Newcastle United Vs. Tottenham Hotspur, 2011 Premier League: Lineups

Two teams want to show their Premier League credentials at St. James' Park today, with undefeated Newcastle United taking on their first real challenge of the season in Harry Redknapp's Tottenham Hotspur, who're still dreaming of Champions League football. If Spurs are going to beat the Magpies, they're going to have to do it with both Aaron Lennon and Steven Pienaar missing - their right against Newcastle's left is going to be a really interesting battle.

Newcastle United Lineup (4-4-2): Tim Krul; Danny Simpson, Steven Taylor, Carlo Coloccini, Ryan Taylor; Gabriel Obertan, Yohan Cabaye, Cheick Tiote, Jonas Gutierrez; Leon Best, Demba Ba.

Substitutes: Rob Elliot, Davide Santon, Ryan Gosling, Sylvain Marveaux, Hatem ben Arfa, Peter Lovenkrands, Shola Ameobi.

Tottenham Hotspur lineup (4-4-1-1): Brad Friedel; Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Younes Kaboul, Ledley King, Kyle Walker; Gareth Bale, Scott Parker, Jake Livermore, Luka Modric; Rafael van der Vaart; Emmanuel Adebayor.
