Newcastle vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview and Prediction 2021

Tottenham have won four of their last five Premier League games.

Newcastle have won only two of their last 18 Premier League fixtures.

Six of Spurs’ last seven league wins came against teams in the league’s bottom half.

Newcastle have conceded exactly two goals in four of their last six home assignments.

Newcastle in a perilous position

The heat is on for Newcastle and Steve Bruce, and with the club’s Premier League status under serious threat, the Magpies need to find form – and fast.

However, with a toxic atmosphere choking their progress and a dreadful run of just two wins from their last 18 league assignments, Newcastle look like worthy relegation candidates.

United’s 3-0 reverse at Brighton just before the international break was a fresh nadir for Bruce, and having been battered by Albion, it’s tough to see a route to success for Newcastle against Tottenham on Sunday.

Tottenham ticking along

A surge of four wins from five league games before the international hiatus fired Tottenham to within reach of the top four, and Spurs could replace Chelsea in the Champions League qualification spots if results go their way this weekend.

While their embarrassing Europa League exit to Dinamo Zagreb remains a massive blot on their copybook, Tottenham could still salvage their campaign by securing a place among next year’s continental elite, and a victory on Sunday would keep them well on track.

Tottenham to triumph

Newcastle’s defeat to Brighton last month felt like a defining moment in their season. The Magpies looked completely devoid of confidence and energy against the Seagulls, and a similar performance on Sunday would result in another convincing loss.

Six of Tottenham’s last seven Premier League victories came against clubs from the division’s bottom ten, and their ability to do a professional job against lower-ranked opponents makes them worth backing to do the business at St. James’ Park.

Even without the injured Son Heung-min, Tottenham should have too much class for the Magpies in attack, and having scored twice in their last game on the road against Aston Villa, our 2-0 correct score prediction tips Jose Mourinho’s efficient outfit to rattle their beleaguered hosts with a one-two combo.
