Tottenham Hotspur will be aiming to kick off their 2018-19 Premier League campaign with victory over Newcastle United this afternoon.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will take on Newcastle away from home at St. James’ Park in the league in around an hour’s time.
Spurs are aiming to challenge for the Premier League title this season, and it is imperative that the North London outfit pick up all three points this afternoon.
Newcastle fought for survival for much of last season, and one suspects that Rafael Benitez’s side will be battling against relegation this campaign as well.
The Magpies will be confident of producing a good performance against Tottenham, as they have home advantage.
Although Tottenham have the better team, Newcastle will fancy their chances of winning this afternoon.
This is how Newcastle and Tottenham will line up for the Premier League game at St. James’ Park this afternoon:
Meanwhile, Tottenham manager Pochettino has said that star striker Harry Kane is disappointed that he could not score more goals for England at the 2018 World Cup in Russia earlier this summer.
Pochettino told The Mirror: “We have the Golden Boot winner too in Harry, who is so disappointed because he says to me I should have scored more goals. But you know it’s good.”
