Spurs’ schedule is hectic and since their start to the campaign against Everton, they have gone on to gain victories in the Europa League over Lokomotiv Plovdiv and KF Shkendija as well as a second-half demolition of Southampton in the Premier League.
Tottenham Hotspur Aim to Continue Winning Streak
Spurs’ Tough Schedule
Europa League qualifying has made Tottenham’s schedule very busy. Nevertheless, the second-half performance last Sunday at St Mary’s Stadium was clinical.
Son Heung-Min grabbed four goals, all assisted by Harry Kane who also bagged the fifth in a five-two victory.
Tanguy Ndombele garnered praise from Jose Mourinho and was a standout performer in Spurs’ win in Northern Macedonia on Thursday.
As the games keep coming, Mourinho needs all of his squad to be ready to perform.
Which Newcastle United Will Turn up in North London?
Steve Bruce has been backed in the transfer market by Mike Ashley and it takes time for new players to gel into a team.
In the first game, Newcastle were energetic and strong as they brushed past West Ham United.
They followed that up with a timid display at home to Brighton & Hove Albion. If the Newcastle that turned up at West Ham turn up at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, they have every chance of picking up points.
If it’s the side that Brighton walked past, Tottenham Hotspur will get that fourth straight win.
Despite that busy schedule, Spurs have the firepower that any side would be proud to field. Harry Kane and Son look hot right now with a strong understanding between the pair.
Callum Wilson has looked lively for Newcastle United and if he can get on the shoulder of the last man can cause the Spurs backline real problems.
Tottenham to continue their winning run and edge this one.
Score prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 2 Newcastle United 1.
