Newcastle 6-1 Tottenham: Match report, player ratings, fan reaction & more

Newcastle and Tottenham clashed in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.


It was a huge tie for both sides with a spot in the Champions League next season potentially on the line.

Newcastle were 4th with 56 points heading into the game, whilst Tottenham were 5th with 53 points. And as Spurs have played one more game than the Magpies, they really need a win to keep their top-four hopes alive.

When all was said and done, Newcastle picked up a comfortable win.

Newcastle took less than a minute to score on Sunday. Joelinton cut inside with ease before his parried shot fell to Jacob Murphy who smashed his shot past Hugo Lloris.

The Magpies doubled their lead four minutes later with Joelinton the scorer on this occasion.

In one of the most bizarre starts to a game this season, Newcastle made it 3-0 after just eight minutes. Jacob Murphy unleashed a long-range effort, which left Lloris planted.

The Newcastle onslaught continued as Alexsandr Isak made it 4-0 with 18 minutes gone after being slipped in by Joe Willock. The Swede added a second goal just two minutes after his first.

This was followed by Spurs bringing on Davinson Sanchez and going to a back-five after 22 minutes. Fraser Forster was then brought on at half-time for Hugo Lloris.

Harry Kane then pulled one back for the Lilywhites three minutes into the second half. Callum Wilson got Newcastle’s 6th after 67 minutes.
