Owen was injured in a collision with England team-mate Paul Robinson and spent five months on the sidelines as he battled his way back to fitness just in time for the following summer's World Cup finals.
Owen: "Looking back at that day at Spurs, it was a bad part of my career, as it probably set the ball rolling for all the injuries - the broken foot and cruciate - I have had at Newcastle.
"It was a troubled time, but certainly I don't believe it's an unlucky place.
"I have played there many times, and scored goals there before.
"I am looking forward to it - I won't be concerned going into the game. We have had a decent week and pushed up the table a little bit."
