Tottenham is hosting Newcastle at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in round 31 of the English Premier League. Tottenham was finally able to connect a couple of wins together, but they need to keep it going now. Newcastle was on a great run, they have saved themselves from relegation, but they have lost their last 2 games in a row.
Thanks to a few of their good results lately, Tottenham has joined the Champions League race, and they are now in 5th place with 51 points. Since Conte took over, Tottenham has improved in every aspect, they are scoring goals, and they are defending better, but this is still not their maximum. Of the 47 goals Tottenham has scored, Son is their leading goalscorer with 13 goals, while Kane has scored 12 goals and has added 6 assists. There aren’t any notable injuries for Tottenham right now. The schedule is pretty good for Tottenham until the end of the season, they are playing only in the EPL which means they should be focused, and they are certainly good enough to qualify for the Champions League.
Newcastle has had an amazing run over the last month and a half, and with that, they have escaped the relegation zone and gotten pretty far away from it. With 31 points, Newcastle is now in 15th place, which is 9 points away from Watford in the first relegation spot. Offensively, Newcastle is still working out some kinks, but they have improved a lot, and they have scored 32 goals overall so far this season. defensively, Newcastle still has a lot of work to do, and even though their defense has improved a lot, they have conceded 49 goals in 29 games. There are quite a few injuries in Newcastle at the moment, but there are even more questionable players, some of which might be available for this game. Wilson is the leading goalscorer for Newcastle with 6 goals. Newcastle is making moves on the market, they are improving, but there is still a lot of work to be done in this club, and with all the money at their disposal, I think the work will be done.
Tottenham is the better team here, they are in better form, and they are playing at home. Newcastle isn’t bad, but with all the injuries in their team, they will have a tough time defending against a strong Tottenham offense.
