Newcastle vs Tottenham
Tottenham and Newcastle return to Premier League action this coming Sunday.
The Lilywhites are set for a trip up north, for a clash with Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United.
Spurs head into the meeting in fairly solid league form, having picked up four wins from their last five outings.
This run has seen Jose Mourinho’s side climb up to 6th in the Premier League table.
And with nine games of the season left to play, Tottenham remain in with a solid shot of securing Champions League football.
After beating Aston Villa last time out, the north Londoners moved to within just three points of 4th-placed Chelsea.
But with things so tight in the race for European football, Spurs really can’t afford to drop any points against a pretty poor Newcastle side.
As for Newcastle, the Magpies are currently on a dismal run of form, which has seen them sucked firmly into a relegation battle.
At present, they sit just two points above the drop zone, though they do have a game in hand on 18th-placed Fulham.
But given the tough end-of-season run-in the North East outfit face – which includes clashes with Arsenal, Liverpool, Leicester and Manchester City – Newcastle are very much in danger of being relegated this term.
Steve Bruce on Saint-Maximin & Wilson
Ahead of Sunday’s tie, Steve Bruce held his latest press conference on Friday.
During the presser, Bruce provided updates on a number of his players.
And it does look as though Allan Saint-Maximin could be back in content for Newcastle, though Callum Wilson’s involvement looks less likely:
“He could be involved. We still have today and tomorrow to train but he came through a big session 48 hours ago. We hope he can play some part. I wouldn’t have thought Callum will be available.”
