Eddie Howe’s team will have to deal with a long list of injuries for the match, a recurring trend over the 23/24 Premier League season. Missing players include Kieran Trippier, Joelinton, Sven Botman and Callum Wilson. Although it seems a hard task for this team to repeat last season’s top four finish, this match could be a pivotal chance for the Magpies to go out and get three crucial points in their hopes push for European football next term.

Newcastle’s recent form has been quite good, winning three of their last five matches, including last weekend. A blip during the end of 2023 – largely due to a significant number of injuries – saw their hopes for Champions League football collapse. However, a run to end this season could see them partake in the Europa League in September.

Tottenham, currently tied on 60 points with Aston Villa, has a slight edge for the fourth spot due to a better goal difference and a game in hand. Nevertheless, the North London side knows they cannot slow down in the final stretch, especially being close to sealing Champions League football after a disappointing campaign finishing in eighth place outside European football.

The likelihood of fifth place being a Champions League spot in the Premier League took a massive hit this week, meaning that Ange Postecoglou’s men will have to work that much harder to try and finish in the top four. Fortunately for them, they also are in good form, having won three of their last five games. Continuing their impressive form at Tyneside will go a long way in their push for the top four.

Newcastle vs Tottenham Prediction

Draw at 4.00

The last two encounters between Newcastle and Spurs provided a goal fest for the home side, with the latter winning 4-1 earlier this season, and 6-1 to Newcastle in this fixture last season.

In three of the last four head-to-heads between the two teams, the home side won the match. The last draw between Newcastle and Spurs came just over three years ago, with a 2-2 stalemate at St. James’ Park.

Newcastle vs Tottenham Tips

Under 2.5 goals at 3.50

The last eight head-to-heads have seen both teams find the back of the net, with only one of the last six games ending with under 2.5 goals scored. However, given what is on the line for both clubs at this point in the season, expect a tight affair with the two sides cancelling each other out in chances created.
