TOT vs NEW Dream11 Prediction: Newcastle make the trip down south as they are set to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. Jose Mourinho’s men have been in fine form this season since their 1-0 loss to Everton on the opening matchday. They also beat Southampton 5-2 away from home with Heung-Min Son bagging 4 goals and Harry Kane providing 4 assists. They have also won their Europa League Qualifiers’ third-round game after beating Shkendija 3-1 and reaching the finals of the qualifiers. They have bounced back well and also completed two high-profile signings in Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale (on loan) from Real Madrid who will massively improve their squad. Newcastle have also enjoyed a good free-scoring match when they trampled Morecambe 0-7 away from home. They have won three out of the four games that they have played, losing only to Brighton on the second matchday of the season. Steve Bruce will want to bounce back from that loss by beating a Jose Mourinho side away from home which will not only give them the three points but also be a massive confidence booster for the Magpies. This will be a must-win for Jose Mourinho’s side as Spurs looks to challenge the very best teams in England.

The Magpies will be fighting the odds, numerically mentioned as 23/4, as they take on Tottenham Hotspur. They will be wary of what Spurs did to Southampton and will know the consequences of giving them an early goal. Tottenham have some very devastating forwards in Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Lucas Moura and will be dangerous in counter-attacks and build-up play alike. Jose Mourinho has been touted as one of the best managers the game has ever seen and he built his reputation by maintaining flawless home-records. Around the fresh turf of Tottenham’s new ground, Mourinho will look to build a fortress. He has the means to emulate some really good squads he has managed over the past but Steve Bruce’s experience in the Premier League should not be underestimated at all. He pulled off an upset away to Spurs last season and would love to do something similar when they meet on Sunday. The unfortunate bit is that he will be without the services of Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lewis, both of whom have been great for Newcastle United. But they still have good, experienced attacking players and if they play their cards right, an upset is still very much on the table. That said, the Magpies can pull the rabbit out of the hat in this TOT vs NEW Dream11 Match Prediction
Harry Kane – The talismanic Englishman has had a splendid start to the season with 7 goal contributions (3 goals and 4 assists) in just 4 games. He has been crucial for Tottenham for years now and has scored more than 20 goals a season on a consistent basis. A striker of his quality, under the management of Jose Mourinho whilst playing alongside the likes of Lucas Moura, Heung-Min Son and later, Gareth Bale, it’s going to be goals galore for Harry Kane.
Callum Wilson – After making the switch from Bournemouth to Newcastle in the transfer window, Callum Wilson has found the back of the net once in the Premier League. He was signed to bring in a proper goal-scoring name into the team and making a difference in games like these will be first priority on his job description. Spurs’ centre-backs will have to be vigilant and alert about Wilson’s movements in the box or risk getting punished.
Heung-Min Son – Heung-Min Son was relentless last week and scored 4 goals against Southampton which is quite a rare feat, that too away from home. The South Korean will look to carry on this free scoring form when they take on Newcastle next. He already has 5 goals and 2 assists in 4 games and should he continue this form, Spurs can be one of the top 3 teams this season.
X-factors (differential picks) Bottom of Form
Ryan Fraser – The Scottish international was brought in to be a second-choice winger but with Allan Saint-Maximin’s injury, he will take his place in the side. This is his opportunity to show Steve Bruce that he deserves a place in the starting line-up on a regular basis. With Matt Doherty mostly playing as an attacking full-back, Fraser would love to get into the space vacated by him in the final third and either cut-in or whip some crosses in.
Lucas Moura – The Brazilian is yet to get off the mark for Spurs with only one assist in four games but with the way they have been playing, it seems like only a matter of time before he gets a few goals for himself. Playing alongside some top players, he will look to brush aside last season’s average numbers and start afresh under what looks like a new dawn for Tottenham.
Jeff Hendrick – A new signing from Burnley, Jeff Hendrick has had a great start to the season with a goal and assist two games for the Magpies. He will look to exploit the vulnerabilities on the right-flank and force Ben Davies into making an error. His link-up play with the likes of Callum Wilson can be crucial in determining the result of the game.
