Preview

Tottenham Hotspur are on their travels as the Premier League resumes this weekend. Jose Mourinho's men take on Newcastle United on Sunday at St. James' Park.

Spurs are breathing down the necks of those above them and are only three points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea. They have four wins from their last five league fixtures.

Mourinho knows they will have to carry that momentum forward since a top-four finish is absolutely necessary in his second season.

Meanwhile, not everything is fine at Newcastle, as Steve Bruce's side have been in terrible form of late. It's been almost a month since they bagged all three points in a game, and are presently on a run of six matches without a win.

The Toons have had a chance to regroup during the international break. They know any points earned against Spurs will be a bonus as they are only two points from 18th place with a game in hand.

Newcastle vs Tottenham Hotspur probable XI

Newcastle United predicted XI (4-3-3): Martin Dubravka; Javi Manquillo, Jamaal Lascelles, Ciaran Clark, Paul Dummett; Joe Willock, Jonjo Shelvey, Jeff Hendrick; Miguel Almiron, Joelinton, Ryan Fraser

Tottenham Hotspur predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Sergio Reguilon; Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Tanguy Ndombele; Gareth Bale, Lucas Moura, Son Heung-Min; Harry Kane


Newcastle vs Tottenham Hotspur match prediction

Tottenham have been unplayable whenever they start well. Most of their dominant wins this season have come when Kane and Son see a lot of the ball, counterattack and execute passes that free up space.

We expect Spurs to hit Newcastle similarly and leave them lurching. Bruce's misery is set to continue.

Prediction: Newcastle United 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur
