FULL TIME: Newcastle United 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur
Joelinton is shown a yellow card for a foul on Ndombele in the centre of the pitch and that might be that. Newcastle United's late fightback will still see them suffer defeat.
There will be four minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the match.
- Own-goalEric DierTottenham Hotspur
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 2 (90 mins - Eric Dier OG) Tottenham Hotspur 3. The Magpies have given themselves a lifeline late on here! Dier couldn't sort out his feet and he deflects a freekick delivery into his own net! Can Newcastle United find a late, late equaliser? They have a chance!
This started off as such a party for Newcastle United after they took the lead after just two minutes, but it's all gone a bit flat. Tottenham Hotspur have dominated this match.
One wonders what business Newcastle United are lining up ahead of the January transfer window. The club now has great resources. Will they use them to bring players to the club in January?
Into the wall! Kane takes the freekick on the edge of the Newcastle United penalty area, but that was straight at the wall. The home team are just waiting for this to be all over now.
- Red cardJonjo ShelveyNewcastle United
SENT OFF! Shelvey is shown a second yellow card for bringing down Reguilon who was bursting into the box. That is a short cameo from the Newcastle United midfielder.
Shot from Fraser! The ball sat up nicely for Fraser just inside the penalty area, but the Scotland international's strike comes off Dier. Newcastle want a handball, but nope.
No penalty! Tottenham believe they should have a penalty kick for what they saw as a handball from Ritchie, but the officials have taken a look using VAR and nothing is given.
Tottenham’s preparations for this match certainly weren’t helped by the number of players they had involved in South American World Cup qualifiers during the week. They were playing games on Thursday night!
- Yellow cardJonjo ShelveyNewcastle United
Shelvey is shown a yellow card after hacking down Ndombele.
- OffJoe WillockNewcastle United
- OnJacob MurphyNewcastle United
And here's Murphy for the Magpies as well.
- OffCallum WilsonNewcastle United
- OnRyan FraserNewcastle United
Here are the changes for the home side - Fraser is on.
'We want Brucey out,' comes the change from the Gallowgate End. The current Newcastle United manager isn't a very popular figure with the fans in the North East.
It looks like Bruce might be about to make a couple changes off the bench with Fraser and Murphy getting ready. Time is running out for Newcastle United to mount a fightback!
Bruce has quality to work with in his squad. Newcastle United are a lot better than they have shown over the first two months of the season. Can they start stringing some results together? Not on this basis!
Willock hasn’t quite been able to reach the heights of last season since making the permanent move from Arsenal in the summer. That scoring run was rather incredible!
Romero has impressed for Tottenham today, though. You get the feeling that the Argentine is the best natural defender at the club, it's just taken him time to settle.
Questions have also been asked about the selections Nuno has made in defence so far this season with Cristian Romero strangely playing only a bit-part role after his summer move from Atalanta.
And now Hayden enters the book for a foul.
The accusation that has been levelled at Nuno in recent weeks is that his midfield selections are too cautious. That the Portuguese coach needs to show more ambition in the middle. He’s done that today!
There isn't a sense of a Newcastle United comeback coming any time soon. Indeed, if there's going to be another goal in this game you get the feeling it'll be a Spurs goal!
Willock goes to ground! The Newcastle United midfielder goes down inside the area and looks to the referee, but there wasn't enough contact for that to be a penalty kick. Nothing given.
There are a lot of questions about Tottenham’s midfield unit at the moment. Nuno has a lot of good options in that position, but has yet to find the right formula in the centre of the pitch. This has looked much better, though!
- OffSean LongstaffNewcastle United
- OnJonjo ShelveyNewcastle United
A change for the home side - here comes Shelvey!
That wasn't far away! Good work from Kane down the right side saw the ball sprayed out to Ndombele, but the French midfielder's powerful strike flashes just over the Newcastle bar!
- Yellow cardCiaran ClarkNewcastle United
Clark is the latest player to be shown a yellow card by the referee.
Between Saint-Maximin and Wilson, Newcastle United might just have the individual quality to stay in the Premier League this season, but both players have spent time on the sidelines!
If Newcastle United are to drag their way away from the relegation zone this season, you get the feeling it will be on the back of Saint-Maximim’s performance. He’s at another level to the rest of the squad.
Newcastle United have yet to win a game in the Premier League this season. The Magpies are better than they have shown so far over the early stage of the 2021/22 campaign so far.
Tottenham Hotspur have won five of their last seven visits to St James’ Park to face Newcastle United. Nuno’s team look set to make it six wins out of eight visits this evening.
There has actually been some speculation that Newcastle United could target Kane as one of their first big signings of the PIF era. Comparisons have been drawn with Alan Shearer.
Kane endured a difficult international break. He was hooked by Gareth Southgate with 15 minutes left to play against Hungary with the scoreline tied at 1-1. Kane is out of form, but has shown glimpses of his old self here!
What sort of second half will we see? Newcastle United started well, but Spurs soon took a grip of the match. Is there any way back from the Magpies? They trail 3-1.
The second half is under way! Tottenham Hotspur have a 3-1 lead over Newcastle United in this Premier League fixture.
- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME: Newcastle United 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur. A protracted first half comes to an end at St James' Park. It started so well for the Magpies, but Spurs have dominated on balance.
Chance for Saint-Maximin! The Newcastle United winger cuts inside on to his right foot off the left wing, but his shot flashes wide of the post when he should have hit the target.
There have been signs of the Kane-Son partnership being back to its best this evening. That could be a game changer for Tottenham. That could help them turn things around.
- GoalHeung-Min SonTottenham Hotspur
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 1 Tottenham Hotspur 3 (45+5 mins - Son Heung-min). Spurs have scored a third! A great passing move involving Moura and Ndombele saw Kane threaded in behind and the Tottenham striker got his head up to square the ball to Son who had the simple finish.
Play has resumed! Ok, so the match is back under way at St James' Park. There's a strange atmosphere, understandably so, after that stoppage, but the players have to focus on the game again.
There will be seven minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the first half.
Supporter has been stabilised! Good news from St James' Park as it is now being reported that the fan in the stand has now been stabilised. The players are out to warm up ahead of a restart.
The players are now being taken into the dressing rooms.
MATCH SUSPENDED! There's no play taking place at the moment while the medical staff provide treatment to the fan in the stands. A lot of concern around St James' Park.
Medical emergency! There's an incident in the stands taking place and so play on the pitch has stopped. It looks like the referee is going to take the players into the tunnel for the time being.
It feels like Newcastle United need the half time interval here. They started the match very well, but Tottenham have taken a grip of things. Bruce surely needs to make some changes.
Off the crossbar! Inches away from being a third goal for Tottenham! The corner kick delivery from Son was a good one, Moura got up higher than anyone else, but his header comes off the woodwork!
Saint-Maximin gives Newcastle United great threat on the rapid counter attack. The French winger has so much pace, but is also one of the best dribblers in the Premier League.
This is a bit better from Newcastle United. Tottenham Hotspur had taken a grip of the game after scoring the second goal, but the hosts are finding more space on the counter.
What a finish this was!
There's the first booking of the match and it's shown to Longstaff for a foul on Moura.
Miguel Almiron is missing for Newcastle United this afternoon. He played for Paraguay on Thursday night and so wasn’t able to train with his club teammates on Friday.
Chance for Newcastle! Wilson was released in behind, he was forced wide, but his pass into Saint-Maximin was a decent one. The Frenchman just couldn't make a connection, though!
A defeat here to a team that starts the match second bottom of the Premier League table would only increase the pressure on Nuno. Many aren’t convinced he’s the right man for Spurs.
PICTURE: Kane has scored his first league goal of the season!
All eyes are on Newcastle United this afternoon, with good reason, but Spurs also need three points. They have suffered an underwhelming start to the season and must turn things around.
Spurs have done a good job of turning this match around after a dreadful start which saw them fall behind after just two minutes. The early adrenaline has worn off for the hosts.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 1 Tottenham Hotspur 2 (24 mins - Harry Kane). The goal is given! Kane was released in behind the Newcastle defence, he lifted the finish over Darlow and the goal is given after it was initially disallowed for offside! Manquillo was keeping the Spurs centre forward onside.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... NO! Kane has the ball in the back of the net, but the Tottenham Hotspur striker has been flagged for offside! The VAR are going to take a good look at this!
However, Tottenham Hotspur have conceded two or more goals in six of their last seven away matches in the Premier League. The North London club have a point to prove here!
The omens aren’t so good for Newcastle United. They are without a win in their last seven league matches. The Magpies look to be in a relegation fight at the foot of the table.
Questions have been asked of Ndombele over the course of his career as a Tottenham Hotspur player, but that's the sort of quality he has. The Frenchman has an eye for goal!
- GoalTanguy N'DombeleTottenham Hotspur
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 1 Tottenham Hotspur 1 (18 mins - Tanguy Ndombele). What a way to equalise! Kane brought the ball down, passed inside to Ndombele, the Spurs midfielder had time to assess the situation and whips a finish into the top corner of the net! Brilliant finish by the Frenchman!
PICTURE: Spurs have work to do!
Wasteful! Tottenham worked a dangerous situation with Moura played to the byline on the right side, but the delivery from the Brazilian winger was far too strong. That was a waste.
Hojbjerg takes aim! The space opened up for the Tottenham midfielder 20 yards out from goal, but his strike was never really going to find the back of the net from there.
Of course, the manager’s job at Newcastle United is now an incredibly attractive one. They are now the richest club in the world following the takeover. They can achieve big things.
A number of potential replacements have been mentioned. Antonio Conte, Frank Lampard, Brendan Rodgers, Steven Gerrard - will any of them be appointed at St James’ Park soon?
Bruce was widely seen as a manifestation of the Ashley reign. He favours bare minimums football. However, there are those who believe he deserves more respect for the job he’s done.
There was a lot of speculation that Bruce would be sacked ahead of this match, but he is still in his position as Newcastle United manager. How many games will he get in the job, though?
The atmosphere around St James’ Park sounds incredible this afternoon. These fans had to suffer for a long time under the reign of Ashley. Now, they are dreaming of better times!
Did Tottenham even touch the ball before Wilson scored the opening goal? Newcastle United have started on the front foot and they now have the advantage! What a start to the game!
- GoalCallum WilsonNewcastle United
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Newcastle United 1 (2 mins - Callum Wilson) Tottenham Hotspur 0. What a start! Newcastle United have opened the scoring after just two minutes! The ball was played to the right side, the cross was played by Manquilo and Wilson got in front of his man to head in from close range!
What sort of match will we get this afternoon? Of course, all the build up has been about the Saudi-backed takeover of Newcastle United, but now the Magpies must actually perform!
The match is under way! It's Newcastle United against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League!
Okay, here we go. We are about to get under way at St James' Park. Kick off is moments away!
Legitimate questions have been asked of the Saudi Arabian involvement in the takeover of Newcastle United, but there's no denying St James' Park seems electrified!
Not long until kick off at St James' Park. It's quite the atmosphere at this famous, old stadium. The Newcastle United fans are excited following the end of the Mike Ashley reign.
I'm Graham Ruthven and you can catch me on Twitter ahead of the match to let me know your thoughts. Can Newcastle United claim three points against Spurs? Tweet me - @grahamruthven!
A new era! Today marks the first match Newcastle United will play since they were bought by a Saudi Arabia-backed consortium last week. This is the start of a new generation!
Wilson is back! There's good news for Newcastle United with Callum Wilson back in the starting lineup having missed the last few weeks of action through injury. That's a big boost!
TEAM NEWS: Newcastle United - Darlow; Manquillo, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie; Hayden, S.Longstaff; Willock, Saint-Maximin; Joelinton, Wilson. /// Tottenham - Lloris; Emerson, Dier, Romero, Reguilon; Skipp, Hojbjerg, Ndombele; Lucas, Son, Kane.
