Match Preview

Pardew - Spurs are a bit of a mystery Newcastle boss Alan Pardew admits Tottenham will be something of an unknown quantity when his team face them in their late afternoon kick-off, but he is backing the London club to have a successful season under their new manager Andre Villas-Boas. The Magpies begin their Barclays Premier League campaign by hosting a Spurs side that not only has a different man at the helm from last term, but will also be without some of the players that shone most brightly for them in 2011-12. Villas-Boas - named as successor to the sacked Harry Redknapp this summer - does not have injured midfielder Scott Parker to call upon, or Emmanuel Adebayor after the striker returned to Manchester City following the end of his loan spell, while playmaker Luka Modric is set to be left out, with his move to Real Madrid looking imminent. It all means the make-up of the team and way they might play is difficult to predict, although Pardew, while unsure of what exactly to expect tomorrow, is confident Tottenham are destined to do well over the course of the next nine months. "They are a little bit different to last year because their style is slightly different, and obviously in terms of the personnel," Pardew said. "It is a bit of a mystery really what the team is going to be, so we are kind of guessing what we think it is and we'll work towards that. "But I still think they will have a good season - they have great players and a great manager. It is a tough game for us." Pardew's own team are looking to build upon their impressive effort from last season, in which they exceeded all expectation by finishing in fifth, one spot behind Tottenham. It has landed them a place in the play-off round of the Europa League and Pardew admits it will be important for Newcastle to get their approach to their fixture schedule right should they progress in the competition. He is, however, keen to stress that the Premier League - and trying to keep up the heat on the top four - will be the club's priority. "It is going to very much be about how we progress in the Europa League - we still have to qualify, so we'll get through those two games and then we'll have to look at the matches and how we are going to schedule them," Pardew said. "Without a doubt, I can tell you now that the Premier League is going to come first for sure, and we want to try to push from where we were last year, push those Champions League teams. "We were the closest to them and we are going to try to narrow that gap if we can." Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is considering starting Sandro despite having only seen the Brazilian in training for the first time on Thursday. Five months after being sacked by Chelsea, Villas-Boas makes his return to the Barclays Premier League. While Villas-Boas has been trying to stamp his new brand of football on Spurs, Sandro has spent almost the entire summer in a Brazil shirt. The midfielder turned out five times for his country in the Olympics and then flew immediately to Stockholm to play as a substitute for the national team against Sweden this week. Other than a brief meeting at Brazil's Olympic base in Hertfordshire, Villas-Boas had not met Sandro until yesterday's training session at Spurs Lodge, but the Portuguese rates the midfielder so highly that he is considering starting him at St James' Park. "Sandro arrived back on Thursday, but he's in contention for Saturday," Villas-Boas said. "He had a rest when the season was over and he only played two minutes for Brazil so you could say he is fresh. "He has had the best training possible in terms of playing time so you can say that he is one step ahead in terms of physical preparation."
