Newcastle United take on the visitors Tottenham Hotspur at the St James` Park in the 1st tour of the Premier League. The match will be played in Newcastle upon Tyne on Saturday, August 11th.
Even though Newcastle United have sold their key players Mitrovic and Moreno this summer they have bought Swiss defender Schar from Derportivo and have loaned Brazilian winger Kenedy from Chelsea instead them. The team has also been enhanced with Ki Sung-yueng who was playing for Swansea City before. Last season Newcastle United looked very good in the defense on their home field. In 19 matches in front of their home crowd the Magpies conceded only 17 goals. They placed 10th in the table last season in the end.

Tottenham Hotspur have saved all their key players in the squad this summer and also they haven`t done a single transfer In the off-season. For example their midfielder Mousa Dembele has refused to go to Inter Milan. The Spurs have had three International Champions Cup fixtures before the start of the Premier League, they beat Milan and Roma and lost to Barcelona there. Pretty soon Tottenham Hotspur will start in the UEFA Champions League so they are likely to be in their peak shape only for those games. Now the team is only on their way to achieving the teamwork. For example the leader of the team Harry Kane who has become the best goal scorer of the World Cup this year didn`t play a single match in the International Champions Cup.
Newcastle United are able to play safe in the defense in front of their home crowd. It is likely that the team will not beat Tottenham Hotspur but they will not concede a lot of goals for sure. Furthermore the Lilywhites have not reached their peak shape yet. Nobody knows what shape is their best goal scorer Harry Kane in so the match will probably have only a few goals scored. However, the team from London is a lot more classy than their opponents in the upcoming fixture and they should not lose. Last season Tottenham Hotspur beat Newcastle United in both matches between them (1-0, 2-0).
Prediction for the match: Tottenham Hotspur to win and under 3.5 goal scored.
