Predicted Tottenham Hotspur line-up to take on Newcastle United in the Premier League 

The Tottenham Hotspur vs Newcastle United game has more stakes for one team than the other. Spurs signed Antonio Conte to help the team get back on track. Even though the Italian manager has successfully changed the team’s approach, they are still far from winning a title. Moreover, without a Champions League spot in the next season, his work with the unit will go unnoticed.                  

After some transfer boots in the winter window, Newcastle United have picked themselves up from the relegation zone, but they are still far from a competitive team. They lost their last two games to Southampton and Chelsea. It remains to be seen whether they can hold their ground against a quality Tottenham line-up.           

Team News

Ryan Sessegnon is set to miss his fifth consecutive match due to a hamstring injury. Even though the Tottenham manager expected Oliver Skipp to return before the Newcastle clash, it seems he needs additional time for recovery as he hasn’t returned to full fitness yet. Due to the injury concerns of Ben Davies and Japhet Tanganga, Conte would have to face a depth issue with his defensive contingent.

Probable Tottenham Hotspur XI

Formation: 3-4-2-1

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris still possesses incredibly safe hands despite his growing age. The Frenchman has been a reliable player for the Spurs for many years.    

Sergio Reguilón (LB)

Reguilón has grasped the opportunities thrown at him and has performed widely in the last few matches. His incredible form hasn’t let the team feel the absence of Sessegnon, who remains sidelined.             

Cristian Romero (CB)

After returning from injury, Romero has given some top-level performances. His passion was visible against Manchester United, which suggests that he is committed to the project at Tottenham.  

Eric Dier (CB)

Dier remains one of the first choice centre-half of Antonio Conte. The Italian has shown immense trust in him, and the Englishman has returned the favour with some solid defensive performances.             

Ben Davies (CB)

Davies has barely missed fixtures in the ongoing term. His incredible passing abilities in pressurized situations have helped Tottenham build up from the back.

Matt Doherty (RB)

Antonio Conte’s move to use Doherty ahead of Emerson Royal has proven fruitful. Even though the Brazilian star offered some top-notch attacking skills, he lacked on the defensive side; hence the Irishman’s inclusion has given much more stability to the team.     

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM)

Since joining the team in the winter transfer window, Bentancur’s influence has been instant. He has been proving to be sensational in making moves and finding spaces in the crucial region of the field.         

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (CM)

Højbjerg has proven to be a top midfielder under Antonio Conte. His reliability has helped the team successfully perform fluid movements.       

Dejan Kulusevski (RW)

Another winter signing who has flourished under Antonio Conte is Kulusevski. The Swedish striker’s productivity in front of the goal has solved the attacking depth problem of the team.

Son Heung-min (LW)

After scoring two goals against West Ham, Son has acclaimed his form. He would hope to strengthen his stats in the coming few games.      

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane had an excellent international spell with the England team. He is the player on whom Tottenham has relied for many years, and it wouldn’t change as long as he puts in the goal-laden spells.        

Tottenham Hotspur VS Newcastle United prediction

Newcastle United still have a long way to go before being considered a competitive side. Only one transfer window couldn’t solve all their problems, which is also visible in their on-field performance. In contrast, Tottenham is a much more organized and committed team that would look to strengthen its position on the table. Hence we are going for a 3-1 win for the Spurs.

Bookies also can’t see past a Spurs here win, with pricing Tottenham as odds on favourites at 1/2. With Harry Kane in fine form at the moment, Betway have boosted Kane to score first and Tottenham to win from 10/3 to 4/1.
