Newcastle are without without Emre (calf), James Milner (foot) and Stephen Carr (hamstring) for the game today at White Hart Lane.
Claudio Cacapa is also out after news this week that the Brazilian will be missing for at least a month having picked up another groin strain in training.
But as expected, Kevin Keegan fields an unchanged side for the 3rd game in a row at White Hart Lane this afternoon. Damien Duff comes in as a substitute in place of Charles N’Zogbia.
For Spurs Ledley King is rested and Michael Dawson partners Jonathan Woodgate in the center of their defense.
