Close encounter likely at Wembley with little at stake
Newcastle have had 20 games settled by exactly one goal
Newcastle's last six matches have produced three one-goal wins and three one-goal defeats.
The losses have been the last three as the Magpies drift towards the summer, and it will be interesting to see how motivated they are against a Tottenham team who may be there for the taking.
Spurs have won only one of their last three games, though it’s worth noting that their only losses at Wembley in the Premier League have been against Chelsea and Manchester City.
