NEW Vs TOT Dream11 Team Predictions: The Sportsrush discussed its Dream 11 picks, as Tottenham Hotspurs faces Newcastle United.
Newcastle United are about to face Tottenham Hotspurs in the third game-week of the Premier League, with the Toons having a rough start to the season, losing both the previous two matches in the Premier League against Arsenal and Norwich City respectively.
On the other hand, Tottenham had an impressive start, and in both of the their previous matches they made comebacks. In the first game-week, they defeated Aston Villa by 3-1 after conceding early, and on the next game-week, they played a draw against Manchester City, even though they were trailing twice in the match.
Thus, the North London club will be a tough nut to crack, as Tottenham is guaranteed to take three points away from Newcastle United with this form, and since its a home game for Spurs, Newcastle United will surely have a rough ride tonight.
Amidst all this, Harry Kane has been sensational for Spurs, scoring a brace in the first match, and having an impactful presence against Pep Guardiola’s side.
Moreover, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura have filled in for Heung-Min Son and Delli Alli, as both missed their matches due to suspension and injury respectively.
There is no doubt that Tottenham are the favourites to win the tie, thus Spurs’ player will be mostly picked. With this, the Sportsrush discusses its Dream 11 picks for tonight’s match.

Hugo Lloris: Tottenham’s captain has the higher chances of maintaining a clean-sheet, as Spurs defence is capable enough to neutralize Newcastle United’s attack, moreover, Lloris is definitely the superior player in comparison to his counterpart, and hence shall be taken.
Toby Alderweireld: The Belgian International is no doubt a veteran in defence and will be a key in having an impeccable defensive record today if Spurs manages to pull a great performance. Moreover, his aerial abilities can provide us with crucial points.
Kyle Walker-Peters: The replacement to Kieran Trippier has been impressive so far, as he has started last two league matches in the Premier League. The 22-year-old right-back generally contributes in the attack, and can fetch us points from there.
Fabian Schar: The Swiss International is a great defensive lieutenant, and was the only defender who had a good game against Norwich. Despite conceding three, he was able to fetch 3.5 points in the last match and can be trusted for this match.
Matt Ritchie: The full-back will be deputed ahead as Newcastle United is playing a three-man defensive system. Hence, he will be deputed ahead and can fetch us points through the attack.

Miguel Almiron: Almiron will be heading the attack for Newcastle United, and can score if fortune decides to be with Steve Bruce’s side.
Lucas Moura: The Brazilian International was a hero for the London based club after he scored the equalizer against Manchester City in the dying minutes of the game. The player always makes an impact even if he comes off the bench as he already has 17.5 points from last two matches. Thus he is our vice-captain tonight.
