Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce thinks that Tottenham Hotspur have turned the corner and will now progress up the league.
Sam fears his team will be facing a resurgent Tottenham Hotspur side in their Premier League clash tomorrow night.
Weâ€™ll take a look at what Sam had to say yesterday.
Sam Allardyce – fears that Spurs have turned the corner and are on the up
The North London side began the season in the worst manner imaginable, when they lost 4 of their first 6 league games, but Spurs have since experienced promising draws against Aston Villa â€“ coming from a 4-1 deficit- and then at Liverpool.
Allardyce believes it is not the best moment to face a team that appears to be getting better.
â€œWe need to have as many players available and 100 per cent fit as possible to compete because I think Tottenham are turning the corner.â€
“Martin Jol went from 4-1 down and staring at the sack to 4-4, and then went within a whisker of beating Liverpool, so they are on the march, they are on the up, and you have got really top quality players in that team.â€
“If they are getting the confidence back it will take a really big effort here on Monday night to make sure we get three points from them,”
Certainly Spurs need to improve from their poor start this season, given all the excellent players they have in the squad. It’s not going to be an easy game tomorrow night but a win is what Newcastle need to keep in touch with the leaders. We are due a good performance as well, especially from the defense, which at times have looked solid this season, but need to have a few shutouts. A win and a shutout is what we need. We should be able to achieve that.
