Head to head records: Away v Tottenham

Another big test awaits the Toon as they make their way to Wembley for only the second time since it reopened in 2007.

It has been an excellent week for the club and one that might just equip us with enough resources to stay in the Premier League for another season. Gaining three points in a game that was a write-off was incredible on Tuesday night against Man City. A match which, for me personally, was one of the greatest nights of being a Newcastle fan. That match was up there with 5-1 v Sunderland (October 2010) , 3-0 v Man United (January 2012) and 1-0 v Anzhi (March 2013) to name a few. In addition, our transfer record has finally been broken in fighting off competition to sign Miguel Almiron.

With regards to Saturday lunchtime's fixture, there has not been a draw in any match between the two sides since October 2011 when Demba Ba and Shola Ameobi scored second half equalisers to gain a hard-fought draw to maintain our unbeaten league form.

Before Tottenham left their home of White Hart Lane in 2017, we held a good record in winning our previous three matches. Unfortunately, Tottenham are continuing delaying their move into the renovated White Hart Lane.

Going into Saturday's game, good news for the Magpies is that Harry Kane injured, Son Heung-Min, despite scoring last time out against Watford, will be fatigued after his time with South Korea at the Asia Cup and Dele Alli is a doubt. Fernando Llorente, coming into replace the absentees, has been misfiring despite scoring the winner in midweek.

Memory Lane

Tottenham 1 - 2 Newcastle United (13/12/2015 - Premier League)

It was a difficult start to the 2015/16 season under new manager, Steve McClaren but the recovering wheels were set in motion the previous week. A win at home to Liverpool the week before meant that we went into the match at White Hart Lane in 18th place but just two points off previous season winners, Chelsea.
