Newcastle United will be looking to secure their first win of the season when they host Tottenham on Sunday.
The Magpies currently sit 19th in the Premier League table having picked up just three points from their opening seven matches.
Newcastle had started to become a more competitive side prior to the international break with draws against Leeds United and Watford, although a 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers halted some of that momentum.
Despite the result, Newcastle are currently riding the crest of the wave following the completion of the highly anticipated takeover last week.
Amid heavy speculation surrounding his future, though, manager Steve Bruce is set to remain in charge for Sundayâ€™s fixture.
FiveThirtyEight, a website which gives data-driven forecasts for matches, has given Newcastle a 31 percent chance of securing all three points.
Pundits from across the media have weighed in with their views on the upcoming fixture and the Chronicle have rounded them up for you.
Sky Sports betting pundit Lewis Jones has backed Newcastle to earn their first win of the season on Sunday.
In his weekly column, he said: â€œWith so much uncertainty surrounding the manager situation at Newcastle, this encounter is a prediction nightmare from a match result perspective. Steve Bruce or no Steve Bruce, there should still be a revitalised atmosphere at St James' Park and they possess the attack to seriously ask questions of the visitors.
â€œAllan Saint Maximin has had the most shots (14), shots on target (6) and opposition box touches (40) for Newcastle this season and has revelled being the main source of goals since Callum Wilson's injury, scoring in the last two matches at St James' Park. He can make it three in a row here.â€
Prediction: Newcastle 2-1 Tottenham
BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson does not think Newcastle will have enough to beat Spurs, but believes they will extend their run of home draws to three.
He said: â€œI keep reading about who the next Newcastle manager is going to be, so I feel sorry for Magpies boss Steve Bruce, because no-one has come out and said what is happening to him.
â€œWhatever the decision is on his future, just tell him and make it public - don't just leave him dangling. It's not an ideal situation for him or his players.
â€œTottenham found a bit of form against Aston Villa in their last game, but they are still far from convincing and I don't think they will be able to spoil the party for the Newcastle fans in the stands.â€
Prediction: Newcastle 1-1 Tottenham
For a full house of unbeaten predictions, Vinnie Jones, like his namesake Lewis, thinks Newcastle will bag all three points due to the feel-good factor around St. Jamesâ€™ Park.
In his latest EasyOdds column, he said: â€œYouâ€™ll see Iâ€™m going Newcastle to beat Spurs on Sunday. The feelgood factor is back at St Jamesâ€™ Park a few billion-fold and Iâ€™d imagine the atmosphere there will be fantastic - and can see the Geordies home.
Their supporters will be playing fantasy football hereon in - at least until the January transfer window. Who will they get? Messi, Ronaldo, Mbappe, Neymar - surely anything is possible, isn't it?!â€
