              Newcastle vs Tottenham Hotspur: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips

              Tottenham make the trip up north to take on Newcastle in a game which will have an important say in the race for the European places.

              Date: 13/04/24

              Kick-off time: 12:30

              Venue: St James’ Park

              Newcastle’s hopes of a second consecutive season of Champions League football are over, but they are still well in the hunt to secure European qualification for next year. They currently occupy eighth, but are just two points behind Manchester United and one behind West Ham, who are sixth and seventh. Victory against Tottenham would give them important momentum heading into the final stretch, and would cut the deficit between themselves and this weekend’s opponents to 10 points. Defeat, however, could see them fall further behind and open up the door for the likes of Chelsea, Brighton and Wolves to gain ground.

              Spurs are in control of their own destiny, with them sitting in fourth place, above Aston Villa on goal difference. With seven games to go, they will be hopeful of securing Champions League qualification, but they still have to play each of the top three teams, making victory in this game crucial. Any dropped points could hand the initiative back to Villa, who have a more favourable fixture list remaining.

              Ange Postecoglou’s backline could be in for a long afternoon, as the hosts have scored 14 goals in their last five at St James’ Park. Alexander Isak has scored five goals in his last five, so will certainly be one for the visitors to look out for. Anthony Gordon will also be a threat, having scored nine goals this season so far. Spurs have won just one of their last six away games. However, they also have the talent to trouble the Newcastle defence. Heung-Min Son is the main danger, with his 15 goals this season only bettered by five players in the league.

              There have been plenty of goals in the last six Premier League meetings between the pair, in which Spurs have won three to Newcastle’s two with one draw. Overall, there have been 30 goals between them, with some resounding victories for each. Last season, Newcastle famously beat their opponents 6-1, with three goals coming in the opening 10 minutes, and five after 21. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended 4-1 in the favour of Spurs, as Destiny Udogie, Richarlison (x2) and Son got on the scoresheet before a late Joelinton consolation.

              Form Guide

              Newcastle

              In their last five games, Newcastle have won two, lost two and drawn one. Their two defeats came at the beginning of this run, against Chelsea in the league and Man City in the FA Cup. First was the loss at Stamford Bridge in which they fell 3-2. The Blues made a quick start going ahead through Nicolas Jackson, but Alexander Isak levelled the score just before half-time. Chelsea retook the lead with a Cole Palmer goal, before Mykhailo Mudryk added some insurance. Jacob Murphy pulled another back but it was too late for a comeback.

              They took on City in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, but were eliminated as they lost 2-0. The Magpies offered no threat and were dominated throughout. Bernardo Silva secured the win with a first half brace. This preceded an incredible 4-3 win at home to West Ham. Isak opened the scoring from the spot, but the game was turned on its head before the break as Michail Antonio and Mohammed Kudus scored. Jarrod Bowen added a third early in the second half, but another penalty got the hosts back in the game. Seemingly headed for defeat, substitute Harvey Barnes stepped up with a brace including one in the 90th minute to snatch victory.

              Their only draw was at home to Everton, in which they conceded late on to share the points. Isak scored again, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s 88th minute penalty meant it ended 1-1. Their most recent game was a narrow 1-0 win at Fulham. Bruno Guimaraes scored the winner with less than 10 minutes to go.

              Tottenham

              In their last five games, Tottenham have won three, drawn one and lost one. It has been an inconsistent stretch for Spurs as they fight for top four. The first game in this run was a resounding 4-0 win at fellow European challengers Aston Villa. James Maddison put them ahead in the second half, a lead which was immediately doubled by Brennan Johnson. John McGinn saw red for the hosts, making Spurs’ control much firmer. Heung-Min Son and Timo Werner added two more in stoppage time.

              This preceded a 3-0 away defeat at fellow Londoners Fulham. This took place prior to the international break in which they were crushed by their opponents. Spurs had edged possession, but gave up more attempts on goal. It was goalless for the majority of the first half, but the deadlock was broken by Rodrigo Muniz just before the break. The visitors then made the worst possible start to the second half as they went 2-0 down to a Sasa Lukic goal. Muniz then grabbed his second later on to complete the rout. They had to come from behind to beat Luton 2-1 at home. Tahith Chong opened the scoring in the third minute, but an Issa Kabore own goal and Son strike turned it around.

              Their only draw was against West Ham, as the game ended 1-1. Brennan Johnson broke the deadlock in just the fifth minute, but Kurt Zouma cancelled out the opener less than 15 minutes later and this is how it finished. Their most recent game was a home fixture against Nottingham Forest, which they won 3-1. An own goal put them in front, though this was cancelled out by Chris Wood. Micky van de Ven and Pedro Porro secured the three points in the second half.
