      The assist came from E. Lamela.
    • 90'
      HARRY KANE PUTS THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN! Newcastle commit everyone forward and get caught on the break. Kane goes through on goal and could pass it across to Eriksen for an easy tap in, but opts to take it himself, rolling it past a helpless Tim Krul.

      FULL TIME: NEWCASTLE 1-3 TOTTENHAM. The Magpies drop closer to the bottom three with a sixth consecutive defeat, while Spurs jump to fifth place, putting the pressure back on Liverpool. Nacer Chadli opened the scoring, but Jack Colback leveled things up just 18 seconds into the second half, before C

      HALF TIME: NEWCASTLE 0-1 TOTTENHAM. A chorus of boos rain down as the whistle sounds. These fans are very passionate about their Magpies and they are none too pleased as this dreadful run of form looks to be continuing here today. Nacer Chadli's stunning individual strike separates the two sides at

      Newcastle also have a very inexperienced substitutes' bench today, with four teenagers included in the team, three of which have yet to make their first team debut.
    • 0'
      Hugo Lloris (knee) and Kyle Walker (foot) are both absent again from the starting XI, though Jan Vertonghen has recovered in time from an illness, taking the place of Vlad Chiriches in the team. Paulinho and Erik Lamela are also both back in the line-up, replacing Ryan Mason and Andros Townsend.
    • 0'
      The Magpies are without midfielder Moussa Sissoko after the Frenchman picked up a red card in the loss to Liverpool on Monday, though they are boosted by the return of Fabricio Coloccini from suspension. The centre-half replaces Gabriel Obertan, with Ryan Taylor moving into midfield and Daryl Janmaa

      Tottenham looked flat and worn out in their defeat to Aston Villa last weekend. Spurs have played 51 games already this season, more than any other team in the Premier League, and the effects are starting to show. A Champions League berth appears to have again eluded them, but they have even fallen

      Newcastle’s slide began a few weeks too late for them to really be dragged into the relegation battle. The Magpies are currently seven points above the drop, and with just six games remaining, they should be safe. It’s the state of the club that needs evaluating, with the fans questioning the ambiti

      Hello Premier League fans around the world, and welcome to Tyneside on this Sunday afternoon! St. James’ Park is our venue today as Newcastle try and bring an end to their dreadful run of form against a Tottenham side whose top four hopes are on life support. I am Alex Moretto and I will be your in-
    • 1'
      Off we go! Newcastle in their classic black and white stripes, Tottenham in yellow.
    • 3'
      Harry Kane doesn't have to wait too long for his first touch of the ball, and he makes himself a nuisance, forcing Coloccini to track back and put the ball out for a corner. Paulinho's delivery is poor, however, and the chance comes to nothing. Christian Eriksen should be delivering these set pieces
    • 5'
      GOOD INTERVENTION! Newcastle manage their first foray into attack as Anita springs Cabella down the left. The midfielder makes a good run to the top of the area, but can't pick out Gouffran with his final ball as Rose steps forward to intercept.
    • 7'
      STAT ATTACK: Tottenham have not scored in 202 minutes of gameplay in the Premier League, away from White Hart Lane. Their last goal away from came in the first week of March at QPR.
    • 9'
      Kane is down injured, bringing the game to a halt. It's a sight no Tottenham fan wants to see, but he should be just fine. Anita caught him with an arm to the jaw, so he'll just need a quick bandaging and should be alright to carry on momentarily.
    • 11'
      Newcastle have certainly started positively. They've made the most of their ventures forward, while some good pressing in midfield has left Tottenham struggling to transition into attack. Again it's all looking a bit flat at the moment from Spurs.
    • 13'
      OFFSIDE! It's far from the prettiest attack, as a bit of pinball inside the area sees Newcastle struggle to get the ball clear. It falls kindly for Kane from six-yards out, but the flag goes up for offside! You would have fancied the striker's chances of opening the scoring from there.
    • 15'
      WONDERFUL DELIVERY! Good break from Gouffran down the right, getting the ball out of his feet and streaking into space. Ayoze Perez makes a good run across the back of Fazio to get on the end of the winger's delivery, but directs his shot straight into the waiting arms of Vorm.
    • 17'
      There is a long applause in the 17th minute, as there is every week, for the two Newcastle supporters who lost their lives in the horrendous plane crash last year. The cheer lasts the entire duration of the minute, and the visiting fans join in. It's a nice sight to see, with the football world comi
    • 19'
      STAT ATTACK: Newcastle won the reverse fixture this season 2-1 at White Hart Lane, which was their first away victory since March 2014 in the league at the time.
    • 21'
      Poor effort! Newcastle are making waves when they get into attack and Gouffran is looking lively out on the right. He makes another good run down the flank and squares up an inviting ball for Cabella, but the midfield attacks it rather half-heartedly and fails to trouble Vorm with his effort at goal
    • 23'
      Dreadful! Brilliant one-touch football from Tottenham as they break quickly. Kane plays a great ball forward for Eriksen, who chips it across for Paulinho. The Brazilian tries to play in Lamela, but had a clean path at goal and really had to go at it himself.
    • 25'
      For all the attacking intent on display through the first 25 minutes, there really hasn't been much for either goalkeeper. Both sides have looked good in their build-up play, but the final ball has been lacking. There's no telling which team will get the breakthrough.
    • 27'
      HEADED OVER! Danny Rose makes a needless challenge near the corner flag to award Newcastle a free kick. Cabella delivers a delicious ball into the area for Williamson, but the centre-half can't direct his header on goal.
    • 30'
      G N. Chadli Assist Paulinho
    • 30'
      Paulinho provided the assist.
    • 30'
      STUNNING STRIKE AS NACER CHADLI BREAKS THE DEADLOCK! Paulinho and Eriksen combine to win the ball back in midfield and start the Belgian forward. He takes a few steps towards the area and lines up a brilliant left-footed strike from 25-yards out that swerves past Krul and in at the near post.
    • 32'
      STAT ATTACK: Newcastle have lost five consecutive Premier League matches and six of their last seven. They have been held scoreless five times over that span, scoring just two goals.
    • 34'
      Tottenham are back on the front foot, buoyed by the Chadli strike. It's another hole for Newcastle to try and dig their way out of, and you can almost sense the disbelief in their squad, as if to say "well, here we go again!"
    • 36'
      Newcastle appear out of ideas in attack. Cabella is trying to create, but he's being blanketed in possession. Tottenham are defending very well at the moment, frustrating the hosts as they try and claw their way back before the break.
    • 38'
      John Carver could do with giving the young players a chance. They will come on and play with plenty of passion, having so much to prove. They won't fear Tottenham and they don't share the same disbelief as the players out on the pitch, who have been through the thick of this losing skid.
    • 40'
      J. Colback is cautioned by the referee.
    • 40'
      The pace has really fizzled out as we approach half time. It's as if Tottenham are content with their lead, not looking to add onto it, while Newcastle are lacking the belief to give them a spark to go forward and try to level things up.
    • 42'
      Paulinho picks up a yellow card for a late challenge on Cabella, catching him just after he got a pass off. The Newcastle midfielder is down and in pain, clutching his knee, which has added to the long list of worries for John Carver.
    • 44'
      BEATEN OUT BY KRUL! Lovely build-up from the visitors, as the ball is worked through to Kane. The striker has a clean look at goal from inside the left channel and gets a powerful strike off, but Krul is able to punch it clear.
    • 45'
      Lamela could be in trouble here! He slides in with a sloppy, mistimed challenge on Anita, who in feeling the effects of that. Players from both sides gather near the incident as tempers begin to rise. Newcastle urge the referee to send him off, but it will only be a yellow card for the Argentine - w

      G J. Colback Assist Paulinho
    • 46'
      SI G. Obertan SO Paulinho
    • 46'
      SI Sammy Ameobi SO Paulinho
    • 46'
      HOW'S THAT FOR A RESPONSE?! INSTANT EQUALIZER! What a team talk it must have been from John Carver! Perez shows great persistence inside the area and squares it up for Janmaat. His shot is blocked but Colback is there to put home the rebound!
    • 46'
      Sammy Ameobi enters the game and replaces Y. Gouffran.
    • 46'
      G. Obertan enters play, replacing M. Abeid.
    • 46'
      Gabriel Obertan and Sammy Ameobi are on for Newcastle as this second half gets underway!
    • 48'
      Newcastle trailed 1-0 at the break in the reverse fixture and Sammy Ameobi came on for the start of the second half, and the Magpies scored after just eight seconds. It's a remarkable mirror image, as they scored after just 18 seconds here today. Does that mean there is a second in store for Newcast
    • 50'
      STAT ATTACK: Tottenham have kept just two clean sheets in their last 19 away matches across all competitions (W7, D4, L8).
    • 52'
      Tottenham have it all to do again now, and they are dictating the tempo as they enjoy a good spell in possession - but it's Newcastle who have a spring in their step now, full of running in midfield.
    • 53'
      G C. Eriksen Assist Paulinho
    • 53'
      ALL THE WAY IN FROM ERIKSEN! Confusion and bewilderment amongst the Newcastle players, as Krul is livid with his defenders! Eriksen curls in a free kick from the left, and it goes all the way through with no one getting a touch, bouncing in at the far post!
    • 55'
      SHOULD BE THREE! Fantastic running from Chadli down the left. He sprints into space and delivers a superb ball in for Bentaleb, but the midfielder can't guide his header into the back of the net! He really should be scoring from there.
    • 57'
      How's that for an acrobatic clearance? Chadli continues to reak havoc on the left and sends an inviting ball in for Kane, but Coloccini miraculously gets in between and a scorpion kick sees him clear the danger.
    • 59'
      Newcastle started the half so positively and it was looking like they may just have put an end to this losing skid, but a bit of bad luck has them undone yet again. The disbelief is back and you can see it in the body language of these players.
    • 61'
      NASTY TACKLE! Ayoze does well on the right, just outside the area, nudging a ball past Vertonghen. The defender kicks out, but completely misses the ball and takes out the trailing leg of the striker, studs first. He's shown a yellow card and is lucky it isn't more.
    • 62'
      J. Vertonghen receives a yellow card.
    • 63'
      R. Cabella gets yellow.
    • 63'
      STAT ATTACK: Newcastle have earned just nine points since the start of 2015 (W2, D3, L8). Only QPR have posted a worse record since the start of the New Year.
    • 65'
      It's become a real cagey affair out on the pitch. There is no desire or intent being shown by either side, as the game slowly moves toward the finish line. The points are clearly there for the taking, and Newcastle have to see that, but it's as if they don't want it.
    • 67'
      BRILLIANT SAVE! Kane finally shows some determination, charging onto the end of a Paulinho corner, beating a defender and making the ball his. He gets a good first-touch to direct it goalwards, but Krul reacts very well to keep it out!
    • 69'
      Tottenham enjoy another lengthy spell in possession, though it's helped on by some fortunate bounces. Newcastle can do nothing to win it back and they've become locked in purgatory, showing no signs of escaping.
    • 71'
      GREAT GOALKEEPING! Newcastle's shambolic defending is on display again as Lamela is slipped through on goal far too easily. The Argentine runs on the end of it but Krul charges out and bravely gets an arm in to knock it away... a late flag goes up, however, to indicate an offside, so it wouldn't hav
    • 73'
      ABYSMAL! Bentaleb lifts a tremendous chipped pass to send Kane through inside the right of the penalty area. The striker has a few men running towards goal in the centre, but he opts to try and take the chance himself. He slips and makes poor contact with the shot, sending it dreadfully wide.
    • 75'
      SI A. Armstrong SO Paulinho
    • 75'
      A. Armstrong comes on for V. Anita.
    • 75'
      STAT ATTACK: Harry Kane (10) and Christian Eriksen (five) have combined to score 15 of Tottenham’s last 17 away goals in the Premier League coming into today. The Danish midfielder has another today.
    • 77'
      CLOSE! Much better build-up play from the hosts, highlighted by the great work of Obertan near the corner flag. The substitute delivers a ball into the area for Colback, whose first touch is good, but the second is poor as it runs to Vorm.
    • 78'
      SI M. Dembélé SO Paulinho
    • 78'
      M. Dembélé enters play, replacing N. Chadli.
    • 79'
      Newcastle are on the front foot again, with Ameobi finally getting himself involved. The substitute hardly saw much of the ball through this second half, but he's linking up nicely now with Cabella to provide a bit of a threat down the left for Eric Dier to deal with.
    • 81'
      The substitutions from Tottenham have come at a good time, as they've really taken the sting out of the match. It's slowed the tempo again and Spurs are back to enjoying the bulk of possession, playing keep away in attack.
    • 82'
      SI B. Davies SO Paulinho
    • 82'
      D. Rose is replaced with B. Davies.
    • 83'
      HOW DID THAT STAY OUT?! Krul comes out to collect a corner, but Fazio jumps in front of him to head towards goal. It deflects off Colback and back off the defender, before somehow rolling wide of the near post!
    • 85'
      Chaos! Ryan Taylor whips a good free kick into the area but his teammates fail to attack it. Tottenham struggle to clear their lines, however, and Obertan wins it back before earning his side another free kick, this one from 30-yards out.
    • 86'
      Taylor tries to play this one short, giving Ameobi a ball to chase, but it's a poor effort as it runs wastefully behind for a goal kick. Another opportunity wasted by the hosts and time is running out.
    • 88'
      SI R. Mason SO Paulinho
    • 88'
      R. Mason enters the game and replaces Paulinho.
    • 88'
      N. Bentaleb goes into the referee's book.
    • 88'
      STAT ATTACK: There have been just three draws between these two teams in their last 35 meetings in the Premier League.
    • 90'
      There will be three minutes of stoppage time, though some of the home supporters have already made their way out of the stadium as another defeat appears to be on the horizon.
