Two Premier League sides Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur will go head to head on Wednesday in Melbourne in what will be a friendly encounter.

Newcastle United had a difficult spell towards the end of their 2023-24 league campaign, but they ended it on a high. The Magpies beat Brentford in their final game 4-2 at the Gtech Community Stadium to give hope for European football. Eddie Howe’s side will qualify for the Europa Conference League if Man City beat city-rivals Manchester United in this weekend’s FA Cup final.

Tottenham Hotspur ended their campaign with two wins from their final three games, but that’s not good compared to how they started the season. The Lilly Whites’ final game of the season saw them travel to already relegated Sheffield United. Ange Postecoglou’s clinched a spot in the Europa League next season with a cruising 3-0 win and will hope to build on that this week.

Betting Tips Newcastle United vs Tottenham Hotspur: Tottenham to win & Over 2.5 goals

The lengthy injury list of Newcastle United makes their defence all the more vulnerable to Spurs' penchant for goals, and Ange Postecoglou has seen his side score in 13 of the last 17 fixtures.

The Magpies should never be counted out on the attacking front, especially as Spurs shipped two or more goals in five of their last seven games, but I am still backing Postecoglou's side to prevail in what will be a very entertaining encounter.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals

Newcastle United team news

Alexander Isak was Newcastle United’s main source of goals last season, with the Swedish international finding the back of the net 21 times in just 30 league appearances.

Bruno Guimarães featured in the Premier League 37 times - more than any other Newcastle player, and made 15 goals contributions.

With Eddie Howe expected to make changes to his starting eleven, the likes of Isak, Bruno, Jacob Murphy and Harvey Barnes are unlikely to play any part in Wednesday’s game.

On the injury front, Tottenham will be without the services of Matt Targett, Sven Botman, Jamaal Lascelles, Tino Livramento and Anthony Gordon.

Tottenham Hotspur team news

Guglielmo Vicario featured in all Tottenham Hotspurs’ 38 league games last season, and the Italian could retain his place between the sticks.

In Spurs’ first season since the departure of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min led the line well, finding the back of the net 17 times and registered 10 assists.

Manor Solomon, Ryan Sessegnon, Fraser Forster, Destiny Udogie, Timo Werner, Ben Davies, Richarlison and Yves Bissouma are all expected to miss out due to injuries.
