Spurs have not been in good form of late and were lucky to beat Watford last time out with two late goals in their 2-1 win at home which is Wembley at the moment.
And Newcastle got the result of the Premier League season on Tuesday night in our shock 2-1 win at home to Manchester City.
That broke City’s 8 game winning streak, and we were the first team to score against them in 630 minutes of football when Salomon Rondon scored the equalizing goal after 66 minutes.

So there is hope for us today and we would be delighted to get something out of this game.
Here’s what Glaswegian Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas thinks about the game this afternoon:
“It has been a good-news week for Newcastle with a record signing and this should be an interesting game.”
“But with Son coming back and Llorente scoring, that was a massive lift for Spurs and they now have a seven-point gap to fourth place.”
“That is significant with the injuries they have had and I fancy Spurs in this one.”
“Newcastle will sit in with a counterattacking mentality, but Spurs will break them down and I would be surprised if Son does not score again.”
“Spurs came from behind against Watford – they were a bit fortunate to get there.”
“There is a strong personality there, but you can see, they are missing Kane and Alli.”
“Son makes a big difference, but how valuable is that goal going to be for Llorente?”
“But also, Newcastle got stronger defensively at home to Man City.”
“They will sit in and make it awkward – Rondon is a handful.”
“So they have a lot of hard work in front of them and again, it may take them until the last five minutes to win this.”
We shall see about that.
