Tottenham Prediction – Can Tottenham extend Newcastle’s woes?

Tottenham grabbed what could prove to be an important point in last weekend’s 2-2 draw away at Manchester City as they foiled the current title holders’ plans of all 3 points at the Etihad Stadium and in turn further boosted Tottenham’s morale ahead of this weekend’s action.

A 3-1 home win over Aston Villa on the opening day of the new Premier League season gave Tottenham the perfect start to their bid for, dare I say, a tilt at the league title, but more realistically, their bid for another top four finish in the top flight.

Overall form at home for Tottenham, whether at Wembley Stadium or their new home, has been very solid as Spurs have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 10 matches on home soil, which was a surprising 1-0 defeat by West Ham towards the end of last season.

But Sunday’s hosts will be in confident mood of grabbing all 3 points in this clash as they’ve won all of the 4 previous meetings against Newcastle United, and they look set to continue this trend here.

Newcastle United Prediction – Can Newcastle relieve early Bruce pressure?

The jury was out on the appointment of new Newcastle United manager, Steve Bruce, even before a ball was kicked in anger, but having suffered back-to-back defeats to start their new Premier League season in disastrous fashion, the pressure will have risen a couple of notches on the former Sunderland boos.

An opening day 1-0 defeat to Arsenal at St James’ Park wasn’t the best of starts for The Magpies who showed very little going forward and looked bereft of ideas in Arsenal’s final third, but things got worse last weekend when they were hammered 3-1 away at newly promoted Norwich City, as Newcastle United fell foul to striker Teemu Pukki who bagged a hat-trick.

The Magpies hit the road again this Sunday as they make their way down to the nation’s capital where they’ll face an upbeat Tottenham outfit in their own backyard, but with just 2 away wins from their last 12 matches on their travels, the odds look firmly stacked against Newcastle United in this one.

In addition, Newcastle have kept just 2 clean sheets from these last 12 away matches and if they’re to get anything out of Tottenham on Sunday you’d have to think that they’d need to keep a clean sheet to do so.

  • Tottenham have lost just 1 of their last 10 home matches in the EPL
