This will be a tough, tough game. Ange has to take the sting out of the barcodes, by being a little less gung-ho in the opening 30 mins. Shush the crowd down.

Id be surprised if we won, as Newcastle have been excellent at home. So, if we come away with a point I won’t cry over it.

Hope that Ange starts PEH and Benta in this one. Biss and Sarr need to have a seat and time to get their heads straight.

Also hope Richy is back for this, as we need a player with a bit more physicality up front.

It’s a huge game for us. Villa play 3 PL games after this before we play again (and 4 games in total) so in theory we could be as much as 9 points behind by the NLD. I think 3 points though transfers all the pressure to Villa - they will know they need 2 wins at least from 3 tough games.

if we can get the win I can see a scenario where they only get 3-4 points from their 3 games (Arsenal away, Bournemouth home, Chelsea home) which would put us level or one point behind having played 3 games less. Ok 2 of those 3 are city and arsenal but they would still have Liverpool plus Brighton and palace away to come as their final 3.

TLDR - I think our result is huge for momentum going into tough games for both sides

Honestly think if we go with the same team that started the second half on sunday we can win.

Both teams to score. Going 2-1 Spurs

Gordon and Isak are their big threats, Barnes to a lesser extent

Aside from Bruno in midfield the rest of the side is definitely weaker.

This game may suit bissouma and sarr more than Hojberg and bentancur as the assumption is they will attack and leave gaps

This is the game to get Son out on the left, seem to recall he absolutely roasted Trippier last time out. Richy through the middle.

I’d give Maddison a rest/wake up call and start GLC with Bentancur and give Biss another run although after last week wouldn’t be disappointed to see PEH start.

I couldn't see us dropping Werner, Trippier would struggle with his pace too. I think the front 3 remains for now. The big decision is in midfield and the number 10.

Three unbeaten games and next up is an early kick off at Newcastle, the scene of one of the most embarrassing PL performances in Tottenham's history. Lest we forget, and believe me I'm trying my best to do so, we were 5-0 down inside 21 minutes and things were that bad that a 6-1 loss was actually a relief! I honestly feared we would concede 10 or 12 goals the way we were letting them score so easily. We have a new manager and a higher position than them in the league this time around and their confidence levels are not as high as they were last year. Newcastle still have some key injuries but they ground out a 1-0 win at Fulham after being battered for the first 20 minutes so they still have something about them. They can ill-afford to give us as many chances as they gave Fulham without consequences. However, although we beat Forest we also had a worrying 20 minute spell where we lost our way badly and a better team than them could have made hay before Ange was able to revive us at half time. So, to sum up, both teams have goals in them and give chances away too. Neither team can afford to switch off for too long at St James Park or they will probably be in bother. I smell a goalfest with us emerging with the points at the end as our fitness levels pay off. Newcastle United 2 Tottenham Hotspur 3. COYS!

Mostly the same side that started the last game for me, but would prefer Bentancur to Bissouma. But whoever we play CM it's Werner and Johnson on the wings.

I’m not so sure. It’s so obvious that for most teams the way to play us is low block and hit on the break, and Newcastle clearly have the potential to do the latter with Isak, Gordon, Barnes, Bruno Guimaraes etc. The big question marks currently are over their defence, and the low block might help protect their lack of pace there too.

I would probably go Bissouma, Bentancur and Maddison for this one. The West Ham game is maybe not the best game to get an accurate gauge on the capability of that trio, as West Ham often allow the opposition more of the ball and just sit back, but I did like the level of control those three seemed to show. For whatever reason the inclusion of Bentancur seemed to bring out better from both Bissouma and Maddison. But yeah, hard to know if that was a one-off or not.

I can understand maybe wanting the legs of Sarr, of the more solid and defensively aware Hojbjerg though, so I can probably understand a few of the midfield combinations we could see.
