Thanks for joining our commentary today. Until next time, goodbye.
Both teams are back in action on Thursday in the Premier League. Newcastle face struggling Everton on the road, while Tottenham host Manchester United.
Newcastle take a huge stride towards securing Champions League football with an outstanding performance to defeat Tottenham 6-1 at St James' Park. The Magpies did the damage in an incredible 21-minute spell in the first half, scoring five goals. Jacob Murphy got his side on their way by converting a rebound before Joelinton notched a second. Murphy scored a stunner from distance to notch Newcastle's third within nine minutes. Alexander Isak found the net twice in two minutes to pour on the agony for the visitors. Harry Kane got a goal back early in the second half for Spurs, but Callum Wilson restored the five-goal advantage with his first touch to ensure that the Magpies ended the game on a high note.
90' + 1' Willock latches on to Almiron's cutback and fires at goal, but his effort is charged down by Dier and into the grasp of Forster.

61' Sanchez skips past Joelinton, but Guimaraes gets back for home side to block his cross back off the defender for a goal-kick.
58' Perisic brings down Longstaff down the right flank and hands the home side a free-kick, but Burn fouls Dier in turn from the resulting set-piece.
55' It has been a calmer second half than the first inside St James' Park. Tottenham have given themselves an element of pride with a goal back, but there's still a long time to play here.
53' Burn has a free header at goal from the resulting corner, but his header strikes Longstaff in the six-yard box in an offside position. That effort from Burn was heading in before it struck his team-mate

47' Isak challenges a cross from Guimaraes at the back post, but he can only head his effort over the bar.
47' Perisic and Dier fail to communicate and it allows Longstaff to almost nip in, but his effort is charged down.
46' We're back under way at St James' Park.
F. Forster
H. Lloris
46' A notable change for Spurs at the break as their captain and keeper Lloris is withdrawn for Forster.
Tottenham were embarrassing in the first half and are simply playing for pride, if they can even salvage that. It is certainly a day to forget for Cristian Stellini and his team.
Newcastle scored five goals inside 21 minutes to to take a dominant 5-0 lead into the break against Tottenham. The Magpies were relentless and took the lead after 62 seconds when Jacob Murphy turned home a strike on the rebound. Joelinton got a deserved second three minutes later before a Murphy stunner made it three inside 10 minutes. Alexander Isak then took his turn to torment the visitors, collecting a sublime Joe Willock pass to notch his first before he slotted an effort past Hugo Lloris to cap an incredible opening burst from the hosts to put them on course for a statement win.
45' + 2' WIDE! Murphy dances through the Tottenham defence once more, but on this occasion he places his left-footed strike wide of the left post.
45' There will be two minutes of added time.
45' Son has space on the break and he surges into the Newcastle half, only to see his pass towards Kane intercepted with ease.
43' CLOSE! Newcastle almost make it six as Longstaff drills a strike towards goal that knicks off Romero's beat and travels inches wide of the left post.
41' Willock surges through the Spurs midfield on a driving run and fires at goal from 25 yards, but his effort is deflected over the top Hojbjerg.
40' Longstaff capitalises on a mistake by Romero and is then wiped out by the defender. The referee plays advantage, but Willock hammers his effort over the bar.
39' The Newcastle fans are bring out the oles as the Magpies work the ball around the visitors with ease. This is embarrassing for Spurs.
36' Lloris continues to struggle at the back as he slices a clearance into touch. Tottenham's confidence is at rock-bottom.
O. Skipp
Yellow Card
34' Skipp charges in on Guimaraes and he gets booked for the challenge, which leaves the Newcastle man on the deck.
32' Tottenham are simply playing for pride at the moment. Newcastle have taken their foot off the accelerator after their lightning start. But, given the fragility of the Spurs defence, you get the feeling there will be more goals.
30' Porro works the ball to Son in the final third and he feeds Kane, but the forward can only send a tame left-footed strike towards goal.
D. Kulusevski
Yellow Card
28' Kulusevski catches Willock with an outstretched boot and goes into the book.
26' A blemish for Newcastle as Bruno takes a knock and requires treatment on the field. The Brazilian will not want to leave the field.
25' Newcastle have taken a 5-0 lead within 21 minutes, the second-earliest a side has done so in Premier League history, after Man City v Watford in September 2019 (18th minute).
D. Sánchez
P. Sarr
23' Sarr is withdrawn, but it could have been any defender for the visitors. Sanchez, who was booed last week, enters the action.
S. Longstaff
21' Longstaff offloads the ball to Isak inside the Spurs box and he finds the bottom-left corner.
A. Isak
21' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!! ISAK MAKES IT FIVE!!!!!!! Newcastle are running absoutely riot in St James' Park and Isak has his second. The Magpies work the ball around the final third before Isak collects and hammers his strike through Lloris. The keeper gets a hand to the ball and should keep it out, but he fails to prevent it finding the back of the net.
J. Willock
19' Willock produces one of the passes of the season to release Isak in behind the Spurs backline before Isak applies the finish.
A. Isak
19' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! ISAK MAKES IT FOUR!!!!! 4-0!!!! WHAT IS GOING ON!!! Newcastle score their fourth inside 20 minutes as Willock releases Isak with a brilliant pass behind the Spurs defence before the Swede applies the perfect finish. Willock produces a special offload with the outside of his boot and Isak takes it in stride and fires low and hard into the bottom-left corner.
17' Newcastle build down the right flank and former Tottenham full-back Tripper lifts a cross into the box that is repelled behind for a corner.
15' Spurs are all over the place after Newcastle's fast start to the contest. The Magpies can simply manage the game from this point.
13' WIDE! Kane latches on to a cutback from Skipp on the edge of the box and fires at goal, but he sends his curling effort wide of the left post. Tottenham needed that one to go in.
11' Newcastle are only the sixth side in Premier League history to score three goals within the opening 9 minutes of a Premier League match, and the first since Man City vs Burnley in April 2010.
F. Schär
9' Schar wins a challenge against Son and the ball falls into the path of Murphy, who scores a stunner.
J. Murphy
9' WHAT A GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!! MURPHY LAUNCHES A SUPER STRIKE INTO THE TOP-LEFT CORNER!!!!! 3-0 NEWCASTLE!!!!! Newcastle and Murphy are in dreamland as the winger blasts a strike from 25 yards past Lloris. Son loses the ball all too easily to Schar and the loose ball falls to Murphy. He powers a right-footed strike at goal that soars away from the Spurs keeper into the back of the net.
F. Schär
6' Schar floats a simple ball over the top that finds Joelinton in acres of room and he does the rest with a sublime touch and finish.
6' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! JOELINTON MAKES IT TWO IN SIX MINUTES!!!!! 2-0!!!!! The Magpies extend their lead through a simple strike from Joelinton. It's awful defending from Spurs as one diagonal ball over the top from Schar finds Joelinton in stride. He takes a sublime first touch, rounds Lloris and places his effort into the back of the net.
4' Newcastle waltz their way through the Tottenham defence again as Isak finds space. He looks for room to fire at goal, but his effort is diverted behind by Dier.
J. Murphy
2' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! MURPHY HANDS NEWCASTLE THE PERFECT START!!!!! 1-0!!!!! Murphy is on hand at the back post to hammer home on the reboun after Joelinton's strike is saved by Lloris. Spurs afford Joelinton acres of space and time on the left flank and he cuts inside to shoot on his right foot. Lloris makes the stop, but fails to push it far enough away from goal, allowing Murphy to pounce and hammer his effort into the roof of the net.
1' We're under way at St James' Park.
Only against Aston Villa (24) have Newcastle won more Premier League games than they have against Tottenham (23). They're looking to complete their first league double over Spurs since 2015-16.
Tottenham also make one change to their side from their defeat to Bournemouth. Sarr slots into the backline to replace Lenglet, who drops to the bench. Davies returns to the bench for the visitors.
Newcastle make one change to their side from their defeat at the hands of Villa last week. Longstaff comes back into the side after missing out due to illness last week as he replaces Gordon, who drops to the bench. Wilson and Almiron are also on the bench from the off for Howe's men.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Davinson Sanchez, Richarlison, Arnaut Danjuma, Fraser Forster, Japhet Tanganga, Ben Davies, Clement Lenglet, Alfie Devine, Romaine Mundle.
TOTTENHAM (3-4-3): Hugo Lloris; Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Pape Sarr; Pedro Porro, Oliver Skipp, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ivan Perisic; Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min.
NEWCASTLE UNITED SUBS: Martin Dubravka, Jamaal Lascelles, Anthony Gordon, Callum Wilson, Matt Ritchie, Matt Targett, Javier Manquillo, Miguel Almiron, Elliot Anderson.
NEWCASTLE UNITED (4-3-3): Nick Pope; Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schar, Sven Botman, Dan Burn; Sean Longstaff, Bruno Guimaraes, Joe Willock; Jacob Murphy, Alexander Isak, Joelinton.
Tottenham had a huge chance to close the gap to Newcastle last week, but were beaten 3-2 at home by Bournemouth. Spurs cannot seem to get out of their own this term, and interim boss Cristian Stellini needs to rally his team for the biggest game of the campaign. The mood surrounding the club is at a low ebb indeed, with Davinson Sanchez booed off by sections of his own fans last week. Despite all their troubles, a win for Tottenham would move them level with Newcastle in the final Champions League place.
Newcastle have a huge chance today to shore up their credentials for a Champions League place next season. The Magpies have been outstanding over the course of the campaign, but put in arguably their worst performance in a 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa last time out. Eddie Howe's men still lead Tottenham by three points in fourth place, and can extend the gap to six points with only six games remaining in the term. The contest could be season-defining for both teams.
Hello and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Newcastle United and Tottenham at St James' Park.
