The final international break of the season is over and Tottenham have nine Premier League games remaining.

Four of those come in April, with Newcastle, Manchester United, Everton and Southampton lying in wait.

Spurs are now out of the Europa League, which should allow them to focus more on their league form.

Here are our predictions for Tottenham’s four games this month

Newcastle (A) – Win

Newcastle got a point at Spurs earlier in the season, thanks to a late and very dubious Callum Wilson penalty.

If Spurs dominate Sunday’s game like they did then, they should get all three points.

There is a potential injury issue at left-back but Son Heung-min should be fit to play.

Newcastle are low on confidence and sliding towards the relegation spots. Spurs should be able to take full advantage.

Manchester United (H) – Draw

Spurs thrashed United 6-1 in October, putting in arguably their best performance of the season.

That thumping has informed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s approach to big games for the rest of the season.

He has played for 0-0s against Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho is unlikely to push for the win either, and another 0-0 here looks the most likely outcome.

Everton (A) – Draw

Everton have beaten Spurs twice this season; on the opening weekend and in the last 16 of the FA Cup.

The first was a 1-0 win, the other was a 5-4 thriller, settled after extra time.

Everton’s home form has been patchy, but will Spurs really take the game to them and try and take advantage?

Perhaps not, and a draw which keeps both sides chasing the top four could be on the cards.

Southampton (H) – Win

Spurs battered Southampton 5-2 in the reverse fixture, with a devastating display of counter attacking.

This is Spurs’ last league game of the month before the EFL Cup final at Wembley, which could make or break their season.

A morale-boosting win will be the order of the day here against a Saints side without a lot to play for.
