Just one point separates Tottenham and Newcastle in the Premier League table ahead of their meeting in north London on Sunday.
Both of these sides have top four ambitions this season but both head into this fixture in poor form and with lengthy injury lists.
Spurs have just one point to show from their last five games and Newcastle have three defeats in their last six, while they haven’t managed an away win in the league since September.
Ahead of Sunday's encounter at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, we have assembled a 28/1 Bet Builder for the match.
Bet Builder - 28/1
Alexander Isak had a poor game at Everton in midweek but nobody in the Newcastle team at Goodison Park managed to really impress and the forward will be keen to bounce back with a big performance at Tottenham.
The Sweden international has seven goals in 11 Premier League appearances this season and has two in four games across all competitions since returning from injury. Goals at both ends should be expected in North London as Spurs have seen both teams score in each of their last six games.
The hosts also have a lengthy injury list with some key defenders missing, and Isak is the most likely contender in the visiting side to take advantage so he appeals as an anytime scorer option.
Spurs have scored in all of their home games this season and have hit 11 goals in seven Premier League games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Newcastle also have to cope with some notable absentees at the back, so Spurs should be able to find a way through and with Son Heung-min potentially missing Brennan Johnson looks a good scoring contender.
The Wales international has only scored one Premier League goal in nine games this term but is averaging a solid 1.7 shots-per-game. Johnson had five attempts against West Ham in midweek and has had 12 attempts across his last four games. The 22-year-old is getting chances and with Newcastle stretched at the back - and without their first choice keeper - this may be the game where Johnson’s luck changes and he is able to get on the scoresheet.
Anthony Gordon has been a bit of a card magnet for Newcastle with six bookings in 14 Premier League appearances, and he has also received one yellow card in five Champions League games.
Most of those cards came earlier in the season for Gordon but he has still been committing plenty of fouls and was called up twice by the referee against Everton last time out. This is likely to be a hard-fought game between two direct rivals and that may well lead to a few cards being dished out, and Gordon is a clear contender for a booking.
Tottenham’s biggest concern is Son Heung-min, who was forced off against West Ham after taking a blow to the back. The Spurs skipper will be monitored and could be forced to miss out on Sunday.
Seven Spurs players are sidelined by injuries, including James Maddison and Rodrigo Bentancur, but Pape Matar Sarr may return to the starting line-up after featuring as a substitute against the Hammers.
Newcastle have a huge list of absentees with up to 12 players missing for the trip to Tottenham. Keeper Nick Pope has a serious shoulder issue and is expected to be out until April, with Callum Wilson, Joe Willock and Sven Botman also sidelined.
Defender Jamaal limped off late on in the defeat at Everton on Thursday but boss Eddie Howe is hopeful he will be involved this weekend.
Tottenham are winless in their last five games (D1, L4).
Newcastle have managed just one win in seven attempts away from home in the Premier League.
Both teams have scored in five of Tottenham’s seven home games in the Premier League and they have scored themselves in all of them.
