Barclays Premier League Betting: Tottenham vs. Newcastle

Tottenham vs. Newcastle BettingSaturday’s early kick off in the Barclay’s Premier League sees an improving Newcastle side travel to White Hart Lane to face a Spurs squad who are looking to maintain their place in the top four. Both teams are in good form ahead of this contest which should prove to be one of the most entertaining games of the weekend.

Andre Villas-Boas’ Tottenham are unbeaten in nine Premiership games and have only lost once in the league since their 5-2 defeat at Arsenal in November. Even more pleasing for Spurs fans is the fact that Tottenham’s defence is one of the strongest in the division right now with just four goals conceded in their last nine.

That record will be tested on Saturday by a Newcastle line up that has been strengthened by some shrewd purchases in the January transfer window. Manager Alan Pardew has a good reputation for spotting talent across Europe and that quality is evidenced by existing squad members such as Yohan Cabaye and Papiss Cisse who have quickly become vital members of the Magpies’ squad.

 

The new hero for Newcastle fans is Moussa Sissoko who joined the club from Toulouse last month. The Frenchman’s two goals sealed a memorable victory over Chelsea last weekend and although he’s a midfielder, Sissoko could provide the biggest threat to the Tottenham defence.

Spurs have some concerns up front where Jermain Defoe looks set to miss the game after picking up an ankle injury against West Brom. That situation may leave Villas-Boas with no recognised striker although Emmanuel Adebayor could be rushed back into the side after Togo’s elimination from the African Cup of Nations.

Last season’s corresponding fixture resulted in an emphatic 5-0 win for Spurs and although the game should be closer this time, it’s set to be a thriller once again.
