Tottenham Hotspur host Newcastle United in Super Sunday with both teams coming into this game off the back of impressive wins. Newcastle took down high flying Liverpool last weekend in a shock that many people did not see coming. Steve McLaren got some breating room as his magpies moved up closer to safety. The key man last week was Wijnaldum who has been Newcastle's best player all season. Cissokho, Perez and Cisse have also been good in a poor season for Newcastle but the real question will be can Newcastle put in back to back performances and take something from this game against a Tottenham team who are unbeaten since the start of the season.
Manuel Pochettino has done a remarkable job turning around Tottenham and this Spurs side looks capable of competing not just for the Champions League but possibly for a run at the title. Harry Kane is the focal point for Tottenham but with Erikson, Lamela and Son all looking more and more caable as the season progress' Tottenham finally have some attacking options. Dembele has also been terrific this season and defensively Tottenham have the second best record in the league. White Hart Lane has been a fortress for Tottenham as they are unbeaten with four wins and four draws in eight games at home.
Another game with little or no value in the current prices. While I like Tottenham to win the game , I cant take them at these short prices for a number of reasons. Tottenham just played on Thursday and while Monaco didnt put up much of a fight it was definitely an energy sapping affair because of the weather , rain and wind more of which is expected tomorrow. Hard for me to see Tottenham cover the handicap here and if Newcastle play as well as they did last week this could be a tight one. Min bet here but I am going to take the draw.
