STAR PREVIEW Newcastle v Tottenham

first_img[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hen Newcastle last met Spurs in December they were on the end of a 4-0 battering in the Capital One Cup and given current form it’s hard to see the Magpies getting any joy out of today’s game at St James’ Park.Newcastle are on a wretched run of form with five consecutive defeats putting pressure on manager John Carver and the attendance will be interesting – given the talk of a supporters boycott !! Only QPR have a worse form record since the turn of the year.Newcastle will be re-united with captain Fabricio Coloccini after suspension but Moussa Sissoko and Papiss Cisse are still banned.Siem de Jong could be involved for the first time since he suffered a collapsed lung in August.Spurs will assess Hugo Lloris and Kyle Walker, who are nursing knee and foot problems respectively whilst Jan Vertonghen will also be monitored following an illness.Spurs might well be able to take all three points here – it’s not usually a fixture that ends up all-square. There have only been three draws in the last 35 league matches between the sides.Newcastle United v Tottenham HotspurPremier League4pm SKYHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Dec 2014 Capital One Cup Tottenham 4-0 NewcastleOct 2014 Premier Tottenham 1-2 NewcastleFeb 2014 Premier Newcastle 0-4 TottenhamNov 2013 Premier Tottenham 0-1 NewcastleFeb 2013 Premier Tottenham 2-1 NewcastleAug 2012 Premier Newcastle 2-1 TottenhamFeb 2012 Premier Tottenham 5-0 NewcastleOct 2011 Premier Newcastle 2-2 TottenhamJan 2011 Premier Newcastle 1-1 TottenhamDec 2010 Premier Tottenham 2-0 NewcastleSpurs at 5/4 with Star Sports looks the call.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)BACK SPURS for 8 points at around 5/4 with Star SportsRETURN SINCE START OF WORLD CUP: PROFIT 58.31 POINTSWhat’s your view?
