Tottenham are looking to build on last weekend's hard-earned point at Manchester City as they welcome Steve Bruce's Newcastle United to north London.
In a fixture that hasn't produced a draw in its last 21 iterations, a win for Spurs would make it five in a row over Newcastle and represent a solid return after what seemed like a tricky start to the new Premier League season.
By contrast, the Magpies are one of three teams yet to register a point, with Bruce yet to win the affection of a fanbase still thinking wistfully of former manager Rafa Benitez.

Betting & Match Odds
Spurs are 1/4 favourites to win this game with bet365 . Newcastle are unfancied at 12/1, while a draw is on offer at 9/2.
Mauricio Pochettino was happy with his club's business in the transfer window but is still sweating on the futures of Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen as the European window drags on.
Eriksen in particular has been a thorn in his side. Instrumental in the win over Aston Villa, the Dane started last week but is reportedly thought to still be eyeing a move away from the Premier League.
Giovani Lo Celso made his debut last week from the bench and will be hoping for a first appearance at home on Sunday, while the return of Heung-min Son is hugely welcome. He scored the only goal of the game the last time these sides met, and is on the hunt for a first strike in the league since early April.
However they are boosted, though, the shadow of Eriksen's future is proving an unwelcome distraction.
“It’s not the best situation for him and for everyone,” Pochettino said. “It is not what I think the club or the player expected it to be. You cannot put a finger on the problem. You try to minimise the problem, try to treat the situation. This is an important player who needs to help the team with his performances.
"I know really well that decisions like this are not easy but I always try to be in the position to take the best benefit for the club. And for the player, too. The most important thing is to try to take the best decision for both sides.”
Still, uncertainty over a player of Eriksen's quality is a problem Steve Bruce would probably be happy to have. He wasn't expecting an easy ride at Newcastle but his first two games have underlined the size of the task he faces on and off the pitch.
Though Jonjo Shelvey scored a late consolation against Norwich, the Magpies are yet to complete a pass inside the opposition penalty area in the Premier League. To make matters worse former striker Michael Chopra, who scored one goal in 21 league appearances for the club, claimed earlier this week that some Newcastle players have complained to him that they don't know their roles under Bruce.
"The disappointing thing is people who just generally tell lies," Bruce said. "The Michael Chopra thing was blown out of all proportion.
"It's laughable, really, for the people in the dressing room and my staff. Some of this stuff is just nonsense, but obviously it gets mentioned regularly.
"I'm just surprised that people take any attention to him. Some of this stuff is just fabricated and lies. When it's like that you think 'Why is that making national headlines which is total rubbish?'
"For the past four or five weeks it's been relentless, let's make no mistake about it, but I've grown accustomed to it and if I can protect the players then I will. Ultimately it's always my responsibility. I'm the one who sits here, I'm the one who talks to [the press], I'm the one who picks the team.
"No formation, no tactics, no substitutions, wrong - the whole thing at the minute. We can't even take a warm-up!"
