How Newcastle's players rated in the 4-0 win over Tottenham:

7 Dubravka: Only had two shots to save.

8 Murphy: Deserved his standing ovation when replaced in the second half. Impressively adapted to wing-back role and frustrated Werner.

8 Krafth: You wouldn’t have guessed he’d played such little football this season. Assured defensively, almost scored with late header.

9 Schar: Outstanding. Kept Son under wraps, with the Spurs captain hooked on the hour mark. Scored fourth late on.

8 Burn: Always had the Spurs forward-line under wraps. In fine form.

8 Anderson: Deserved his start. Tireless on the left, adapted to unfamilar role, linked up well with Burn and Barnes.

9 Bruno: Bossed the midfield. So many classy touches.

8 Longstaff: Superb off the ball, never stopped hassling.

8 Barnes: Set the tone from the off with his energy. Exciting first glimpse of Barnes, Gordon and Isak as a trio.

9 Gordon: Created the first, scored the second. Terrified Tottenham throughout. Man of the Match.

8 Isak: Clinical opener set Newcastle on their way. Never looked like missing when put through for his second. Could have had a couple more.
