Tottenham are a Team on Form

It is hard to fathom given the heartbreak we all suffered just a few weeks ago, however, Tottenham – along with Manchester City – is the hottest team in the Premier League. Coming into this weekend only two teams had won four of their last five matches. While the hurt and pain of losing to Arsenal still sting, it is the only time Tottenham has dropped points in their last five matches.

Coming off back-to-back losses to City and West Ham, winning four of five matches in League is the response we were looking for from the team. More importantly, it is a response that has put the Spurs in a position to get back into the Champions League discussion much sooner than expected.

Newcastle has been struggling of late

While Tottenham is in form, Newcastle certainly is not. Whereas the Lilywhites have only dropped three points in their last five matches, the Magpies have only taken three points in their last five games. So poor has been the form of Newcastle, they have only won two matches all of 2021 and did not win once in the month of March.

Newcastle’s last win was February 6 in a 3-2 win over Southampton at St. James Park. Despite not winning in some time, Newcastle has some big scalps this season. The Magpies actually swept Everton this season and beat West Ham to open the campaign. The point is, despite poor form, if Tottenham does not come to win, Newcastle can take the points.
