Recent meetings between these two have failed to produce goals in abundance, therefore, punters can stake on this one to follow suit

Tottenham Hotspur play host to Newcastle United at Wembley Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Owing to the injury crisis rocking Tottenham’s attacking department, the goals unsurprisingly have stopped coming in their manifolds.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have lost two out of their previous three matches in all competitions – scoring just thrice in those games.

And going by the last three matches between these two sides – which have all failed to produce more than three goals, punters can stake on this game not to record more than three goals – at (1.36) odds with Bet365.

Newcastle have never scored more than three goals in all their league games this season, but they were 2-1 winners over Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City last time out. They are (8.00) odds with the same betting firm to record back-to-back wins at the end of 90 minutes.

None of Tottenham’s last 20 Premier League home games against Newcastle have ended in a draw. A rare stalemate at the blast of the full-time whistle is offered at (4.50) odds.

However, in those 20 matches, the Lilywhites triumphed 12 times. They are (1.40) odds with Bet365 to extend their dominance in this fixture with another victory on their turf.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
