That should have been three points for Leeds yesterday but even I have to say, that goal taken from a free kick by James Ward-Prowse was a bit special!
The performance wasn't bad at all. Cooper was back in defensive and looked pretty solid, and in the second half we saw Kalvin Phillips return who looked like he hadn't been away as he protected the back four and pinged some amazing diagonal balls out to the flanks. Absolute quality.
If he's in the starting line-up next week, we should have no trouble taking all three points from our away game against struggling Watford.
But that's next week. What about today?
Despite a decent run of results and form, Newcastle can't afford to take their foot off the gas just yet and will really want to take something from this game which will be difficult as Spurs are just 3 points, albeit having played a game more, from Arsenal in 4th and are still going to be pushing hard for a Champions League spot.
Spurs have been let down a little by a lack of consistency and all the early season 'will he ,won't he' shenanigans about Harry Kane but with both Kane and Son firing on all four again and having taken 4 wins from the last 5, you'd have to fancy their chances to day against a Newcastle side that having won three on the bounce, have lost their last two and will be looking to turn that around as they nervously look down to see what the other teams below them are doing.
Jonjo Shelvey is back for Newcastle but there's no Callum Wilson for the rest of the season.
For Spurs, Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon are out of contention but other than these two have a full squad to choose from with all their international stars returning from their respective sides unscathed.
Prediction: Tottenham 2 : 0 Newcastle - First Goalscorer: Kane
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER, the CORRECT SCORE AND the TIME OF THE FIRST GOAL as a comment. The competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 17.30 BST
In the first goal scorer competition, own goals do not count. In the correct score competition, it's the score after 90mins. Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition is fixed at 25K except the time of the first goal competition which rolls over daily starting at 1K. If more than one person chooses the same first goal scorer or correct score, the prize is shared, and everyone gets a little upvote! Don't forget, you can't choose the same prediction as me! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget new rule that only people with a rep of 50 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. My game, my decision is final.
And The Winners Were...
Yesterday's game featured Man. U and Leicester in the late kick-off and it ended up a 1-1 draw. Iheanacho scored the first goal for Leicester in the 63rd minute and...
I'm chalking that up for a win to me as no one managed to predict anything correctly! The tokens remain in the wallet and the first goal time pot raises up another 1000 to 8000. 25K remain for each of the correct score and first goal scorer pots.
That's it for today then. I hope everyone is having a great weekend and good luck with today's game!
