Harry Kane netted a superb goal and made another for Son Heung-min to help Tottenham Hotspur to a 3-2 comeback win at Newcastle United. In Steve Bruce’s 1,000th match in all competitions as a manager and in front of Newcastle’s new owners, the home fans were given a dream start when Callum Wilson headed in Javier Manquillo’s second-minute cross. Spurs were level on 17 minutes with Tanguy Ndombele’s superb curling finish after Sergio Reguilon had picked him out. Kane then turned the match on its head with a clipped finish from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s precise through-ball for his first league goal of the season. Lucas Moura headed against the crossbar on 39 minutes before play was stopped due to a medical issue in the crowd. Shortly after play resumed in first-half stoppage time, Son’s close-range finish from Kane’s assist put Spurs 3-1 up. After the break, Newcastle substitute Jonjo Shelvey was sent off for a second booking. Eric Dier’s 89th-minute own goal gave the hosts hope, but Spurs held on to move up to fifth on 15 points. Newcastle remain 19th with three points.
