Brand New Owners but the Same Old Result for Newcastle United. Newcastle lost their first match under new Ownership by their Saudi Owners at home. Tottenham Hotspurs under Nuno Espirito Santo were away from St. James Park for their Premier league Clash against Newcastle United.
There was a festival atmosphere ahead of kick-off as the Newcastle fans welcomed their new owners into the directors’ box. It began well on the field too as Callum Wilson nodded home inside two minutes to send the stands into raptures. The hosts went through the Spurs defence and scored a Goal to celebrate their New Ownership in style.
However, things soon unravelled as Tottenham quickly took the lead. Tanguy Ndombele curled home a wonderful equalizer before Harry Kane opened his Premier League account for the season. His strike had initially been ruled out for offside, but a VAR review overturned the decision and the goal stood.

An Unfortunate incident occurred towards the End of the First Half that saw the game getting suspended for 24 minutes. A Newcastle supporter needed urgent medical attention and the teams returned to the dressing room. The supporter received treatment and was in a Stable condition later.
When play resumed, Tottenham added their third. Kane and Heung-Min Son (45+4) linked up for the first time since February, with the South Korean forward poking home, and taking them to within one goal of Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba’s Premier League combined goals record.
Newcastle was reduced to 10 men late in the second half as Jonjo Shelvey was sent off for two quick yellow cards. However, soon after, Eric Dier’s calamitous own goal gave Newcastle a glimmer of hope, but Tottenham was able to see the game out.
The victory sees Tottenham into fifth place, going level on 15 points with Brighton in fourth. Newcastle remains second-bottom with just three points this season. The Defeat came as an Early reminder for the new owners of the work to do at their new club.
