Tottenham played last night in the Europa League and beat FC Sheriff , and they have already qualified for the last 32 of the competition, with a perfect record of four wins out of four so far, and they still have two games to play in their Group K.
Moussa Sissoko – players are happy
Maybe the fact that Tottenham played on Thursday night could give Newcastle an edge in the early kickoff game on Sunday afternoon at White Hart Lane?
And even though Tottenham are doing well this season, there have been some negative vibes from manager Andre Villas-Boas, and after their 1-0 win against Hull City at the end of October he had this to say about the fans:
“We looked like the away team. We played in a difficult atmosphere with almost no support,” “We have a wonderful set of fans but they can do better. We don’t need the negativity of today.”
Those comments are not really what will get the manager strong fan support at Tottenham, just let’s leave it at that.
Newcastle will have a chance of getting something out of this game, but only if we can defend well and play somewhere near our best form.
And Moussa Sissoko has said things are upbeat in the squad at the moment:
“All the players are very happy, but this is another game. We have to train hard,. “Tottenham are a good team, but if we play hard together, maybe we can win the game.”
It should be a good and close game on Sunday, but if Newcastle can take the spirit they showed against Chelsea into the battle, we’ll have a good chance of taking something from this tough game.
Let us know how you think things will go on Sunday.
