Jamie Redknapp believes that Newcastle United is the favorite to go down in the Premier League this season. They will need a massive transfer window after being brought down to earth when they were beaten at home to Tottenham. Prior to the start of the game, Newcastle fans gave the owners a standing ovation as they entered the director’s box. They got off to the best possible start when Callum Wilson put them ahead after two minutes. However, Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Kane, and Heung-Min Son scored to put the visitors in cruise control.
“Newcastle needs a big transfer window,” Jamie Redknapp said about Newcastle. “They need to get the right characters in during January in the spine of the team. This squad right now is one of the favorites for relegation – you can see it in the mistakes they make every single week. A new manager might change it but it’s hard.”
“My feeling when I look at him is that he’d almost like to be put out of his misery as well. He looks like a man who has done as much as he can, and he is a symbol of the previous regime,” he added. “The bubble was burst. If Saint-Maximin doesn’t get the ball, it’s hard to see where the quality is coming from. The first goal was excellent but after that, the patterns of play weren’t there. They looked a side devoid of confidence and belief. Once Tottenham got hold of the ball, they had extra quality in midfield.”
