Tottenham Hotspur look to maintain their momentum at Newcastle United after claiming bragging rights from the north London derby against Arsenal.

Top four and entry into next season’s Champions League looks beyond Jose Mourinho’s side now, after Manchester City successfully overturned their ban at Cas.

But a Europa League place is within reach, with Sheffield United just two points ahead in seventh.

The Magpies meanwhile have much less to play for, with safety assured and European football beyond them, though a defeat to struggling Watford last time out should provide ammunition for Steve Bruce to demand a reaction here.

Here is our prediction for the game at St James’ Park.

What are the odds?

Newcastle – 18/5

Draw – 14/5

Spurs – 3/4

Prediction

Spurs have a heap of injuries and should Serge Aurier also be unavailable then Jose Mourinho faces a dilemma over his selection here. But Newcastle appear to be struggling for motivation having already secured their place in next season’s Premier League. Spurs are still searching for qualification for the Europa League, while the remaining games will certainly prove beneficial to Mourinho in the early stages of his rebuild. With the defence tightening up of late and the exciting potential of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in tandem, an away win looks on the cards here. 0-2.
