Tottenham v Newcastle – Football & Racing News – Star Sports

Ange must turn around Spurs’ recent drought of points before a top European finish slips away from them.

Let’s not forget that Tottenham were flying high near the top of the table just 6 weeks ago. After 10 games, Ange broke the record for a point tally in a debut season, and his side spent the least amount of minutes out of any club losing a match at just 6%.

The wheels have fallen off since then. Their form in the last 5 games sees them in 19th place. This is a stat that gets increasingly hard to justify when you consider their only point came away at the Etihad. I thought that match would be a turning point for their campaign, but the trend continued in London against West Ham when they broke records and yet again lost a 1-0 lead for the 5th consecutive game.

Although Spurs fans are surely counting the days down until the return of their beloved James Maddison in January, the club needs results in this notoriously busy Christmas period and any more turnaround disasters might just turn the Spurs dial down into the latter half of the top 10.

Spurs have conceded 13 goals in the last 5 games and scored 7. Their goalscoring capability will be significantly hindered if speculation is true surrounding Son’s back injury.

Similar to his counterpart, Eddie Howe also comes into this key fixture with a plethora of injuries made even worse by Nick Pope’s shoulder issue sustained in their 1-0 victory over Manchester United. Doubts around Lascelles add further damage to the ever-growing list of non-runners, with Howe himself labeling his squad as “thin” just last week.

The Toon looked a shadow of their European high-flying selves when losing by 3 goals to nil at Goodison Park.

Despite technically having more of the ball, Newcastle had nearly 2 fewer expected goals (xG) that day and the backline of Trippier, Lascelles, and Schar clearly didn’t give Everton the respect they deserved. A repetition of anything close to that performance could easily see Spurs net a goal early on, as they have done so often lately.

Dyche’s men arguably should’ve scored more that day, and they’ll certainly be fancying their chances against Chelsea on Sunday.


With Newcastle somehow having even more injury woes than Tottenham, coupled with the idea that Eddie Howe will surely have one eye on their must-win fixture against AC Milan in just three days, is why I’m backing Tottenham to finally grab 3 points at 11/10 with
