Bet Live on the Capital One Cup Quarterfinal: Tottenham vs. NewcastlePublished December 17, 2014 by Amir G
Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United clash in the FA Cup quarter-final (7:45pm UK time).
Today's intriguing FA Cup quarter-final summons two veteran Premier League clubs Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United (7:45pm UK time). The two teams have already met this Premier League season when Newcastle turned Tottenham's 1-0 lead to an impressive 1-2 victory at White Hart Lane. With today's quarter-final taking place at the same stadium, Spurs have the chance to get their redemption.
While striker Emmanuel Adebayor is still unavailable, Tottenham's been doing OK in the season so far, currently positioned seventh in the table with 24 points. Without Adebayor, Tottenham will rely on Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane to score today and at the same time Spurs must fortify their defense which suffers from inconsistency.
Newcastle On a Run
Despite the 4-1 loss to Arsenal that Newcastle suffered in Saturday, Newcastle could very well win today. The Magpies are one point beneath Tottenham in the Premier League table and they made strides getting to today's quarter-finals against other leagues from the Premier. The wins included a 3-2 over Crystal Palace and a 2-0 giant slaying of reigning champion Manchester City – all this with a team suffering from injuries and other setbacks.
Taking that last bit into consideration coupled with Newcastle's high motivation for advancing here today, the team could surprise today despite the odds - it's a very open game. Newcastle will look at the likes of Perez and Cisse to score today and the defense will be reinforced by Steven Taylor's return from injury.
