NEW vs TOT Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Tottenham manage to spark fresh life into their aspirations of making it into next season’s Europa League
Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Arsenal in the London derby was perhaps the most perfect way to document the kind of season the club has endured this season. After being held to a drab and lacklustre 0-0 draw with Bournemouth, few gave the club a chance against an Arsenal side on the uptick.
And after going down 1-0 to a rival they have hated since the onset of the Premier League, it looked as if Tottenham’s worst fears were finally going to be brought to fruition on the day. They were outclassed, outplayed and outshone by Arsenal in every aspect of the game, a tie which should have seen Tottenham left disgruntled at the end of the day.
However, the club manage to pull off an icnredile heist with Alderweireld sending a thumping header in the culminating stages of the tie to hand over a crucial 2-1 win to Tottenham on the day. While the result might have been an unwarranted and undeserved one for Tottenham, the side will hardly care with the team managing to once again throw itself into the reckoning for a spot in the top 6.
Where Tottenham managed to pull off a win the last time around, Newcastle United’s slump further deepened with the side’s crisis now leaving them with a sole win in their last five encounters. The team has lacked interested after having assured themselves of safety with the side being defeated 2-1 by relegation slumped Watford the last time around.
While that result was a hard one to digest for Newcastle United, we do envision them putting on a reasonably improved performance come Tottenham. They’ll carve out Tottenham on occasions but unfortunately be let down by their defensive vulnerabilities with the visiting side managing to scram its way to the three points but the one goal.

NEW vs TOT Dream11 Picks
Its in matches like these that Newcastle United real shine especially in the solace of their home comfort. And a reason they have managed to put on some well worded results against higher placed sides is due to the astounding Martin Dubravka, a player who has grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck to send side’s scurrying when trying to score against him.
Whilst a cleansheet looks extremely unlikely for either side given their ability to go to sleep on occasions and allow oppositions to sully them, if there’s any team capable of rummaging its way through to a shut down today, its Tottenham. The side is capable of becoming a mean and stern backline when functioning as a unit to see us opt for a trio of names from the side for this one.
We begin with CB Toby Alderweireld after he scored his side’s winning goal against Arsenal to apprise us of his penchant for scoring goals. Ben Davies comes in alongside him owing to his affinity to keep galloping down the park and involving himself in the side’s attacking soirees with pinch perfect crosses and passes.
Davidson Sanchez joins up the two to see us paint out this docket entirely in the visiting team’s colors.
Giovanni Lo Celso once again played a crucial role for Tottenham the last time around. At a time when the side’s midfield has clearly lacked inspiration, the newly acquired player has shown why the club went out to avail his services as he made life treacherous for Arsenal on the day.
Harry Winks joins up with him for the forthcoming tie while Newcastle United will see us opt for Allan Saint-Maxim. The player was the club’s most improved since the restart and now back after recovering from his injury, he’ll be looking to utilise the speed he has to burn to add to his four assists.
The side’s top scorer, Jonjo Shelvey joins up with the player having accumulated the 6 goals this season for the club with four goal man Miguel Almiron keeping him company.
Harry Kane might have gone two matches without a goal but that doesn’t deter us from including him in our side for the impending tie. He has scored on 13 occasions to sit atop of the goal scoring ranks of the club, a number which shows how he continues to spearhead his side’s attacking sortie.
After a goal and assist against Arsenal, Son Heung-Min with the 10 goals and 10 assists will come in as his partner.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 13 goals will see us opt for Kane as our side’s captain while Son is our vice-captain.
