Newcastle 2-3 Tottenham LIVE RESULT: Toon beaten by Spurs as Saudi reign off to losing start – Premier League reaction

NEWCASTLE’S first game under Saudi ownership has done anything but gone to plan on a surreal afternoon on Tyneside.

The new owners’ reign could hardly have started better as Callum Wilson headed the Toon in front after just two minutes, but nothing since then has followed the script.

Spurs equalised on 17 minutes when Tanguy Ndombele fired a powerful strike into the top corner to level, before Harry Kane netted a deft chip to put Nuno’s men ahead.

The match then had to be suspended after a fan was tended to in the stands, with the Spurs players praised for alerting the officials to the incident.

And once the match resumed, Kane squared to Son to double the North Londoners’ advantage.

Then to compound the home fans’ woes, Jonjo Shelvey was sent off after a second booking for hacking Sergio Reguilon down.

An inexplicable Eric Dier own goal then gave Newcastle hope, but in reality they were well beaten on the day.
