We’re back on Grim Reaper watch in the North East.
Steve Bruce is biting down on his gum shield and continuing to swing, despite receiving a barrage of punches from anyone with a mere interest in football.
His Newcastle United side have won just twice in their last 20 matches and are sleep-walking towards relegation, yet Big Bruce is still to receive his p45 from Mike Ashley.
Mourinho has received his own critics in the opposite dugout this season, but will still be hopeful of squeezing through the back door of the Champions League spots.
Tottenham are currently in sixth and will banking on three points inside St. James’ Park.
Will it be Bruce or Mourinho smiling on Sunday evening?
Check out our top Odds Pick and Long Shot below.

|How to Watch||Live on Sky Sports|
Our Top Odds Pick – Over 2.5 goals – 9/10 with Betvictor
Jose Mourinho has had his issues in this stadium in past years, but let’s be honest: so has Steve Bruce.
This being said, the Portuguese powerhouse is unbeaten against Bruce in 12 meetings, winning nine and drawing three.
Despite Newcastle’s appalling form they have scored in their last six matches at St. James’ Park.
No team outside the top three has scored more goals that Tottenham this season and an over 2.5 goals punt looks tasty to sit beside your Sunday lunch.
Our Long Shot – Gareth Bale to score first – 11/2 with bet365
Gareth Bale shone for Wales over the international break once again, and with Son Heung-min still slightly struggling with a hamstring strain, all eyes could be on the Welshman on Sunday.
Bale has scored a goal every 111 minutes in the Premier League this season and alongside Harry Kane will be the focal point of Tottenham’s attack.
11/2 says that the 31-year-old will return to St. James’ Park with a bang.
