It’s strange how things sometimes work in this world, and after Newcastle had gone 10 league games without a win, we managed all 3 points last time out at home to Leicester City – and maybe – just maybe – we can get our second successive win at Tottenham on Sunday.
Cheick Tiote – back from injury on Sunday
And it’s not unusual when a club breaks a bad streak like we’ve had without a win, that we get another win soon after.
And with Tottenham playing last night at home to Greek side Asteras Tripolis – they won 5-1 – maybe we are catching them at the right time.
Last night Tottenham were 2-0 up at the half, young Harry Kane got a hat trick and French goalkeeper Lloris was sent of in the last minute after fouling Tasos Tsokanis, and the visitors scored from the ensuing penalty, with Harry Kane in goal.
The 21 year-old English striker could be the danger man on Sunday.
This was Tottenham’s side last night – it was a strong one:
Lloris: Dier Fazio Vertonghen Davies: Capoue, Dembele, Townsend (Lennon 83′ ): Kane, Lamela (Eriksen 76′ ), Adebayor (Chadli 77′ )
Before our win last Saturday we had gone 16 league games with just one win against Cardiff City who were relegated – so that’s just a terrible record, and Alan Pardew still need a few win rather quickly to lift the pressure on both him and the Newcastle players.
We should have a number of players back from injury this Sunday, including Cheick Tiote and Mike Williamson, but only 19% think we can win at White Hart Lane for the second season running.
But with Tottenham being so inconsistent this season, there’s a chance for the Magpies to get a shock win, and at the very least we should be going for all 3 points.
