Spurs will host Newcastle for the first match of premier league round 25. The early kick off at the Wembley stadium will offer the hosts another chance to cement their place in the top three.
The match will be the climax of a busy run for Spurs in a fortnight that will see them travel to Chelsea and Palace for the FA and League cup then host Watford before getting into this match. The squad has appeared strained in recent weeks and Mauricio Pochettino will look to approach these games with low tempo. With harry Kane probably out until then, Son Heung-Min will be the side’s key striker.
Newcastle continue to struggle and float above the drop one. They will be coming from a home tie against Man city so they shouldn’t be so fresh themselves. Rafa Benitez has the ability to take points from big teams; Spurs need to be wary in this one. Fabian is emerging as an unlikely goal scorer and will once again be the man to watch.
