Newcastle United have just won a victory over Manchester City, a surprising and unexpected victory. However, that victory did not mean anything to the Maghpies, because of the fact that they are currently ranked 14th in the English Premier League standings. Moreover, in the next match Rafael Benitez’s squad will face an equally strong opponent Tottenham Hotspur. The match itself is planned to take place on Saturday night, February 2, 2019 at Wembley Stadium, London.
Playing as a host, of course Tottenham Hotspur will be more favored to win in the match later. Moreover, overall in this season, Mauricio Pochettino’s landing squad performed much better than Newcastle United. In recent weeks, Tottenham won a series of disappointing results.
