Newcastle United v Tottenham Hotspur Preview

It’s the battle for the Champions League spot as fourth placed Newcastle United take on fifth placed Tottenham Hotspur at St. James’ Park on Sunday. Both teams enter this game on back of losses to Aston Villa and Bournemouth and will be looking to get back to winning ways with just seven matchdays remaining in the Premier League. Eddie Howe’s men were on a five-game winning streak, defeating the likes of Wolves, Nottingham Forest, Manchester United, West Ham and Brentford before eventually falling prey to Ollie Watkins’ superb display at Villa park, leading Unai Emery’s men to a 3-0 victory. The Magpies, who have been resolute in defense this season have now kept just one clean sheet in their previous 12 matches in all competitions. However, Newcastle are a different beast at the St. James’ Park, having conceded only 9 goals in 14 matches.

A 95th minute winner by Ouattara saw Spurs lose 2-3 at the hands of Bournemouth last weekend after Danjuma scored an equalizer for the Lilywhites after coming on from the bench. The atmosphere around the Tottenham Hotspur looks very negative as it stands, with there being no improvement in the style of play and the performances since Conte’s departure. The week of disaster saw Fabio Paratici resign from his role of Sporting Director and also Davinson Sanchez booed by the Spurs’ faithful following this woeful performance. Having won only two of their last 8 matches in all competitions, Cristian Stellini has a huge task ahead of him, having played a game more than the Magpies and with the likes of Villa, Liverpool and Brighton breathing down their neck for the fifth spot. Winless in their last 6 away matches and having lost 2-1 to Eddie Howe’s men in the reverse fixture this season, odds and predictions do not favour the Lilywhites in this matchup. Danjuma might come back into the lineup as Stellini would consider changing back to a back four following their defensive issues lately.
