Tottenham humiliated by Newcastle’s rapid-fire goals

Newcastle United crushed Tottenham Hotspur in their vital Premier League match at St James’ Park, scoring five goals in only 21 first-half minutes. Jacob Murphy and Alexander Isak each scored twice, while Joelinton and Callum Wilson each added one, and Harry Kane provided a late consolation for the visitors. Newcastle moves up to third in the league table and into a dominant position to secure a top-four finish, while Tottenham’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League are severely harmed.

Newcastle United thrashed Tottenham Hotspur 6-1 at St James’ Park, with five of their goals coming in a spectacular opening 21-minute spell under Eddie Howe.

The Magpies took the lead after just 62 seconds through Jacob Murphy, who scored two goals, with Joelinton also getting on the scoresheet twice, and Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson netting one each.

Harry Kane scores the consolation goal

Despite Harry Kane’s second-half goal, Tottenham were unable to recover from the shock of Newcastle’s fast start and were humiliated, leaving them with a mountain to climb to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe praised his squad’s performance, singling out Jacob Murphy, stating he had become a crucial element of the team and that his goals were well taken.

Tottenham manager Cristian Stellini confessed his team was not adequately prepared for the game and accepted full responsibility for the defeat, adding that the performance was baffling and difficult to understand.

Magpies soar to third in Premier League after crushing Spurs’ top-four hopes
