Newcastle delivered a stunning performance against Tottenham, scoring five goals in the first half to secure a comfortable 6-1 victory in the Premier League. Jacob Murphy’s ecstatic reaction to his goal summed up the emotions of the Newcastle players and fans.
The first two goals were scored by Joelinton and Murphy, taking advantage of Tottenham’s ineffective defense. Murphy scored another goal from 30 yards out, before Alexander Isak and Joe Willock added two more goals to make it 5-0. Tottenham made some changes to their formation, but the damage had already been done. Harry Kane scored a consolation goal for Tottenham, but it was not enough to prevent Newcastle from securing a five-goal victory.
Newcastle demonstrated a level of energy, organization, and efficiency that was lacking in Tottenham’s performance. With this kind of form, Newcastle could even be contenders for a Champions League spot by the end of the season.
