Tottenham Injury Update Ahead of Newcastle Game

The match is schedule to take place tomorrow morning at 10:45am BST, and speaking to the media ahead of the friendly match, Ange confirmed that there will be two players missing from the squad tomorrow.

He said:

“Cuti for personal reasons, he’s got to fly back to Argentina. So we kind of knew that, some personal reasons. Pierre had an injury going into the last game and was kind of touch and go and after the game pulled up sore. Again because we were getting straight on a flight, it just didn’t make any sense to bring guys like that along.”

“Everyone else got through it unscathed from the weekend so we’ll have a full compliment from the squad we took away and some young players as well and we’ll, if we can, get them some game time.”
