On Wednesday night, Tottenham face what could be a crucial home game against Newcastle at Wembley in the Premier League.
A 1-0 defeat at West Brom last time out coupled with Chelsea’s recent win over Liverpool has suddenly put Tottenham’s top-four position in doubt.
The North London club are now just two points clear of fifth-place Chelsea, so cannot afford any slip-ups in this clash. However, Mauricio Pochettino’s side has been inconsistent of late in the top-flight, winning just one of their last four league games.
Spurs have however been in better form at Wembley, winning five of their last six league outings, while also keeping clean sheets in five of their last six league games on home soil.
Newcastle have achieved their primary objective this season of survival. A three-game losing run looks set to matter very little to Rafa Benitez’s team, who are tenth-place in the table and looking forward to another campaign in the Premier League.
Top Football BookmakersThe Magpies have a poor record on their travels in the Premier League of late, winning just once in their last seven league outings while suffering four defeats in the process.
The side from the north east has been rather generous in defence on their travels in the top-flight, keeping just one clean sheet in their last 16 away games.
Home win and/or under 2.5 goals
