Kieron Dyer, a former Newcastle United midfielder, believes the Magpies’ current momentum can propel them to the Champions League.
Eddie Howe’s team romped to a 6-1 victory over their top-four rivals, giving them a huge three points in the race for the top-four.
Tottenham Hotspur were blown away by Newcastle United, who scored five goals in just 21 minutes. Spurs had been dreading this match for weeks, and their worst fears were realized as they lost ground in the race for Europe.
Newcastle have a game in hand and can go nine points clear of Tottenham with a win over Everton if Manchester United loses on Thursday night.
Following the heavy defeat, Daniel Levy fired interim manager Cristian Stellini, and Dyer believes the two sides are heading in opposite directions.
“If you look at Newcastle after the game, every fan is in the stadium waiting for all the staff, all the players,” Dyer told Sky Sports.
“The Spurs fans had already left at halftime, and rightly so.” It appears that they are heading in that direction [down] with the fans and the disconnect with the club, while this is only getting worse.
Newcastle’s momentum has the potential to carry them all the way to the Champions League.
