Newcastle 2-2 Tottenham: Joe Willock’s late equaliser secures vital point in relegation battle

Joe Willock’s late equaliser secured a deserved – and vital – 2-2 draw for Newcastle against Tottenham, with Spurs missing the chance to go fourth.

All eyes were on Newcastle after a dismal defeat to Brighton two weeks ago, but the international break seemed to breathe new life into the team as they deservedly went ahead when Joelinton (28) fired home.

But the lead was short-lived as Kane bundled in the equaliser less than two minutes later (30), before powering home a superb second not long after (34).

Much like the first-half goals, it was a short period towards the end of the game that ultimately decided the outcome. Kane spurned a golden chance to wrap up the three points and his hat-trick when he clipped the post, before Arsenal loanee Willock (86) found the net via the underside of the crossbar two minutes later.

It was the least Newcastle deserved after a much-improved performance. They remain 17th ahead of Fulham’s trip to Aston Villa later on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, but could still end the day in the bottom three on goal difference should Fulham win.

Tottenham miss the chance to go into the top four, instead moving into fifth, two points behind Chelsea. West Ham could displace them when they travel to Wolves on Monday Night Football.
