Tottenham vs Newcastle - Premier League - 14:00

Spurs have the rub over Steve Bruce's men

  • The North London side have won five of their last six matches against Newcastle.
  • The Magpies have scored just one goal in their last three away matches against Spurs.

 

TIP: Spurs to win and under 3.5 goals in match

Despite their gruelling European escapades over the last couple of weeks, I’m backing Spurs to beat Newcastle and under 3.5 goals to be scored in the game.

Jose Mourinho’s men were absolutely outstanding in their second-half against Southampton last time out, and you can expect them to be full of confidence as they welcome Newcastle.

Steve Bruce’s men, after beating West Ham in their opener, were played off the park against Brighton last weekend, and they have to be significantly better than that if they wish to challenge Spurs at all on Saturday.

Looking at the dominance Spurs have enjoyed over Newcastle in recent years, it’s hard to make much of a case for the visitors. Furthermore, under 3.5 goals have been scored in five of the last six meetings between these two, which is why 6/5 for this tip looks awfully tempting.
