As outsiders we and Newcastle will both be aiming to rectify our midweek mistakes when we square off in Sunday's Premier League showdown in North London. We made unwanted Premier League history in a 2-1 home defeat to West Ham United on Thursday evening, where our visitors were stunned by relegation-battling Everton.

How quickly the tables can turn in Premier League football - after taking more points than any previous manager in his first 10 games in the competition, Postecoglou's fall from grace saw him set two undesired competition records during Thursday's London derby versus West Ham.

We would initially be rewarded for our fast start with a looping Romero header, but Bowen capitalised on a pair of unfortunate ricochets to level the contest in the second half, before Udogie was the culprit with a poor backpass to Vicario, allowing Ward - Prowse to complete the turnaround at the second time of asking.

As well as failing to make up ground on the Champions League places, fifth-placed we have now become the first team in Premier League history to go 1-0 up in five successive games but not win any of them, as well as losing three straight home fixtures after breaking the deadlock.

A blunt Postecoglou rejected the idea that we are playing good good football after we were punished for our failure to put the game to bed against West Ham, and with a draw against Manchester City being our only notable result since the start of November, we have fallen nine points behind Arsenal at the top of the standings.

Thursday's beating also marked the first time since September 2008 that we had lost three Premier League home games in a row - we have to go further back to November 2004 for the last time that our side were beaten four times on the spin at White Hart Lane in the top flight - but Newcastle have their own wrongs to right this weekend.


Magpies boss Howe can share Postecoglou's pain when it comes to injury crises, although a decimated Newcastle team have often emerged from matches with their heads held high in recent weeks, sinking Chelsea and Manchester United in addition to an unjust draw with Paris Saint-Germain.

However, the loss of first-choice goalkeeper Pope proved to be the straw that broke the Magpies' back against Everton, who put three past Howe's men on Thursday.

Barring their 8-0 annihilation of Sheffield United, points on the road have been incredibly hard to come by for Newcastle, who have now taken just two from the last 12 on offer away from home in the top flight, suffering back-to-back losses to Bournemouth and now Everton in the process.

The seventh-placed visitors remain firmly in the continental conversation, though, and they will overtake us if they can condemn us to a fourth successive home defeat, which will be easier said than done given their recent record on their travels.

Indeed, Newcastle's crushing of Sheffield United is also the only time in their last 16 top-flight away games that they have kept a clean sheet, but the Magpies did the double over us in the 2022-23 season, including that unforgettable 6-1 St James' Park mauling during Stellini's disastrous tenure.

Head-to-Head

We first played competitively against each other on Saturday 18th February 1905 in an FA Cup tie where we shared the spoils at 1-1, play at White Hart Lane. The replay was on the following Wednesday, 22 February 1905 where they thrashed us 4-0 at Newcastle’s ground.

In total we have played each other 168 times where we have won 74, they have won 60 and 34 games have been draws.

League - We have won 67, they 55 with 32 draws

League Cup – We have won 3, they 1 with none drawn

FA Cup – We have won 2, they 5 with 2 draws

One other cup played and we won it.
