Tottenham Hotspur vs Newcastle United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Tottenham received another setback in the top four race following a 1-0 loss against West Brom at the Hawthorns. This has been a bogey ground for Spurs in recent years and the game appeared to be heading for a draw in the closing stages when Jake Livermore scrambled the ball into the net for a huge win. Newcastle United lost for the third consecutive game as they were beaten 2-1 by Watford at Vicarage Road. A disastrous first half performance from Newcastle led to goals from Robert Pereyra and Andre Gray giving Watford a comfortable lead. Despite Ayoze Perez’ fine finish to pull one back in the second half, Newcastle were not able to get a comeback.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Spurs have struggled in recent home games against Newcastle, although those matches were at the White Hart Lane. The Wembley pitch will pose a different set of problems for Newcastle, whose recent form has been extremely poor. At the same time, Spurs will be quite nervous and keen to know about the status of Chelsea’s game against Huddersfield. Results elsewhere can make a huge impact on this game, but Spurs’ recent form makes me go with a draw.

Spurs have been unable to score more than 1.5 goals in any of the last five games apart from the win against Watford. Newcastle may be struggling for form, but they have been pretty tight at the back in the last few weeks. The team has conceded over 1.5 goals only once in the last seven league matches. I would go with Tottenham to score under 2.5 goals.

Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Tottenham have developed a reputation as chokers and the latest run of form from Mauricio Pochettino’s men is doing little to shake off that image. The victory over Watford stands amidst a sea of draws and defeats for Tottenham in the last few matches. The dip in form has come at the worst possible time for Spurs, as Chelsea have been on a resurgent run. The 10 point advantage over the blues looked more than sufficient to get Tottenham into the fourth place – and therefore Champions League qualification – only a few weeks ago. However, the lead has been reduced to just two points. The consolation for Spurs is that their fate rests in their own hands.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News

Jan Vertonghen (ankle) is a doubt for the game. Eric Dier (illness), Kyle Walker-Peters (hamstring), Mousa Dembele (ankle), Harry Winks (ankle), and Serge Aurier (hamstring) are missing from action for Mauricio Pochettino.

Newcastle United Preview

Since the win over Arsenal, Newcastle have gone through a slump in terms of results. The team did come in with some decent performances during this period, but the first half performance against Watford was probably the worst from Newcastle in recent times. Rafa Benitez will be quite pleased with the response shown by his team in the second half. Newcastle cannot afford to come in with similar performances in the remaining two matches against London outfit Tottenham and Chelsea, as a top-10 finish is still a highly possible outcome for the Magpies.

Newcastle United Team News

Christian Atsu (knee), Robert Elliott (back), and Ciaran Clarke (knee) are unavailable due to injuries, while Islam Slimani is suspended for the game.
