Rafa Benitez worked his magic last season guiding a Newcastle side that appeared destined for a relegation dog fight to a 10th placed finish after their promotion from the Championship in the 2016/17 season. They kick off their new campaign with a tough test against Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham.
Confidence should be high at Spurs, heading into the season after a World Cup that featured many outstanding performances from Tottenham players, including Golden Boot winner Harry Kane, World Cup winning French captain Hugo Lloris and a staggering nine players reaching the semi-finals. After a third-place finish last season, Tottenham will hope to begin a title-challenging campaign with three points at St James Park.
