For the second season in a row, Tottenham begin their Premier League campaign at St. James Park. Last season goals from Dele Alli and Ben Davies were enough to see off Newcastle United, who lost Jonjo Shelvey in the the second half.

This season, Spurs will travel to the North east with multiple injury concerns and players who only returned to training this week, due to their national sides reaching the latter stages of the FIFA World Cup, including the winning captain, Hugo Lloris along with the five England players.

Our unique algorithm has predicted the Tottenham side it believes will start the game.

Football Whispers uses data to predict teams’ starting XIs, taking into account injuries, suspensions, and the statistical likelihood of a player being selected. The widget can also show you players’ recent form and stats.
