Tottenham Hotspur continue their quest for a Champions League spot when they visit St James’ Park to face Newcastle United in Premier League. 


Tottenham Hotspur continue their quest for a Champions League spot when they visit St James’ Park to face Newcastle United in Premier League

The race for Europe continues to heat up with seven matches left. While Spurs have all but secured a spot in Europe next season, it is unclear if they’ll make Champions League places or settle for the Europa League. They currently sit in fourth place on 60 points, equal points with Aston Villa in fifth place. A slip-up could derail their chances and could potentially end up in the Europa League.

For the hosts, despite being far from impressive this season compared to their form last season, Newcastle are beginning to grind out results in the Premier League in recent weeks.

The 4:1 loss to Arsenal in February seemed to be a reality check for Eddie Howe’s side who have gone on to secure 10 points from a possible 15. Wins were recorded against Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Ham United and Fulham with the loss to Chelsea and a draw to Everton being the only blemish in their last five games.

In their last Premier League outing, Newcastle extended their winning streak against Fulham to five matches when they travelled to West London last weekend. The Magpies survived a first-half onslaught from Fulham at Vicarage Road where they were underwhelming all through the first period of the game.

The Cottagers recorded ten shots in the first half and Newcastle did not have a sniff at goal until the 51st minute through Fabian Schar after connecting with Anthony Gordon’s cross to guide the ball into the back of the net. But the goal was chalked off after a lengthy VAR review that indicated a foul on Fulham’s centre-back, Calvin Bassey.

Marco Silva’s side sent wave after wave of attack but fluffed all their chances and were made to pay when Bruno Guimaraes struck home the winner late in the second half to mark his 100th appearance for the club.

Tottenham leapfrogged Villa to fourth place in the Premier League standings after the Villains dropped two points in their 3:3 draw with Brentford last Saturday.

Ange Postecoglou’s side faced Nottingham Forest in their last Premier League clash and took an early lead in the 15th minute through an own goal by Murillo. The former Corinthians defender was unfortunate to see his clearance end up at the back of his net just minutes after he came close to scoring a spectacular goal from inside his half.

Forest ensured the lead did not take long and deservedly got the equaliser in 12 minutes through Chris Wood.

Spurs returned from the break a better team than they were in the opening half and exerted more presence in the game. Their dominance paid off seven minutes after the restart as Micky van de Ven’s thunderous strike found the back of the net to restore the lead for the home side.

Pedro Porro put the game to bed with his first Premier League goal of the season to condemn Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to their first defeat in three games.

The North London side now face two stern tests of ending their abysmal away record against a Newcastle side that are unbeaten in their last five matches at home, as well as stopping a rampaging Alexander Isak who has scored in his last five consecutive matches at St. James’ Park.

Match stats and head-to-head

•Howe’s side recorded a comprehensive 6:1 win over Spurs the last time they met at St. James’ Park. Victory on Saturday will ensure Newcastle’s first consecutive home win over Tottenham in the Premier League since 2008.

•Spurs are on a seventeen-game scoring streak against Newcastle away from home. The last time the North London side failed to score in this fixture came in the 4:0 defeat in 2003.

•Newcastle are on a five-match unbeaten streak at St. James’ Park, recording two wins and three draws in that run.

•At least four goals have been scored in the last five matches between these two sides.

•Isak’s two goals against Tottenham is the third-most he has scored against any side in the Premier League. Another goal against Spurs will mean the Sweden International will become the first player to score 20+ goals for Newcastle across all competitions since Alan Shearer in the 2002-03 season.

•Tottenham’s 4:0 win at Villa Park was the only victory in their last six away matches in the Premier League.

Team news 

The Magpies have been plagued with a plethora of injury concerns this season and were lucky Martin Dubravka saw the entire duration of the victory over Fulham after the goalkeeper went down on two occasions over an injury concern.

Sven Botman is Newcastle’s longest absentee with a season-ending knee injury while Jamaal Lascelles and Miguel Almiron are also out of contention with knee injuries.

Callum Wilson is yet to recover from a chest problem while Tino Livramento and Nick Pope are both suffering ankle and shoulder injuries respectively.

Joelinton, who recently extended his contract is still far from making a matchday squad due to a thigh injury while Matt Targett, Kieran Trippier and Joe Willock will not be part of the squad to face Tottenham.

Richarlison missed the victory over Forest last weekend due to a minor knock but the Brazil International is hopeful to return in time to be in contention for the trip to Tyneside.

Manor Solomon and Ryan Sessegnon are Spurs’ longest absentees with knee and hamstring injuries respectively while Fraser Forster is still nursing a foot injury.

Predicted starting lineup

Tottenham Hotspur predicted starting lineup:

Vicario; Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie; Bentancur, Bissouma; Johnson, Maddison, Werner; Son.

Newcastle United predicted starting lineup:

Dubravka; Krafth, Schar, Burn, Hall; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Willock; Barnes, Isak, Gordon.


Tottenham are in a tight race to secure a Champions League spot, only sitting ahead of Villa on goal difference.

They will be all out when they face Newcastle, but it will be a difficult task against a team that are motivated now more than ever to secure a Europa League spot.

While Postecoglou’s side are expected to dominate the game, the trio of Gordon, Isak and Harvey Barnes are tipped to take advantage of Spurs’ leaky defence.

A goals-galore is expected in this match but the team with the better defence is expected to triumph.

We’re predicting a 3:2 victory for Newcastle.
