Newport’s recent performance
Newport defend an unbeaten run of six games. There were four wins and two draws. Still not lost in 2018. On Tuesday, January 23, at home, was 1 to 1 with Morecambe
The stumble brought the team into the second round of League 2. With 46 points (12 wins, 10 draws and seven losses), Newport are in seventh place in the tournament which, at the end of 46 rounds, sends all three first placed for the Third Division. Who stays between the fourth and seventh places still has a chance to fight for a place in the playoffs.
For the first block, the Newport have three points of disadvantage compared to the third place Accrington. The second peloton is closed by Mansfield, seventh place, with 47 points. That is, the team continues in the fight to rise division.
In the England Cup, the team debuted in the first phase. At home, they beat Walsall 2-1. Then their victim was Cambridge United, who took 2 to 0, also in Newport. Again at home, they beat Leeds 2-1 in the third round.
The current form of Tottenham
It was at this stage that Tottenham can debut, after all, it is a Premier League team. He passed without any fright for the Wimbledon. Scored 3 to 0 at home. The game is part of the list of seven games without defeat of the London team. There were five wins and two draws. It’s another team that still has not lost in 2018.
The most recent result, however, can not be considered good. Even as a visitor, the 1-1 draw with Southampton, which is in free-fall, by 1 to 1, has pummeled Tottenham into the fray for the best place in the standings. With 45 points (13 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses), they are in fifth position, outside the classification zone for the Champions League of Europe.
By having a classic scheduled for January 31 against Manchester United by the Premier League, it is quite likely that coach Maurício Pochettino will not start the match on Saturday with all starters. Some of your top players should be placed between reserves and triggered only if necessary.
This spontaneous limitation can still be augmented by medical problems. They are in the infirmary in injury treatment the titular goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (22 matches in season 2017/2018 of the English Championship); defenders Toby Alderweireld (ten games, no goal), Serge Aurier (12 games, one goal) and Danny Rose (five games, no goal); and Christian Eriksen (23 games, six goals) and Harry Winks (16 games, no goal).
