Newcastle United’s new era of expected riches and Saudi-fuelled optimism starts on Sunday afternoon as they host Tottenham Hotspur at St. James’ Park.

The P.I.F. consortium finally purchased the club from previous owner Mike Ashley during the international break, leading to delirious scenes outside St. James’ Park and human rights groups including Amnesty International raising concerns about links to the Saudi Arabian government. Steve Bruce remains in the dugout, for now, and will take charge of his 1000th match as a manager, as his side faces a Spurs team which defeated Aston Villa last time out to end a run of three consecutive losses.

Newcastle remain without a win in the Premier League this season and Bruce will desperate to make a positive first impression with his new employers, who have been linked with a glut of managers around Europe as potential replacements for the 61-year-old. The Magpies are currently 18th in the table, ahead only of the equally winless Burnley and Norwich City, while Spurs sit ninth, having scored only six goals in their opening seven matches.

RED CARD! Jonjo Shelvey is off!

Newcastle 1 - 3 Tottenham

83 mins: Spurs clear the a cross into the box from the right and break on the counter with Son. He knocks the ball over to Reguilon who taps it past Shelvey and has him beaten for pace. Shelvey sees no other option but to bring down the man and it’s a certain yellow card. His second in five minutes which means Andre Marriner follows it up with a red one.

80 mins: There’s another VAR check for a potential Tottenham penalty as Ritchie blocks a cross in the box with his arm. Newcastle get away with it though and sweep up the pitch.

78 mins: Shelvey picks up a yellow card for taking Ndombele’s legs out from underneath him. Spurs work their way up the pitch and give the ball to Son on the left side. He sends it back into the middle where Moura runs onto the ball and fires an effort high over the goal.

Newcastle 1 - 3 Tottenham

75 mins: Newcastle are very tentative when Tottenham run the ball into the box. Kane does it this time and knocks the ball behind off a defender for a corner. Son lifts the corner into the penalty but Newcastle deal with it well.

Callum Wilson and Joe Willock are taken off by Steve Brunce with Ryan Fraser and Jacob Murphy on for the last 15 minutes.

72 mins: Saint-Maximin cuts inside from the left wing and takes the ball to the edge of the box. He loads up and lets fly on a powerful shot but fires it high and wide.

A Newcastle goal now would set up a bumper finish to this game.

Newcastle 1 - 3 Tottenham

69 mins: Ndombele has been a delight today for Tottenham. He makes a run into the box stopping only to play a one-two with Kane to get past a defender. He’s forced slightly wider than he’d like but takes a shot anyway and wins a corner.

Newcastle 1 - 3 Tottenham

66 mins: Emerson Royal is booked for a foul on Saint-Maximin but Newcastle are afforded the chance to play on to their advantage. Willock receives the ball and drives towards the box. He shuffles inside but runs into a stiff arm from Cristian Romero and goes down in the box. There’s a half appeal for a penalty but Andre Marriner isn’t interested and goes back to show Royal a yellow card for the earlier tackle.

63 mins: Substitution for Newcastle. Jonjo Shelvey returns from injury to replace Sean Longstaff for the final 30 minutes or so.

Emerson Royal takes forward on the wide right and wins a corner after Matt Ritchie blocks the attempted cross into the box. Son delivers the set piece but Newcastle deal with it well enough.

Newcastle 1 - 3 Tottenham

60 mins: Chance! Kane is played down the inside right channel and looks up to see Ndombele making a run into the far side of the box. He fires across and great pass that the Spurs midfielder chests down before blasting a shot just wide of the far top corner.
