TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR VS NEWCASTLE UNITED – WEMBLEY STADIUM, LONDON
Spurs fans would have been so grateful that they could welcome back their hero Heung Min Son for their midweek Wembley clash with Watford. The South Korean was back in the Spurs squad and on the scoresheet again too following his nations’ Asian Cup exit as he helped his side rally back from a goal down to seal a hugely important 2-1 win in a week where Liverpool and City ahead of them both shipped points.
Rafa Benitez was the man responsible for masterminding a first Magpies victory over Manchester City since 2005, putting a real dent in their Premier League title aspirations in the process. That was Newcastle’s second successive win in the division and third from their last four matches in all competitions.
Mauricio Pochettino will once again be without the services of Harry Kane and Dele Alli through injury, the latter of which has scored in two of his last three appearances against Newcastle.
A Tottenham win on Saturday would see them leapfrog City into second place with Pep Guardiola’s side set to play Arsenal on Sunday. Spurs have won the last three against Newcastle including a 1-0 win in the corresponding fixture at Wembley last season before a 2-1 win in the reverse fixture in August - their second consecutive opening day success against the Toon.
CHELSEA VS HUDDERSFIELD TOWN– STAMFORD BRIDGE, LONDON
Despite having the Carabao Cup final to look forward to, Maurizio Sarri will certainly be feeling the pressure at the Chelsea helm following his sides capitulation at Bournemouth on Wednesday – their second successive defeat in the division. The Blues 4-0 loss coupled with Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Cardiff on Tuesday leaves them sitting outside the top four for the first time this season, behind the Gunners on goal difference.
Huddersfield’s new manager Jan Siewart’s first game in charge of the Terriers didn’t quite go as he would’ve hoped as he saw his side ultimately outdone 1-0 at home by Everton on Tuesday – Richarlison’s 10th goal of the campaign the difference on the night. With the visit of Arsenal to follow this weekend’s outing the German’s quest for his first Premier League points may yet to go on longer still.
New Blues recruit Gonzalo Higuain, who was handed his first start at the Cherries, is expected to lead the line once again despite being hauled off on 65 minutes for Olivier Giroud after a rather ineffective showing.

Chelsea have won two and drawn one against Huddersfield Town since the latter earned promotion to England’s top-flight in 2017. David Wagner’s side picked up a hugely important point at Stamford Bridge in the corresponding fixture last season – the 1-1 draw going along way to ensuring their Premier League survival.
Pedro was on target for the visitors on the opening day of this campaign when the pair last faced-off – the Spaniard’s second goal in three appearances against the Terriers.
