Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle Goals: Lucas (25th) for Spurs // Wilson (90th + 7, s.p.) for Magpies.
At the end, at the end, at the end ...
In control for 95 minutes this Sunday against Newcastle, Tottenham nevertheless let slip two points at the very end of the match (1-1). The fault of a more than questionable penalty, scored by Callum Wilson.
As usual, Newcastle left the ball to their opponent and turned their backs from the start. Karl Darlow was also quickly called upon to contribute. The goalkeeper of the Magpies first made a double save on a free kick from Giovani Lo Celso, taken over by Harry Kane (3rd), before stopping a pricked header from the English striker (9th). The last bulwark of the visitors can however nothing when Kane, launched on the left side, addresses a perfect cross for Lucas who pushes the swell to the bottom (1-0, 25th). An opening of the score which does not prevent Darlow from continuing to work small miracles, leaving a nice shot wrapped by Kane (27th). And when he is beaten a second time, his amounts are there to save him. Two heavy distant strikes from Heung-min Son indeed found the post (30th), then the bar (42nd).
Barcelona legend's verdict on what Jose Mourinho will love most about Gareth Bale's Tottenham arrival
The winger is on the verge of completing a sensational return to Tottenham HotspurThe Welshman is on the brink of sealing a return to the club he left for a record fee back in 2013, and Rivaldo believes Spurs can help the winger recapture his best form once again.
Unhappy, the Korean leaves at the break. From the bench, he witnessed a rather controlled second period from his partners, close to making the break on an attempt by Lo Celso (62nd), then a free kick from Erik Lamela at the end of the match (84th) . Except that this break will ultimately never intervene. Worse, in added time, Andy Carroll's head landed on the arm of an unfortunate Eric Dier. All smiles, Callum Wilson comes and scoop a point to his family by transforming the penalty at the last second (1-1, 90th + 7). Hard for Hugo Lloris, who until then had nothing - but then strictly nothing - had to do.
That's not knowing how to widen the gap ...
