Newcastle United vs Tottenham Hotspurs, Barclays Premier League, Match Preview
Kick Off: 16.00 (UK Time)
Venue: St. James’ Park, Newcastle upon Tyne
A very important match in the context of the points table, Spurs travel to Newcastle on Super Sunday. The Magpies have had a dream start to the season taking 15 points from the first seven games. They now sit at the 4th spot ahead of Liverpool & Spurs. Tottenham are in the 6th position with 12 points having played a match less than all teams above them in the table.
Both the teams will go in to match after convincing wins in their previous fixtures. Newcastle defeated Wolves 2-1, while playing away. Demba Ba & Jonas Gutierrez were the scorers against a resilient Wolves side. Demba Ba has been an absolutely smashing buy for Newcastle and it can be seen on the results they have had till now. To be honest Newcastle have had the most exciting summer in terms of buying players and with Ben Arfa back fit they should be a force to reckon with.
Last weeks London derby saw Spurs at home beating Arsenal 2-1. Kyle Walker scored a corker to put the match out of Arsenal’s reach. Gunners might had an abysmal match for most of the time but Tottenham had a very good game going on for themselves throughout the match. Van der Vaart scored the first goal for Spurs. Gareth Bale also had a decent match with a lot of quick run ins which made Arsenal very uncomfortable at the back.
So both the clubs on the back of good victories will have to be at their best to achieve a result in their favor next week. Home advantages for Newcastle cannot be ignored. But this fixture has all the signs of being a goal fest. Good attack & a very attacking midfield is what we will get from both the sides. Or at least we expect to.
