Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Newcastle United and Tottenham square off against each other at St. James’ Park in a highly-anticipated Premier League game. The Magpies aim to make amends for a heavy 3-0 loss to Aston Villa, but they face yet another difficult task against Cristian Stellini’s troops. Fit-again midfielder Miguel Almiron is widely expected to return to the starting XI, with experienced forward Callum Wilson pushing for a start as well. Both Emil Krafth and Allan Saint-Maximin remain in the treatment room.
The capital club, meanwhile, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to bottom-table Bournemouth. Tottenham, though, look sharp in front of goal, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Tottenham’s injury list is pretty long, including the likes of Emerson Royal, Sessegnon, Davies, Bentancur, Bissouma, and Lucas Moura remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Allan Saint-Maximin):
Allan Saint Maximin is a talented winger who was born in Chatenay-Malabry, France on March 12, 1997. Saint-Maximin played for the likes of Verrieres-le-Buisson, US Ris-Orangis, AC Boulogne-Billancourt and Saint-Etienne during his youth career and he continued playing for les Verts at Senior level.
After making 12 appearances in the league for Saint-Etienne senior team, Saint-Maximin moved to Monaco in 2015. However, the French winger made no more than one appearance for les Rouges et Blancs before joining Hannover and Bastia on loan. In the summer of 2017 he signed a contract with Nice for an undisclosed transfer fee.
Allan Saint-Maximim represented France at youth level, but he has yet to make his senior debut for les Tricolores. His main position is right winger, but he is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder as well. He wears No. 7 jersey at Nice and his contract with les Aiglons should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Tottenham):
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.
