Confirmed Newcastle lineup for final Premier League game, Keys predicts outcome

Newcastle United will play their final Premier League game this afternoon.

Newcastle United will be looking to end their season on a positive note when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at St. James’ Park in the Premier League this afternoon.

The Magpies have already been relegated from the Premier League and will play in the Championship next season.

It has been a hugely disappointing season for the Magpies, and the players will be determined to give the fans something to cheer about on the final day.

While Newcastle have nothing but pride to play for, Tottenham are still not guaranteed of the second spot in the Premier League table.

The North London outfit need just a draw from the match at St. James’ Park this afternoon in order to finish second behind champions Leicester City.

Tottenham will head into the match against Newcastle as favourites, but they must not get complacent.

An early goal for Rafael Benitez’s side could make it very tricky for Spus to stage a comeback.

Meanwhile, well-known sports presenter Richard Keys has backed Newcastle to pick up a point from today’s match.

Spurs have run their race and I’m not sure anybody there, apart from the fans, is that worried about finishing above Arsenal,” Keys told "1-1.”
