Tottenham Hotspur vs Newcastle United
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 27 September 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Jose Mourinho is a man on a mission and he has plenty of haters to take care of. He has been given the perfect set of fighters in the Spurs squad, and with the addition of Gareth Bale, the Portuguese gaffer just might deliver their coveted PL trophy.
If he is in fact able to pull that off, it would be advantage Mou against Pep Guardiola – the two managers who have been locked in a battle to be the best in the world for over a decade.
Despite all his successes, Pep always have had a world-class team at his disposal along with plenty of money to splurge in the market. However, Jose has been different. After his exploits with Porto and Inter, an EPL title for the Lilywhites would be the crowning jewel.
Count on Mourinho to give his absolute best this season.
Considering they are fresh off a huge win against Southampton, and that they are taking on the inconsistent Magpies, expect Tottenham to dominate proceedings from the get-go this weekend.
Tottenham vs Newcastle: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns, Spurs won 1-3 on the road. The game had taken place just a month back.
- They had also won five of the former six clashes.
- At home, Mourinho’s men have recorded seven of the past eleven wins.
- Steve Bruce’s men failed to score goals in three of their preceding five road trips.
Tottenham vs Newcastle Prediction
The Lilywhites recorded a massive 2-5 win on the road the last match-day, against Southampton. Meanwhile, the Magpies lost 0-3 at home against Brighton.
Note that Brighton was a team that finished bottom tier last season, whereas the Saints were one of the best towards the end of the campaign.
Going on, the Spurs already are one of the best teams in the PL, and now they have added an absolute baller in Bale. They also were unbeaten in 13 of their preceding 16 overall match-ups, and had won seven of their former eight appearances at home.
On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in nine of their past fourteen overall fixtures, and most importantly, they had lost five of their preceding six h2h clashes. To make it further clear, they had lost the latest h2h meeting just a month back at home, with a 1-3 scoreline.
And now they are on the road as well. By all means, expect the in-form Tottenham to record the win this Sunday.
