Newcastle succumb 3-2 to Tottenham

New owners. The same problems.

Callum Wilson put Newcastle ahead with a header just 107 seconds into the club’s new era under Saudi ownership, but visiting Tottenham turned it around to win 3-2 in the Premier League on Sunday.

Newcastle have just three points from eight games, slumped in the relegation zone and unable to spend on new players until the transfer market opens in January.

The immediate change could be on the bench. Steve Bruce is still in command and completed his 1,000th game as manager – a milestone that was not mentioned in the presentation of the plans – but his days are numbered.

The Newcastle fans themselves began to chant that he was going to be fired.

It is somewhat uncertain whether Bruce will be able to reach the 1,001 match as manager for Newcastle when he visits Crystal Palace next Saturday.

“That will be decided by other people,” Bruce said. “If I were to read or see everything that has been said in the last week, I would not be here today, but my job is to get results.”

Tanguy Ndombele started Tottenham’s comeback in the 17th minute after a pass from Sergio Reguilón. The Spurs took the lead five minutes later when Harry Kane scored his first Premier goal of the season, flying the ball over goalkeeper Karl Darlow.

The game was stopped for 20 minutes, shortly before the end of the first half, when a spectator required medical treatment. The players withdrew from the court before returning to complete the first half.

Son Heung-min appeared to splice the center of Kane to increase the difference in the discounts of the first part.

Newcastle was further complicated by being outnumbered at 83. Jonjo Shelvey, who had joined for Sean Longstaff at 69, was sent off for card accumulation after knocking down Reguilón.

The hosts unexpectedly discounted with Eric Dier’s own goal, but Tottenham held on to link their second straight win.

Tottenham reached 15 points and ran in fifth place, four units behind leader Chelsea.

In the other Sunday game, Angelo Ogbonna’s goal in the 74th minute gave visiting West Ham a 1-0 win over Everton. The Italian center-back combed a ball for his 29th stoppage time – excluding penalties – since David Moyes took over the reins for a second spell as West Ham manager in December 2019.
