Tottenham threw away a 1-0 half time lead at White Hart Lane, going on to lose 2-1 against strugglers Newcastle United.

Eric Dier opened the scoring on 39 minutes, heading home an excellent Christian Eriksen corner.

But Newcastle came out the much better side after half time, eventually equalising through Aleksandar Mitrovic. Ayoze Perez’s volley won it for the visitors in stoppage time.

Newcastle have now won this fixture in each of the last three seasons. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the performance and result.



  1. In a season were anything and everything is up for grabs a new striker is a must in the window . Missed a big chance this week to stay in with a chance of top four . A gap is opening and players must ask themselves if they really want top four and the manager must ask what is more important . Top four or a cup run . Looserpool proved how close you can come with just the league to play for . Thursday should be for the fringe players and the youngsters ,the rest should rest .

  2. I trust poch however not his boss mr Levy still no work on new ground and you know Enic will send us to Mk as its cheaper like when he buys players top 8 at best the team look completly spent and its not even xmas
    Its time to go its time to go Daneil Levy and uncle joe

  3. Looks like same old Tottenham all over again.Our reaction is now important but I won’t hold my breath next weekend at Southampton.Why Carroll started is beyond me….MP tactically naive and if ” he is happy with his squad”, then God help us as you have to be blind to not realise that we need at least 1 more striker.Unfortunately MP is a yes man to every thing Levy says or thinks.Unfortunately another false dawns beckons…..

  4. Complacent , lacklustre and arrogant ! We missed chance yet again to top4 panic lack of self belief we need to kill off games and teams. Play for 90plus mins and finish the job. Now they must show spirit and fight. Levy get your chq bk out and get a true striker and s creative midfielder. We cannot afford to come away empty handed AGAIN!!!
