Tottenham vs Newcastle: Top free betting tips
Two of the Premier League's best teams come head to head on Sunday when Tottenham face Newcastle at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Both teams are suffering from a severe injury list which makes it a hard game to call but our Tottenham vs Newcastle prediction is for a home win mainly due to how poor Newcastle have been away from home this season.
Match result prediction: Tottenham to win
Tottenham will be very disappointed with how they performed against West Ham on Thursday night, especially after going a goal ahead. They have lost four of their last five league fixtures but they were excellent against Man City last weekend and we anticipate a response after throwing the game away against West Ham.
Most importantly, however, they are facing a Newcastle side who have the fifth-worst record away from home in the Premier League. Only Burnley, Luton, Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest have picked up fewer points on the road than the Magpies.
Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 goals
Goals are almost a guarantee these days in games involving Tottenham. Ange Postecoglou refuses to set his team up in any other way despite their extensive injury list which means this will likely be another end-to-end thriller. 20 goals have been scored in their last five league fixtures and four of their last five matches against Newcastle have seen over 3.5 goals scored.
Correct score prediction: Tottenham 3-1 Newcastle
Neither side is exactly full of confidence coming into this one after they both lost their midweek fixtures but home comforts should work in Tottenham's favour here. There is revenge on the cards too after Newcastle hammered Newcastle 6-1 at the end of last season.
Tottenham vs Newcastle team news
Tottenham predicted lineup vs Newcastle
Ange Postecoglou currently has ten players unavailable for this fixture, which in many ways is a result considering that figure was as high as 12 a week ago. Pape Sarr and Richarlison are now ready to start, but key players such as James Maddison, Micky van de Ven and Rodrigo Bentancur remain out. There are also doubts about the fitness of Son Heung-Min who hobbled off the pitch on Wednesday night.
Vicario – Porro, Romero, Davies, Udogie – Sarr, Bissouma – Johnson, Richarlison, Kulusevski – Son
Newcastle predicted lineup vs Tottenham
Postecoglou won't get any sympathy from Eddie Howe for his injury list with the Newcastle boss also missing several important players for this one. The latest player to be ruled out for a significant period of time is Nick Pope who dislocated his shoulder a week ago. Martin Dubravka will start in goal for the Magpies while the rest of the team picks itself due to injuries.
Dubravka – Trippier, Lascelles, Schar, Livramento – Guimaraes, Miley, Joelinton – Almiron, Isak, Gordon

Newcastle fans will have a hell of a journey on Sunday as they travel from the North East of England to London in the South. In total, the distance stands at 280 miles and the journey will take around five hours for those Newcastle fans travelling by car or coach.
