Betting tips Tottenham Hotspur vs. Newcastle United

Tottenham too strong for Newcastle

Tottenham look to continue their impressive start to 2019-20 campaign when they face beleaguered Newcastle at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Can Steve Bruce get his Magpies their first point of the season? Have a read of our preview here:

Newcastle causing no shocks

Most onlookers will be unsurprised by Newcastle’s start to the new campaign. They lost on the opening day at St James Park and were then undone by a bit of Finnish finishing when Teemu Pukki netted a hat-trick.

It was far too easy for the Canaries and even though they pulled a goal back through Jonjo Shelvey late on, they were very poor and also lost Joelinton to injury so, all in all, not a good weekend for Newcastle.

"We were nowhere near good enough and it was a disappointing afternoon with and without the ball,” Bruce said following the loss.

He will need to find a way of getting his side to, not only to score goals, but also to find the defensive strength that helped them avoid the drop last season. It was this backline that kept the Magpies well away from the relegation places and that kind of personnel will be called upon as Spurs hope to continue their unbeaten start.

Spurs having a shakeup

Tottenham will have to deal with the added pressure that success brings, and they have been busy upgrading the side in order to avoid a situation like last season where they were unable to effectively deal with injuries.

Tottenham have never been a side to splash the cash around and yet this season they have broken their own transfer record with the £55m addition of Lyon midfielder Tanguay Ndombele. The Frenchman looked excellent in the first game of the season as Spurs came from behind to beat Villa.

They also brought Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham for £25 million while agreeing a loan deal for Argentine midfielder Giovani lo Celso from Betis. This squad now feels as though it has all the components required to go and compete with the best in the Premier League again in 2019-20.

They should have far too much for Newcastle, especially at home and it could well see Steve Bruce get some stick from the Magpies faithful.

Tottenham v Newcastle betting tip

Maurizio Pochettino’s men have made a positive start to the new season whereas Newcastle, unsurprisingly, have not. This is why backing the home side to win to nil at odds of 20/21 could be a shrewd one to back on Sunday.
