    That's all folks…

    That's all for tonight's coverage of Spurs vs Newcastle here on SunSport this evening.

    It was a great evening of football, that saw Newcastle move into the Champions League places, after a great performance away in the capital.

    Tottenham have a chance to turn things around at the weekend, as they are away to Bournemouth in the Premier League next on Saturday.

    Meanwhile, Newcastle will face off against Aston Villa at home on the same day, with Villa coming off the back of a good result following the sacking of Steven Gerrard.

    Thank you for reading as always, and enjoy the rest of your night!

    Hugo Lloris off the pace…

    Plenty of questions have been asked of Hugo Lloris' ability over the years, as he no longer looks like the once formidable French shot stopper.

    Today he was really questionable in goal for Spurs.

    The first goal, it could be debated whether or not he was fouled by Callum Wilson, but the goal stood and therefore it will go down as his blunder that caused it.

    He was also at fault for the second goal, as his poor distribution meant that Dan Burn could knock a header into the path of Almiron, who ghosted past Lenglet before slotting it underneath the keeper.

    Man of the match.

    The SunSport man of the match award tonight goes to Bruno Guimaraes.

    After becoming a father in the past few days, it cannot have been easy to put in a performance like he did today.

    He was excellent in midfield, and always looks like the difference for Newcastle when he plays.

    Who would you choose for man of the match?

    Newcastle into the top four!

    What a result that is for Newcastle United, who are into the top four much quicker than most people expected.

    They put in a brilliant performance today against Spurs, who made a few errors in what has been a difficult week for The Lilywhites.

    Heung Min-Son had a few early chances in the half, but failed to convert any of them.

    Not long later a Hugo Lloris error meant that Callum Wilson was able to loft the ball into the back of the net and make it 1-0 to the visitors.

    It was then the in-form Miguel Almiron, who ghosted past Clement Lenglet, before caressing the ball past Hugo Lloris into the bottom left corner.

    FT. Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle.

    The referee calls the game to a close, and it finishes Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle!
