Newcastle United will host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, hoping to begin the new era at St. James’ Park on a positive note.

Presently, they are winless and find themselves second from bottom in the Premier League table.

Tottenham, on the other hand sit eighth in the table, nine points clear of Newcastle and two points outside the top four.

Newcastle have yet to win a single game this season, recording three draws and four losses in their opening seven league games.

They also hold the record of the joint-worst defensive record, having conceded 16 goals this season (averaging 2.3 goals per game).

When you look at the bigger picture, Newcastle have only managed to win one of their previous nine matches in all competitions.

Allan Saint-Maximin has been a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy campaign for Newcastle, notching two goals and three assists in eight appearances across all competitions.

However, they lost their next three league outings – conceding three goals against Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal while scoring just once.

However, Tottenham returned to winning ways before the international break, beating Aston Villa 2-1 on home soil.

Nuno Espirito Santos’ men have netted just six goals in seven league games this season, meaning only five teams have scored fewer goals.

Their poor offensive record is partially down to the struggles of Harry Kane, who has yet to score any Premier League goal this season.

Tottenham have lost just one of their previous eight meetings with Newcastle across all competitions.

Remarkably, Tottenham have scored at least one goal on each of their last 16 visits to St. James’ Park – meaning a clean sheet is unlikely for the hosts on Sunday.

Although Newcastle will be eager to kick-start their new era on a high, Tottenham should have enough firepower to get the better of the hosts.
