Newcastle vs Tottenham Prediction & Betting tips
As in the previous season, the Tottenham Hotspurs contest their opening match at Newcastle United this season. Almost to the day exactly one year kept the Spurs the upper hand, which one must have again this season on the screen, as regards the fight for the English championship. In the case of the Magpies, however, the mood is no longer the best, which is mainly due to a single man: President Mike Ashley. He is the main reason that his magpies have not strengthened significantly this season. In the match between Newcastle and Tottenham the guest is the favorite according to the odds.
Yoshinori Muto for almost eleven million euros from Mainz, Fabian Schär for four million euros from Deportivo La Coruna from the second Spanish league and on deadline day just so Federico Fernandez for just under seven million euros from Swansea – that’s it! These are the only noteworthy newcomers to Newcastle United in an English Premier League that has been awarded with extremely high TV funds. Coach Rafael Benitez only got it because he sold with Aleksandar Mitrovic for twenty million euros to Fulham, Mikel Merino for twelve million to Real Sociedad and Chancel Mbemba for eight million euros to FC Porto equal to several of its actors. Overall, Newcastle scored a transfer increase of more than twelve million euros this summer – that means something in England. President Mike Ashley, who took over the club in 2007, now describes this investment as a disaster that cost him all his money. He has not found a buyer for the club yet and only invests enough to keep Newcastle in the Premier League – much to the chagrin of the followers and to the annoyance of coach Benitez, who is starting to run out of money seems.
Newcastle finished last season with a win over Chelsea after the Magpies lost all four games before. All in all, thanks to Benitez’s good work, the bottom line was tenth with limited resources. In preparation for the new season, however, revealed the problems that brings lack of reinforcement with it. Newcastle did not score a single goal in the last three of their five matches. While at the beginning St. Patrick’s from Ireland could be defeated 2-0, there was a 2: 2 against second division Hull City, a goalless draw against FC Porto and a 0: 4 defeat against Sporting Braga and last a 0: 1 loss to Augsburg.
As Newcastle President Ashley is criticized for not letting loose money to attract new players to St. James’ Park and a team like Tottenham is no different! On the contrary: Vincent Janssen returned after a loan from Fenerbahce Istanbul, otherwise there is no real newcomer to the Spurs, who currently have a lot of money to pump into the new stadium at White Hart Lane! But: Tottenham has not given a single player and maintained his strong squad from last season. Toby Alderweireld was also held after he was associated with Manchester United on Deadline Day. A particularly strong sign was superstar Harry Kane, who extended his contract with Tottenham for six years shortly before the World Cup. In this respect, the situation at Tottenham is not comparable to that of Newcastle despite no single signing up. This was also seen in the preparation. At the International Champions Cup Tottenham struck AS Roma 4-1 and AC Milan 1-0 and lost to FC Barcelona only on penalties.
In the last test during the preparation, there was indeed a fierce 1: 4 pack against Girona from the Spanish La Liga, but this game took place on Spanish soil, after the Spurs were still active in the United States three days earlier. In addition, Mauricio Pochettino was almost exclusively junior players compete, which were supported only by Heung -min Son as a potential regular player. In this respect one should not overvalue this bankruptcy. The last season in the Premier League Tottenham finished third. The last title is ten years back when Tottenham won the League Cup in 2008. The bookmakers tend not to trust the Spurs this season the championship. Of the Big Six in England Tottenham leaves behind the bookmakers only the Arsenal FC.
