The Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern tonight are excitedly discussing the season ahead and despite the lack of new faces, reckon they should dispose of Newcastle fairly easily.
Tottenham will be kicking off their Premier League season up north against Newcastle at St. James’ Park this Sunday and after coming second behind Chelsea last time out, they will want to go one better this season.
Being the away side on Tyneside is never easy, so Spurs will have their work cut out for them on the opening day.
There is no doubt that Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be pushing for the league title come the end of the season so a positive start and three points will be an absolute must for Spurs, anything other than that could derail any belief the players and the fans have.
At times, Tottenham’s midfield doesn’t get enough credit, with their attacking players stealing the show week in and week out it seems easy to forget those in the middle of the park.
On that note, here is the midfield duo that Pochettino must start for Spurs against Newcastle.
