Match Date: 12 February 2014 (local time)
Venue: St. James’ Park

Team Form

Newcastle United

Suffering their second consecutive defeat, the Magpies are up to another major challenge as they try to score a victory against Tottenham.

 

Newcastle United just came off from a devastating loss against the newly hailed league leader, Chelsea. Eden Hazard fired a hat-trick that left the Magpies helpless throughout the match. It also resulted to a poor form, which could readily compromise their bid for a stronger finish this season.

 

Stagnant in the 8th spot of the table, Newcastle United has lost four (4) of its last six encounters. Moreover, they were also unable to score in six (6) of their last seven (7) matches. Unless improved, there is no doubt that such performance makes them an easy prey to Tottenham.

A slow start, which eventually ended into a sure victory, propelled Tim Sherwood’s camp to the 5th spot of the Premier League table. With the said triumph, the club earned the rights to participate in next season’s European competition. But since it is still a long way to go before the season ends, the club still, needs to be more consistent or what they might easily lose what they have right now.

 

It was already past the half-time when Tottenham scored and really, the goal was an impressive display of Kyle Walker and Emmanuel Adebayor’s wit, speed and pitch technique. With the said match result, the club currently sports a four (4) wins, a loss and a draw in their last six (6) encounters.

 

Pitted against Newcastle United, the club immediately gets the upper-hand. Tottenham maintains a strong away form. To note, they have been successful in their last six (6) away matches and evidently, this is one of their key strengths when they travel to St. James’ park.

 

Prediction: Tottenham

With the European competition at stake, it is less likely for Tim Sherwood to put the club’s future in a compromising situation. However, knowing Newcastle United’s strength, it is also less likely for the hosts to wave the white flag easily.
