Unbeaten Tottenham host winless Newcastle at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon for this third round Premier League game.

Our Betting Tips

Spurs were lucky to see Gabriel Jesus’s late goal chalked off by VAR last weekend against Manchester City and they were able to leave the Etihad with a 2-2 draw.  Tottenham have scored five times in their opening two matches and are a good bet to win this game by two or more goals.

SPURS TO WIN THE GAME BY TWO GOALS

Newcastle have lost both their games so far this season are were guilty of some shambolic defending in their 3-1 defeat by Norwich on Saturday. With four goals conceded and just one scored manager Steve Bruce will have work to do on the training field before the trip to Spurs.

OVER 3.5 GOALS TO BE SCORED

Harry Kane has already found the back of the net twice this season, both goals coming in a 3-1 defeat of Aston Villa on the opening day. The England striker has only scored twice in eight Premier League matches against Newcastle.

HARRY KANE TO SCORE FIRST

Spurs have won each of their last four matches against the Magpies since a 5-1 hammering in St James’ Park in 2016. The Lilywhites scored six times in those four matches while conceding on just on occasion.

Statistics

Head to Head

The Lilywhites take the historical head to head by winning 62 of the last 137 fixtures between the sides, while the Magpies have managed 48 victories in that time while there have been 27 draws.

Stats

  • Newcastle have won just twice in their last 12 matches on their travels in the Premier League, wins over Leicester City and Fulham towards the end of last season halted a run of eight games without an away win.   
  • Spurs have lost four of their last 10 home games in all competitions against Newcastle and last tasted defeat at home to the Magpies in a 2-1 loss in 2015.
  • Newcastle have won just one of their last five Premier League games and won just three of their 19 away matches last season.

Our Prediction for Tottenham vs Newcastle

The match to end with a Spurs win

Spurs will know that they will need to play better in this fixture than they did in the match with Man City on the weekend, however, despite being outplayed for large portions of that game they did manage to escape with a point and that will give them a confidence boost going into this one.

Newcastle have looked poor so far this season and that heavy defeat to newly promoted Norwich will have set the alarm bells ringing for new manager Steve Bruce, they will need to start picking up points soon before the pressure builds on the former Sunderland Coach.
