Tottenham thump Newcastle at home
NEWCASTLE United failed to halt their dismal run of form yesterday as they were beaten 3-1 by Tottenham at a sparse St James’ Park.
Some supporters boycotted the game in protest at the running of the club and a perceived lack of ambition from the board.
And for those who were in attendance, there was little cause for cheer as goals from Nacer Chadli, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane eclipsed Jack Colback’s effort to inflict a sixth consecutive defeat on the hosts.
Chadli gave Mauricio Pochettino’s side a half-time lead with a long-range strike 29 minutes in, though Tim Krul might have done more to save the effort.
However, Newcastle equalised early in the second half – Colback restoring parity 18 seconds after the restart.
