Our football match prediction:
St. James’ Park will host Sunday’s football game between Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur. The Magpies return to the English top flight and coach Rafa Benitez is on a quest to bring glory days back to St. James’ Park. It is well known that Newcastle United are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but the game against Spurs will be anything but a walk in the park for the newcomers. English attacker Dwight Gayle, who impressed in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign, is widely expected to lead the attack for the hosts against Tottenham. Mauro Pochettino’s troops are seen as one of main favourites to win the Premier League trophy and all eyes will be on duo Dele Alli – Harry Kane when the two teams face each other in the opening match of the season. The capital club chiefs did well to keep hold of key players in the summer transfer window and that is the main reason why we predict the visitors will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s match.
Highlighted Player (Paul Dummet):
Paul Dummett is a product of Newcastle United’s youth school. His main position is left back, but he is capable of playing as a centre back as well. The defender was born on 26 September, 1991 and he played for the likes of Gateshead and St. Mirren on loan in the past. Dummett returned to Newcastle United in 2013 and he featured in 18 games for the Magpies in the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign. On the last day of the season. he made a hard tackle on Liverpool attacker Luis Suarez and, in turn received death threats from Uruguay fans on Twitter. The Newcastle United defender scored one goal in 23 appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but he did not help the St. James’ Park outfit avoid relegation to the Championship. Paul Dummett plays for Wales and he made his debut for the Dragons on June, 2014 against Netherlands. It has to be noted that Dummett won the Scottish League Cup with St. Mirren in the 2012/2013 season.
