Newcastle United double injury boost ahead of the Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

Lewis Hall is set to feature in Newcastle United’s Premier League clash at home to Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon, with Tino Livramento also back with the squad.

Hall was a doubt heading into fixture after Magpies boss Eddie Howe revealed on Friday morning that Hall hadn’t trained since last weekend’s 1-0 win at Fulham.

“Lewis Hall has not trained at all this week so he has been a slight concern from the previous game,” said Howe. “[The injury is] tightness in quad, it’s not a muscle pull directly, but enough to see him miss training this week and he’s a doubt for the game.”

However, Hall looks set to be involved for the visit of Spurs after arriving - as captured by NewcastleWorld - at St James’ Park ahead of the 12:30 kick-off.

Following injuries to both Kieran Trippier and Livramento, which has saw Dan Burn move back into the centre of defence, Hall has started the last two matches against Everton and Fulham.

Livramento had been sidelined for since the 4-3 win over West Ham two weeks ago. Speaking about the full-back yesterday, Howe said: “The closest player to coming back is Tino Livramento, whose not joined in training yet but has been more visible on the grass so he’s the closest.

“Other players are sort of in the background and beginning to improve quite quickly so I’m hopeful that in the not too distant future we can get three or four players back.”
