please log in to view this image Sunday 4th April 2.05pm Premier League St James' Park The international break has come to an end and we're back to the Premier League. Seems like a long time. We ended a very poor week with a win at Villa Park and some players being cast out from the squad. It's a big month with some tough fixtures, leading up to the League Cup final against City on the 25th. We need to start off well, but we're facing a side battling relegation and who are desperate for points. Can Mourinho end the campaign well or will Bruce set out his stall for Premier League survival? Last season was Steve Bruce's first as manager of Newcastle, having taken over from Rafa Benitez. It was not a popular appointment, as the Spaniard was seen as a more ambitious and forward-thinking coach. The Geordie had a relatively successful season though, matching his predecessor's 13th place finish. A poor end to the campaign, cup failures and their biggest signing flopping did not help him, though. Things needed to be brighter this time out or the calls for his head would increase. It's safe to say that it hasn't gone well enough to prevent those calls. Callum Wilson was brought in to provide goals and he has done so, but he's been plagued by injuries. The other signings haven't had the required impact and they go into the final quarter with the team in 17th. They had a horrific January, losing 5 out of 6 league games and exiting the FA Cup, too. Some tough remaining fixtures mean that it's going to be a struggle for them to stay up. Our trip to St James' Park last season came after the lockdown break and was quite productive. We took the lead fairly early on, as Son beat the keeper at his near post, despite the presence of two defenders. The low block was then introduced, as we played on the counter and let them back into it. Ritchie levelled it up just before the hour, but the parity barely lasted a few minutes before Kane headed home. A late counter saw Lamela test Dubravka and he could only palm it to Kane who made it 3-1: The match at our place earlier in the season was a pretty good performance with a controversial ending. Carl Darlow produced a MOTM performance to keep his side in the game, making several early saves. Moura broke the deadlock from a Kane cross, but it could easily have been 3-0 before that. The pattern continued throughout, as the visitors had less involvement than the woodwork. Newcastle first shot on target came from the spot in the 97th minute after a dubious refereeing performance: No injury news yet, but it appears that Son could be back for this one. Schar and Hayden are back for the hosts, while Saint-Maximin, Wilson and Dubravka face late tests. Neither side has any suspensions. Lineups for each side's last league game: Spurs: Lloris; Tanganga, Rodon, Sanchez, Reguilon; Moura, Ndombele, Hojbjerg, Lo Celso; Vinicius, Kane. Subs: Hart, Dier, Davies, Sissoko, Devine, Bale, Alli, Bergwijn, Scarlett. League form: LWWWLW. Newcastle: Dubravka; Manquillo, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett; Hayden, Shelvey, Willock; Joelinton, Almiron, Fraser. Subs: Darlow, Fernandez, Ritchie, Lewis, S.
