How did the players fare in Newcastle's home game with Spurs?

NEWCASTLE (5-3-2):

6 Dubravka: Didn’t have a chance with either of Spurs’ goals and distributed the ball well with his feet

7 Murphy: Added some drive and energy down the right-hand side and is definitely Newcastle’s best option if they stick with a back five

4 Krafth: Was moved inside to play at centre-half, but didn’t look comfortable and got himself into a real mess for Kane’s first goal

6 Lascelles: Won most of his aerial battles against Kane, even if he was occasionally undone by the Spurs striker on the ground

6 Dummett: Looked at home playing as one of the three centre-halves and won a couple of important late defensive headers

7 Ritchie: Gave everything on his return to the side and delivered the cross that led to Willock’s late equaliser

7 Almiron: Helped the ball into Willock’s path for the equaliser and made an important headed clearance off the line at the other end

7 Shelvey: Rediscovered his passing range and threaded some dangerous balls through the Tottenham defence

7 S Longstaff: Justified his recall with an energetic and committed midfield display in which he was constantly harrying Spurs’ midfielders

6 Gayle: Posed a threat and clearly enjoyed playing as a central striker, but wasted two great chances as Lloris made a double save

8 JOELINTON: A much-improved performance from the Brazilian, who scored Newcastle’s opener and had a major hand in their second too


5 Saint-Maximin (for Gayle, 70): Buzzed around in the closing stages, but failed to pick out the right man on a couple of occasions

Willock (for Krafth, 78)

Manquillo (for Murphy, 82)
