Having taken a North London derby victory over Arsenal to boost everyone’s spirits, Tottenham Hotspur were back in action this evening as we made the long trip up north to face Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United side.
Newcastle have had a mixed season again, but with back to back losses in recent matches, we could understandably expect some kind of a reaction.
And we got one, Newcastle started the far brighter, had more possession and created far more chances than we did, but just ahead of the half hour mark, Son Heung-Min gave us the advantage and we went into the break one goal to the good.
We were a bit more with it in the second half, but Newcastle still dominated chances and in the 56th minute they made it count as they hit the equaliser. It was a bright response though and Harry Kane had us 2-1 in front four minutes later as we reestablished our lead.
Although the hosts continued to dominate, Kane completed his brace in the 90th minute to tie the game and the points up for us.
3-1 – it might not have been pretty, but it’s another win. Up to seventh and Harry passes 200!
