Hurricane Kane in action
Pressed by the need to win, Newcastle started better, albeit with less ball possession. But offensive actions, however, took more danger. And he almost saw the scoreboard opened on 19 minutes.
After a long throw, which caught Tottenham’s defense off guard, Dwight Gayle had a chance to score, but stopped twice at Hugo Lloris.
The pressure took effect minutes later.
After an error in Sanchez’s ball, Longstaff found Joelinton at the right end of the area. The Brazilian straightened up and hit the goalkeeper’s exit.
As the summary of the season for Tottenham has been: in the pressure, he calls Kane.
Two minutes after Newcastle’s goal, the striker took advantage of the huge vacillation of the opponent’s defense and showed opportunism to make everything equal in the match.
Without learning the lesson of the first goal, the defense of the Magpies continued to make room for Harry Kane. And shirt number 10 remained lethal.
After receiving a precise shot from Ndombélé, the center forward advanced in the area and gave a strong cross shot, with no chance of defense for Dúbravka, turning the score.
As in the initial stage, Newcastle gave the ball to Tottenham and bet on speeding to try to achieve equality. The chances of danger, however, were still slim.
At the first good opportunity, Joelinton had the opportunity to score again, but narrowly missed.
Taking advantage of Tottenham’s little effectiveness in the match, Newcastle reached equality in one of the moments of little Spurs defensive organization with Willock, in the 40th minute of the second half.
After this weekend’s game, Newcastle will return to the field next Sunday (11), when they will face the Burnley visiting Turf Moor. Tottenham, on the same day, will face the classic against Manchester United, in London.
