Tottenham v Newcastle to end in a 3-3 draw as per Chris Sutton

Both teams coming into this fixture are on the back of disappointing losses, and that is why, both, Newcastle and Tottenham would have a point or two to prove when they lock horns at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

As the Lilywhites prepare to face Newcastle United, BBC pundit Chris Sutton offers his insights, highlighting the importance of a positive result for Spurs after a challenging run of form.

Ange Postecoglou’s side has endured a tough stretch, securing just one point from their last five games. The Australian manager, known for his commitment to an attacking style of play, faces the pressure to turn things around. Sutton acknowledges Postecoglou’s commitment to playing in the same way, highlighting the unpredictability that comes with such an approach.

Here is what Sutton had to say via BBC previewing Ange vs Eddie Howe predicting a 3-3 draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium:

“Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou needs a positive result after taking only one point from the past five games.”

“But we already know he will carry on playing in the same way, which means anything can happen here.”

“Newcastle’s away form has not been great recently, with just one league win on the road so far this season, but they are not going to change their approach either.”

“Both teams are missing some key players through injury but neither side will just try to shut up shop. I feel like this is going to be really open, with both teams going for it… and lots of goals.”

Need results soon

The injury concerns have exacerbated Tottenham’s situation, with key players sidelined in recent matches. This includes the likes of James Maddison, Micky van de Ven, and Rodrigo Bentancur, creating challenges for Postecoglou in fielding a cohesive and competitive lineup.

The absence of key contributors has been evident in Spurs’ recent struggles, adding to the urgency for a positive outcome against Newcastle. The last time both these teams clashed, it ended with a not-so-pretty scoreline and we would not want to remember that.

On the flip side, the Magpies are also approaching this fixture with their own set of challenges. Eddie Howe’s side is coming off a 3-0 defeat to Everton, intensifying their determination to rebound away from home.

Tottenham need to extract revenge against Newcastle for the 6-1 loss last season.
