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:


GOAL! Tottenham 2-0 Newcastle (Richarlison, 38 mins)

Spurs double their lead and it’s a long-awaited goal for Richarlison. Just his second league goal of the season and it’s a rinse-and-repeat of their first goal.

Son does the hard work down the left, beating Trippier to the byline and cutting it back for the Brazilian who sweeps home with ease from inside the six-yard box.

34 mins: A warning sign for Spurs who are sloppy in gifting Newcastle possession in their first half. Gordon slides in Almiron but his effort is saved well down low by Vicario.

30 mins: A real chance for Sarr whose unmarked - five yards out - but skews his effort wide. Johnson’s low cross picked him out superbly but the midfielder got the contact all wrong.

GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle (Udogie 26 mins)

Spurs hit the front! A deserved lead for the home side as Udogie turns home Son’s vicious low cross from close range.

Wonderful work from the Tottenham captain and the full-back couldn’t miss from there. Another game in which Spurs take the lead - can they hold on this time?

23 mins: A brief moment of concern for Newcastle as Joelinton stays on the deck following a challenge with Sarr but the Brazilian is back on his feet and seems okay to continue.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle

19 mins: An enticing cross from Son, who has moved out to this left side, is almost turned home by the outstretched boot of Richarlison who makes a good dart to the near post.

It’s been a positive start, this, from Spurs so far.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle

17 mins: OFF THE LINE! Romero rises highest from the corner and powers a header on goal. It looked like it might have crept in at the near post but Almiron is well-positioned to clear the ball away on the line.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle

15 mins: Son has space to charge into as Spurs counter with pace, but the captain stalls on the ball which allows Almiron to get back and prevent the shot.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle

9 mins: Superb from Davies to prevent an almost-certain goal! Gordon surges down the left and his low ball into the box is all but destined to be tapped home by Isak but the Welsh defender does superbly to divert the ball away with a sliding interception.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle

7 mins: The first chance for Newcastle as Guimaraes receives the ball in plenty of space on the edge of the box but the Brazilian slices across it and sends it well over the bar.
