Half-time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium…

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Newcastle United

Spurs lead thanks to Lucas Moura’s goal midway through the first-half but it could be so many more.

Heung-Min Son has hit the woodwork twice, while Newcastle keeper, Karl Darlow, has twice brilliantly denied Harry Kane as the visitors have grimly hung on.

Jonjo Shelvey almost gave Newcastle a shock equaliser on the stroke of the whistle – his volley drifting the wrong side of an upright. But at the moment it’s Spurs ahead – Steve Bruce relieved to get his side in still in touch, just!
