Newcastle United Vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview: Team News, Predicted Lineups, Key Men And Odds

Newcastle United will be playing their first match in the Premier League after a season long gap from the top flight, as the Magpies were relegated in the season prior to the last one to the Championship. However, they came out as winners in their last season in the second tier and made their way back into the Premier League and they will be taking on a resurgent Tottenham Hotspur squad in their comeback match on Sunday.

Tottenham, who will start their campaign as one of the favourites to lift the trophy this season, will be looking to notch up their first win of the season playing away from home against a not so strong Newcastle United side. The Spurs finished the last term in the Premier League in the second position due to some late goof-ups in the tournament and will be looking to make amends for them and win the league this season.

Team News-

Newcastle United-

The Magpies don’t have any major issues ahead of their comeback clash in the Premier League and will be looking to repeat their performance from their last match in the Premier League, which saw these two teams play against each other and Newcastle thrashing their opponents by 5-1. New recruits like Florian Lejeune, Javier Manquillo, Mikel Merino, Christian Atsu and Jacob Murphy all have minor knocks but are fit enough to play in their team’s first match in the Premier League this season.

Tottenham Hotspur-

The same cannot be said about the Spurs, as they are dealing with a number of injury concerns that include their first choice left back Danny Rose(Knee), midfielder Erik Lamela(hips), Georges Kevin-Nkoudou(foot) and first choice right back Kieran Trippier(ankle), who are all set to miss their first match of the season in the Premier League. Korean star Heung Min-Son might not start the proceedings for Tottenham despite being fit.

Predicted Lineups-

Newcastle United-

Rob Elliott, Javier Manquillo, Florian Lejeune, Ciaran Clark, Paul Dummett, Matt Ritchie, Issac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey, Christian Atsu, Ayoze Perez, Aleksandar Mitrovic

Tottenham Hotspur-

Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies, Mousa Dembele, Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Harry Kane

Key Men-

Newcastle United-

While Aleksandar Mitrovic will be expected to show a fine display of his skills by the Newcastle United fans, new guys Javier Manquillo and Florian Lejeune will also be under the scanner in their first Premier League match this season.

Tottenham Hotspur-

The Spurs will be banking upon their English marksman Harry Kane, who was awarded the Golden Boot in the last two seasons, to lead them to victory in their first match of the new season. Dele Alli is also supposed to play an important role in the attack.

Odds-

Newcastle- 4/1

Draw- 3/1

Tottenham- 8/11
