Tottenham vs Newcastle: Preview, Betting tips and Prediction - A long afternoon in London for Bruce’s Toon Armies
|Son Heung-min and Harry Kane have combined for more Premier League goals than any other duo |
in the competition since the South Korean’s move to Spurs in August 2015 (24 goals).
Tottenham vs Newcastle
Sunday 27th September
Heung Min Son fired four past Southampton last weekend and all four were assisted by Harry Kane, something that suggests the prolific forward might be in for some number 10 role at Spurs.
In the win over Southampton, Spurs showed they can be ruthless and unforgiving.
All the chances they passed in the defeat to Everton weren’t missed this time.
On that premise, one can believe they have something to offer this season.
Having started on fire with a 2-0 win away at Westham, Newcastle followed up with an embarrassing loss at home to Brighton.
A result that instantly heaps pressure on the manager, Steve Bruce.
The Toons were poor in the day and allowed everything to walk past them.
Even when Brighton went one man down as Yves Bissouma was handed the marching orders, Newcastle still couldn’t offer anything impressive going forward.
One must ask, which Newcastle will turn up at the Spurs Stadium?
Spurs have just signed Gareth Bale on loan from Real Madrid, when he is fit, the league will feel his presence.
He will no doubt add color to the front line and with Harry Kane and Heung Min Son, nobody wants to face such attack unprepared.
These guys will have their day, and the best of teams will struggle against them.
On paper, Spurs should nick this without hassles.
But depending on what manner of strength Steve Bruce’s men show, and on the account of their 7-0 annihilation of Morecambe in the league cup, it might not be so straightforward for Jose Mourinho’s men who have had to travel around Europe for a date in the preliminary rounds of the Europa League.
Betting prediction: Spurs to win
