Tottenham travel up to Newcastle on Wednesday evening, with Jose Mourinho looking for his first-ever Premier League win at St. James’ Park.
After coming under criticism in recent weeks, Tottenham travel to Tyneside buoyed by Sunday's 2-1 North London derby win over Arsenal, battling back from a goal behind to leapfrog their local rivals in the Premier League table.
Returning to the Champions League looks beyond Spurs now, but they can qualify for the Europa League and it's a point of pride to finish above the Gunners for a fifth-straight season.
Mourinho has been reticent to rest and rotate even as the fixtures have come thick and fast, so you can expect to see key attackers Harry Kane and Son Heung-min up front as ever, having contributed 23 goals between them so far this season (13 for Kane, 10 for Son). They're the two favourites to get on the scoresheet here, with Kane 7/2 to be the first goalscorer and Son 9/2.
Newcastle had looked in fine fettle since the restart with two wins and two draws from the first game, with results including an emphatic 3-0 win over Sheffield United and a 4-1 win at Bournemouth. But they've since suffered over the past week, thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City before going from a goal ahead to lose 2-1 to relegation battlers Watford, giving away two penalties.
We recommend backing Mourinho to finally break his hoodoo at St. James Park here. Tottenham have won on four of their last five visits to Tyneside and have looked in better shape over the past week. They’re just 3/4 to get an away win here, or 7/1 to get a narrow 1-0 win.
