class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The 2019 Champions League runners-up have gained some momentum after three successive wins, but we do not think they can keep a clean sheet on Sunday
Tottenham will look for their fourth consecutive win in all competitions on Sunday afternoon when they host Newcastle in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho’s men were in action on Thursday evening, winning 3-1 in the Europa League in North Macedonia, a milestone victory for the manager as it brought up his 100th success in Europe.
Newcastle started their Premier League campaign with a win in the capital at West Ham but were comfortably beaten at home by Brighton last week and the Magpies have won only one of their last six games against Spurs.
Tottenham vs Newcastle Latest Odds
Newcastle’s solitary win against Spurs in the last three years came in this fixture last season, and Steve Bruce’s men are offered at 6/1 (7.00) with bet365 to claim another success in north London.
Mourinho’s side meanwhile are priced at 9/20 (1.45) with the draw at 7/2 (4.50).
Tottenham vs Newcastle Team News
New signing Gareth Bale is side-lined for Spurs and will not be able to make his second debut, although fellow newcomer Sergio Reguilon could be in line to feature at some point despite having an ankle problem. Defender Japhet Tanganga is still out injured.
The visitors have a number of injury issues with Fabian Schar, Martin Dubravka, Matthew Longstaff, Dwight Gayle, Allan Saint-Maximin and Paul Dummett all ruled out, but Jamal Lewis is fit enough for the bench.
Tottenham XI: Lloris; Doherty, Dier, Sanchez, Davies; Hojbjerg, Winks, Lo Celso; Lucas, Son, Kane
Newcastle XI: Darlow; Manquillo, Lascelles, Fernandez, Ritchie; Hendrick, Shelvey, Hayden; Almiron, Joelinton, Wilson
Tottenham vs Newcastle Preview
Spurs’ only home game so far was their opening match of the campaign which saw them put in an incredibly disappointing performance, going down 1-0 against Everton.
Since then there has been a gradual improvement and last week’s 5-2 victory at Southampton was certainly encouraging.
Less pleasing for the manager will be the side’s inability to keep a clean sheet this term and Newcastle will look to take advantage of Spurs’ current defensive uncertainty.
The Magpies are not the most prolific side in the division yet they have scored in 15 of their last 23 away games and backing them to net once more could prove profitable.
Tottenham vs Newcastle Tips And Predictions
Both teams to score is priced at 9/10 (1.90) and this looks like an attractive bet, one which has paid out in six of Tottenham’s last eight competitive fixtures.
