AYOZE Perez will make his first Newcastle United start at White Hart Lane this afternoon.
Perez comes in up front against Tottenham Hotspur (1.30pm kick-off) for injured striker Papiss Demba Cisse.
The 21-year-old, signed from Tenerife in the summer, has previously made nine substitute appearances for Newcastle.
Cisse was troubled by a knee problem in the build-up to the game.
United manager Alan Pardew is still without midfielder Cheik Tiote, and Vurnon Anita starts in his place.
Meanwhile, utility player Ryan Taylor is on the bench after recovering from the twice-ruptured cruciate ligament which has kept him out for two years.
Defender Mike Williamson and striker Emmanuel Riviere remain sidelined.
NEWCASTLE UNITED: Krul; Janmaat, S Taylor, Coloccini, Dummett; Sissoko, Anita, Colback; Obertan, Perez, Gouffran. Subs: Elliot, Haidara, R Taylor, Ameobi, Cabella, Armstrong, Ferreyra.
