Match facts

  • This will be a repeat of Newcastle’s last Premier League game in May 2016 – when they thrashed Spurs 5-1 at St James’ Park.
  • There have been 14 goals scored in the last three Premier League meetings between these two clubs at St James’ Park.
  • The Magpies have won only one opening match across their last nine league seasons, but that came against Spurs; 2-1 in 2012 (D4 L4).
  • Rafa Benitez has not lost any of his previous eight Premier League home games as a manager against Spurs (W5 D3 L0).
  • Newcastle striker Dwight Gayle averaged a goal every 93 minutes in the Championship last season, scoring 23 goals.
  • This is the seventh successive Premier League season that Tottenham will play their opening Premier League game away from home.
  • Harry Kane is one goal away from a century for Spurs in all competitions – he has netted 99 goals in 165 games so far, including hat-tricks in his two previous appearances.
  • Kane has scored 20 goals in his last 15 Premier League games against newly promoted sides – three of his six top-flight hat-tricks have been against newly promoted teams (Leicester in 2014-15, Bournemouth in 2015-16 and Hull last season).
  • Christian Eriksen was involved in the build up sequence to 253 open play shots last season in the Premier League; more than any other player in the competition.


Spurs have solidity in defence and a brilliant attack. Those two things will give them a hard-fought but comfortable win in the northeast.
