Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Newcastle are next in action against Brighton & Hove Albion on the road on Monday. Tottenham face Leicester at home in a crucial contest on Sunday.
Tottenham continue their recent resurgence by beating Newcastle United 3-1 this evening, securing back-to-back wins in the Premier League. Son Heung-min opened the scoring with a precise finish, but Matt Ritchie equalised for the home side in the second half. However, a brace from Harry Kane delivered the three points for Jose Mourinho's men, keeping them in the running for a European place next season.
90' + 3' Schar falls awkwardly on his shoulder and is helped off the field by the medical staff. It looks to be a serious injury for the Swiss.
90' + 2' Kane has scored two headers in one Premier League match for the first time.
J. Vertonghen
H. Kane
90' + 1' Kane makes way for Vertonghen for the closing stages.
90' There will be five minutes of added time.
H. Kane
90' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! KANE NOTCHES HIS SECOND!!!! 3-1 SPURS!!!! The visitors secure the three points this afternoon as Kane converts with a brave header from close range. He starts a brisk counter by releasing Lamela into the Newcastle half. The Argentine surges all the way into the box before weaving his way past Krafth. Lamela's strike is saved by Dubravka, but Kane is on hand with a diving header to score, taking a blow from Fernandez in the process.
88' Newcastle look for Saint-Maximin in every attack. However, his delivery lets him down this time as his cross fails to beat the first man.
86' OVER! Shelvey's free-kick is cleared as far as Almiron who goes for a spectacular volley, only to blast his effort over the bar.
M. Longstaff
N. Bentaleb
86' Bentaleb makes way for the home side and is replaced by Longstaff.
B. Davies
Yellow Card
85' Davies has to haul down Saint-Maximin to halt his charge. The referee books the Spurs left-back.
83' All of Newcastle's product in the final third is coming through Saint-Maximin. The Frenchman goes for goal from distance once again, but he hammers his effort well over the bar.
82' Saint-Maximin hammers a low delivery towards the box and Joelinton, but Sanchez tracks his progress to make the vital interception.
79' Schar is back on his feet and is going to play on. Newcastle need any defender they can get at the moment, with Lascelles out along with Florian Lejeune and Ciaran Clark.
77' Schar is down for the home side, which could be due to his collision with Kane. It does not look good for the Swiss.
76' Saint-Maximin launches another effort at goal, but on this occasion Lloris makes a comfortable stop.
H. Kane
Yellow Card
74' Kane jumps with Schar, but catches the defender with an arm. He goes into the book for his challenge.
73' Almiron and Joelinton combine to tee up Shelvey, but the midfielder can only scoop an effort straight at Lloris.

E. Lamela

S. Bergwijn
60' Bergwijn surges down the right and delivers a precise cross that Kane converts.
H. Kane
60' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! KANE PUTS SPURS BACK IN FRONT!!! The England captain is predatory in front of goal to nod Bergwijn's cross home. The Dutchman raids down the right and whips a pinpoint cross into the middle. Kane gets between Schar and Krafth and connects with a deft header that sails into the back of the net.
59' Saint-Maximin uses his speed to run at the Tottenham defence, but Aldeweireld holds firm to break up the attack.

M. Ritchie
56' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! RITCHIE SCORES A SCREAMER!!!!! 1-1!! Newcastle are level courtesy of a super strike from Ritchie. Lazaro's driving run creates the opening as he bustles into the Spurs box. Aurier sends his clearance straight to Ritchie, who blasts his effort with power from the left inside channel beyond Lloris in a flash. A brilliant effort from the Newcastle wing-back.

D. Yedlin
55' Lazaro replaces Yedlin for the home side on the right flank.
54' A blow for Spurs as Lucas is down, clutching his ankle. He requires treatment on his injury.
53' Ritchie has space and time to launch a dangerous cross in from the left flank. Yedlin makes a run into the box, but the ball just sails over his head and into the hands of Lloris.
51' Saint-Maximin twists one way then the other in the final third following a marauding run, but he gets closed down before he can strike at goal.
49' Aurier makes a good run down the right flank and he fires a low ball across the face of goal, but there's no one there in a blue shirt to pounce on the opportunity.
48' Lo Celso swings a dangerous corner in from the right flank on his left foot. Lucas attacks it, but Yedlin does just enough to disrupt the forward.
47' Lucas threads the ball through to Kane in the right inside channel. He cuts the ball back towards the penalty spot, forcing Schar to clear behind under pressure.
46' We're back underway at St James' Park.
Steve Bruce will not be too disappointed with his side's performance. They made one error at the back and paid the price. Other than that they've looked lively in the final third and should at least be level. There's plenty of reasons to be encouraged from the Magpies' perspective at half-time.
Tottenham lead Newcastle 1-0 at the break at St James' Park courtesy of Son Heung-min's strike. Spurs capitalised on a mistake by Fabian Schar, which allowed Giovanni Lo Celso to tee up the forward. He squeezed his effort past Martin Dubravka inside the left post to put the visitors ahead. Son was denied a second by the Newcastle keeper following a strike from distance. Dwight Gayle was inches away from an equaliser, but saw his header hit the inside of the post. The game remains in the balance at the interval.
45' + 2' WIDE! Schar's clearance from the Spurs' free-kick falls to Lucas. He takes on a strike first time on the volley, but can only smash his effort well wide of the post.
45' + 1' Schar puts his team under pressure at the back with another mistake. It forces Saint-Maximin to challenge Lucas, resulting a free-kick for the visitors.
45' There will be three minutes of added time.
42' OFF THE POST! Newcastle are inches away from a leveller as Gayle's header strikes the post. Shelvey whips a dangerous cross towars the near post from the right flank. Gayle stoops to flick his attempt across goal. Lloris is beaten, but the ball strikes the inside of the post and bounces to safety for the visitors.
40' SAVE! Saint-Maximin cuts in from left flank after collecting Almiron's pass. He fires low towards the left-bottom corner, forcing Lloris to turn it past the post.

T. Alderweireld
Yellow Card
30' Alderweireld catches Ritchie late and goes into the book.

He square up Yedlin before cutting inside to place his effort just inside the post away from Dubravka.
25' We're back underway at St James' Park.
24' The game is paused for the first cooling break.
23' Tottenham work the ball in and around the box with a series of neat passes, but Sissoko sees his cross blocked from the right flank by Krafth.
21' Shelvey plays a sublime cross-field pass towards Gayle, but the ball just evades him for a clear strike. He gains possession to keep the attack alive, but drills his effort straight into the legs of Sanchez.
20' Yedlin makes an important challenge at the back to stop Son in his track after he was teed up by Kane.
18' Tottenham are yet to threaten the Newcastle goal through their main men. The visitors have to figure out a way to get Kane and Son into the contest.
16' CHANCE! Newcastle work the ball down the left as Almiron feeds Ritchie, who cuts back on his right foot to swing a cross into the box. Shelvey arrives late in the area and has a free header, but he can only direct his effort over the bar.

7' OVER! Ritchie cuts the resulting corner back to Almiron to strike from the edge of the box again. However, this time he sends his effort harmlessly over the bar.
6' BLOCK! A cross from the right from Krafth falls into the path of Almiron. He strikes at power with his left foot on the half-volley from the edge of the box, but Sanchez puts his body on the line to divert it wide.
4' Saint-Maximin cuts in from the left flank and shapes to shoot. He fakes one strike to try to get closer to goal, but Lo Celso makes the challenge that halts his charge.
3' The visitors opt to play the ball short and work it around the pitch, but the Magpies hold firm and break up the play before Spurs can threaten.
2' Bentaleb pulls back Lucas on the charge and Spurs win a free-kick on the right flank.
1' We're underway at St James' Park.
Newcastle are looking to record their first Premier League double over Spurs since 2015-16, following their 1-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in August.
Tottenham are unchanged from their win over Arsenal last time out. Aurier has made himself available for selection after the death of his brother over the weekend. Elsewhere, Son plays behind Kane in the final third, while Lucas and Sissoko operate on the flanks.
Newcastle have made three changes to their side from their defeat to Watford. Krafth, Yedlin and Bentaleb all come into the fold. Manquillo drops to the bench, while Rose is ineligible against his former club. Skipper Jamaal Lascelles misses out due to injury.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Jan Vertonghen, Erik Lamela, Ryan Sessegnon, Paulo Gazzaniga, Steven Bergwijn, Oliver Skipp, Gedson Fernandes, Japhet Tanganga, Harvey White.
TOTTENHAM (4-4-2): Hugo Lloris; Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies; Moussa Sissoko, Giovanni Lo Celso, Harry Winks, Lucas Moura; Son Heung-min, Harry Kane.
NEWCASTLE UNITED SUBS: Joelinton, Yoshinori Muto, Javier Manquillo, Valentin Lazaro, Karl Darlow, Christian Atsu, Matthew Longstaff, Thomas Allan, Jack Young.
NEWCASTLE UNITED (4-4-1-1): Martin Dubravka; Emil Krafth, Fabian Schar, Federico Fernandez, DeAndre Yedlin; Allan Saint-Maximin, Jonjo Shelvey, Nabil Bentaleb, Matt Ritchie; Miguel Almiron; Dwight Gayle.
Tottenham earned a vital win over Arsenal in the north London derby last time out. The result lifted Spurs above Arsenal, although their hopes of Champions League football next season are all but over. Jose Mourinho still has to pick up his team in pursuit of the Europa League. They're unbeaten in their last three matches since suffering a 3-1 defeat to Sheffield United. However, it will take a strong effort to beat the Magpies on the road.
Newcastle's solid run of form since the restart has dipped over the last two matches. They were crushed 5-0 at the hands of Manchester City before losing 2-1 to Watford last time out, conceding two penalties at Vicarage Road. Steve Bruce will not want to see his side's season peter out with a whimper. They've got a strong record at St James' Park of late and will be looking to do the double over Spurs this term.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Newcastle United and Tottenham at St James' Park.
