Newcastle Shock Tottenham at Home:
Steve Bruce claimed his first win as Newcastle United boss as Joelinton’s maiden Premier League goal earned a 1-0 triumph at Tottenham.
Bruce had seen his side slip to a 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal and a tame 3-1 loss to Norwich City in his opening two matches since taking charge.
Those setbacks only served to deepen the gloom that followed Rafael Benitez’s departure, but Newcastle produced a superb away performance as Spurs suffered an early slip up in the 2019-20 season.
Tottenham were behind for much of their opening 3-1 win over Aston Villa but were unable to produce a similar turnaround this time, though the hosts were controversially denied a penalty after Jamaal Lascelles appeared to impede Harry Kane.
