ALLAN SAINT-MAXIMIN will make his first senior start for Newcastle United in this afternoon's Premier League game at Tottenham.

The summer signing from Nice is handed his first start as one of two changes from the side that started last weekend's 3-1 defeat at Norwich City.

Sean Longstaff is also restored to the starting line-up after dropping down to the bench at Carrow Road.

Jonjo Shelvey and Ki Sung-yueng drop out of Newcastle's starting side, with the former named amongst the substitutes.

Steve Bruce has not made any changes to his defence despite shipping three goals against Norwich, which means the Magpies are once again expected to field a five-man backline.

Heung Min Son returns to Tottenham's starting side after missing the first two games of the season through suspension.

Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Rose; Winks, Sissoko; Lamela, Lucas, Son; Kane.

Subs: Gazzaniga (gk), Davies, Vertonghen, Dier, Skipp, Eriksen, Lo Celso.

Newcastle (5-2-3): Dubravka; Krafth, Schar, Lascelles, Dummett, Ritchie; Hayden, Longstaff; Sant-Maximin, Joelinton, Almiron.

Subs: Darlow (gk), Manquillo, Fernandez, Willems, Shelvey, Atsu, Muto.
