Isaac Hayden is determined to help Newcastle United start a new era in style against Tottenham Hotspur at St. James' Park.
The midfielder told NUFC TV that it's an "exciting time" for the club after last week's takeover by PIF, PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media - but admitted that the most immediate issue for Steve Bruce and the players is gaining their first Premier League victory of the season on Sunday (kick-off 4.30pm BST).
Bruce has been boosted by the likely return of Jonjo Shelvey, Callum Wilson and skipper Jamaal Lascelles, although Martin Dúbravka and Paul Dummett remain sidelined and Miguel Almirón is expected to miss out after playing three times for Paraguay over the last few days.
Spurs, meanwhile, will make a decision on Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero, Emerson Royal and Davinson Sánchez, who have also been in international action in South America this week, but Nuno Espírito Santo has Ben Davies and Steven Bergwijn back in training.
