Saha (2) & Adebayor (4 assists + a goal) star as Tottenham crush Newcastle 5-0

Tottenham 5 – Newcastle 0 (Premier League, February 11, 2012) (MOTD highlights.) With White Hart Lane a cauldron of noise, as the home fans urged Harry Redknapp to stay at Spurs, it took the home side just four minutes to take the lead, Bale and Adebayor playing a 1-2 that was finished at the back post by Benoit Assou Ekotto. Just 2 minutes later and Tottenham were 2-0 up as Adebayor charged down the right and crossed for Louis Saha to score his first goal for the club. The dream start for Spurs continued in the 20th minute as Louis Saha slotted home a third from an Adebayor lay-off. And a terrific half from Tottenham was completed when Niko Kranjcar scored his first goal for a year. Tottenham strolled through much of the second half but after claiming four assists, Emmanuel Adebayor volleyed in the fifth.
