Newcastle – Tottenham is the first game of the day from the Premier League and it’s the second match of the new season. We have one of the best teams from last year facing Newcastle, a team that ended on the 10th position last season. The game will start at 13:30 and it will take place on St. James Park in Newcastle, England.
Newcastle had a really good season after the promotion to Premier League. They ended the season on the 10th place with only 3 positions behind the European Cups. Now they need to do the same job and the main goal in my opinion will be to stay in the Premier League for the next season as well. If everything goes all right they could go into the European Cups just like Burnley did last year. It was a busy summer for them on the transfer market and they made a lots of moves. They sold 11 players and bought 7 but overall they did a really good job. Now they will need to face a team that wants to win the Premier League and have good results in the Champions League as well.
Newcastle: Dubravka – Dummet – Clark – Lascelles – Yedlin – Kenedy – Shelvey – Diame – Ritchie – Perez – Rondon
Tottenham had a really good pre-season at the International Champions Cup where they ended on the first position. They won two games against AC Milan and AS Roma and lost the game at penalties against Barcelona. They have the same squad as they did last year and things are looking more promising this year. With no incoming players they have a really solid team and hopefully they could make an impact in the Champions League. They have a lots of missing players due to fatigue and injuries but they should be just fine in this first game of the season.
Tottenham: Vorm – Davies – Sanchez – Aurier – Walker-Peters – Dembele – Dier – Heung-Min – Eriksen – Moura – LIorente

Newcastle – Tottenham: Prediction
It’s obvious that Tottenham have the first chance to take all three points home. With a new season coming up you always want to start with a win and this is how it should be for the visitors. Christian Eriksen, the star of the team will be in the starting 11 and I expect a goal from him as well. He did an excellent job with Denmark at the World Cup and now he is back with Tottenham to win a trophy this year. Tottenham won the last two encounters with Newcastle keeping a clean sheet as well. This shouldn’t be different and we have a really good odd to take advantage of for this game.
Prediction: Tottenham to win, Odds: 2.10
