It was quite the display this afternoon at Tottenham. The lads were set up extremely well and Joelinton took his chance beautifully. On a day where the hosts enjoyed 80% of the possession, Newcastle kept their concentration and were able to battle for the win.
Steve Bruce had the lads set up in 5-4-1 and they played on the counter very effectively. Joelinton’s hold-up play was superb, while Miguel Almiron and Christian Atsu ran their socks off.
The defense played with tenacity and fight. They seemed impenetrable at times as they kept their shape. Spurs did get a few chances, and on a better day they may have put a few in. However, Newcastle took their chance and have gotten their first win under Steve Bruce.
Howay The Lads!
