Newcastle vs Tottenham: Predictions
A palpable sense of dread has enveloped St. James’ Park in recent weeks, with Newcastle struggling to put substantial points on the board and are now just a place above the drop zone, with Fulham very much in their slipstream and looking to mount a late escape from the Premier League’s nether reaches.
The pressure is reaching boiling point on Tyneside, with Steve Bruce currently caught in the riptide of a six-game winless streak, including a lacklustre 3-0 reversal at the hands of relegation rivals Brighton just before the international break, and few signs of promise in their displays.
Tottenham, likewise, are feeling the heat at the minute after exiting the Europa League in humiliating fashion to Dinamo Zagreb, which was augmented by a North London derby defeat sandwiched between both legs, but victory over Aston Villa last time out has just pacified the pitchforks for the meantime.
Jose Mourinho will know that failure to secure a top-four finish will add a seismic pressure to his position, so he will be fighting tooth and nail in the coming weeks to maintain parity with Chelsea in the final Champions League qualification place, and look to sneak in at the death.

Newcastle vs Tottenham: Match Stats
It is no wonder Harry Kane currently shares the podium with Mohamed Salah in the Golden Boot race this season (17 goals), as he has registered more shots than any other play; in fact, he is the only player to rack up triple digits worth of shots (102), so Martin Dubravka can expect a busy afternoon. Hugo Lloris might be in for a less frantic contest than his Slovakian counterpart, though, as the Magpies have notched just 28 goals this term, the fifth-worst in the division.

The reverse fixture in north London saw the Luddites assemble en masse as VAR awarded Newcastle a penalty in the dying embers after the ball struck the arm of Eric Dier, who was facing the opposite direction of the action. It was a ludicrous decision that ultimately cost Spurs three deserved points as they were completely dominant throughout the contest, with Callum Wilson’s resultant spot-kick their first shot on target.
