Newcastle 1-3 Tottenham

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino on Harry Kane reaching 30 goals this season: "It's fantastic, congratulations to him because he deserves this moment, it's historic, the first time since Gary Lineker in 1992. I think he needs to pay for a dinner this week for his team-mates. The team work a lot and try and help the striker score."

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino speaking to Sky Sports: "Our performance was good. We deserved then win as we were better than Newcastle.

"We need to be happy today.

"We are recovering our good feeling. It is important because we are in a position where we can fight for something until the end of the season.

"I got angry after we conceded a goal. We made big mistakes but after that the team reacted very well. Maybe it was good we conceded a goal early.

"It's very important to finish the season on a good level and then we have to analyse."

Thomas Rimer: Congrats Harry Kane! Brilliant season!

Ryan Mould: Newcastle seem to be in freefall at the moment. They have a lot of rebuilding to do in the summer, starting with the manager.

Kane hits 30

Newcastle 1-3 Tottenham

Kane
PA

Hats off to Harry Kane. England's newest star today became the first Tottenham striker to score 30 goals in a season since Gary Lineker in 1991-92. He's got five more games to add to that as well.

Player reaction

Newcastle 1-3 Tottenham

Tottenham striker Harry Kane: "We deserved it today. We played well. We've had some disappointing performances in the last couple of weeks and we wanted to put that right.

"I had a couple of chances and the keeper made some good saves but I'm delighted to get back on the scoresheet."

Asked about the first Spurs player to reach the 30 mark since Gary Lineker, he added: "I'm very proud but there are five games left and, hopefully, I'll get a few more goals."

Bad day for Liverpool

Newcastle 1-3 Tottenham

Liverpool

It has been a bad day all-round for fifth-placed Liverpool. Not only did they lose the FA Cup semi-final against Aston Villa but Manchester City won to move seven points ahead of them in fourth and Tottenham have gone level on points with them with this victory.

FULL-TIME

Newcastle 1-3 Tottenham

Spurs' push for Europe continues. Newcastle's fears of relegation remain. Boos from the home fans (the ones who are left in the ground) greet the whistle. The mood was bad here before kick-off. This will only make it worse.

Three minutes of added time have been added. It won't make a difference. Tottenham are winning this game and Newcastle are slipping to a sixth straight defeat.

Newcastle 1-3 Tottenham

Former Leyton Orient defender Matt Lockwood

BBC London 94.9 at St James' Park

"Newcastle put everybody forward in search of the equaliser and left themselves totally exposed at the back. As soon as you saw him bearing down on goal you knew Harry Kane was never going to miss that."

GOAL

Newcastle 1-3 Tottenham - Harry Kane

Kane
AP

Game over. Harry Kane has the final say with his 30th goal of the season, which also matches the 20 Premier League tally Sergio Aguero brought up for Manchester City earlier. Spurs break away and Erik Lamela plays ball to Kane on the charge and he makes no mistake with a side-foot finish past Tim Krul.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Sammy Ameobi looks to salvage something for Newcastle with a driving run down the left and a low cross that is cleared by Tottenham.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Paulinho is replaced by Ryan Mason as Nabil Bentaleb is booked for Tottenham for a foul. Play restarts with a Newcastle free-kick which they launch into the box, Tottenham clear and Daryl Janmaat fires wide from 20 yards. 90 seconds of normal time remain.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Perez

That sums Newcastle's day up. A free-kick 35 yards from goal is played to the edge of the box for Ayoze Perez but he mis-controls and the ball skips away for a goal-kick. There were empty seats at kick-off. There are even more now. Some of the home fans have seen enough.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Tottenham almost have a third as Federico Fazio challenges Tim Krul at the near post and bundles the ball out of his grasp and just past the post. Krul complains that he had the ball stolen, but the referee didn't whistle. It would have stood had it gone in.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Kane

Harry Kane shows strength to win the ball on the edge of the Newcastle box but Mike Williamson is equally strong as he comes over to block the striker's shot from an angle. The ball flies away for a corner...

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Danny Rose looks to have taken a bit of a knock to the back. Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino plays it safe and replaces him with Ben Davies.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Newcastle are looking to avoid a sixth straight defeat. They are still not out of the relegation woods just yet. Have they got enough in the locker to change the outcome of this game from what looks like being another loss? Daryl Janmaat unleashes a shot from range but slices it way, way wide.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Newcastle's final change sees striker Adam Armstrong come on for Vurnon Anita. Tottenham also make a change as Mousa Dembele replaces Nacer Chadli.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Krul

Tim Krul is singlehandedly keeping Newcastle in this game. Erik Lamela makes a good run to the edge of the box to receive a pass forward and earn himself a clear sight of goal but Krul is alert and out in a flash to block with his arm.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Kane

Oh, Harry Kane. Earlier in the season, everything he hit flew in but he is going through a little lean spell and it is not quite falling for him now. Earlier, Tim Krul denied him a goal with a superb save, but he is his own worst enemy here as he collects a Nabil Bentaleb chip in the box and shapes to shoot but loses his footing and pokes the ball harmlessly out for a goal-kick.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Obertan
PA

The Newcastle players are chasing the ball but they aren't getting hold of it with anywhere near enough regularity to get them back into this game. And on the rare occasions they do have a chance to push for an equaliser they waste it. There is a resigned feeling to everything and everyone associated with the Magpies at the moment.

GREAT SAVE!

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Kane

Paulinho takes the corner and Harry Kane meets it on the volley from point-blank range but somehow Tim Krul manages to keep the ball out with a superb reflex save. How did that not go in? Replays show it definitely stayed out. The keeper has just kept his side in this.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

It has been a very quiet afternoon in St James' Park, with few cheers but there are audible groans and moans now as Newcastle struggle to find a way back into this game. Harry Kane has a sight of goal but opts for a cut-back that wins a corner...

YELLOW CARD

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Jan Vertonghen leaves a leg hanging out to catch Ayoze Perez, concedes a free-kick on the edge of the box on the right and picks up a booking. Ryan Taylor chips in a cross from the set-piece that eventually falls to Perez at the back post but his low shot is blocked and cleared.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Tottenham are starting to find spaces with worrying regularity for the home side now. Nacer Chadli has room to drive down the left and then float a cross over that is just a few yards ahead of Nabil Bentaleb in the middle.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

That lead-restoring goal has hit Newcastle hard. They look completely deflated. Harry Kane comes close to setting Christian Eriksen up in the box but a Newcastle defender sticks his leg out to prevent the cross reaching the Dane.

CLOSE!

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Bentaleb

Tottenham come within inches of scoring a third. Nabil Bentaleb charges into the box to meet a Nacer Chadli cross from the left but his header loops over the bar and on to the roof of the net. He should have scored. If he had that would surely have been game over.

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

Former Leyton Orient defender Matt Lockwood

BBC London 94.9 at St James' Park

"Harry Kane was trying to claim that, wasn't he? Delivery into the box is so important and Christian Eriksen's delivery is so good there. If one of your players gets a nick on it, you are going to score. But even without an extra touch, that kind of ball can always creep in at the far post."

GOAL

Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham - Christian Eriksen

Eriksen
AP

Newcastle are not level for long. Having been fouled himself, Christian Eriksen dusts himself off and then curls over a free-kick into the box that is clearly designed to be a cross but beasts everyone, including Tim Krul, and finds the far corner. That could be a decisive blow, stamping out the home momentum. It is Eriksen's first goal since the end of January.

Newcastle 1-1 Tottenham

Jack Colback needs to be careful. He may have scored but he also been booked and he walks a fine line by dragging down Christian Eriksen as the Dane broke into the Newcastle half.

Newcastle 1-1 Tottenham

Now we could have a game on our hands. Newcastle have clearly come out with the bit between their teeth after a limp first-half. Apparently, there are 47,427 people in the crowd, which is the lowest crowd of the season at this ground.

Newcastle 1-1 Tottenham

Former Leyton Orient defender Matt Lockwood

BBC London 94.9 at St James' Park

"Tottenham were comfortably on top in the first half and Newcastle had to change things at the break. I didn't think those changes would pay off that quickly but they have done."

GOAL

Newcastle 1-1 Tottenham - Jack Colback

Colback
PA

Would you believe it?! Just 18 seconds into the second half, Newcastke equalise as Ayoze Perez drives into the Tottenham box and sets up Daryl Janmaat for a shot that is blocked but followed up by Jack Colback to strike into the net. Finally, the hom fans have something to cheer.

KICK-OFF

Newcastle 0-1 Tottenham

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 0-1 Tottenham

Here come the teams for the second half. John Carver clearly feels his side need something different. He's not wrong. A double change for the home side sees Gabriel Obertan and Sammy Ameobi come on for Mehdi Abied and Yoan Gouffran.
