“Pressure is on Tottenham”- Newcastle United star makes Spurs claim ahead of Premier League clash

Callum Wilson says the pressure is on Tottenham Hotspur to beat Newcastle United in Premier League encounter

Newcastle United star Callum Wilson thinks that the pressure will be on Tottenham Hotspur to get a positive result against the Magpies in the two teams’ Premier League encounter on Sunday.

Spurs are on the back of a horrific 2-0 loss against Manchester United where they were bested in nearly every department on the pitch. The Toons, meanwhile, beat Everton 1-0 in their latest league encounter via a Miguel Almiron goal.

Allan Saint-Maximin and Alexander Isak have been absent from first-team football recently but Wilson still believes Spurs will be under pressure when the two teams meet. He said at a pre-match press conference (h/t Daily Mail):

“We’ve gone to Man United, picked up a positive result then won at home, so you could say the pressure isn’t on us and the pressure is on Tottenham.”

“They’re at home and kind of have that confidence, but we want to go there and test ourselves against a team that is up there in the league as well.”

Wilson is perhaps correct here. Spurs are at home, in north London, and need to respond to a horrid showing at Old Trafford.

Newcastle managed to get a draw against the Red Devils earlier this month, which shows what a good job Eddie Howe is doing at St. James’ Park. Newcastle are a good outfit that has ambitions of being one of the best clubs in England under Saudi ownership.

But they aren’t that quite yet. Hence, losing against them would be seen as a disaster right now and beating them would be chalked down as something the Lilywhites were expected to do anyway.

Lucas Moura didn’t start against Manchester United while Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski were out of the matchday squad in that game. It’s not like we don’t have our injury problems up front but regardless of that, one would hope that Antonio Conte has enough at his disposal to see off Newcastle.
