Our match prediction:
Against all odds, Newcastle United dropped two points in Saturday’s game against rock-bottom Aston Villa and, as a result, the Magpies have slim chance of avoiding relegation. Rafa Benitez’s troops face a do-or-die situation in Sunday’s clash against Tottenham Hotspur, but beating the second-placed team is easier said than done. Mauro Pochettino’s men have been impressive in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign and they certainly want to finish the season above their fierce local rivals Arsenal in the standings. Pochettino is likely to field the best possible side against Newcastle United and we predict that the capital club are going to put icing on the cake on a very successful season. The Magpies did well to upset the Spurs at White Hart Lane earlier this season, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. In their last meeting at St. James’ Park Tottenham Hotspur recorded a 3-1 win over Newcastle United.
Highlighted Team (Tottenham Hotspur):
Tottenham Hotspur are a professional football club based in North London. Spurs host their rivals at White Hart Lane and the capacity of the stadium is 36,284. Tottenham won the Premier League (First Division) trophy in 1950/1951 and 1960/1961 and despite producing terrific displays in the 2015/2016 campaign Mauro Pochettino’s team eventually finished the season in third place in the standings. Tottenham’s bitter rivals are Arsenal, but Chelsea and West Ham United are regarded as the team’s fierce opponents as well. Spurs have won eight FA Cup trophies, with the team also lifting the 1962/1963 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title. Tottenham Hotspur hammered Atletico Madrid in the final of the competition back then (5-1). The likes of David Ginola, Sol Campbell, Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann, Gary Lineker, Luka Modric, Robbie Keane and Gareth Bale are star players that used to play for the White Hart Lane outfit in the past. The colour of Tottenham Hotspur’s home kit is white.
