Sunderland have won three games in a row against Newcastle, and they must be rubbing their hands at the inept display of Newcastle last night at White Hart Lane, and in particular the poor performance of Newcastle’s third choice goalkeeper Jak Alnwick, who unfortunately was responsible for two of Spurs’ goals.
Alan Pardew – last night at White Hart Lane
And it’s almost certain that Sunderland will target the 21 year-old goalkeeper on Sunday from the start of the game, and if Sunderland get the first goal, the unthinkable could even happen and we could lose four in a tow to the Black Cats.
Newcastle also seem to be a in a terrible state as far as injuries are concerned – and Papiss Cisse, Cheick Tiote and Sammy Ameobi all missed the game last night for some reason, Daryl Janmaat was suspended and nine first team players were not available through injury.
Newcastle is looking more like a hospital than a football club these days, with so many players receiving treatment.
It looks like the best we can do for Sunday is another patch-work side, and that;s hardly good for such a big game.
These injures are startling to really impact Newcastle’s season, and a very good question is why do we have so many? 🙁
