Against the terrible visitors, the hosts scored three times in the first nine minutes. Jacob Murphy scored from close range after 62 seconds and then cut a stunning third after Joelinton had doubled the lead from a ball over the top from Fabian Schar. Alexander Isak added a clinical, quick-fire double before the cheering home crowd. His second goal came on 21 minutes, making it the second-earliest any Premier League team has ever taken a five-goal lead. Tottenham’s defense continued to crumble.
Newcastle 6-1 Tottenham | Spurs concede five goals in first 21 minutes
Spurs fall six points off the Champions League spots despite having played a game more than Newcastle, which celebrates a memorable victory and moves above Manchester United into third. Their season has been thrown into disarray due to the humiliating defeat, which came only a week after their late defeat at home to Bournemouth. Prods goalkeeper Hugo Lloris didn’t arise for the last part, with Fraser Forster supplanting him, and substitute Callum Wilson reestablished Newcastle’s five-objective benefit just a brief time after coming on following a very much-taken relief objective by Harry Kane.
How the surrender took place?
It had been another chaotic week for the Spurs off the field. On Friday, Fabio Paratici resigned from his position as managing director, and the chaos behind the scenes played out in a remarkable opening on the pitch at St. James’ Park. The game was scarcely brief old when the conduits opened, Murphy hammering home from a couple of yards out after Joelinton had been permitted to cut inside from the left unopposed and discharge a low shot which a plunging Lloris just briefly repulsed.
It set the vibe for what was to come. After only four minutes, Schar played a speculative long pass over the Spur’s defense that Joelinton could control before beating the advancing Lloris. Joelinton was once more untracked by Pedro Porro. Fans from the two sides were at that point in a condition of skepticism by then, thus also was Murphy when, minutes after the fact, his solid long-range strike found the furthest corner for the third objective after Prods had given up belonging in their own a portion of, the winger standing surprised in the festival as Lloris remained frozen in place. At the other end, the Spurs had a brief chance when Kane missed a cutback from Oliver Skipp. However, their nightmare started when Isak scored the fourth goal after a break with a sensational outside-of-the-boot pass from Joe Willock.
Isak scored Newcastle’s second and fifth goals from Sean Longstaff’s cutback as the shell-shocked players at Spurs argued with one another.
At that point, Stellini switched from his back four to Davison Sanchez, a substitute booed off by his fans against Bournemouth last weekend. They hit back to a five to limit the damage. However, after losing to Aston Villa 3-0 in their previous match, Newcastle continued to pound them, with Porro and Ivan Perisic performing similarly subpar at fullback and Eric Dier and Cristian Romero failing miserably in the Spurs’ defensive center.
As Newcastle played with Spurs for the rest of the first half, the home fans let out audible olés. The second half started with news that Forster would start instead of the five-time beaten Lloris because of an injury. Prods momentarily seemed as though they might make the scoreline better when Kane dispatched his satisfactory relief, his low completion from an intense point beating Scratch Pope, who was generally an observer. But Newcastle continued to dominate, and if Isak had reacted sooner to Longstaff’s cross-shot shortly after Kane’s goal, he could have scored a hat trick.
