Going to keep this one short and sweet. I like Tottenham here in this spot. Yes it is away from home but Tottenham under Tim Sherwood have shown a great ability to get wins away from White Hart Lane. In fact under Sherwood Spurs have won at Southampton, Manchester United and Swansea. No mean feat and with Emmanuel Adebayor suddenly finding the terrific form he showed years ago at Arsenal there is reason to be optimistic in Tottenham. The midfield with Dembele, Erickson, lennon and the front two of Soldado and Adebayor will be tough to control. Adebayor has really found his feet again netting six goals in their last ten games and netting a priceless winner at the weekend against rivals Everton.
Newcastle United are really struggling at the moment through injury and suspension. Tomorrow the magpies will be missing Debuchy, Tiote, Colocinni, Obertan and Goufran through injury and Remy through suspension. Having sold Yohan Cabaye in the January transfer window Newcastle really look short of quality. There is no doubt Alan Pardew will try to rouse his troops as the team has lost their last two games and a win here at home in St James Park may lift Newcastle out of their current slump./
As I stated in the start of the article I like Tottenham here. I think the odds are kind too given Tottenham's good away record and Newcastle's missing players. I will be on Tottenham to get the win, I think Roberto Soldado is due some luck as well wouldnt surprise me if he found the net here. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
