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.

Follow all the action live as Newcastle United take on Tottenham Hotspur:


Newcastle 1 - 2 Tottenham

36 mins: Willock tries to find a way into the box from the left but Emerson Royal doesn’t give him room. Willock leaves the ball to Ritchie who’s forward on the overlap but his cross into the middle is too close to Lloris who plucks it out of the air.

33 mins: Newcastle’s early momentum has been zapped out of them but they’re fighting hard to wrestle it back. Mainly through Allan Saint-Maximin who has a run down the right side stopped by Skipp.

Tottenham work the ball over to their right side and let Lucas Moura fly forward. He just into full stride before Sean Longstaff hits with a late tackle and picks up a yellow card.

30 mins: Allan Saint-Maximin goes on a fine run through the middle, evading two or three defenders before attempting to set up Wilson. He squares the ball but Oliver Skipp sprints back and intercepts the pass with a sliding challenge.

25 mins: Tottenham have turned this around but credit to the Newcastle fans who are still making their presence known. On the pitch Newcastle send a diagonal ball up to Joelinton who mis-controls it and fouls Emerson Royal trying to win back possession.

GOAL! Newcastle 1 - 2 Tottenham (Kane, 22’)⚽️

22 mins: GOAL! VAR comes to the rescue for Tottenham! The ball comes to Hojbjerg in the middle of the pitch. He turns towards goal and chips a lovely ball into the box over Newcastle’s high back line. Harry Kane gets back onside before sprinting in behind to catch the ball. Darlow thinks Kane is offside and is in no-man’s land. Kane flicks the ball over the goalkeeper and it finishes in the back of the net.

VAR takes a look and sees that Javier Manquillo is playing him onside. Kane finally gets his goal!

Newcastle 1 - 1 Tottenham

22 mins: Kane scores! But he’s offside. VAR will take a look at it, this one looks close...

Newcastle 1 - 1 Tottenham

20 mins: Chance! Newcastle win a corner that Ritchie delivers. It’s an outswinger that finds the run of Jamaal Lascelles who jumps at the right time but sends his headed effort over the crossbar.

GOAL! Newcastle 1 - 1 Tottenham (Ndombele, 17’)⚽️

17 mins: Is the party over already? A simple long ball comes up the pitch to Sergio Reguilon on the left wing. He isn’t closed down and Newcastle allow him to pass it into the Ndombele just inside the box. He’s wide open as well and takes his time to place his shot into the far corner. Great finish.

Newcastle 1 - 0 Tottenham

15 mins: Eric Dier threads a lovely forward pass up to Ndombele who spins and lays the ball out to Moura on the right side of the box. He takes a touch to set himself for an accurate cross but miscues it badly and scuffs the ball out for a Newcastle throw in.
