Tottenham Hotspur fans have been moaning about their hectic fixtures schedule ahead of Sunday's clash with Newcastle United.

The Magpies head to the capital looking to bounce back from their last Premier League outing, a 3-0 home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.

However, Steve Bruce's side did produce a very impressive 7-0 win over Morecambe in the Carabao Cup during midweek, albeit with a much-changed side compared to what will take to the field against Spurs.

For Tottenham, their hectic fixture list saw them in action on Thursday night in Europa League qualifying, where they beat FK Shkendija 3-1.

It should've been a third game this week for Spurs but their Carabao Cup tie with Leyton Orient was suspended after members of the O's squad tested positive for COVID-19.

Sunday will be the first of four matches in seven days for Tottenham, with Chelsea in the fourth round, a Europa League qualifier and next weekend's Premier League clash with Manchester United all to contend with.

That could offer Newcastle the opportunity to take advantage of tired legs, especially given their 1-0 victory on the same ground last season thanks to Joelinton's winner.

With so many matches coming thick and fast, that is the main topic of conversation amongst their supporters ahead of Newcastle's visit.

Newcastle will hope to build on their 7-0 Carabao Cup win over Morecambe by returning to winning ways in the Premier League following last weekend's 3-0 home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.
