Tottenham vs Newcastle LIVE!

A dominant Newcastle United struck twice within 95 seconds as Alexander Isak's brace helped them secure a 4-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday, a vital result in their bid to qualify for European competition. The hosts led at the half-hour mark when Anthony Gordon got hold of a long ball, shook off Destiny Udogie and sent it through to Isak who scored. Gordon doubled their lead soon after when he intercepted a pass from Pedro Porro and finished.

Isak struck again six minutes into the second half when he chased a long ball from Bruno Guimaraes past the Spurs' high backline and beat the keeper with ease. Fabian Schar scored the hosts' fourth goal with a header in the 87th minute. Newcastle moved up to sixth place in the standings with 50 points from 32 matches, one ahead of Manchester United who have played a game less and visit Bournemouth later in the day. Spurs are fifth with 60 points.

96min: That’s your lot!

14:21 , Alex Young

91min: Five more minutes for Spurs to endure.


14:17 , Alex Young

87min: There’s the fourth! Schar climbs highest to nod in Gordon’s corner.

A thrashing.

14:16 , Alex Young

86min: Gordon should have made it four! Spurs ripped open again and Gordon just needs to get the target but Van de Ven gets a boot in the way.

14:11 , Alex Young

82min: Maddison is replaced by Lo Celso is huge boos from the Newcastle fans.


14:10 , Alex Young

81min: Kraft’s deflected effort after a corner spins off the outside of the post!

14:10 , Alex Young

79min: Newcastle very much going through the motions now, as are Spurs. Lo Celso being readied for Spurs.

14:04 , Alex Young

74min: A great tackle by Kraft to deny Werner on the left. Such an impressive Newcastle display across the pitch.

13:59 , Alex Young

70min: Maddison tries his luck from 30 yards, flies well over.

Dom Smith at St James' Park

13:59 , Alex Young

More possession for Tottenham in recent minutes but Newcastle know they are home and dry if they stay compact and are limited the space available to Spurs effectively.

13:55 , Alex Young

66min: Hojbjerg sends a cross straight out of play as Spurs were trying to build something. Sums up this Spurs display.

13:53 , Alex Young

62min: Superb save from Vicario to deny Anderson at the near post. Newcastle could have had six today.

13:51 , Alex Young

62min: Maddison gets booked for a high boot, very deserved. That looked like the act of a man frustrated.

13:47 , Alex Young

58min: Son, Bissouma and Bentancur are off, Sarr, Hojbjerg and Kulusevski on.

13:45 , Alex Young

55min: Triple change for Spurs coming.

Dom Smith at St James' Park

13:44 , Alex Young

Harder to blame that third goal on poor Tottenham defending, certainly compared to the first two.

It was excellent, intelligent play for Isak to bend his run — and he’d have been onside anyway because he was in his own half when the ball arrived over the top. Tottenham staring defeat in the face now.

13:44 , Alex Young

54min: Newcastle want a penalty as the ball strikes Royal, but his hands are behind his back. Corner instead.


13:42 , Alex Young

51min: Isak again! That should be that!

Isak turns Van de Ven inside his own half and just runs through and scores!

13:39 , Alex Young

50min: Royal is on and his first job is defend this corner... which he does.

13:38 , Alex Young

49min: It gets worse for Spurs as Porro looks like he cannot continue. Royal is being readied.

13:37 , Alex Young

47min: Bissouma goes in strong on Longstaff and gets booked for his troubles.

Second half!

13:35 , Alex Young

46min: Back underway. No changes.

13:35 , Alex Young

Teams are back out. Doesn’t look like Postecoglou has made changes.

Dom Smith at St James' Park

13:30 , Alex Young

That has been a nightmarish first half for Tottenham. Defending has been woeful, with errors responsible for both goals. Offensively, their threat has been pretty much non-existent.

Postecoglou, unsurprisingly, left shaking his head at plenty of decision-making from his players. A mountain now to climb.

13:19 , Alex Young

48min: A wild first half, which saw Spurs fairly comfortable and then suddenly a quickfire double as Newcastle cruising.

13:17 , Alex Young

46min: Two minutes added on.

13:16 , Alex Young

45min: Maddison tries to find Son but Burn gets back in time. The Spurs captain has had a quiet half.

13:15 , Alex Young

44min: Newcastle are just slicing Spurs open at every opportunity. Spurs a desperate for half-time.

13:14 , Alex Young

42min: Bentancur is booted in the head by Burn but Spurs play on and eventually Maddison tests Dubravka with shot from the edge of the area.

No free kick, strangely.

Dom Smith at St James' Park

13:11 , Alex Young

Tottenham are living so dangerously. More than shades of the 6-1 last season here as Newcastle are getting in behind with almost every attack

Van de Ven and Udogie the latest players to produce blocks needed to prevent the hosts from firing themselves further ahead. Spurs in serious need of some calm — and some belief.

13:09 , Alex Young

37min: Spurs are all over the place! Isak turns inside Van de Ven and looks certain to score another, only for Udogie to get back to clear.

Dom Smith at St James' Park

13:08 , Alex Young

Two really amateurish-looking goals for Tottenham to concede. The first came from an attack where Maddison and Son bumped into each other, the second from Porro’s poor pass-back.

Van de Ven — who has had a shocker so far — ends up on the floor for both goals. Terrible, terrible defending.

13:04 , Alex Young

32min: Another! Van de Ven is again sent to the deck and Gordon just bends the ball around Vicario!


13:03 , Alex Young

30min: Spurs lose possession in the final third thanks to fine work from Van de Ven, feeds Isak who cuts inside, puts Van de Ven on his behind and drills the ball beyond Vicario!

12:58 , Alex Young

27min: Oh, wait, Van de Ven is booked. Referee had a second thought.

12:58 , Alex Young

26min: Superb run by Gordon is stopped by the combination of Werner and Van de Ven. Finally a booking? Nope.

Dom Smith at St James' Park

12:55 , Alex Young

The ever-outraged Tindall making the point to Postecoglou that the crude challenge on Maddison there was exactly the same as the one Maddison himself had just made — and therefore they were either both yellows or neither was.

Feels just a tad biased from Newcastle’s assistant, considering Maddison was clear through on a counter-attack there.

12:55 , Alex Young

22min: Now Burn is lucky not to be booked for dragging back Maddison! But the referee can’t book the Newcastle player as he didn’t book Maddison (I’m assuming).

12:52 , Alex Young

21min: Maddison lucky not to be booked for a body-check on Gordon. Huge boos around the ground.

12:50 , Alex Young

Spurs dominating possession but not doing a huge about in it at the moment. The hosts have done well with less than 30 per cent possession.


Dom Smith at St James' Park

12:49 , Alex Young

Quite a stop-start beginning to this match in truth, with plenty of niggling fouls disrupting the early rhythm. Also some unforced errors, with both sides putting passes needlessly into touch. Not yet a match of particularly high quality.

12:46 , Alex Young

14min: It’s almost wave after wave from Newcastle. Gordon the latest to force a corner after jinking into the box.

12:44 , Alex Young

12min: Spurs struggling to contain Newcastle at the moment. It’s been a good start by the hosts.

12:43 , Alex Young

10min: The ball almost falls to Bruno Guimaraes in the six-yard box but Bissouma is on hand to clear for a corner.

The subsequent delivery is headed harmlessly wide.

12:40 , Alex Young

7min: A sitter! Werner is free at the back post and has the goal gaping, but he cannot direct a volley on target!

The pace of the cross from Johnson was quite something, to be fair.

12:35 , Alex Young

4min: A couple of early Newcastle corners, which are not troubling Spurs. The hosts have started on top.

12:34 , Alex Young

2min: Schar wipes out Son and that could have been an early yellow card.


12:31 , Alex Young

1min: Here we go!

Dom Smith at St James' Park

12:30 , Alex Young

Spurs have not kept a clean-sheet in the Premier League for over a month, since thrashing Aston Villa 4-0 away from home, and that is despite having faced the likes of strugglers Luton and Nottingham Forest in that time.

Alexander Isak and Jacob Murphy scored two goals each in Newcastle’s thumping 6-1 win in this fixture last season, so Spurs’s wait for their next clean-sheet could well go on, but Postecoglou’s trusted back-four of Udogie, Van de Ven, Romero and Porro have been solid all season when fit.

12:27 , Alex Young

Here come the players.

Eddie Howe to TNT Sports

12:23 , Alex Young

"We have picked a versatile team. When you play Tottenham they are tactically interesting, we have picked a versatile team that can match-up to Tottenham very well."

He adds: "Spurs stick to what they do [well]. Their rotations is very good and regardless of the formation we have to be adaptable, then of course on the ball we have to do what we have to do."

12:15 , Alex Young

Final prep ahead of kick-off now. This should be a cracker.

Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou

12:08 , Alex Young

"Newcastle are very aggressive, particularly with their pressing, and when they play at home, irrespective of how they set up, the energy they get from the crowd means it’s usually a really up tempo game.

"We have to make sure we bring our energy to it. It’s an important game in the context of our season."

It's two changes for Newcastle from the 1-0 win at Fulham last time out.

Willock, as expected, it out and Hall is only fit enough for a place on the bench. Anderson and Barnes come in.

It's one change for Tottenham as Bentancur replaces Sarr in midfield.

Postecoglou excited by Tottenham future

11:02 , Alex Young

Ange Postecoglou believes there is still "so much growth" to come from his young Tottenham players, and has spoken in glowing terms about Pedro Porro, Pape Sarr and Micky van de Ven in particular.

On Saturday, Spurs face Newcastle at St. James' Park, where Porro and Sarr were two of the fall-guys from their humiliating 6-1 defeat last season, which brought down the curtain on interim coach Cristian Stellini's strange interregnum.

Under pressure to deviate from Antonio Conte's set-up, Stellini switched to a back four on Tyneside, featuring Porro at right-back, with disastrous consequences.

The game helped to foster a perception that the Spaniard was a specialist wing-back who could not be trusted in a back four.

But Postecoglou, who revealed he has not watched the game back, says he had no concerns about using Porro in his current role.

"No, I didn't," the Spurs manager said Friday. "I really enjoyed working with Pedro right from the start."

“I admire them tactically; I admire them physically. A lot of credit must go to Ange (Postecoglou) for the job he has done and the philosophy he has implemented.

“I think they have played very well this year."

Newcastle slump a 'cautionary tale' for Tottenham

10:40 , Alex Young

Ange Postecoglou has described Newcastle's drop-off this season as "a cautionary tale" for Champions League-chasing Tottenham.

Newcastle finished 11 points ahead of Spurs last term but have been unable to build on their place in the top four, and trail Postecoglou's side by 13 points ahead of Saturday's lunchtime kick-off at St James' Park.

Eddie Howe's side also finished bottom of their Champions League group and their squad has been ravaged by injuries throughout the campaign.

Postecoglou has previously said the declines of Newcastle and Manchester United this term are the perfect examples of why finishing in the top four is not a "Willy Wonka Golden Ticket" to go up a level.

Asked if those clubs' positions in the table proved his point, Postecoglou said: "I guess I gave that as an example of one of the reasons why I don't think it should be the end point or some avenue you think will get you to be successful for a sustained period just because you have achieved that.

"Certainly there is a cautionary tale there that getting into the Champions League also means greater demands. Demands on players, demands on the squad and you have to be geared up for it or else it can affect all parts of your season.

"It has been tough on Newcastle this year because the progress last year was fantastic. The reward for that was Champions League and this year for whatever reason it has made it a really challenging season on all fronts for them."

Newcastle vs Tottenham prediction

10:31 , Alex Young

Newcastle are leaking goals left, right and centre and Spurs should have the tools to punish a makeshift backline.

Tottenham to win, 3-1.

Tottenham team news

10:22 , Alex Young

Tottenham midfielder Ange Postecoglou faces big decisions in midfield.

Yves Bissouma and Pape Sarr have tended to be Tottenham's first-choice two this season but Spurs improved after they were replaced at half-time by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur in last weekend's 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest.

Sarr, who was substituted after 23 minutes with Spurs 5-0 down on their last visit to St. James' Park, adds energy to the side and may pick up now he is no longer fasting for Ramadan, while Postecoglou has tended to stick with Bissouma.

The manager's other decision is in the front three where Dejan Kulusevski and Brennan Johnson are jostling for one place on the right. Johnson, though, has been in good form of late and seems likely to keep his place alongside Heung-min Son and Timo Werner.

Richarlison remains sidelined with a knee injury, while long-term absentees Manor Solomon (knee), Fraser Forster (ankle) and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) are still out.

Newcastle team news

10:15 , Alex Young

Joe Willock is set to miss today's due to an Achilles injury, manager Eddie Howe said on Friday.

Willock, who has already missed large parts of the season due to Achilles and hamstring injuries, limped off in the first half of Newcastle's 1-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage last week.

Newcastle will be hoping it is not a long-term injury for Willock, with Jamaal Lascelles, Nick Pope, Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson among a lengthy list of players already sidelined.

Howe said the player closest to making a return from injury was defender Tino Livramento, adding: "He has not trained with the team but has been out on the grass.

"Lewis Hall has not trained at all this week, so he is a slight concern from last week.

"Other players are doing well in the background so I am hoping in the not-too-distant future we can get three or four back."
