The Premier League, the Champions League and every other major league in football have fixtures to offer as we come close to the business end of the season. So grab your jerseys, some popcorn and sit tight because the Premier League is taking off.
Let’s Celebrate Matchday 31 of 38
Matchday 31 of 38 is surely an exciting gameweek as it offers top fixtures. From Liverpool vs Watford to Chelsea vs Brentford, matchday 31 gives you every reason to smile, to laugh and if your team loses, to cry.
But for now, let’s focus on the fixture that is mentioned in the title. Tottenham vs Newcastle. Two clubs looking to venture into a new direction with Tottenham doing so with a new manager and Newcastle doing so with a lot of resources and we mean, a lot!.
One does not have to go into detail about how rich Newcastle are because it is all an old story now. Having spent millions in the January transfer window, Newcastle are ready and have already shown major signs of improvement.
But can they stop a team driven by the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung Min, Dejan Kulusevski and the tactical brain of Antonio Conte?
When and where is this fixture kicking off?
Tottenham will face Newcastle on the 3rd of April at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Three points for Tottenham or disappointment at home?
If there’s one thing in common between Tottenham and Newcastle, it has to be the fact that both these clubs have seen their season hit a major turnaround. Soon after hiring Conte, Tottenham seems to be a whole different team, despite including the occasional mistakes that classify them to be Spurs.
They are good on the counterattack and have certainly improved defensively, which is a fair point to add considering how Conte is fixated on conceding fewer goals. On the other hand, Eddie Howe has also done a good job with Newcastle as he took away fears of relegation and provided some kind of satisfaction for fans.
All their January signings seem to be valuable additions and have certainly improved the team. St.James Park has probably never been this happy in recent times and if all things go according to plan, we may see more signings in the summer.
But the question, for now, would be whether Newcastle have enough to take on Tottenham? And unfortunately, there’s no straight answer because there is never one for football. If there was, football betting would be easy. So let’s focus on finding multiple answers.
On paper, everyone would claim that Tottenham can take all three points and for all the right reasons, it seems so. They have good options in attack, their midfield seems to have improved ever since Dejan Kulusevski joined their ranks and their defence has also been strengthened.
However, Spurs have made mistakes and will probably continue making them, especially when it comes to conceding. And if that happens again, we might see another Conte tell-it-all interview.
On the other hand, a draw or a win for Newcastle are also on the cards, although a draw seems more realistic than the other. With their style of play, Newcastle does seem like a team that can take all their opportunities and if they score, Spurs are going to have a hard time.
With good attacking options, Newcastle could bring in their A-game, although it will be difficult when you are facing a team driven by Antonio Conte.
