Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Newcastle United v. Tottenham Hotspur Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Newcastle United do not have much to play for in this contest, but that doesn't mean they will take the game lightly. The last thing the Magpies want to do is end the season on a sour note, and that's exactly what has happened over the last few days, as Steve Bruce's men are riding a three-game winless streak (D1, L2), including back-to-back defeats. The scenario couldn't be any more different for Tottenham, as Jose Mourinho's men are on a three-game undefeated run (W2, D1) following their London derby win over Arsenal last week. Spurs remain alive in the race for a spot in the 2020-21 UEFA Europa League, and they sit just three points behind Wolves for sixth place, with both teams playing Wednesday. Undoubtedly, Tottenham should be very motivated for this contest.

Tottenham Hotspur: Hugo Lloris; Toby Alderweireld, Serge Aurier, Ben Davies, Davinson Sanchez; Giovani Lo Celso, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks, Son Heung-Min, Lucas Moura; Harry Kane

Top Picks

Harry Kane, Tottenham: Kane hasn't scored in any of his last three matches, but the Englishman seems due to break the duck in this contest. The towering forward has racked up 17 shots in his last five games and will face a struggling, depleted defense.

Son Heung-Min, Tottenham: If Kane is bound to have a strong game, then he'll need the support from his teammates playing up front. Son could be a good alternative to produce, as the South Korea international was involved in the two goals Tottenham scored against Arsenal in their last game.

Captain and Vice-Captain Options

  1. Harry Kane
  2. Son Heung-Min
  3. Lucas Moura
  4. Giovani Lo Celso
