John Barnes predicts Tottenham v Newcastle

Tottenham Hotspur will face Newcastle United at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

John Barnes has predicted on that Tottenham Hotspur will win against Newcastle United this weekend.

Tottenham will face the Magpies at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Sunday evening, and former Newcastle winger Barnes has backed the North London outfit to pick up all three points with a 2-0 victory.

Spurs have been very impressive and are still unbeaten since the opening day of the season,” the former Liverpool star has written on

“Newcastle will be buoyed by their win over Liverpool, but not many teams go to White Hart Lane and win these days. 2-0 Spurs, Harry Kane with both goals.”

Tottenham are fifth in the Premier League table at the moment with 26 points from 15 matches.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are just three points behind fourth-place Manchester United and are very much in the running for a top-four finish this season.

Spurs will be favourites to win on Sunday, but Newcastle’s chances of snatching a draw cannot be discounted.

Steve McClaren’s side registered a surprise 2-0 win against Liverpool at St. James’ Park in the Premier League last weekend.

That win will have certainly boosted the players’ confidence, and they will head to North London with more self-belief.
