Thanks to SpursOfficial we may be getting a clearer picture of who is healthy and who's going to be out for Tottenham Hotspurs's English Premier League Fixture with Newcastle United on Sunday. Both Niko Kranjcar and Vedran Corluka are out after picking up knocks while on international duty with Croatia. This shouldn't be too big of a blow though as neither player was likely to be in the first XI.

The player we all want to know about is Emmanuel Adebayor. He's still viewed as 50-50 for the match. Aaron Lennon and Sandro are in the same boat and will likely face late fitness tests to see if they can go. On the bright side both Danny Rose and Steven Pienaar were full participants in training today and both could be in the squad this weekend.

It's good to see Pienaar returning to fitness. With Aaron Lennon injured he's our best option on the right flank (despite the fact that I always forget he exists). His defensive abilities might be a big help to Kyle Walker as the pair go up against Jonas Gutierrez this weekend.
