Newcastle put in possibly their worst performance of the season against Aston Villa last time out. After surviving a scare in the opening minute, when Ollie Watkins hit the post, they fell behind to a Jacob Ramsey strike after 11 minutes and never looked like getting back in the game. Ollie Watkins added two more after the break to consign Eddie Howe’s men to a deserved defeat. Miguel Almiron returned to action as a substitute following a spell out through injury and his flair will be needed in the coming weeks.
Tottenham took an early lead through Son Heung-Min after 14 minutes vs Bournemouth. Arnaut Danjuma netted what they thought was a late equalizer in the 88th minute after Bournemouth had gone 1-2 up through Vina and Solanke. After Richalison missed a chance to take all three points for Spurs in the closing minutes Dango Ouattara struck at the other end to hand the Cherries the win.
Tottenham has been inconsistent all season but has held onto fifth place with vital wins at the right time. Neither side will want to concede ground to the other here and that could result in a nervy, tight affair. A draw seems to be where the sensible money goes in this one.
