Newcastle United hosts Tottenham in round 8 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Sunday, October 17th at St. James' Park (Newcastle)
Mike Ashley owned Newcastle United for 14 years. The businessman has long put his brainchild for sale. A year ago, he didn’t manage to reach an agreement on the sale of the club to representatives of Saudi Arabia. But it did happen at the beginning of October 2021. The Saudi Arabian Sovereign Fund bought 100% of the Magpies’ shares for 300 million pounds. Now the Black-and-Whites are a very rich club. The new owners have already announced their goals - to win the English Premier League and achieve success in European cups. If there are top transfers, everything is possible in the long term, but now things are not going well. Newcastle hasn’t gained a single victory in the current championship, conceded 16 goals, and fell in the relegation zone. Head coach Steve Bruce has already begun to worry about his work, because bosses usually change the coaching staff after the arrival of new owners.

While Newcastle will change a head coach in the near future, Tottenham Hotspur underwent changes this summer. Jose Mourinho has failed at the helm of the Spurs. The Portuguese was replaced by the ex-manager of Wolverhampton Nuno Espirito Santo. The result is always worth evaluating at a distance. The start to the 2021/2022 season was great. The Lilywhites won three starting rounds with a total score of 3-0. As soon as Santo received the Manager of the Month award, things went downhill. Three defeats in a row threw Tottenham to the 8th place in the Premier League standings. And only the last round brought a home victory over Aston Villa (2-1).
Both teams are now not in the best condition and concede a lot of goals. Both those and others want to earn points to improve their position in the standings. Newcastle is motivated to leave the relegation zone, and Tottenham is aiming to get into the European Cup zone. In the current season of the Premier League, both teams played four out of seven games (57%) with three or more goals scored. In the previous round, the Magpies lost to the unstable and weakened Wolverhampton (1-2), and the Spurs defeated Aston Villa with the same score. We expect at least three goals in the upcoming game either.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.25 goals scored
