Toon in training: Setting up for Spurs

A three-match unbeaten run has helped propel Newcastle United towards a place in the Premier League's top six - and Eddie Howe's side will face a stern test of their European qualification credentials when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday (kick-off 12:30pm BST).

Ange Postecoglou's men arrive at St. James' Park chasing a Champions League spot but the Magpies have shown signs that they are clicking into gear at the right time over recent weeks, with wins over West Ham and Fulham sandwiching their draw with Everton.

Bruno Guimarães was their matchwinner last time out at Craven Cottage, and the Brazilian international is likely to be key again if United are to topple Spurs, while a win for the hosts could be enough to lift them up to two places from eighth, depending on other results.

Serena Taylor was at the Magpies' Benton training centre on Wednesday as Guimarães and his teammates trained in preparation for the game - and she brought nufc.co.uk this gallery from a wet morning on Tyneside.
