The Republic of Ireland international has started every Premier League game for The Magpies since he arrived from Burnley in the summer, but has been deployed in right-midfield instead of his natural role in the middle of the park. Fraser was recently called up for the Scotland squad for the upcoming Euro 2021 qualifier and Nations League games, so him playing from the off at St James' Park may just be something Tartan Army boss Steve Clarke may desire. When fit Bailly is arguably the best centre-back at the club and although he perhaps did not have the best of games last time out, the Ivory Coast international has certainly got the ability to become a regular starter granted he stays injury-free. With Isaac Hayden's impending shift to centre-back for this clash, it is expected Hendrick will fill his void, starting in central midfield.

In front of him, there are two big question marks over a couple of key players for Newcastle: Jamaal Lascelles and Jamal Lewis. Karl Darlow had one of the most impressive performances of his Newcastle career last time out against Spurs, making 10 saves - which is the most in a single game by an English goalkeeper since 2017. It could be argued that Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the best defensive full-back in the game and despite his ability to get forward being called into question, he could be shifted to a more attacking right wing-back role to accommodate the possibility of a back three. Having gone into the international break off the back of a 3-1 victory over Burnley, Newcastle will surely be raring to go when they welcome Manchester United to St James’ Park on Saturday night.

The former missed the game against Burnley due to a hamstring problem, with Fabian Schar coming in. Darlow is nailed on to remain as Newcastle's number one goalkeeper until Martin Dubravka returns from injury in a few weeks time. But the international break throws up its own quandaries for Steve Bruce to solve, not least with potential injury doubts and fitness concerns. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may reshape the team with Anthony Martial suspended and Harry Maguire possibly being given some time out of the spotlight.

In goal, Karl Darlow will continue to start in between the sticks, with Martin Dubravka still a long-term absentee. The Spurs boss has confirmed that they are likely to be without both of their new signings on Sunday. VAVEL is the go-to source to consult for its wide coverage of sport around the world.
