In the Premier League, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are about to play.
Given his limited options, Eddie Howe has, predictably, named an unchanged side once again.
But with Sean Longstaff and Callum Wilson both back in the mix, Howe has options on the bench for the first time in a few games.
We anticipate that Longstaff will log some time today.
Sean Longstaff is probably going to play at some point today, but Howe might play Callum Wilson a little more cautiously.
We now have a more formidable bench.
However, Alexander Isak has appeared to be having some difficulties lately, so Wilson breathing down his neck once more might be just the motivation he needs.
In the meantime, Richarlison leads the line for Ange Postecoglu’s team as Son Heung-min, who started for Spurs on Thursday, has recovered from the knock that forced his early withdrawal.
Newcastle’s record against Spurs is strong.
After suffering setbacks during the week, both teams are itching for a victory. This season, Newcastle’s only away victory came against Sheffield United, 8-0. The team’s away record has been appalling.
Spurs will be trying to get back after going five games without a victory.
This is going to be tight, but we have the advantage that Joelinton really enjoys scoring goals against Spurs, and the Magpies have a strong home and away record against them.
