Paul Merson has some good things to say about Newcastle after our great display and win against Liverpool on Sunday, but he still thinks Newcastle will suffer defeat at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
Tottenham have a good record in the league this season and at home they have four wins and four draws and have only lost on Premier League game all season – in the very first game at Old Trafford on August 8th when they went down 1-0.
So it’s obvious – they are due a defeat.
Harry Kane in action at West Brom last week
And they had an easy home win last night in the Europa League and beat Monaco 4-1 with a hat-trick from Lamela coming after only 37 minutes.
They also rested Harry Kane for the Newcastle game and he was an unused substitute last night.
Spurs won their Group J with 13 points from 6 games – 3 points above Anderlecht.
While Spurs haven’t lost many games this season they also have only won six league games so far and drawn eight – so there may be a chance we can get a draw on Sunday.
This is what Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has said about the game in north London on Sunday:
“I know Liverpool were supposed to turn up against Newcastle and turn them over, the same as people expect Arsenal to do against Villa on Sunday. But Newcastle have a bit more about them.”
“It just shows how ruthless this league can be sometimes. Newcastle beat Liverpool and then have to go to White Hart Lane, against a Spurs side who have lost just once this season.”
“But I think Spurs are getting into that mold at the moment, they’re maybe a tad tired, and they look to be going out with the attitude of making sure they don’t lose the game before they go out to win the game.”
“Newcastle’s result was phenomenal, but I do expect Spurs to win this, they are a good side with in-form players. They need to break down the brick wall here after two draws.”
Paul predicts a 3-0 defeat for Newcastle – that wouldn’t be good.
Almost half of our fans think we can get something out of this game – that would be great!
Can you help 3 year-old Kian?
On 31st October 2013 then 18 month old Kian from Prudhoe was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma cancer – and it was high risk stage 4 plus MYCN – which is the most aggressive form of this rare cancer.
The parents were told he had a 50/50 chance of survival during treatment and if successful an 80% chance of a relapse, and while the initial treatment seemed to be successful a relapse has taken place.
Advanced treatment for Kian is only available in Germany or the USA and the cost of treatment is £550K.
His parents are trying desperately to raise the money after an agonizing last couple of years – please take a look on this web-site where there is a lot more information – and see if you can help out.
