Tottenham Hotspur take on Newcastle United in their next Premier League outing and they will be looking to bounce back from the disappointing defeat against West Ham United.

The North London outfit have been quite disappointing in the last few league games and they are coming into this game on the back of a 2-1 defeat against West Ham.

However, popular pundit Paul Merson believes that Tottenham have the quality to edge the contest against Newcastle. Merson believes that Newcastle will be focused on their Champions League clash against AC Milan and the Magpies will want to secure their place in the knockout rounds of the competition.

“Much like the previous game, this is a hard one to call as it depends on what happens between West Ham and Tottenham. That said, I just have a feeling Ange Postecoglou’s side will nick this one,” he wrote.

“Newcastle have been outstanding so far, but most of their players are playing out of their skins, so I think things will catch up with them sooner or later. The Magpies have a UEFA Champions League clash against AC Milan coming up too, so they’ll have one eye on that game as they are still in with a chance of making it through to the knockout stages.

“They don’t have their destiny in their own hands, so they’ll have to secure a win against the Serie A giants and hope Borussia Dortmund do them a favor against Paris Saint-Germain, so it’ll be an interesting one to keep an eye out for.

“Spurs are on a bit of a bad run, but something tells me they’ll show up and record a narrow 2-1 win.”

It remains to be seen whether Tottenham can get back to winning ways once again. The North London giants started the season in impressive form, but they have been quite mediocre in the recent outings.

They are going through an injury crisis and that has contributed to their decline. Tottenham fans will certainly hope that the players can step up and deliver here.

It remains to be seen how the situation develops.
