Tottenham vs Newcastle Prediction and Odds
Tottenham vs Newcastle Prediction and Odds: Preview
Newcastle has visibly struggled to churn out something big under the guidance of Steve Bruce. They are currently second from bottom and are fearing a drop to the second tier.
This will be their first match since PCP’s Capital Partners’ takeover of the club. The consortium is backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund and is poised to turn the club into one of the greatest clubs in English history.
The wealthy investors reportedly paid a whopping £300 million for a controlling stake at the club and ending Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign.
Manager Steve Bruce knows he might get the sack before the Spurs match and even admitted he will be fine with any action.
“I’m happy for the club that this has gone through. It’s a great night for the fans, I’m delighted for them. I want to continue [as manager] but I have to be realistic. I’m not stupid and aware what could happen with new owners.”
As of now, the management is not seeking a new manager and coach Graeme Jones could be handed the charge on a temporary basis.
Back to back defeats dealt a severe blow to Spurs’ ambitions but they are now back on track with their win over Aston Villa in the last match.
Despite the win, Nuno Espirito Santo is still the favourite to get the sack if reports are to be believed. The North Londoners have seen a mixed fortune as their opening three wins got marred by successive three defeats.
Harry Kane has fired blank so far and Nuno’s priority would be to provide the England captain with ample opportunity but their creative forces have let them down so far.
Nuno’s pragmatic approach too attracted severe criticism from the supporters and it remains to be seen whether he manages to turn the tide or not.
Tottenham vs Newcastle Prediction and Odds: Recent Form
Spurs lacklustre show against their London rivals could be a major concern for the manager. The North London giants have leaked nine goals in three matches and never looked comfortable in those three matches.
They had to rely on a Matt Targett own goal against Villa which provided them a much-needed victory just before the international break.
Nothing seems to be going in the Magpies’ favour as their tactics are not working. Their defeat against Wolves in the last match could be the last match in the Bruce regime as the new owners are determined to keep the club up and running in the top tier.
Tottenham vs Newcastle Prediction and Odds: Predicted Lineup
Karl Darlow will keep his place in the Newcastle goal.
Ciaran Clark and Federico Fernandez will be at the helm of the Magpies defence.
Matt Ritchie and Javier Manquillo will start on the left and right sides of the defence respectively.
Sean Longstaff, Joe Willock and Isaac Hayden will be in the three man midfield.
Joelinton, Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin will be the front three.
Hugo Lloris will be in the goal.
Eric Dier and Christian Romero will be at the heart of the defence.
Emerson Royal and Sergio Reguilon will be the two side backs.
Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will be the deepest midfielders.
Tanguy Ndombele will start in a more advanced role. Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura will marshal the two flanks.
Harry Kane will star upfront.
Tottenham vs Newcastle Prediction and Odds: Why Tottenham Hotspur Can Win
- If Harry Kane starts firing Newcastle will have a task cut out.
- The North London side has been in good form lately and the Magpies could find it difficult to inspire themselves.
Tottenham vs Newcastle Prediction and Odds: Predicted Winner
After waiting for 18 months, Newcastle United now finally has a new owner. Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign at Newcastle United came to an end after Saudi’s sovereign wealth fund PIF, Amanda Staveley’s PCP and the Reuben brothers completed the much-delayed $410 million takeover of the club.
This Sunday Newcastle United will play their first match under new ownership. St. James’ Park may be more hostile with supporters behind their team more than usual. However, the recent form of Newcastle hasn’t been much convincing. In Sunday’s match, it will be Tottenham Hotspurs who will be starting as favorites.
The latest Tottenham vs Newcastle Prediction and Odds also favors the visitors Tottenham Hotspurs over the host Newcastle United.
