Newcastle United fans have their say ahead of Tottenham clash

Newcastle United face Tottenham Hotspur at St James’ Park on Sunday as they look to make a positive return to the Premier League in front of a sell-out crowd.

The Magpies made an immediate return to the English top flight after winning the Championship title last season, and they will be keen to avoid being in a relegation battle as they were in the 2015/16 campaign.

They face a tough task to get off to a positive start against Spurs though, who have finished in third and second respectively in the previous two seasons with the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli establishing themselves as two of the best players in the division.

Newcastle supporters were quick to give their thoughts ahead of the match and while some are “confident” and “optimistic” that their team will get a result, others would be “over the moon” if they could secure a draw against Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
