Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has shared his prediction ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League fixture against Newcastle United which takes place tomorrow afternoon.

Last time out, Owen incorrectly predicted that Antonio Conte’s side would be held to a 1-1 draw by rivals West Ham United when in fact it ended up as a 3-1 victory in Tottenham’s favour.

Tottenham return to Premier League action following the international break looking to push for a top four finish in the table and need to keep the pressure on Arsenal who are currently three points ahead with a game in hand.

The north Londoners have not picked up any fresh injury concerns following the break with Japhet Tanganga having already been ruled out for the rest of the season while Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon are both nearing a return.

Owen believes that Spurs will take a much-needed three points against his former side having looked deadly in front of goal thanks to Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.

He told BetVictor: “Tottenham have won four out of five in the league, with their only defeat coming at Old Trafford. They’ve looked a real threat going forward, with Son and Kane being in superb form. They still have a chance of finishing in the top four.

“Newcastle have lost their last two, both 1-0. They’re almost safe, but still need another win or two to guarantee it.

“I fancy Spurs here. Their recent form has been good, and I think they’ll edge this 2-1.”

Nothing less than three points will do for Spurs if they are to keep the momentum on Arsenal if the club want to play Champions League football next season.

Spurs’ record against Newcastle at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium having been held to a draw last season and the year previous were undone by Joelinton.
