Newcastle vs Tottenham Prediction & Analysis
Newcastle lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Wolves. They are also on an eight-game winless streak, and five of these were defeats.
They have a total of just three wins to their name at home in the whole of 2021, and they had remained winless in 26 of their total 38 matches the previous season in the PL.
On the other hand, Tottenham had recorded a 2-1 win at home against Aston Villa the past game week, and only thrice have they failed to score against a team since their defeat against Manchester City in April, in the EFL Cup.
Moreover, they have lost just thrice on the road since May of 2021, and had slotted in a total of five goals from their former three road trips.
On top of that, they also have a great h2h record against Newcastle over the years.
For the reasons, expect a win for the Spurs this weekend.
