The match between Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United on Sunday, December 10, will be thrilling for football fans to watch in the EPL.
The game is scheduled to begin at 10 p.m. Indian Standard Time. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will serve as the venue for the match, guaranteeing that the home crowd will go bonkers for their team and that Newcastle United will feel the heat from them.
So far this season, both teams have had more than a respectable campaign. Newcastle is not far behind Tottenham, who are ranked fifth in the table. The point difference between both teams is just one. And they will go face-to-face for the next three points.
Tottenham have scored 29 goals in 15 games so far in the league
The betting tip is...
Tottenham to score at 1.5+ goals
Ange Postecoglou, a former coach at Celtic, took over as manager, and his appointment has shown merit. What we know about him is his mastery of tactics. Tottenham has found a manager who has altered the dynamic for them after trying out a few different ones over the previous few seasons.
Their captain and arguably the best player, Hueng Min Son, leads the team in scoring with nine goals and two assists so far this season.
James Madison, a recent signing, comes in second with three goals and five assists. Vicario, their keeper, has made 43 saves while giving up 20 goals, which is a good ratio in his favor.
We expect no change in the lineup that lost to West Ham United.
Predicted Lineup: Vicario, Pedro Porro, Emerson Royale, Ben Davies, Destiny Udogie, Brenan Jhonson, Bissouma, Giovanni Lo Celso, Bryan Gil, Dejan Kulusevski, Hueng Min Son
Following the takeover by Saudi Arabia and the appointment of Eddie Howe as manager, Newcastle United has been performing at the highest level in recent years.
The team now has a strong attitude thanks to the recent additions of Harvey Barnes, Aleksander Isak, and Bruno Guimaraes. However, injuries are causing them distress.
They currently have ten injuries, with some of their key players—like Sven Botman—being among them. Alexander Isak, with nine goals, and Anthony Gordon, with six goals and three assists, are their top scorers.
We expect no changes in the playing XI to the team that lost to Everton.
Predicted Lineup: Nick Pope, Fabian Schar, Jamal Lascelles, Lewis Hall, Keiran Trippier, Bruno Guimaraes, Joelinton, Lewis Miley, Anthony Gordon, Miguel Almiron, Aleksander Isak
Despite grappling with setbacks from injuries to key players like Sven Botman and Matt Targett, Newcastle seems to be mounting a commendable defense from a disadvantaged position.
The recent absence of these top performers hasn't hindered their success, with the team securing victories in their last two outings. Over their past five games, the Magpies boast a record of three wins, one loss, and one draw.
Contrastingly, Tottenham's recent performance leaves much to be desired. With three losses, one draw, and a lone victory in their last five matches, Spurs find themselves in a somewhat precarious situation. Over the last five meetings, they've each notched two wins, shared one draw, but what truly stands out is the consistent abundance of goals in their clashes.
While Tottenham grapples with recent struggles, the unpredictable nature of their past encounters, marked by a goal-laden spectacle, adds an element of excitement to this upcoming clash.
Will Newcastle continue their winning streak despite missing key players, or can Tottenham turn their fortunes around and disrupt the Magpies' recent success?
