Newcastle United V Tottenham Hotspur, 11 Aug 18

Kicks off at 12.30 the first of Saturday’s Premier League action sees serious title contenders Tottenham head to the North East.

Tottenham just come out on top out of the previous 158 matches these two sides have played. Back in May, Tottenham managed a 1-nil win and there last visit to Newcastle saw them leaving as 2-nil victors. Newcastle did manage a thumping win at home to Tottenham back in May of 2016, winning 5 – 1. We are sure the Newcastle faithful will be hoping for a repeat of this come Saturday lunchtime.

They should have some belief, as several key players are missing for Tottenham, due to the World Cup. Fitness is key at the start of the football campaign, an unfit player could cause himself injury further down the line, acknowledged Pochettino.

We see little between these sides so are going for a score draw, they’re due one.
