Sam Allardyce believes the Tottenham Hotspur game will be a tough one for Newcastle on Monday evening, even though our home form has been quite good.
The North London team have taken just 7 points from the first 27 available and are lowly placed at 17th in the league, just one place above the drop zone.
Also Dutchman Martin Jol has to be facing the axe if he doesnâ€™t pull Spurs up the table soon.
Sam Allardyce – Tottenham will be a tough game for us
But we donâ€™t want Jol to start a Spurs revival next Monday at St. Jamesâ€™ Park. The Newcastle boss feels that Newcastle will need to be at their best to maintain Newcastleâ€™s best home start to a campaign for more than 10 years.
Sam told nufc.co.uk.
“Spurs are on the march again and they have got some terrific players that we will have to make sure we are ready for,”
“But we have to try to keep this fabulous home form going because we’re on a great run at St.James’ Park.â€
“We’ve taken 10 points from four games and kept two clean sheets along the way. We’ve scored three in our last two at home and we’re creating plenty of chances.â€
“Now we have to try to transfer that to our away form. It’s early days and we’re still building together as a squad but things are improving as we go along.”
We always seem to do well against Tottenham especially at home. It so happens the Newcastle have scored more times in the Premiership against Spurs than against any other team. Weâ€™ve scored 46 goals against them. Well, we hope that number will increase on Monday night because we need the win to keep us up there with the leaders.
