Tottenham are set to host Newcastle United at home at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in North London.
Tottenham produced a big result in their previous outing as they managed a 2-2 draw against Manchester City away from home. The Spurs showed great quality to equalize twice and silence the crowd at the Etihad Stadium. Hugo Lloris was outstanding as the Frenchman made 8 saves during the game. Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura were the goal scorers for Tottenham. It has been a good start to the season for Tottenham as they have 4 points having beaten Aston Villa 3-1 in the opening week of the season. Returning to North London following their previous match, Tottenham should be very confident about their ability to win this fixture.
On the other side of the coin, Newcastle United have had a horrible start to the season as they have lost both of their games. Newcastle were defeated away from home by Norwich City last weekend. It was a 3-1 with the team struggling to compete. During the match, Newcastle United only managed to control 36% of the possession and it shows the lack of quality in the midfield. The forwards have also been poor for Newcastle United as they have only scored 1 goal this season. This is expected to be a very tough match for Newcastle United as they are playing away from home against elite opposition.
Newcastle United and Tottenham played each other twice last season with Tottenham winning on both occasions. Tottenham’s home game ended in a 1-0 victory for the Spurs with Heung Min Son scoring the goal.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Tottenham to win this match. Newcastle look low on confidence and I see them struggling to create chances against Tottenham. The Spurs look in elite form and the team is scoring goals for fun. Tottenham are the better team and I see them getting all 3 points from this home fixture.
