Wrong-footed for Gouffran’s goal by the deflection off Dawson but made a superb save late in the day to preserve the lead.
Coped well enough on the ground but taken out of the game by Coloccini’s Hollywood ball for Cisse’s first-half chance.
Newcastle’s best attacks came down their right and the young full-back, more natural on the other flank, was unable to stop them. Under less pressure in the second half but replaced by Assou-Ekotto for the final 20 minutes.
Unlucky to have Gouffran’s shot divert off him for the Newcastle equaliser and had Cisse in his pocket.
Unable to really stamp his authority on the game but looked frustrated that some of his team-mates were not on the same wavelength. Withdrawn in stoppage time for Livermore.
Struggled to deal with the energy of Sissoko and found it hard to impose himself on the dogged likes of Perch and Jonas. Squandered a good attacking opportunity midway through the second half.
Spurs’ most threatening player in the first half, making his first start in the No.10 role. Curled a dangerous effort just over in the 20th minute after scuffing one earlier on but much quieter in the second period and replaced by Adebayor.
Started in style by depositing a well-placed free kick after just five minutes, though the wall might have put up more of a fight. Did not turn that into another barnstormer but, even below 100 per cent, embarrassed the Newcastle defence for his second, sprinting between the centre-backs and scuffing his shot through Krul's legs. Nearly had a third but for the Dutchman's fine saves and a snatched attempt at the death.
A bit flat compared to his recent performances. Got little purchase from Santon but more threatening when the Italian got too far forward and he could look to attack Coloccini instead.
Too blunt and predictable in his attempts to lead the line and somewhat lucky not to be the first man substituted.
Let down by his wall in the main for Bale’s early free kick but let the winger finish through his legs for the second. Prevented the hat-trick with an excellent save, though.
As strong and committed as ever but somewhat scruffy. Earned the anger of the home crowd by bringing Bale to the floor in the second half. Taken off for Tiote after the second Spurs goal.
More of the same energy and endeavour down the left flank that has characterised his season, though struggled to get the right cross off.
Given no trouble by Dempsey and even ventured forward, libero-style, at times. Took Caulker out of the reckoning with a great ball from deep towards Cisse and deserved better from the striker’s attempted header. Strong throughout until Bale beat him with ease for his second, a letdown after a fine performance.
Impressed in his defensive positioning, keeping a better eye on Bale than many others have this season, and looked to push forward when possible. His crossing was responsible for one very promising counter breaking down, however.
Drew a save from Lloris with a thumping shot from range but mostly stuck to the task of keeping Dempsey quiet, which he did relatively easily. Let himself down for Bale's second, however, in the wrong place to shut the Welshman down.
Flitted between the flanks as one of the key figures in Newcastle’s revival after a poor start. Deserved his goal despite the deflection as a culmination of a thrilling move. Sad for both him and his team that a nasty-looking leg injury forced him off 10 minutes after the break.
Unable to produce the magic pass but game and energetic, attempting shots from range and crosses from deep.
His Newcastle honeymoon continued with a fine, willing effort in support of Cisse. Powered onto a through-ball down the inside-right channel to set up Gouffran for the equaliser.
His pass down the right may go underappreciated in its importance to the move that ended in Gouffran's equaliser but the Argentine was otherwise unspectacular. Taken off late for Ameobi.
Might have done better with a headed chance after 19 minutes - it was telling that Newcastle looked more dangerous when they attacked with their midfield rather than their striker.
Replaced Naughton midway through the second half but made no obvious difference.
Whether his omission from the starting XI was political or not, Spurs missed his presence up front in the early stages more than they actually exploited it when he did finally make his entrance. Proved a good distraction for Bale's runs, though.
