Spurs will face a strong attacking Magpies side in their upcoming friendly fixture.

Season has ended but not for all?! Ange Postecoglou-led Tottenham team were filmed departing for Australia for a friendly against Newcastle United.

The match will kick off just three days after Dejan Kulusevski’s brace secured Spurs a 3-0 fascinating win against Sheffield United on the last matchday. That ensured the team a fifth-place Premier League finish and a Europa League qualification. As for Newcastle, they signed off with a 4-2 win against Brentford and a seventh position to show for.

Despite both sets of fans fuming at the management for not allowing the players a well-earned break, the match is all set to take place!

Kick-off

Wednesday: 23rd May 2024, 7:45 PM AEST, 10:45 AM BST (3:15 PM IST)

Location: Melbourne Cricket Ground

Form

Newcastle: W-W-D-L-W

Tottenham: L-L-W-L-W

Players to watch

Harvey Barnes (Newcastle)

The ex-Leicester star boy had an injury-plagued season with the Magpies. However, Barnes took it upon himself to end the season on a high with a goal. If he manages to stay fit, he could well and truly become a key player in Eddie Howe’s scheme of things.

Brennan Johnson (Spurs)

Quick to earn his place in Ange’s team but one could argue that Johnson has not quite delivered on the pitch as he was expected to. He scored just five goals and provided 10 assists throughout the season. Although a solid season but not a spectacular one for him. A full pre-season camp with his new teammates might ignite the spark that was lacking in his performances.

Match facts

  • Before the 3-0 victory against Sheffield on the final day, Spurs did not keep a clean sheet for nine consecutive games.
  • Newcastle’s last win with a clean sheet was against Spurs, thrashing them 4-0.
