On October 17, the match of the 8th round of the English Premier League will take place, in which Newcastle will play at home with Tottenham. The forecast for this match is given by Roman Pavlyuchenko, a well-known striker of Spartak Moscow, Tottenham and the Russian national team in the past.

The Magpies are on an emotional high before this match. During the international break, the owners of the club changed – Newcastle was bought by a Saudi organization, whose fortune is estimated at hundreds of billions of euros. Although from a tournament point of view, things are still bad – Steve Bruce's team is in the relegation zone, having only 3 points scored.

Tottenham also disappoints the advantage so far, being only on the ninth line in the Premier League standings, having scored 12 points, but if they win here, Spurs can immediately come close to the Champions League zone.

Roman Pavlyuchenko believes that his former team should soon return to its former high level. From Newcastle, one should expect feats only after the transfer campaign. So far, the Magpies have practically no prerequisites for a breakthrough, and Steve Bruce's days are actually numbered here – the new owners are actively looking for another specialist for the post of head coach. The expert is betting on a clean victory for Tottenham at St. James' Park.
