Goal
Tottenham Hotspur
54' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! KANE GETS ONE BACK!!!! 2-1!!!! Tottenham are back in the game as Kane heads home from a corner at the back post. Son curls a dangerous cross into the box from the left flank that Lenglet flicks on. It reaches Kane at the back post and he gets the wrong side of Trippier to nod into the back of the net. There is a VAR check for offside, but the goal stands.

46' We're back under way in torrential rain at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham played well in the early stages of the game and should have been ahead through Son Heung-min, but he was wasteful in front of goal. Newcastle have been clinical at the other end of the pitch and have the best defence in the league. The Magpies are 45 minutes away from a statement win.
Newcastle hold a 2-0 lead at the break against Tottenham courtesy of goals from Callum Wilson and Miguel Almiron. The visitors took the lead after a mistake by Hugo Lloris as he ran directly into Wilson losing possession before the forward clipped a strike into the net on his left foot. Almiron capitalised on poor defending to race through and finish in style to notch his sixth of the season, putting Eddie Howe's men in complete command.
45' + 4' HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 0-2 NEWCASTLE
45' + 3' BLOCK! Son latches on to a ball over the top, but canot bring it down to fire at goal. He offloads back to Lenglet, who sees his left-footed strike charged down.
45' There will be three minutes of added time.
44' Lloris takes another poor first touch from a routine backpass. Fortunately for Spurs, there is no one near to capitalise. The Tottenham skipper is all over the place here.
42' Newcastle have scored 6 goals in the last 15 minutes of the first half, only Manchester City (9) have scored more in the Premier League this season.
S. Longstaff
Assist
Newcastle United
40' Longstaff finds Almiron, who does the rest with a special run and finish.
M. Almirón
Goal
Newcastle United
40' WHAT A GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALMIRON DOUBLES NEWCASTLE'S LEAD!!!! 2-0!!!!! The forward produces a brilliant run and finish on his left foot to put Newcastle in command. Lloris does not cover himself in glory once again as he sends a poor pass out from the back that puts Sessegnon under pressure. Longstaff works a pass to Almiron, who fends off Sessegnon and then surges past Lenglet. There is still work to do, but he fires his left-footed effort under Lloris and into the net. Another poor moment for the Tottenham keeper.
40' Almiron and Longstaff work a one-two down the right flank, but the latter clips his cross over Wilson's head.
38' Joelinton launches a brilliant strike at goal from the edge of the box that Lloris has to turn away from goal, although he was offside anyway.

35' Sessegnon raids down the left flank and has space to lift a cross towards Kane and Son, but he overhits his delivery.

R. Bentancur
Yellow Card
Tottenham Hotspur
31' Bentancur is furious with the referee for the decision and goes into the book.

Goal
Newcastle United
31' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! WILSON SCORES AFTER A TERRIBLE MISTAKE BY LLORIS!!!!1-0!!!!! Lloris races off his line to clear the ball ahead of Wilson following a clip over the top from Schar, but runs right into him. Wilson gathers the loose ball and curls a left-footed strike over Dier into an empty net. A huge moment in the game.
30' SAVE! Kane bursts down the left flank and opens up room for a strike at goal. He fires low and hard on his left foot, but Pope repels the effort with his boot.
28' Kane turns to find space on the edge of the box, but he drills his left-footed strike straight at Botman.
26' Wilson remains down for a minute after his strike after getting a boot on his foot, but he is fine to continue.
25' Botman wins a header from a Trippier free-kick into the Spurs box. Wilson attacks it with a left-footed strike, but it loops harmlessly into the hands of Lloris.
24' BLOCKS! The resulting corner causes havoc in the box, but both Bentancur and Dier fails to find the target amid desperate defending from the visitors.
23' BLOCK! Skipp makes a charge forward from the middle of the park and releases Sessegnon in space. He drills a low strike towards goal that Schar has to divert behind.
21' Spurs clear the resulting corner, but Almiron lines up an ambitious strike from the edge of the box that he skews well wide.
19' Dier almost scores an own goal as he places a firm backpass towards Lloris that catches the keeper unaware. Fortunately for Spurs, the ball trickles wide of the target, although they still have to defend a corner.
17' Newcastle have had the majority of the possession, but the home side have found gaps in their lines to create openings at goal.
15' Sessegnon takes on Trippier and gets the better of the full-back before clipping a cross into the box. Botman makes an important header to clear it away from Kane. Bissouma gathers and launches a strike at goal, only to send his effort over the top.
13' Kane looks to release Sessegnon down the left flank, but as the wing-back drills a cross into the middle, the flag goes up very late for offside.
11' SON HAS TO SCORE! Kane plays Son through on goal in the inside-right channel, but he clips a tame effort towards the target, allowing Pope to save and Trippier to sweep up the danger off the line. A huge chance spurned from the forward.
9' OVER! Son lines up an ambitious strike at goal from 25 yards, only to smash his left-footed effort well over the top. That one didn't have a chance.
8' Lloris makes a gamble to race off his line and punch a header from Burn away from goal. He does not make clean contact, but the ball does not fall for Botman and Bentancur manages to work it away.
7' Longstaff makes a good burst down the right flank and wins a corner for the visitors to send men forward into the box.
6' Schar heads a cross from the right flank from Trippier towards goal, forcing Skipp to hook a clearance away. Newcastle have made a good response to Spurs' strong start.
4' Schar curls a ball behind the Spurs defence for the run of Joelinton. Emerson does brilliantly to prevent the Brazilian firing at goal as Newcastle's appeal for a penalty is turned down. Almiron gathers a loose ball, but sees his effort deflected wide.
3' CHANCE! Kane threads the needle on a Tottenham counter as he releases Emerson down the right. Emerson works the ball to Skipp, who finds Son on the edge of the box. The forward curls a strike at goal that sails narrowly wide of the right post.
1' SAVE! Bentancur wins possession and releases Son to charge through the Newcastle lines. He reaches the edge of the box before pulling the trigger on a left-footed strike that Pope saves.
1' We're under way at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham Hotspur have won seven of their last 10 Premier League matches against Newcastle United (D2 L1), winning both last season and scoring eight goals in the process (3-2 away, 5-1 home).
Newcastle have made just one change to their side from their win over Everton during the week. Willock slots into the midfield in place of Murphy, who drops to the bench. Joelinton is expected to push forward to support Wilson and Almiron in the final third.
Spurs have made five changes to their side that was beaten by Manchester United last time out. Sanchez and Lenglet come into the back four in place of Cristian Romero, who misses out, and Davies, who drops to the bench. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg ends a run of 32 straight starts as he misses out with an injury and is replaced by Skipp. Sessegnon and Emerson are restored in place of Doherty and Perisic. Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski remain sidelined with injuries.
NEWCASTLE UNITED SUBS: Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey, Jamal Lewis, Matt Targett, Loris Karius, Javier Manquillo, Chris Wood, Ryan Fraser, Jacob Murphy.
NEWCASTLE UNITED (4-3-3): Nick Pope; Kieran Trippier, Sven Botman, Fabian Schar, Dan Burn; Sean Longstaff, Bruno Guimaraes, Joe Willock; Miguel Almiron, Callum Wilson, Joelinton.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Matt Doherty, Bryan Gil, Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Djed Spence, Japhet Tanganga, Lucas Moura, Ben Davies, Harvey White.
TOTTENHAM (3-5-2): Hugo Lloris; Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Clement Lenglet; Emerson, Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bissouma, Oliver Skipp, Ryan Sessegnon; Harry Kane, Son Heung-min.
Newcastle have been outstanding this season, losing only once in their campaign. Eddie Howe's men kept up their push at the top of the table with a victory over Everton during the week courtesy of a stunner from Miguel Almiron. The Magpies have the best defence in the Premier League this term, conceding only nine goals in 11 matches. It will be a challenge against Harry Kane and company, but one that could send out a statement in their bid to reach the European places.
Tottenham suffered a setback in their strong start to the campaign, losing 2-0 at the hands of Manchester United during the week. Antonio Conte's men were not at the races against the Red Devils and need to respond after Manchester City beat Brighton and Hove Albion, although an opportunity has arisen today after Arsenal were held by Southampton. Spurs can close within two points of their rivals with a victory today, although it will be a tough ask against a resilient Newcastle team.
