Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez met the press earlier today ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League opener against Tottenham Hotspur.
Newcastle fans were left like their Spurs counterparts, disappointed at the lack of transfer activity before yesterday’s transfer deadline, with the Magpies boss claiming that his side are fighting against relegation this season.
Newcastle have lost their last two league meetings with Tottenham, failing to score in both those games; they last lost three in a row against the Lilywhites in December 2005 (four consecutive defeats, all without scoring).
At St James’ Park, Newcastle have lost three of their last four league clashes with Spurs, which is a good omen for us ahead of the game.
Spurs have only failed to score in one of their last 25 Premier League meetings with Newcastle – a 0-1 home defeat in November 2013.
