Paul Merson admits the Newcastle vs Tottenham game is a difficult one to predict with Tottenham having a weakened side because of the World Cup and their best players not being available tomorrow.
He seems to take the easy way out and goes for a 0-0 draw – and we suppose that would be a decent result for Newcastle.
But we have a chance tomorrow to play against a weakened top side, and Rafa will be wanting a win especially with the first 8 games including five top six clubs.
Rafa Benitez – will want a win tomorrow
Here’s what Paul has said about the game:
“This is a tough one. This was an early game last year, and Spurs got a couple of late goals, but I feel they’ll find it hard due to the World Cup.”
Spurs just haven’t got their players back. Rafa Benitez will make them hard to beat. “
“Spurs won’t have the goals early on so Newcastle will hold on this year. I’m going for a goalless draw.”
Here’s how our fans think it will go tomorrow.
Howay The Lads!!
