Tottenham 5-1 Newcastle: Ruthless Spurs Fires EPL Top Four Warning

Son Heung-min stars as Conte’s side leapfrog Arsenal into fourth

Son Heung-min netted his 14th goal of the season and produced an assist as Tottenham Hotspur moved up to fourth spot with a 5-1 win against Newcastle United.

Newcastle had taken the lead on 32 minutes, through defender Fabian Schar’s free-kick into the bottom-right corner.

Spurs levelled four minutes later, when Ben Davies met Son’s inviting delivery with a glancing header for his first Premier League goal since September 2017.

Matt Doherty added Spurs’ third three minutes after half-time, converting Harry Kane’s superb cross at the back post with a diving header.

Son made it nine goals in his last nine home Premier League matches with a composed finish from Dejan Kulusevski’s 54th-minute cross before Emerson Royal got on the scoresheet with a close-range finish on 63 minutes.

Steven Bergwijn came off the bench to wrap up the victory, firing in after being teed up by another substitute, Lucas Moura, on 83 minutes.

A fifth win in six takes Spurs above Arsenal to fourth position on goal difference, with both teams on 54 points. The Gunners have two matches in hand.

Newcastle drop one place to 15th, nine points clear of the relegation zone.
