Tottenham players rated as they make a resounding comeback to victory

Spurs Triumph Over Newcastle United at Home

At the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Tottenham Hotspur broke a run of five winless games with an impressive 4-1 victory against Newcastle United. Spurs secured their fifth-place spot in the Premier League standings, while the Magpies suffered their second consecutive three-goal loss.

Newcastle almost took the lead in the ninth minute when Anthony Gordon’s low cross into Alexander Isak was first deflected by Ben Davies, and the Swede was unable to convert from close range. Cristian Romero’s effort was cleared off the line by Miguel Almiron.

The deadlock was finally broken midway through the first half when Son Heung-min delivered a low cross for Destiny Udogie to tap in at the near post. Minutes later, Brennan Johnson provided a great cross for Pape Matar Sarr, although he was unable to strike the ball cleanly.

Spurs doubled their lead when Son out-muscled Kieran Trippier and cut back for Richarlison to finish from close range. Johnson went close to adding a third, but missed the bottom corner by inches. Before halftime, Richarlison missed a chance to score his second goal.

Early in the second half, Tottenham secured their third goal after a mistake by Newcastle’s goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, allowing Richarlison to comfortably slot home. A few minutes later, Johnson’s strike ricocheted off the inside of the post and back across the line, nearly scoring a fourth for Spurs. Son then fired wide from a deep Kulusevski cross.

With less than ten minutes left, Spurs were awarded a penalty when Son was brought down by Dubravka. The South Korean stepped up and finished to round off the scoring for the hosts. Newcastle managed to get on the scoresheet in stoppage time when Joelinton scored a consolation goal.

Spurs’ GK Guglielmo Vicario received a 6/10 rating and RB Pedro Porro an 8/10. CB Cristian Romero scored 7/10 and LWB Destiny Udogie an 8/10. CM Pape Matar Sarr stood out with a rating of 9/10, while Son Heung-min and Richarlison were rated 9/10 each. Manager Ange Postecoglou received 9/10 for Tottenham’s dominant performance.

Newcastle’s GK Martin Dubravka received a 2/10 rating and RB Kieran Trippier a 3/10. CB Jamaal Lascelles scored 4/10, while GK Martin Dubravka scored 5/10.

Newcastle’s manager Eddie Howe received a rating of 2/10 as his team failed to blunt Tottenham’s attacking force.

Overall, it was a convincing win for Tottenham, ending their winless streak and securing a dominant victory over Newcastle United.
