  1. See you soon

    Very good Mr Osman. 

    As a wise manager once told me, "I don't predict matches Alistair because I've no idea what will happen. That's why I go to watch in the first place."

    Can't argue with that. Good night. 

  2. The most unpredictable season yet?

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    Can you tell I've been filling?

    Anyway it's been another unpredictable day in the Premier League. Some might say the quality is not as good but I'd rather have a league where the top two don't run away with it each year.

  3. Friends again?

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    The conversation continued on the pitch afterwards with some of Tony Pulis's staff. But they shook hands in the end, and neither Jurgen Klopp or Pulis mentioned anything in their post-match interviews. 

    Jurgen Klopp
  4. So what I was trying to say was....

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    But then it started to calm down again. 

    Jurgen Klopp
  5. Why, you....

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    Then the German's face takes on a different look as he and Tony Pulis come closer together, perhaps to share a hug?

    Jurgen Klopp
  6. Oh and as for you....

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    Jurgen Klopp then turns to Tony Pulis, who I can only imagine was keeping his counsel for the whole game. 

    Jurgen Klopp
  7. Have some of that!

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    Incidentally, there are some great pictures of Jurgen Klopp turning towards Tony Pulis after Divock Origi's injury-time goal. The German looked happy to get one over his West Brom counterpart, shall we say. 

    It started like this....

    Jurgen Klopp
  8. Why celebrate a draw?

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    Liverpool

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp beckoned his players together at the final whistle to salute the Kop. 

    Some wags on social media (non-Liverpool fans, presumably) have mocked the German for celebrating a home draw against a bottom-half team in such a manner. Others (Liverpool fans) reckon it shows a togetherness in the home dressing room.

    Klopp explains why: "It was the best atmosphere since I came here. Of course people are disappointed but they didn't let us feel that. They saw that the lads tried everything and played football.

    "We stayed in the game, had a few moments where we not so good, but only set plays that cost us. If we can do that better then maybe win games more easily."

  9. Manager reaction - Pulis

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    Tony Pulis

    Understandably West Brom manager Tony Pulis looks like a bloke who has just been told that he's having a plate of sprouts for his dinner. Not happy. 

    "We're disappointed," says the Welshman, somewhat predictably. "We showed great resilience and to get done with a deflected goal in the eighth minute of stoppage time is particularly disappointing for the players.

    "I can't fault the players. To come to a place like this with their budget, players and standing, we shouldn't be in their league.

    On Albion having a goal ruled out for a 2-1 lead before half-time: "What disappointed me is the linesman doesn't put flag up. If he puts his flag up straight away it is offside. Why the referee goes over and talks to him I don't know."

    Interesting that Jurgen Klopp decided that the injury-time equaliser could be a special moment, and the fact he led his team onto the pitch to celebrate it afterwards with the fans.

    What did you make of that?

  12. It could be a special moment - Klopp

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "I'm satisfied now because it was the perfect finish to this game. The one point was the minimum that we deserved today. Two set plays cost us, we knew about their quality in these situations but we tried. It was difficult.

    "We created chances, made a perfect goal then conceded those two. But at the end I can live with it. This could prove to be a very special moment for us in the season to strike back against such a team."

    On West Brom's disallowed goal just before half-time: "I saw no flag but at half-time I could see it was offside. I don't know how the referee and his linesman came to that decision - but it was the right decision."

  13. Player reaction - Henderson

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson: "I think we're disappointed not to have won the game.

    "I thought we created some good chances. We knew West Brom would sit in. We're frustrated but at the same time we were chasing the game and it's great to see Divock come on and get the goal.

    "After the equaliser I thought we had the momentum to get another goal, I thought we'd sneak another. We kept going but it wasn't to be."

    On Albion's disallowed 'goal' moments before half-time: "We said at half-time it was the right decision. It looked offside. I saw the referee speaking to the linesman and they decided it was offside - I think that was right decision."

  14. Leaving it late in Liverpool

    Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

    Right let's get some reaction from this afternoon's other game, where Divock Origi scored an injury-time leveller for Liverpool.

  16. 'We are disappointed in the dressing room'

    Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to Sky Sports: "The first half was fantastic, we played very well. One of the best games that we have shown but in the second half, yes maybe there was a lack of competitiveness and we gave them an opportunity to score. 

    "We are very disappointed in the dressing room. It wasn’t fair the final result, we need to explain the second half because it was very different to the first. It’s difficult to explain now. But my feelings are disappointment, because the game is under control. You have to compete for 95 minutes. It’s true that the second half we gave them chances.

    "This is our 16th league game and our second defeat. It is a bad feeling but we need to work hard and look forward."

  17. 'Impossible to explain'

    Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to BBC Sport: "I think our first half was fantastic; we dominated the game. The second is not easy to explain. We made mistakes and we feel very disappointed now because we did not deserve to lose. But that is football and you need to compete over 95 minutes. Today was difficult.

    "The game was under control. We conceded two goals because we made simple mistakes but we need to look forward. In football it is impossible sometimes to explain why.

    "After 45 minutes you never expected to lose the game. Thursday [in the Europa League] is not an excuse, there is nothing to say about Thursday. It is not about physical condition. We gave the ball away and needed more control. We conceded two easy goals and that is why we are disappointed.

    "This defeat does not change my feeling - I am happy with the squad. You always look at options but I am very happy with the squad I have."

  19. 'We haven't turned the corner'

    Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

    Newcastle boss Steve McClaren: "It was a big test, especially being 1-0 down at half-time. It's answered the critics we have had over last four weeks and it was a great performance in the second half and a great result. 

    "That is what we are: a bedrock of discipline and hard work. We have talented players, and they know how to win, we just have to do it consistently. 

    "[The goals from the subs] are nothing to do with my decision, it's down to the players on the pitch, they have to impact. We asked them to win the game and that's what they did. 

    "We haven't turned the corner yet, we need more performances like that. We have been inconsistent."

    Newcastle manager Steve McClaren
  20. That is what we are - McClaren

    Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

    Newcastle manager Steve McClaren, speaking to Sky Sports: "The result is huge, massive. Not just the performance but the result. Back-to-back wins, which we haven’t had for about a year, and we haven't had a comeback win for over a year. These are the things that test the team and they have shown fantastic character. 

    "That is what we are and that is what we want to be. The players showed fantastic effort, attitude, work-rate, and we have some talented players as well. We deserved the win with the second half we had.

    "There was a great response at half-time from my players. I didn't have to say anything, they said it all. The resilience they showed in the second half was fantastic. We need to keep that going now, week in week out.

    "Pat on the back for the subs. Ayoze Perez and Aleksandar Mitrovic didn't play the last game but were ready to come on and had that impact. They’re winners again.

    "There’s still a long way to go. But after a lot of criticism the players have come back well to get to magnificent results. To be out of the bottom three is obviously huge, but getting a result from a performance like that really boosts you."

  21. Spurs burnt out?

    Yes Mark, but Spurs made six changes. Can you explain that? They have already played 24 games this season.

  23. 'We feel euphoric'

    Tottenham 1-2 Newcastle

    Newcastle goalkeeper Rob Elliot speaking to Sky Sports: "It's a bit euphoric to be fair, the fans have been unbelievable sticking with us. The lads were amazing and after last week, we had to make sure we didn't take our foot off the gas. The boys who came on to score the goals have been a bit unlucky not to play from the start. When we all play together you see what happens."

    Newcastle goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic to Sky Sports: "I've worked hard and waited for my moment. I've worked with the fitness coach every day when I came on he said I was going to score. It was a goal for him today. Rob, too was on fire."

    It's even more disappointing now. The ball is headed through to Ayoze Perez, who chests it down and slams it toward goal under the diving Hugo Lloris. The Spurs keeper should have done better there.

    Should be a winner for Newcastle. Moussa Sissoko crosses from the right and I don't know how Aleksandar Mitrovic has missed this. He's six yards out, a yard from the ball and somehow did not connect.

    There are definitely signs that Newcastle can get out of their slump. Ayoze Perez weaves his way into the box, shapes to shoot but as he tries to poke the ball goalwards he is beaten to it by Jan Vertonghen and the Newcastle substitute earns a yellow card.

    "Hugo Lloris seemed to divert the ball away from his own defender when saving the initial shot - just like Rob Elliot for Tottenham's goal, the keeper took it away from his own player.

    "Two goals from two dead ball situations is about right, because we haven't seen an awful lot of chances from open play."

    Aleksandar Mitrovic

    From that free-kick Newcastle score. It's hit deep to the back post where Fabricio Coloccini heads back, Chancel Mbemba heads it forward, Hugo Lloris saves and Aleksandar Mitrovic stabs in on the goalline. 

    Mitrovic celebrates
  53. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle

    Christain Eriksen tests Rob Elliot with another shot which the newcastle goalkeeper is equal to. Down the other end, Danny Rose is penalised for a handball as he blocks Daryl Janmaat's cross and is booked. 

  54. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle

    Son Heung-min has slotted into the number 10 position for Spurs I think, meaning Dele Alli will drop back to support Eric Dier in the deeper lying midfield role. 

    Aleksandar Mitrovic replaces Papiss Cisse.

    Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle

    Teams are back out, Spurs get us under way for the second half. No changes. 

  76. Out the way lad!

    Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle

    So you collect the ball off a team-mate, shape to shoot, angle it towards the top corner and said team-mate gets in the way! That's how Papiss Cisse blocked Siem de Jong's effort for Newcastle. Spurs stopper Hugo Lloris was airborne.

    Siem de Jong
  77. Evenly poised?

    Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle

    Is the scoreline a fair reflection of the game? With Spurs enjoying 11 shots on goal to Newcastle's two, you would have to say so. Steve McClaren's side are yet to hit the target so I presume Papiss Cisse blocking team-mate Siem de Jong's effort goes down as a blocked shot. Unfortunate.

    Crisis over on the tea front by the way. One of my colleagues has obliged. You can rest easy now!

    Both Spurs full-backs are getting forward, as Danny Rose crosses into the middle but watches as Rob Elliot comes out to claim his centre. Down the other end Papiss Cisse heads wide from about 12 yards out. He had to strain his neck muscles to get that one goalwards.

  96. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle

    Tottenham might have been on an unbeaten run since the start of the season but their last two games have been 1-1 against West Brom and 0-0 at home to Chelsea. Jack Colback goes into the book as he brings down Kyle Walker.

  98. Nil-nil anyone?

    Maybe mentioning this will urge the teams into finding the net? Spurs have had six shots to Newcastle's one but we have one shot on target in total.

    Spurs are looking to break quickly but are held up by Jack Colback's handball. Not sure if it was intentional but it did the job. Vernon Anita now concedes another foul. Christian Eriksen takes the free-kick deep in the Newcastle half but it doesn't beat the first man.

    Kyle Walker looks like he's right to carry on but he's limping. He'll have a nice bruise in the morning, I bet. 

  101. Ouch!

    Oof! Right old 50-50 here between Spurs right-back Kyle Walker and Newcastle left-back Paul Dummett. It's Walker who has come off worst and he is receiving treatment.

    Kyle Walker likes to steam down the right and his overlapping run helps earn a corner for Spurs. However it is headed away again. Newcastle are defending quite stoutly as Christian Eriksen is the latest Spurs player to fire wide from distance.

    Spurs left-back Danny Rose is down now after being clattered but he's from Doncaster, I'm told, so made of stern stuff.

    Slight worry for Spurs striker Harry Kane as he pulls up following the next attack. He's clutching his calf but appears ok.

    Not much, but in the next phase Dele Alli is played in over the top but is let down by a poor touch. Spurs are starting to build a head of steam. They will want to score during this period of pressure.

    Newcastle fans finding their voice but Spurs midfielder Dele Alli is finding space down the left, and wins a corner. Not it's a throw in. What can they muster from here?

    Eric Dier is the latest Spurs player to try his luck but he drags his shot wide from distance. Mauricio Pochettino will be pleased by the tempo shown from his team so far.

    Newcastle look like they are sporting the confidence that last week's win over Liverpool gave them. Nice start to this game, but now Dele Alli is in down the left for Spurs but is penalised for tripping Chancel Mbemba despite looking like he might win a corner for the hosts.

    Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 Live at White Hart Lane

    "Papiss Cisse is shaking his head and arms as if to say he didn't quite know what he was doing there, but he stopped a Newcastle goal!

    "They look really positive, Steve McClaren's side. They've had four up front at some points already. Siem de Jong is up with Papiss Cisse, Georginio Wijnaldum is just off them and Moussa Sissoko is also up high. 

    "There's no fear in the way they have set up."

    Chance for Newcastle as Siem de Jong collects the ball from Papiss Cisse, but then stands in awe as his goal-bound shot hits his Senegalese team-mate. Good defending from Cisse there, that would have caused Hugo Lloris some trouble in the Spurs goal!

    Newcastle, aiming to win at White Hart Lane for a third time in succession, now make their first attack. Daryl Janmaat is played in by Moussa Sissoko but the Dutchman is offside.

  121. Almost ready

    The players are out and ready. I should point out that Tottenham midfielder Tom Carroll makes his first Premier League start of the season today. Big day for him.

  122. Two steps forward...

    Tottenham v Newcastle (16:00 GMT)

    Jason Roberts

    Former West Brom striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "With 30 goals conceded – it’s obvious where Newcastle's problem is. Georginio Wijnaldum has been an excellent signing but their application is a worry. 

    "They’ve had so many false dawns where they've played well, and then in another game you wonder how bothered they are about winning or competing."

  123. Kick-off approaches

    Tottenham v Newcastle (16:00 GMT)

    The players are in the tunnel, handshakes all around. Five minutes to kick-off.

  124. So solid crew

    Jason Roberts

    Former West Brom striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "I’m so impressed with Spurs and Mauricio Pochettino. The results are excellent but more so the identity he's put in place. That’s the exciting thing about them. 

    "Defensively they’re so solid. He’s added steel to the side and belief and with young English players, which is wonderful - the bravery to put Dele Alli in. 

    "When I first saw him and Eric Dier in midfield I thought what's going on. But the way they get around the pitch is so impressive. 

    "If Saido Berahino came in and added goals to supplement Harry Kane, where would they be?"

    Both teams will be out to achieve significant milestones today.

    After watching Manchester United lose at Bournemouth on Saturday, Tottenham can move into the top four with a win.

    And buoyed by their superior graft against Liverpool, victory for Newcastle would mean they exit the bottom three. 

    All to play for then?

  130. Team News

    Tottenham v Newcastle (16:00 GMT)

    Tottenham bring back the big guns after their 4-1 win over Monaco in the Europa League on Thursday. So Kyle Walker, Jan Vertonghen and Danny Rose return to the defence, while Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane also come back in. Eric Dier is fit to play in midfield. 

    Spurs

    Newcastle are unchanged following their galvanising victory over Liverpool a week ago. Siem de Jong, who was crucial to packing the midfield in that game, will play behind Papiss Cisse while top scorer Georginio Wijnaldum will join the attack from the left.

  133. MOTD commentator's view

    Spurs v Newcastle (16:00 GMT)

    Simon Brotherton

    MOTD commentator at White Hart Lane

    "Newcastle are aiming to win at White Hart Lane for the third season running, but it seems an unlikely outcome for a side with the joint-worst away record in the league.

    "Having said that, who'd have thought they would beat Liverpool last weekend - certainly not me, having seen their awful performance athome to Leicester recently.

    "Tottenham sailed past Monaco on Thursday in the Europa League to win their group and will look to solidify their strong league position over the next three games against sides in the bottom half, with Southampton and Norwich to come after this one."

  134. The evolution of McClaren

    Tottenham v Newcastle (16:00 GMT)

    Steve McLaren

    After being thumped 5-1 by Crystal Palace two weeks ago, and with games to come against Liverpool and Tottenham, it looked like a worrying couple of weeks for Steve McClaren's Newcastle team.

    But last Sunday's surprise win over Jurgen Klopp's side has cast today's match in a different light and, according to McClaren, averted a crisis.

    And the Toon army will travel to the big smoke with some confidence too.
