34′ KANE AGAIN! 2-1! Tottenham have turned it around! Ndombele drives at the Newcastle defence, before splitting them open with a threaded pass into Kane, who charges into the box before rifling a low shot across goal and into the bottom corner from 12 yards!

32′ Newcastle will be fuming with themselves. After securing a precious lead, they’d have been aiming to sit deep and defend it. However, they weren’t fully focused from kick off and they’ve immediately surrendered their advantage.

30′ KANE! 1-1! Spurs hit back immediately! Ndombele slides a brilliant throughball into Lo Celso, who squares it into Kane, whose touch fortuitously bounces against Krafth and past Dubravka, allowing Kane to swoop in and tap it in from two yards!

S. Longstaff

Assist

Newcastle United

28′ Longstaff did brilliantly there. When the space opened up for him inside the box he could have easily taken a shot himself, but instead he selflessly rolled it across to Joelinton who finished a simple chance!

28′ JOELINTON! 1-0! Newcastle take the lead as Sanchez hits a weak clearance into Ritchie, allowing Longstaff to run into the box, before slipping it across to Joelinton who hits a low, first-time finish beyond Lloris!

27′ Krafth’s througball in search of Joelinton is too powerful and it drifts away for a goal kick.  

25′ Vinicius has it in the net after finishing a one-on-one, but the play’s called back for a clear offside.   

23′ Newcastle have grown into the came after a nervy start and they’ll be incredibly frustrated that they weren’t able to take the lead through one of Gayle’s chances.   

21′ Vinicius latches onto a cut back from Kane inside the box, but play is quickly stopped for an offside.   

19′ Amazing double save from Lloris! Shelvey picks out Gayle with a precise cross and the striker’s initial header is clawed off the line by Lloris, before his follow-up effort is blocked away by the goalkeeper from close range! Gayle can only shake his head in disbelief!   

17′ Newcastle win another corner, as Gayle heads Murphy’s cross against Tanganga and behind. However, the resulting set-piece amounts to nothing as the referee immediately blows up for a foul.   

15′ Ritchie connects with Krafth’s deep cross, but he can only screw his volley away for a throw-in.  

15′ Shelvey’s corner is headed clear by Reguilon at the back post.  

13′ If the visitors are to claim an important win, you’d think Kane will be at the heart of it. Kane has been involved in 43 goals in 40 games in all competitions this season (27 goals, 16 assists), just two short of his best ever season in his senior career (41 goals and 4 assists in 2017-18).

11′ Tottenham have made an excellent start – they’ve controlled the game and have created plenty of chances against a cautious Newcastle.  

9′ Strong save from Dubravka! Kane drives into the box and cruises past Krafth, before firing a stinging, angled drive from 12 yards that Dubravka skilfully parries over the bar!  

7′ Moura goes down under Almiron’s clumsy challenge just outside the box, earning Spurs another dangerous free-kick. However, Kane steps up and curls it wastefully into the wall, allowing Newcastle to clear.   

5′ Tottenham go close! Krafth bundles into Moura, presenting the visitors with a promising free-kick near the left-hand side. Moura takes it himself, and his delivery evades everyone before spinning narrowly wide of the far post!

3′ Sanchez heads a clearance out to Joelinton, who quickly lashes a shot straight at Lloris from 25 yards.  

2′ Vinicius immediately gets in behind the Newcastle defence and drills in a low cross towards Kane, that Dubravka carefully gathers.   

1′ Tottenham get the first half underway.   

The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!

The hosts are in dismal form and will be under serious pressure today. Since winning back-to-back league games against Crystal Palace and West Brom, Newcastle have won just two of their last 18 Premier League games (D5 L11). The Magpies have picked up fewer points in this period than any other Premier League side (11).

Tottenham are unchanged from the side that defeated Aston Villa 2-0 last time out.

Newcastle make five changes to the side that suffered a bitterly disappointing 3-0 defeat to Brighton before the international break: Clark, Maquillo, Willock, Isaac Hayden and Ryan Fraser all drop out.

SUBS: Gareth Bale, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, Erik Lamela, Harry Winks, Dane Scarlett, Joe Hart, Son Heung-Min.

TOTTENHAM (4-4-2): Hugo Lloris; Japhet Tanganga, Davinson Sanchez, Joe Rodon, Sergio Reguilon; Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Lucas Moura; Harry Kane, Carlos Vinicius.

SUBS: Karl Darlow, Joseph Willock, Ciaran Clark, Elliot Anderson, Jeff Hendrick, Matthew Longstaff, Allan Saint-Maximin, Javier Manquillo, Jamal Lewis.

NEWCASTLE UNITED (4-2-3-1): Martin Dubravka; Emil Krafth, Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett, Matt Ritchie; Sean Longstaff, Jonjo Shelvey; Jacob Murphy, Miguel Almiron, Joelinton; Dwight Gayle.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are battling for a top-four spot. They find themselves in seventh after four wins from their last six games and they’ll be looking for a victory to pull level on points with fourth-place Chelsea. 

Hello and welcome to live commentary of this Premier League fixture between Newcastle United and Tottenham. The hosts enter this one right in the heart of a relegation battle: they’re in 17th and just two points clear of Fulham after a winless run of six games. They’ll be desperate for a victory today to ease the pressure.
