Tottenham Hotspur host Newcastle United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday
Looking for their second win for the season, Tottenham Hotspur host Newcastle United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday. Last week Mauricio Pochettino’s boys lost two points during the visit to the champion Manchester City, so now the goal is only one – three more points. Let’s take a look at this game in our English Premier League predictions.
How we said, last week the Champions League finalists visited the Etihad Stadium and secured a point with a 2-2 draw against Manchester City. Twice in the game the Cityzens got ahead in the scoreline, but Tottenham won a point with goals from Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura. At this moment Spurs are 6th in the league standings with 4 points from the first two rounds.
So far things are going well for Spurs. The summer signing Tanguy Ndombele is starting to fit in the team’s midfield, while the other new addition to the midfield Giovani Lo Celso also featured against City as a substitution. It’s going to be interesting how the season will go for these two very classy players.
For Newcastle United it’s going to be a tough season. Rafa Benitez left the club in the summer and he was replaced by Steve Bruce, but the campaign didn’t start very well for the Magpies. Newcastle suffered two defeats in the first two rounds, losing against Arsenal and Norwich City.
In the second round Newcastle visited Norwich City at the Carrow Road, but suffered a 1-3 loss. The Canaries’ striker Teemu Pukki scored three times in the visitors’ net, while Jonjo Shelvey scored Newcastle’s only goal in the fixture.
It’s going to be an incredibly diffcult fight for survival for Newcastle. And now they might concede a third consecutive loss, because playing against Tottenham Hotspur is always extra difficult. We expect a Spurs dominance in this game in our English Premier League predictions.
