Two sides with the same fate in the two opening games of the Premier League lock horns this weekend. Tottenham will be looking to continue their form as they welcome Newcastle to the New Tottenham Stadium. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 4 pm.
After giving Jose Mourinho his first opening season loss of his lustrous career, it was only right to respond with a triumphant win. A 5-2 whopping to Southampton was enough to see the Chosen One earn his first victory of the season.
Son who was last year’s player of the season, came to action while netting four goals with assists from Captain Harry Kane. Mourinho highly praised an individual brilliance after a lackluster first half that saw Ings net his first of the season.
Gareth Bale is still a few weeks from making a debut for the North London side after a loan move from Real Madrid. Mourinho who is known for switching the roster could see a new side this weekend.
Steve Bruce started the campaign with a triumphant 2-0 victory over West Ham. The side failed to uphold the record with a 3-0 loss to Brighton with ten men. The side made a resounding comeback during the third round of the EFL Cup. An impressive 7-0 thrashing of Morecambe in the midweek fixture.
