Lord Sugar not worried about Tottenham Hotspur's match against Newcastle United

Newcastle United are set to play Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Lord Sugar has claimed that Newcastle United will not be so lucky when they travel to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham Hotspur next weekend.

Newcastle beat Liverpool 2-0 yesterday, but it seems that Lord Sugar is not too worried about his side facing the Magpies next weekend.

Tottenham have been in fine form since the season started, and they are now unbeaten in their last 14 matches.

The Lilywhites’ impressive run of results has increased the talk of their potential to break into the top-four, meaning the pressure will be on them on Sunday.

Tottenham simply have to win matches against struggling sides if they are to break into the Champions League qualification spaces. Mauricio Pochettino’s side are currently three points outside the top-four.

Newcastle, on the other hand, have made a woeful start to the campaign, and they are still in the relegation zone.

However, after beating Liverpool their confidence should be slightly higher, and they will be looking to cause an upset against Spurs.

If the Magpies can win at White Hart Lane they could move out of trouble, and that would help them take a major step towards safety.
