Recent Form

All seems well in Newcastle as the long awaited Saudi takeover is finally over the line and although we’re unlikely to see an immediate impact at the club with the transfer window not open for another two and a half months, there is a sense of anticipation growing amongst the fans and you can expect the atmosphere to be electric at St James’ Park on Sunday.

Newcastle currently sit second from bottom in the table having made a winless tart to the campaign, so despite all the excitement, the first prerogative is to survive the drop. 

They can’t even blame a tough fixture list for that start either, with Man United the only side they’ve faced currently operating in the top eight of the table, and that ended in a thumping 4-1 defeat.

With that said, Spurs haven’t looked their best selves this season either, and that’s largely down to the drop off in form of Harry Kane who’s still looking for his first league goal of the season. 

The England captain looked way off the pace on the international break, and unless he can start finding the back of the net there’s little hope for the London side this season.

Only five sides have scored fewer than Spurs’ six goals so far, and with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg the only player other than Son Heung-Min to find the net from open play this season, Newcastle’s gameplan looks relatively simple in that they need to keep the South Korean quiet.

Newcastle And Spurs To Draw

Spurs haven’t had the best time of it on the road of late, going W5-D5-L8 in the league going back to November last year, losing their last two against Crystal Palace and North London rivals Arsenal and conceding three in both those outings. 

While we wouldn’t expect that to happen for the third road trip in a row necessarily, it’s a sign that confidence is low in the Lilywhites camp and it’s difficult to back them against a club that is on cloud nine right now.

Both meetings last season ended all square and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see this one continue the trend. 

Indeed, Newcastle have drawn three of their last five games and while Spurs are still yet to finish a 90 level this season, four of their games have been separated by just one strike and Nuno Espirito Santo’s personal record against the Magpies has to be a factor. 

Indeed, the Portuguese manager has drawn each of his last five meetings with the North East club, with each finishing 1-1, and that seems the most likely outcome yet again for us here.
