Newcastle 1-3 Tottenham LIVE SCORE: Son doubles Spurs lead as visitors close on victory after medical emergency

October 17, 2021

NEWCASTLE'S first game under Saudi ownership has done anything but gone to plan on a surreal afternoon on Tyneside.

The new owners' reign could hardly have started better as Callum Wilson headed the Toon in front after just two minutes, but nothing since then has followed the script.

Spurs equaliser on 17 minutes when Tanguy Ndombele fired a powerful strike into the top corner to level, before Harry Kane netted a deft chip to put Nuno's men ahead.

The match then had to be suspended after a fan was tended to in the stands, with the Spurs players praised for alerting the officials to the incident.

And once the match resumed, Kane squared to Son to double the North Londoners' advantage.

    70. His display won't make many headlines, but Oliver Skipp has again excelled alongside Hojbjerg in midfield.

    The youngster demonstrates great composure and some very smart positional play.

    68. Another minute passes, another Newcastle player goes into the book.

    This time Isaac Hayden is the guilty party for the crime of climbing over the back of Lucas Moura – and not for the first time today.

    66. Spurs almost prise open the hosts' again.

    Hojbjerg, Kane and Lucas Moura combine to put Son on the run at goal, only for Lascelles to get a block in on the South Korean's audacious backheel spin.

    64. There's a roar for a penalty from the Gallowgate End as Willock flops to the turf at that end of the stadium. However, Andre Marriner isn't interested.

    Correction: Andre Marriner is interested. He's interested in booking Willock for what was a fairly dubious dive.

    62. Ndombele's cross from the right is blocked behind by Ritchie.

    The Brazilian defender isn't satisfied with the award of the corner, however, and wants a free-kick for handball against the Scot. Ritchie certainly raised his arm in a less than natural position to intervene.

    And having seen how the corner panned out, you can understand why the right-back would have preferred a free-kick.

    60. The first change of the afternoon.

    Shelvey is on for Newcastle in place of the Sean Longstaff. The midfielder has covered a lot of ground this afternoon, and looks absolutely exhausted as he departs to appreciative applause.

    59. Ndombele fancies his chances of adding a bagging his second spectacular curler of the day.

    He cuts in from the left and goes for the far corner with his right foot, but this time doesn't get enough dip on his effort.

    56. The going has got tough for Newcastle – and when the going gets tough, the tough send for Jonjo Shelvey.

    54. Kane makes Clark look daft, not once but twice.

    First, he beats him to a high ball that the defender should never have been second best to, and then easily turns away from the Newcastle man as he desperately attempted to recover.

    In retaliation, Clark boots the striker over and receives a yellow card.

    52. Son goes a fraction too quickly as Skipp sends him clear on the left.

    The amount of space that Newcastle are gifting to some of the best attackers in the league is bizarre.

    50. Darlow makes a hash of coming for a corner, and completely misses his punch as Kane head off target. In fact, the Newcastle goalkeeper was closer to connecting with Kane's head than he was the ball, and can consider himself fortunate that he didn't concede a penalty.

    48. A brilliant take out of the sky from Reguilon is matched by the turn of pace he utilises to skip away from Manquillo.

    A cross for a fourth goal looks on the cards, but the Spaniard overdoes it with a miscued backheel that fails to reach Son.

    46. The home side get the action back underway at St James' Park, two goals behind and in the need of something spectacular if they are to come back to claim any points.

    They certainly have options in attack, the problem is that their defence is the worst in the Premier League.

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    THE ACTION RESTARTS!

    HALF-TIME STATS

    Five shots on target and four goals. Perhaps accurate attempts are the secret to success.

    HT: NEWCASTLE 1-3 SPURS

    It seems a long time ago now that Callum Wilson gave Newcastle a dream start. The striker's header, two minutes into his return, took the roof off St James' Park on their day of celebration. However, goals from Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son have Spurs firmly in the ascendency at the end of a first half most notable for a worrying incident involving a home supporter. As the clock approached 45 minutes, a fan in the East Stand was taken ill and required CPR from bystanders and medics. Fortunately, that person is now said to be stable in hospital.

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    THE FIRST HALF COMES TO AN END!

    45+9. The first half ends with tempers flared after Newcastle players – and referee Andre Marriner – refused to stop play after Emerson Royal had gone down injured. Saint-Maximin and Hojbjerg are particularly vocal in their views.

    45+6. Saint-Maximin tries to pull one back by plundering his way through. The Frenchman finds his route blocked so goes for a long ranger but it's well off target.

    45+3. Amid an understandably sombre atmosphere, Tottenham bag their third of the afternoon.

    It's a superbly-worked goal featuring all of the visitors' attacking players. Tanguy Ndombele starts the move before Lucas Moura skips away from his marker and pokes a pass through for Harry Kane.

    Confidence renewed, Kane races on to the ball, and then picks out Heung-min Son with a simple cross to the far post that the South Korean fires in.

    All too easy.

    GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!
    HEUNG-MIN SON ADDS A THIRD!!

    45+2. Applause rings around St James' Park to acknowledge the medical staff who assisted during the emergency as they make their way back to the dugout.

    45+1. The game restarts with a Spurs corner on the right, taken by Son and eventually headed away by Lascelles.

    THE TEAMS RETURN

    The players are back out and will undergo a three-minute warm-up before commencing with the first half.

    Meanwhile, the supporter involved has been removed from the stand on a stretcher and is on their way to the nearby hospital. The promising news filtering through is that they have been stabilised and we'll keep our fingers crossed for a speedy recovery.

    UPDATE

    A stadium announcement has just confirmed that the players will return to the field of play shortly, and will complete the first half after a short warm-up.
