A week is a long time in football and after a day to forget in East Anglia against Norwich City, Newcastle United responded valiantly in their trip to face Tottenham Hotspur in North London.

The Magpies put in a resilient performance against the Champions League finalists, with club-record signing Joelinton opening his account with the only goal of the game.

That result saw Steve Bruce pick up his first points as Newcastle manager and provides plenty of encouragement, as they become only the second time to secure a win against Spurs in their new stadium.

A fantastic performance from the team provides a solid platform to build upon and gave the travelling faithful an afternoon to celebrate in the North London sun.

 

It will give supporters a fantastic feeling on the Bank Holiday weekend and provides a solid platform to build upon, as Newcastle prepare to face Watford next weekend at St. James Park - a side yet to pick up a point this season.

Fans flocked to social media after the match to heap praise upon the side, with many identifying different individuals who put in a superb shift.
