Overall, Spurs have won this fixture more times than Newcastle, however in recent years it’s been a bit more of evenly balanced affair with 5 wins each each team from the last 10 matches.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men won both fixtures against Newcastle in last seasons Premier League, however Newcastle won both of the previous season’s fixtures.
Rafael Benitez's Newcastle team didn’t have a great season last year, only finishing in 10th place having won just 12 of the 38 games that they played.
While Newcastle have home advantage, Benitez faces a tough start to the new Premier League season as they'll also be playing Chelsea and Man City in their first 4 games.
Benitez has a pretty solid squad to choose from for the Spurs fixture, and there haven’t been too many changes to the Newcastle line up during the summer transfer window.
Martin Dubravka has joined from Sparta Prague, and Kenedy is back on loan from Chelsea for another season, while Stuart Findlay, Mikel Marino and defenders Massadio Haidara and Chancel Mbemba have all moved on.
There are some talented players in the Newcastle squad, but tough opening games against the top teams in the Premier League could mean a slow start and low points tally is on the cards.
Spurs, who ended last season in 3rd place, having only lost 7 of their 38 games, are by far the much stronger side heading into Saturday afternoon's match.
Mauricio Pochettino has some excellent players in the Spurs squad, and they have the potential to challenge the top teams in this season’s race for the Premier League title.
Harry Kane was brilliant in the World Cup, scoring 6 goals in 6 games, and Spurs fans will be hoping he can keep his scoring run going during the new Premier League season.
Spurs are probably one of the only teams that have had a notable lack of transfer activity, with Keanan Bennetts and Anton Walkes leaving, but no new players as of the time of writing.
In saying that, Spurs were great last season, and if Pochettino focuses on improving their accuracy in converting crosses from open play, Spurs should be up there again this season.
Spurs look like the winning team coming into this fixture, and it’s understandable to see why bookmakers offer them as the favourites, however Newcastle shouldn’t be underestimated, especially as they have a home advantage.
