The Toon Army may be safe, but the majority of the players are still effectively playing for a future with the club under the new regime. The idea that they will fizzle out seems unlikely.
Tottenham are expected to improve their top four claims on Sunday afternoon, but it could just be a banana skin. Newcastle are 6/4 in the ‘double chance market with BetFair, in other words, to avoid defeat.
This was something that Eddie Howe’s boys did nine times in a row in league matches between 27th December to 10th March. Had the last two matches ended after 88 minutes, that run would now stand at 11 games.
Spurs are on good form, but this should tell them what a tough game they have in store. In truth a brief history lesson would tell them the same thing; they have only beaten the Magpies twice in their last seven attempts at home.
Conte wasn’t there for any of those, but true consistency is something that has still alluded the North Londoners to this point under the Italian.
