Why you should back Tottenham
Spurs have played very well at home this season, posting nine victories, the fourth-most in the Premier League. They have scored 26 goals and allowed 16 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Tottenham is a better team by any measure, and prolific scorers Harry Kane (20 goals in all competitions) and Son Heung-Min (14) can cause major problems for any team. Spurs have scored 15 more goals than the Magpies this season (47-32) and allowed 13 fewer (36-49). Tottenham is 6-2-1 in the last nine meetings and won 3-2 in the reverse fixture back in October at St. James' Park.
Kane and Son both scored in that match, and Tottenham held the ball 65 percent of it and had a 14-7 edge in shots. The Magpies had one shot on target. They are second-to-last in the league in possession (39.8 percent), so Spurs should control this one. Newcastle puts just 30 percent of its shots on target, while Tottenahm leads the league in putting just over 38 percent of its attempts on net.
Why you should back Newcastle
The Magpies spent more money than any team in the world, and they went on a nine-game unbeaten run in league play before their two-game skid. One of the two losses was to league power Chelsea but they also lost to a poor Everton team they had beaten 3-1 five weeks earlier. Veteran Chris Wood and 24-year-old Bruno Guimaraes were among the additions in January, and both scored in a 2-1 win against Southampton before the goals dried up the past two games. Wood has scored 137 goals in 416 matches across three divisions in England.
The unbeaten run included a 1-1 draw with Manchester United, and Newcastle yielded just two goals in the losses but failed to score. Before those two games, it had not been held off the score sheet since a loss to league leader Manchester City in late December. The break has given the Magpies time to regroup and get healthy, and they face a Spurs squad that has been wildly inconsistent. Allan Saint-Maximin, the top scorer with five goals, should be back in the starting lineup Sunday, and goalkeeper Martin Dubravka also is expected to be available.
