NEW vs TOT Dream11: Newcastle are sliding ever closer to the relegation trapdoor after a torturous 3-0 defeat at the hands of fellow strugglers Brighton two weeks back leaves the Magpies only two points above the bottom three. Steve Bruce’s side have not won in their last six Premier League games, picking up just three points in the process and Bruce is coming under heavy pressure by the understandably furious Newcastle supporters. Tottenham look set to capitalise on the hosts’ struggles with Jose Mourinho’s side looking to back up their respectable 0-2 win away at Aston Villa last time out. Mourinho’s men have little excuse not to get a positive result at St James’ Park when considering the turmoil, plus rumours of a falling out between Bruce and the players at Newcastle, so an away victory for Spurs does look very much on the cards.

Tottenham have been unplayable whenever they start well. Most of their dominant wins this season have come when Kane and Son see a lot of the ball, counterattack and execute passes that free up space. We expect Spurs to hit Newcastle similarly and leave them lurching. Bruce’s misery is set to continue. In our NEW vs TOT Today Match Prediction odds, we back for a 2-0 win for Tottenham in this match.
