#FootyFriday Preview: Newcastle vs. Tottenham

  • Written on:

This Sunday all eyes at PUMA Football HQ will be fixed on the North-East of England as Newcastle play host to Tottenham in what is sure to be an entertaining Premiership fixture! 

The Geordies, who currently occupy 4th spot have been a revelation this season and remain undefeated after an excellent start that few people outside of Tyne and Wear would have predicted. They have already picked up four wins including a famous derby day win courtesy of Ryan Taylor’s outstanding free-kick and their early success owes much to their watertight defence that has shipped just four league goals this term.

Spurs will be approaching the game fresh off the back of a tremendous derby victory of their own and will go into the match full of confidence. However, Croatian full-back Vedran Corluka faces a late fitness test for the trip North and the visitors will be hoping he recovers in time to keep a close eye on tricky Newcastle winger Peter Løvenkrands.

The sides drew 1-1 when they last met in January and with our loyalty split, we’ll be hoping for more of the same this time around!

Who are you tipping to win the battle of the PUMA teams this weekend?
