That’s all for today, goodbye!

Newcastle will be pleased with the point after coming so close to losing, but Bruce will be hoping for a much better performance next time out. Their attention turns to the EFL Cup next when they travel to Newport County. Mourinho’s frustration was shown as he left the dugout before the final whistle and next up for them is a tricky tie in the EFL Cup on Tuesday against his former side Chelsea.

Wilson’s penalty earns Newcastle a late 1-1 draw against Spurs. Spurs dominated the first half and Lucas broke the deadlock with a close-range tap-in from Kane’s cross. Son also hit the crossbar and the outside of the post before the break. They couldn’t find another way past Darlow, who had a brilliant game, making 11 saves to deny Mourinho’s side. VAR then awarded Newcastle a stoppage-time penalty which Wilson confidently sent into the bottom-right corner.


90′ + 7′ WILSON SCORES! It’s a confident spot-kick from Wilson and he hits the penalty with a lot of power. He drills it low into the bottom-left corner and even though Lloris went the right way, he couldn’t stop it from crossing the line. 1-1!

90′ + 6′ Winks is booked for dissent.

90′ + 5′ PENALTY TO NEWCASTLE! The check has shown that Carroll was onside when the free-kick was taken so Peter Bankes has gone over to the monitor to have a look at the incident himself. After seeing the replays, he points to the spot and Newcastle have the chance to get a late equaliser.

90′ + 3′ The referee has just brought the game to a halt as there’s a VAR check for a possible handball during the free-kick. When Carroll headed it down, it hit Dier’s outstretched arm.

90′ + 2′ Hojbjerg catches Joelinton to give away a free-kick and the midfielder floats his cross into the right side of the box. Carroll heads it back across goal but Spurs clear their lines and get upfield.

90′ Hayden catches Bergwijn with a late tackle off the ball and is booked for the challenge.

89′ It looks like it should be an easy clearance for Spurs after Carroll can’t fire his shot on target and it bounces around in the six-yard box. There’s a mix-up between Davies and Hojbjerg though and the left-back’s clearance hits Hojbjerg but luckily bounces wide.

88′ There are shouts from Spurs players for a penalty now as Kane feels that there was a handball when he took his shot, which was stopped by Darlow. The referee waves away the claim though.

86′ Newcastle are struggling to keep hold of the ball again at the moment and they’re giving it away sloppily in their attempts to get into the final third quickly as Kane intercepts Hayden’s pass this time.

84′ GREAT SAVE! Lamela is standing over it and goes for goal despite the tight angle. He curls his effort over the wall and Darlow pushes it away with both hands to deny him at the near post.

82′ Lewis sticks out an arm to stop Doherty from getting into the box from the right and picks up a booking as well as giving away a free-kick in a dangerous position.

81′ Murphy spots Carroll’s run through the middle and plays a good throughball into him. He controls it on the turn but has it nicked off him by Dier and Newcastle are frustrated that they haven’t been given a free-kick.

79′ The goal scorer, Lucas, comes off for Spurs and he’s replaced by Lamela.

77′ Final change for Newcastle now and Carroll is on in place of Almiron.

T. Ndombèlé

G. Lo Celso

77′ Mourinho makes his second change as he brings on Ndombele for Lo Celso.

76′ It’s another good cross into the box from a corner for Spurs and Sanchez runs through the middle to get on the end of it. His header takes a deflection off Lascelles which sends it wide of the near post.

74′ Second change for Newcastle now and it’s Hendrick making way for Murphy.

73′ Spurs push forward down the left this time and Davies picks out Lucas in the middle with his throughball. He’s under pressure from Lascelles though and he can’t turn to get a shot away this time.

71′ Doherty has a lot of space to run into down the right and he curls a great cross into the box. It’s missed by Kane, but Bergwijn is in space in the middle. He hits the shot on the volley, but there’s no power on it and Darlow comes off his line to collect it. 

69′ Ritchie is led straight down the tunnel and Lewis in on in his place.

68′ Ritchie is just getting to his feet and he’s not going to be able to carry on as he leaves the field with the medical team, holding his arm to make sure he doesn’t make the injury any worse.

66′ Ritchie has gone down holding his shoulder as he landed heavily on it after going into a challenge with Doherty and he looks to be in a lot of pain. The medical team are on the pitch and he’s getting treatment on it now.

64′ Kane plays a good throughball into Moura, but he’s being closed down by Lascelles so has to try and lay it off to Bergwijn first time. It’s played behind the substitute though and Hayden is back to intercept it.

62′ DARLOW SAVES! Lo Celso is given a lot of space just outside the box as the Newcastle defenders don’t close him down. He cuts onto his right foot before hitting his low shot across goal to the bottom-right corner but Darlow gets a strong hand to it. 

61′ The game is opening up now as Newcastle break quickly on the counter. Wilson picks out Almiron on the edge of the box, but instead of going for goal himself, he lays it off to Hendrick. He keeps his shot low, but it’s well wide of the far post.

59′ GOOD CHANCE! It’s a great cross into the box from Davies and Lucas nods it down for Kane. He takes the shot on the turn, but it’s straight at the keeper and Darlow holds onto the ball.

57′ Spurs are patiently playing out from the back again as they try to break down Newcastle’s shape and get into the final third. Bergwijn looks for Lucas with his cross but he can’t control it under pressure from Hendrick.

55′ Newcastle’s last two away Premier League wins when trailing at half-time both came at Spurs, doing so in October 2014 and December 2015 (P24 W0 D3 L21 since December 2015).

53′ Joelinton is booked after he catches Lucas with a late challenge to stop Spurs’ counter-attack.

52′ Shelvey does really well to hold onto the ball under a challenge from Hojbjerg and curls a good cross into the box. Ritchie is in a lot of space on the left of the box and has a shot, but it’s blocked by Doherty.

50′ Lo Celso goes across to take another corner for Spurs and his floated cross is met by Lucas at the near post. He glances the header on, but Darlow is quickly across his line to hold onto the ball.

48′ Lo Celso has a lot of space on the right wing and he swings a cross into the box. It falls to Doherty but his touch sends it against Fernandez and he’s able to clear his lines.

46′ There’s an early chance for Kane in the second half as Bergwijn’s cross bounces to him in the box. He takes the shot on the turn, but it doesn’t trouble Darlow as it rolls well wide of the far post.

46′ Spurs get us back underway for the second half! 

S. Bergwijn

Son Heung-Min

46′ Spurs are making a change at the start of the second half and it’s Bergwijn coming on to replace Son.

Mourinho will be wondering how his side are only one goal up as they’ve dominated so far and will be wanting to see more of the same from his players after the break. Newcastle have struggled to get into the game with their only chance just before half-time through Shelvey. Bruce will want to see a big improvement from them if they want to get something out of this match.

Spurs dominated in the first half and lead Newcastle 1-0 at half-time. Kane drilled a low cross into the six-yard box and Lucas met it at the far post to tap it into the empty net. They could’ve had a lot more if not for Darlow, who denied Kane and Lo Celso with four great saves. Son has also hit the outside of the post and the crossbar with two of his efforts.


45′ + 3′ Spurs don’t clear their lines following a Newcastle corner and Ritchie has the chance to swing another cross into the box. Shelvey hits it first time on the volley, but curls his shot wide of the far post.

45′ + 1′ Lascelles has gone down after being caught while he was trying to clear the ball and he’s getting some treatment for his ankle now. He’s quickly back to his feet and he’ll be able to carry on.

44′ Shelvey slides in on Lo Celso from behind and takes out the player, despite getting a slight touch on the ball. He picks up the first booking of the game.

42′ OFF THE BAR! Son isn’t closed down on the edge of the box and he has a go from range. He curls his shot around Hayden and Darlow can’t get near it, but it bounces back off the crossbar.

41′ Lascelles takes too long to clear his lines on the edge of the box and is dispossessed by Lucas. He puts a low cross into the middle, but luckily for Newcastle, Hayden is there to block it.

39′ Kane turns away from Hendrick on the edge of the box and decides to go for goal himself, despite the tight angle on the left. He’s trying to catch Darlow out at his near post but fires his shot into the side netting.

37′ Ritchie plays a deep cross into the box for Newcastle on the left and Wilson rises highest to reach it. It bounces off the back of his head but falls to Almiron whose shot is blocked by Winks.

35′ It’s too easy for Spurs at the moment as Son gets the better of Almiron again. He chips his cross into the box and Lo Celso goes for the overhead kick in the middle. It loops up but lands on the roof of the net.

34′ CLOSE! Son swings another corner into the box for Spurs and Dier pulls away from the crowd in the middle of the box to reach it. He heads it down into the ground and his effort bounces just wide of the far post.

32′ Kane has assisted five Premier League goals this season; only in 2016-17 (seven) has he assisted more in any full season.

30′ OFF THE POST! Kane is surrounded by three Newcastle defenders but he manages to touch the ball to Son on his right. He takes the shot from long range and he fires it across goal, beating Darlow, but it rebounds off the far post.

29′ Newcastle are struggling to get a touch on the ball at the moment as Spurs confidently pass it around in midfield. Hayden manages to intercept Doherty’s pass but his throughball forward to Wilson is sloppy.

27′ GOOD SAVE! Kane is denied by Darlow again! Son plays the corner short to Kane and he finds himself in a pocket of space on the edge of the box. He curls his shot towards the bottom-right and Darlow pushes it out for another corner.

25′ SPURS LEAD! It’s a great cross from Kane and Lo Celso slides in at the near post but misses it. Lucas drifts away from Ritchie at the far post and fires his shot into the empty net. 1-0 Spurs! 

25′ Kane just pulls away from Manquillo on the left and drills his cross through the defenders’ legs and into a dangerous area in the six-yard box. 

23′ Shelvey drills a cross into the box from a corner for Newcastle but all of his team-mates are waiting at the far post for it. Hojbjerg is waiting at the near post and heads away the danger.

21′ Wilson is furthest forward for Newcastle again and he’s holding up play as he waits for support to join him. He lays it off to Hendrick when he makes the overlapping run before being brought down by Davies to get a free-kick.

19′ Spurs are patiently playing out from the back as they slowly break down Newcastle’s shape to get into the final third. Lucas cuts inside from the right and dribbles past Ritchie, but can’t pick out Son with his cross.

17′ Newcastle are really struggling in defence as Spurs continue to pile pressure on them. Doherty makes another driving run down the right but loses control of the ball just before the byline and fouls Ritchie trying to keep hold of it.

15′ Son swings a corner into the box for Spurs and Kane is waiting at the far post for it. He heads the ball back across the box but Darlow rushes off his line to collect it before Lucas can reach it.

13′ Lascelles’ clearance almost sets Wilson off on the counter-attack, but he’s the only one in Spurs’ half so he has to look backwards. Almiron is the closest to him, but can’t pick him out with the return pass.

11′ Spurs haven’t lost consecutive home league games since January 2019 (vs Wolves and Man United), while they’ve not lost their first two home games of a Premier League campaign since 2008-09 (vs Sunderland and Aston Villa).

9′ GREAT SAVE! Hojbjerg has a lot of time on the ball and picks out a good cross to Kane in between two defenders in the box. The forward gets his head on to it and Darlow makes a great reaction save from close range to deny him again.

7′ Newcastle are struggling to get out of their own half at the moment as Spurs are closing them down quickly and not allowing them time on the ball. Hendrick takes too long to pick out a pass and gets lucky when he wins a free-kick.

5′ Spurs are keeping the ball well and are causing Newcastle more early problems as they push forward again. Son swings a cross in from the left, looking for Kane at the far post, but Fernandez heads it clear.

3′ GREAT DOUBLE SAVE! Lo Celso is standing over the free-kick and he curls his effort towards the near post. Darlow dives across and gets a strong hand to the shot but pushes it into Kane’s path. He takes the shot first time, but Darlow does brilliantly to smother that effort as well before Kane fires the rebound over the bar.

2′ Doherty makes a driving run down the right wing and drills a dangerous, low cross into the six-yard box but Lloris comes off his line to collect it. Play is pulled back though as Lo Celso was brought down on the edge of the box and Spurs have a free-kick.

1′ Shelvey gets the game underway for Newcastle! 

The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.

Mourinho has won all eight of his home matches against Newcastle in all competitions as a manager (six with Chelsea, two with Manchester United) – it’s his best 100 per cent home winning record against any side in his managerial career.

Steve Bruce makes three changes to the team beaten by Brighton last time out in the league. Ritchie, Almiron and Joelinton all start. Lewis is only fit enough for the bench so he drops down as does Carroll. Allan Saint-Maximin misses out with an ankle injury.

Jose Mourinho makes just one change to the side that beat Southampton 5-2 last weekend as Lo Celso comes in to replace Ndombele, who starts on the bench. New signing Reguilon is also named as a substitute, while there’s no place in the squad again for Dele Alli.

NEWCASTLE UNITED SUBS: Mark Gillespie, Jamal Lewis, Sean Longstaff, Andy Carroll, Jacob Murphy, Emil Krafth, DeAndre Yedlin. 

NEWCASTLE UNITED STARTING XI (4-4-2): Karl Darlow; Javier Manquillo, Jamaal Lascelles, Federico Fernandez, Matt Ritchie; Jeff Hendrick, Jonjo Shelvey, Isaac Hayden, Miguel Almiron; Joelinton, Callum Wilson.

TOTTENHAM SUBS: Joe Hart, Tanguy Ndombele, Toby Alderweireld, Moussa Sissoko, Erik Lamela, SergioReguilon, Steven Bergwijn.

TOTTENHAM STARTING XI (4-3-3): Hugo Lloris; Matt Doherty, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso; Lucas Moura, Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min.

Spurs have lost just one of their last four games in all competitions (W3), but that defeat came in their last home match in the opening league fixture when they lost 1-0 to Everton. Newcastle have also lost one of their previous four matches in all competitions (W3) in a poor 3-0 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend, but they bounced back with a 7-0 win over Morecambe in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.
