Struggling Tottenham keen to bounce back at home



Following on from their 2-2 draw against Manchester City last weekend, Tottenham are set to take on Steve Bruce’s struggling Newcastle side at home today.

Spurs will be strengthened by the addition of Heung-min Son as he returns after missing the first two games of the season due to suspension. Dele Alli has also returned to training, although Tanguy Ndombele looks set to miss the game after experiencing a thigh strain during training.

Despite suffering a knock to the hip during their 3-1 defeat to Norwich last Saturday, Joelinton will be fit to start for Newcastle. Winger Allan Saint-Maximin could also potentially start on Sunday, after missing the game at Carrow Road due to a hamstring problem, whilst Ghanaian Christian has also resumed training after suffering a knee issue.

With Tottenham winning their previous four Premier League matches against Newcastle, they are the firm favourites to come out on top, with bookmakers placing odds of 1/5 on a Spurs win.

All eyes are also on Harry Kane, with Bet365 offering odds of 12/5 on the England captain being first to score, following Teemu Pukki’s hat-trick against Newcastle last weekend.

Whilst Tottenham have never won five consecutive Premier League matches against the Magpies, it would take a superb performance for Newcastle to clinch the three points. Nevertheless, despite a less than ideal start to his tenure, Steve Bruce appeared more optimistic for the club’s upcoming fixtures, saying “make no mistake, we’ve only been here for four and a half weeks and we’ll go again next week and improve and can be better”.

However, Bruce remains aware of the challenges that Spurs will present, describing them as “a very, very good side”, before going on to say “We’re under no illusions as to how difficult it will be, but hopefully it’s just the right type of game for us. We know we’ll have to play well to get anything at all – far better than we did last week.”

Pochettino’s side will undoubtedly have taken confidence from their result against City last weekend, as they look set to build upon their strong start. Pochettino described Spurs’ start to the season as “very good”, saying “I am positive and optimistic always and of course happy in the way we started.”
