Spurs have a point to prove

Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur have had the quietest summer of all 20 Premier League clubs and need to start strongly at Newcastle United to silence some of their doubters.

No new arrivals at Spurs has raised many eyebrows, while head coach Mauricio Pochettino also has to juggle his squad due to a large number of players having been involved in the latter stages of the World Cup.

Newcastle v Tottenham – Draw @ 12/5

A trip to Tyneside offers a tough test for the Londoners and should the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli be absent against the Magpies, then a share of the spoils might be the most that Spurs can hope for.

Meanwhile, new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri will be eager to start his Premier League career with a win at Huddersfield Town and the Blues should have just enough to see off a Terriers outfit who struggled for goals last season and appear set to do likewise this term.

Chelsea to win 1-0 @ 23/4

Last season the Londoners claimed a 3-1 victory at Town, but this game may be a little tighter, with a lot of eyes trained on the most expensive goalkeeper in world football, Kepa Arrizabalaga.

He and the visitors’ backline should have enough to contain the Terriers and Chelsea have the attacking options needed to make a crucial breakthrough.

Wolves v Everton – Draw @ 23/10

All three newly-promoted teams are also in action on Saturday, with the most intriguing game involving one of that trio seeing Wolves play host to Everton at Molineux.

Both sides have been busy in the summer transfer market and have high expectations for the months ahead, with Wolves expected by many pundits to be top half of the table contenders.

The clash with a revamped Toffees line-up should give plenty of hints about whether that is a realistic target, and cheered on by the Molineux faithful the hosts should be strong enough to secure a point.
