As was the case last Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur comes into a match that is scheduled to be the first of four in eight days (and second of five in 11 days). It bears repeating because this level of fixture congestion is absolutely ridiculous, even with last Tuesday’s League Cup contest canceled. Nevertheless, Spurs march onward.
This weekend brings the squad back home for a Premier League match against Newcastle United. Both sides sit on three points, with the visitors defeating West Ham before losing to Brighton. The Magpies have been busy in the League Cup as well, winning a couple ties to advance to the Fourth Round.
The two sides met in the third matchweek of last season as well, with Spurs disappointingly falling 0-1 at home in what may have been the beginning of the end for Mauricio Pochettino. In contrast, the return fixture was one of Tottenham’s better results after the restart, with Heung-Min Son opening the scoring before a Harry Kane brace to seal the 1-3 win.
Spurs will likely need to rely on these two yet again, as they have combined for seven goals and five assets over the last week. Both Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon are not yet ready to join the side, so the current squad must to fight through another match during this busy stretch.

Match thread rules
The match thread rules are the same as always. To any visitors coming here for the first time, welcome! We’re glad you’re here! Wipe your feet, mind the gap, and be sure to check out the other pages at this outstanding site. While you’re here, though, we have a few rules and regulations:
- Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They’re bad and they get us in trouble. Violators will be warned or banned.
- We have rules against “relentless negativity.” Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. Don’t knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you’re frustrated.
- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is also not allowed. It’s fine to say “wow, that was a really bad call,” but it’s NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. This is a community of fans, not an unmoderated message board.
- Finally, while we don’t have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Also, language that is sexist, racist, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
Have fun, and COYS!
