Newcastle vs Tottenham is up again today
Now let’s talk about the onus is on the visitors in this one
And as they come into Sunday’s clash sitting three points shy of Newcastle.
Also however, their away form is a huge problem
Surely and could end up costing them a place in the Champions League.
For sure Tottenham will be looking to take all three points today
Then now with these two sides heading into the weekend sitting fourth and fifth respectively, Champions League hopes are on the line at St James’ Park this weekend. This is a fitting fixture for such a pivotal moment for the Magpies, as Spurs were their first opponent last term post-takeover.
With changes likely for hosts
Newcastle head into this clash on the back of a 3-0 loss to Aston Villa, which opened the door to Unai Emery’s side in the fight for the top four. They will be wary of allowing that to happen two weekends in a row.
Expect Eddie Howe to ring the changes for this clash, with Callum Wilson a contender to return to the side.
However, the striker was brought on as the Magpies chased the game at Villa Park, while he’s been something of a lucky charm for Howe’s team this season.
Then the Magpies have won 56% of their league games when Wilson starts this season, winning just six of the other 14 outings.
