FULL-TIME!
An emphatic victory for Spurs who have hit Newcastle for five and propelled themselves into the top four of the Premier League this evening! Conte's men were clinical and swept away their visitors in brutal fashion. Newcastle can take heart from their first half display, but will be left wondering how the game got away from them so quickly in the second half. It's finished here with Tottenham winning by five goals to one.
