Spurs took maximum points away from a quiet St James Park, where homes fans were staging a stay-away protest against owner Mike Ashley, thanks to goals from Nacer Chadli. Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane.

Chaldi broke the deadlock on 29 minutes with a brilliant individual effort, following a scrappy start from both sides…

Tottenham were just about deserving of their lead at half time, but it was wiped out within 19 seconds of the restart when Jack Colback pounced inside a packed penalty area…

The visitors were back in front eight minutes later, with Eriksen taking the credit. The Dane’s inswinging free-kick outfoxed Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul, who should have done better.

However, Nabil Bentaleb may have got the tiniest of touches before Krul made a mess of the save. Certainly one for the dubious goals panel…

Krul’s unimpressive afternoon almost got much worse, but Federico Fazio bundled wide…

Spurs did strike again though, with Kane notching his 30th goal of an extraordinary season – finishing off a counter-attack with extreme composure.
