Newcastle United’s new era of expected riches and Saudi-fuelled optimism starts on Sunday afternoon as they host Tottenham Hotspur at St. James’ Park.

The P.I.F. consortium finally purchased the club from previous owner Mike Ashley during the international break, leading to delirious scenes outside St. James’ Park and human rights groups including Amnesty International raising concerns about links to the Saudi Arabian government. Steve Bruce remains in the dugout, for now, and will take charge of his 1000th match as a manager, as his side faces a Spurs team which defeated Aston Villa last time out to end a run of three consecutive losses.

Newcastle remain without a win in the Premier League this season and Bruce will desperate to make a positive first impression with his new employers, who have been linked with a glut of managers around Europe as potential replacements for the 61-year-old. The Magpies are currently 18th in the table, ahead only of the equally winless Burnley and Norwich City, while Spurs sit ninth, having scored only six goals in their opening seven matches.

39 mins: Off the bar! Spurs win another corner that Son delivers beautifully into the middle of the box. Equally great is the leap from Lucas Moura who gets above his marker and whips a head onto the ball. He hits it well and rattles the crossbar with his effort!
