An immediate change in on-field performance may be on the agenda, with Newcastle so far struggling and yet to win in the Premier League.
Spurs visit after a much-need confidence-boosting win over Aston Villa before the players departed for their international fixtures.
That win may have kept the wolves from Nuno Espirito Santo’s door for the time being but the Tottenham manager will be hoping to get on a roll with a win in what could be a curious afternoon at St. James’ Park.
