French midfielder Moussa Sissoko starts for Tottenham Hotspur against his former club Newcastle United in Sunday's Premier League clash.

French midfielder Moussa Sissoko has been named in the Tottenham Hotspur XI for Sunday's Premier League clash with newly-promoted Newcastle United.

Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane also all start for Spurs, while 20-year-old Kyle Walker-Peters will make his top-flight debut at right-back due to Kieran Trippier's injury.
