Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 0 Newcastle United Football Highlights
(English Premier League)
Venue : Wembley Stadium
Key Moments Recap
76″ 0 – 0 : Close¡ Eriksen pulls strings again. He clips a sensational ball over Lascelles and Llorente meets it from about 12 yards out. The angle is tight but his header sails horribly wide of the post. He indicates that the sun was in his eyes.
83″ 1 – 0 : Spurs just love a late goal…! This is poor though from Dubravka, who has been excellent up until this moment. Son wriggles free of his marker about 22 yards out after some nice hold up from Llorente. He strikes a low effort that is straight at the goalkeeper but it goes straight through him!

Previous Premier League Outing
Tottenham Hotspur 2 – 1 Watford Highlights
Tottenham Hotspur narrowly defeated Watford during the midweek, thanks to a late goal from Fernando Llorente but will welcome a highly motivated side in Newcastle United, who defeated reigning Champions Manchester City in their midweek clash.
Newcastle will be hoping to build on that result but facing two huge top four teams in the same week, is never always an easy task.
Tottenham Hotspur will be without Harry Kane (ankle), Dele Alli (hamstring) and Ben Davies (groin), while Newcastle’s Mohamed Diame is not ready to return and Paul Dummett, Ki Sung-yueng, Rob Elliot and Jonjo Shelvey are also out.
Stats Ahead Of The Game
- Since losing both Premier League meetings with Newcastle in the 2015-16 season, Spurs have won each of their last three against the Magpies.
- None of Spurs’ last 20 Premier League home games against Newcastle have ended as a draw (12 wins for Spurs, 8 wins for Newcastle).
- Newcastle have lost their last seven visits to Wembley in all competitions since winning the 1955 FA Cup final against Man City – the worst ever losing run by a team at the stadium.
- Spurs have lost just one of their last 26 home Premier League games in February (W18 D7), a 0-4 defeat to Manchester United in 2007.
- Newcastle have collected just 12 points in their last 21 Premier League visits to London (P21 W3 D3 L15), with half of those coming against Tottenham (W2 D0 L1).
- Tottenham have won their last two Premier League games despite having conceded the first goal. They’ve never won three in a row after conceding first in the competition.
- Victory or defeat here would see Tottenham set a new Premier League record of most consecutive games without a draw (currently 28).
- Newcastle are looking to win consecutive Premier League games against ‘big six’ opposition for the first time since December 2015, with the second game in that sequence an away win at Tottenham.
- Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son has scored eight goals in his last nine appearances for the club in all competitions.
- Salomon Rondon has scored six Premier League goals this season – twice as many as any other Newcastle player. However, the Venezuelan hasn’t scored in consecutive top-flight appearances since September 2016.
