It has not been often in recent times that Newcastle United have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that The Magpies have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 13 goals during that time.

- are unbeaten in their last 6 home league matches.

Team News: Newcastle United
Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game owing to a completely injury-free group to pick from.
It seems likely that The Magpies will probably use the 4-2-3-1 system in the match, handing starts to Martin Dubravka, Javier Manquillo Gaitan, Federico Fernandez, Fabian Schär, Emil Krafth, DeAndre Yedlin, Jonjo Shelvey, Matt Ritchie, Miguel Almirón, Dwight Gayle and Joelinton.
Team News: Tottenham Hotspur
In an otherwise full-strength squad, there is just the sole fitness issue for the Tottenham Hotspur gaffer José Mourinho to contend with. Juan Foyth (Meniscal Injury) misses out for this game.
From our viewpoint, Spurs seem likely to utilise a 4-3-3 formation by sending out Hugo Lloris, Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Ben Davies, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Lucas Moura, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.
We’re of the view that Newcastle United will likely be able to breach the defence of this Tottenham Hotspur outfit, although just one goal isn’t likely to prevent defeat.
We’re therefore expecting a narrow 1-2 winning margin for Tottenham Hotspur when the referee blows the final whistle. Should be an interesting one.
