier League side have won five of their last seven games in all competitions but they face a hard few weeks with Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Juventus all set to do battle with Pochettinp's troops.

Newport finished 22nd in League Two last season and missed relegation by a single point.

And it bodes well for Tottenham that they have just lost twice in their last fifteen fixtures across all competitions.

It will mark a momentous occasion for the League Two side as they will be hosting an English top-flight side for the first time in over 30 years and irrespective of the result, the club and the fans will cherish the occasion. Joss Labadie and Matthew Dolan are not certainties for this tie. The 29-year old has scored nine goals this season and would be itching to make it ten against their esteemed opponents on Saturday.

Defenders Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose are both doubts along with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, Christian Eriksen and Serge Aurier.

Moussa Sissoko joins Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama in a presumed three-man midfield, with Fernando Llorente and Harry Kane leading the line in the Tottenham attack.

Eric Dier keeps his place while Juan Foyth comes in for Davinson Sanchez alongside Jan Vertonghen in defence.

Even if Harry Kane is given a well-earned rest, the visitors to Rodney Parade should have enough ammunition in their attack to blow the lower-league team away. Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker-Peters are full-backs.

Tottenham have won by at least three clear goals in four of their last five victories and the 11/10 (2.10) quote for Spurs (-2) in the handicap market could well represent good value.

The two sides will be facing each other for the first time since consecutive cup meetings in 1959 and 1960, with Spurs winning both times.
