We will have to approach Spurs positively - Howe

Tottenham coasted to a comfortable 4-1 win over Newcastle as Ange Postecoglou’s side ended their five-match winless run.

Goals from Destiny Udogie and Richarlison saw the home side ahead at the break after a relentless display against the injury-ravaged visitors.

Richarlison added a third after the break before Son Heung-Min got in the act from the penalty spot after he was brought down by Martin Dubravka.

Joelinton’s injury-time finish secured a consolation goal for Eddie Howe’s side who remain seventh after two back-to-back defeats.

Follow along with all the post-match reaction below:

Tottenham 3-0 Newcastle

76 mins: Porro’s long-distance effort stings the palms of Dubravka who claims the ball at the second time of asking. The Spurs right-back has had a superb game today.

Tottenham 3-0 Newcastle

73 mins: A double change now for Spurs as the returning Sarr makes way for Hojbjerg, while Richarlison receives a hero’s reception as he heads to the bench after his brace. Lo Celso comes on in his place.

Another double change for Newcastle follows as Livramento and Gordon are replaced by Ritchie and Hall.

Tottenham 3-0 Newcastle

71 mins: That third goal has just taken the sting out of the third half. Newcastle have been run ragged at points in this game and just look devoid of inspiration right now.

Tottenham 3-0 Newcastle

67 mins: There’s a real swagger about how Spurs are playing right now as Kulusevski picks up the ball on the edge of the box. The Swede tries his luck but Dubravka makes a good save down to his right.

Moments prior a double change from Newcastle as Longstaff and Wilson come on for Isak and Almiron.

Tottenham 3-0 Newcastle

63 mins: CHANCES! So close to a fourth from Spurs who are rampant again. Johnson’s initial effort stays out having clipped the inside off the post before Son fires across the face of goal at the back post just moments later.

GOAL! Tottenham 3-0 Newcastle (Richarlison, 60 mins)

Richarlison at the double!

Newcastle have been good this second half but it’s the home side who have the crucial third goal in this game. The Brazillian does superbly to bring down Porro’s searching ball inside the box, controlling it well before finishing under Dubravka.

A smile from Postecoglou on the sideline - he knows how important that goal is.

Tottenham 2-0 Newcastle

59 mins: Spurs surge forward from a Newcastle counter on the break but Lascelles does well to drag back Son on the halfway line. A yellow card for his troubles, though.

Tottenham 2-0 Newcastle

53 mins: More Newcastle pressure as they search for a way back into this game. trippier flashes another ball across the box but Davies does well to clear it behind for a corner.
