Newcastle 1-3 Tottenham LIVE SCORE: Son puts Spurs two up as game restarts after suspension due to medical emergency


NEWCASTLE’S first match under Saudi ownership is back underway after being suspended due to a medical emergency in the stands.

And Son Heung-min has now doubled the visitors’ lead on Tyneside.

The Saudis’ time in charge of Newcastle could hardly have started better as Callum Wilson headed the Toon in front after just two minutes.

But it didn’t last as Spurs showed what they’re made of 15 minutes later when Tanguy Ndombele fired a powerful strike into the top corner to level.

Then on 22 minutes, Harry Kane netted a deft chip which VAR rules was onside to put Nuno’s men ahead.

And once the players returned to the pitch, Kane squared to Son to double the North Londoners’ advantage.

  • HT: NEWCASTLE 1-3 SPURS

    It seems a long time ago now that Callum Wilson gave Newcastle a dream start. The striker’s header, two minutes into his return, took the roof off St James’ Park on their day of celebration. However, goals from Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son have Spurs firmly in the ascendency at the end of a first half most notable for a worrying incident involving a home supporter. As the clock approached 45 minutes, a fan in the East Stand was taken ill and required CPR from bystanders and medics. Fortunately, that person is now said to be stable in hospital.

  • PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    THE FIRST HALF COMES TO AN END!

  • NEWCASTLE 1-3 SPURS

    45+9. The first half ends with tempers flared after Newcastle players – and referee Andre Marriner – refused to stop play after Emerson Royal had gone down injured. Saint-Maximin and Hojbjerg are particularly vocal in their views.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-3 SPURS

    45+6. Saint-Maximin tries to pull one back by plundering his way through. The Frenchman finds his route blocked so goes for a long ranger but it’s well off target.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-3 SPURS

    45+3. Amid an understandably sombre atmosphere, Tottenham bag their third of the afternoon.

    It’s a superbly-worked goal featuring all of the visitors’ attacking players. Tanguy Ndombele starts the move before Lucas Moura skips away from his marker and pokes a pass through for Harry Kane.

    Confidence renewed, Kane races on to the ball, and then picks out Heung-min Son with a simple cross to the far post that the South Korean fires in.

    All too easy.

  • GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!
    HEUNG-MIN SON ADDS A THIRD!!

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    45+2. Applause rings around St James’ Park to acknowledge the medical staff who assisted during the emergency as they make their way back to the dugout.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    45+1. The game restarts with a Spurs corner on the right, taken by Son and eventually headed away by Lascelles.

  • THE TEAMS RETURN

    The players are back out and will undergo a three-minute warm-up before commencing with the first half.

    Meanwhile, the supporter involved has been removed from the stand on a stretcher and is on their way to the nearby hospital. The promising news filtering through is that they have been stabilised and we’ll keep our fingers crossed for a speedy recovery.

  • UPDATE

    A stadium announcement has just confirmed that the players will return to the field of play shortly, and will complete the first half after a short warm-up.

  • PLAY SUSPENDED

    45+2. Andre Marriner goes across to the far side where the unfortunate incident has occurred, and enters discussion with a steward and then a policeman.

    The referee then decides to take both teams off the field as play is suspended.

    While we don’t know the details of the situation unfolding and send our best wishes to those involved, credit must go to the reaction of the players in alerting the authorities. Sergio Reguilon and Eric Dier particularly were quick and thoughtful in their actions.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    45. The fourth official signals for seven minutes of additional time, but it’s ultimately going to be longer as play is yet to resume.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    43. Referee Andre Marriner calls for a halt in play as Eric Dier races across to ensure the defibrillator is brought across by the Newcastle club doctor Paul Catterson.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    40. As Spurs were preparing to take a throw-in on the far side, both sets of players started to frantically call for assistance from the dugouts.

    It soon becomes clear that there is a emergency in the East Stand with a supporter requiring medical assistance.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    39. Off the crossbar! Spurs almost bag a third as Lucas Moura meets Son’s corner with a header that thumps against the woodwork.

    Spurs are completely on top now.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    38. Tanguy Ndombele has been absolutely brilliant since being moved into his more advanced midfield role.

    Dominant against Aston Villa, the Frenchman is at it again today. He dances through a non-existent Newcastle backline and wins his side another corner.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    36. Martin Tyler uses the term ‘box office’ to describe Allan Saint-Maximin.

    How do you do, fellow kids?

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    35. A slight change in shape for Newcastle with Joe Willock drifting out to the left to allow Joelinton the opportunity to roam centrally.

    How Newcastle could do with the goals of Willock’s purple patch that ended last season.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    33. Ooof! Longstaff finally picks up a yellow card.

    The Newcastle midfielder is cautioned for tripping Lucas Moura.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    31. Nearly! The Newcastle front three combine again as Joelinton slides Wilson through on goal.

    Rather than taking the opportunity on himself, the striker instead looks for a pass to Saint-Maximin at the far post, a decision that is only thwarted by some excellent defending from Reguilon.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    29. Newcastle need to summon the energy of the first ten minutes, and need the help of the crowd. This is where being the self-proclaimed best fans in the world really earns its money.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    27. This game has turned around completely, not just in scoreline but pattern of play.

    It’s now the visitors that look dangerous at every turn, this time forcing a corner off Saint-Maximin.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    25. The cameras pick out Newcastle’s new owners, Yasir Al-Rumayyan and Amanda Staveley, in the director’s box and they look a lot less enthused by the task ahead of them than they did with two minutes on the clock.

    If they think this is a topsy turvy game, wait until they’re in the Championship.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    22. What a turnaround!

    Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg chips a pass over the Newcastle defence for Harry Kane to latch on to, and expertly lob over the approaching Karl Darlow.

    However, no sooner had the ball hit the back of the net, Kane’s huge smile turned to a wry one as he noticed the linesman’s flag.

    The video officials take charge of the situation, and soon realise that the Tottenham striker had been played onside by Javier Manquillo on the far side.

    The news filters through to Andre Marriner on the pitch, the goal is awarded and finally the visitors are able to celebrate.
