Premier League preview: Can Spurs survive a season in limbo?

However, with the player appearing not to be 100% fit it may be best for him to have another week's rest, rather than run the risk of any further damage. First, Trippier, 26, wants to ensure Tottenham see the sale of Walker as money well banked; second, Trippier eyes the England right-back position, now Walker's domain.

Victor Wanayama is also set to miss the trip due to a knee injury sustained whilst away on Spurs' pre-season tour of the US.

"Harry Kane knows very well from when he was behind [Roberto] Soldado and [Emmanuel] Adebayor what happens when you're not focused for a moment, if another player is behind you pushing for a chance if you don't give your best".

TOTTENHAM right back Kieran Trippier left Wembley on crutches on Saturday night, leaving Spurs fans questioning why they didn't replace Kyle Walker. Spurs fans won't be happy until they see someone of quality who isn't a third goalkeeper holding up a Tottenham shirt. There is no doubting the quality that the England global offers, but he was displaced in the team last season by Kieran Trippier and the Spurs manager will have faith that the right-back can step up over the next 12 months.

Amid a frenzied transfer window where numerous main contenders have been splashing the cash, it is likely to be a familiar Tottenham line-up against Newcastle on Sunday. "They've kept the nucleus of the side together but the worry will be whether teams around them will put distance between them if they stand still for too long as they finance their new stadium".

With the construction of their new stadium ongoing, Tottenham will play their Premier League home games this season at the national stadium - a venue in which Spurs have struggled.

Mauricio Pochettino's club has made the largest transfer surplus of the 20 Premier League teams this summer, taking £74.3 million (about $96.6 million) without any outgoings.

His performances have aroused the attention of bigger clubs, and he is understood to want to leave.

Victor Wanyama has recently been out with a knee injury, so Harry Winks could get the nod against the Magpies if the Kenyan global doesn't recover in time.

"He's very young", Pochettino said, according to London.Football, after the 2-0 win over Juve.

After a remarkable second-place finish previous year, can Spurs push on?

With few exceptions, no one in Pochettino's preferred starting XI is getting paid their market rate. Although they haven't signed a single player, they still have an incredible side and if they remain motivated, they should challenge at the top end of the league again.

In his opening 11 Premier League games in 2016-17, Eriksen failed to score a goal and managed just three assists, while Spurs drew half of their 12 games.

So how well prepared are Spurs to get off to a good start in 2017-18?
