Newcastle United have opened the scoring at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after a bizarre error by Hugo Lloris.
Lloris ran out of his area to try and meet a long ball from Newcastle’s Fabian Schar, before running into Callum Wilson and falling to the floor.
Taking advantage of the open net, Wilson calmly chipped the ball over Lloris and the scrambling Spurs defenders to make it 1-0. After a lengthy VAR check for a possible foul on the Spurs goalkeeper, the Magpies were awarded the goal. Take a look at the opener below:
