Tottenham vs Newcastle UnitedEnglish Premier League, KO: 14:00 Sep 27, 2020, Tottenham Stadium
AFTER starting the season with a home loss to Everton, Spurs are now seeking a fourth straight win when Newcastle come calling on Sunday.
A Thursday night trek to North Macedonia – where Shkendija were dispatched 3-1 in Europa League qualifying with Son again on target – is hardly ideal preparation for the visit of a Magpies side who won this fixture 1-0 last season.
That was during the final months of the Mauricio Pochettino reign, with his successor Mourinho still having much to prove.
Newcastle, meanwhile, eased to a 7-0 League Cup victory at Morecombe on Wednesday night and are now seeking to return to winning ways in the top flight following last weekend's shocker at home to Brighton.
The Magpies were two goals down after just seven minutes, eventually losing 3-0 and failing to register a shot on target in a horror show they need to put behind them quickly.
How do the bookies view it?
Despite their mini winning streak, Spurs' defence has looked creaky. They have yet to keep a clean sheet this season, and Newcastle will look to exploit that vulnerability.
Steve Bruce's team are arguably more of a threat away from home, where the likes of lightning-quick wideman Allan Saint-Maximin have more freedom to roam, and both teams to net is backable at 19-20 with bet365.
At the other end of the pitch, Son is the man of the moment for Spurs. The South Korea forward has netted half of Tottenham's 10 goals this term after averaging just shy of one every two games – 18 in 41 appearances – last season.
He can continue his hot streak by tormenting the Toon, with the 28-year-old 6-4 at bet365 to net for the third game running.
