Sunday afternoon turned into a very disappointing day for Tottenham Hotspur fans as Newcastle United made the visit to White Hart Lane for our next Premier League clash.
Despite utterly dominating the tie, we managed to get only two efforts on target across the 90 minutes and with Joelinton finding the net for them to open the scoring in the 27th minute, the history books will only show a 1-0 defeat.
Statistics website Whoscored had poor player ratings after that, probably understandably although the final score more reflected our inability to finish than a statement about Newcastle’s defence.
Moussa Sissoko took Man of the Match with a rating of 7.09 in recognition of his efforts, and the top five best performers on the day were completed by Harry Winks (6.88), Danny Rose (6.79), Davinson Sanchez (6.66) and Son Heung-Min (6.64) as he returned to the side following his suspension from last night.
Onto next week and the upcoming Arsenal clash to get back on track.
