These two fantastic teams go head to head from 5.30pm on Saturday evening and it should be a cracker.
You would imagine they will be competing for a similar position in the league too, so this isn’t just about picking up a win to begin the season, it is about taking points of a team that is likely to be a close rival for the majority of the campaign.
This is partly dependant on Newcastle living up to their achievements of last season. Alan Pardew’s men performed above all expectations to finish 5th in the table and now the challenge is to repeat this success.

They will be confident of doing so of course, they have a talented squad including the impressive attacking duo of Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse. Then, they have added a couple of new faces with the ability to hold onto their best players a significant factor too.
As for Tottenham, they are one of a number of clubs with a new manager at the start of this Premier League season. Andre Villas-Boas is in place and he will be hoping for some positive results in the opening few weeks, something he failed to do with Chelsea last season.
It is fair to say that the Spurs fans are excited about their new manager and the stylish approach he has to management. If you thought Tottenham were a good team to watch last year, this could step up another notch over the next few months.
The signings of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Jan Vertonghen are good ones and overall, Spurs look very well set up for the new campaign with the target to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League.
When these two teams met in this fixture last season, it ended in an entertaining 2-2 draw and this should be another entertaining contest between two top teams.
