Tottenham missed the opportunity to climb into the top four following a 2-2 draw at Newcastle.
Harry Kane’s brace had cancelled out Joelington’s opener, but Arsenal loanee Joe Willock rescued a late point for the Magpies to leave Spurs fifth, two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
Here’s how we rated the players on the day:
Hugo Lloris, 7 – Made three excellent saves, including a fine double-stop from Dwight Gayle, but could nothing about either goal.
Japhet Tanganga, 5 – Denied his first professional goal by Miguel Almiron’s header off the line, although he wasn’t convincing at the other end.
Davinson Sanchez, 3 – Absolutely woeful performance from start to finish. Kept gifting chances to Newcastle throughout the afternoon with his sloppy distribution, one of which led to their opener. Had it not been for some poor Newcastle finishing, he could have cost his side even greater.
Joe Rodon, 7 – A few wayward passes aside, the Welshman performed well next to a hapless Sanchez.
Sergio Regulion, 6 – Looked off the pace first-half, but improved after the break and put over some really inviting crosses, but defensively he was suspect.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 6 – Should have done more to prevent Newcastle’s opener, but was one of Spurs’ only bright spots in what was a poor second-half.
Tanguy Ndombele, 7 – Lo Celso’s inclusion allowed him to break forward, and he got into some excellent positions. Assisted Kane’s second and should have had another, had Kane not missed a great chance.
Lucas Moura, 5 – Bright at times, but unable to replicate his form from in recent weeks.
Giovani Lo Celso, 5 – Added little.
Carlos Vinicius, 3 – Had just 15 touches, offered nothing and was hooked at the break.
Harry Kane, 8 – Tapped home to equaliser before thumping home moments later for his and Tottenham’s second. Missed two good chances to make it 3-1, though, the second which struck the outside of the post, just 52 seconds before Willock levelled.
Heung Min Son, 5 – Returned following a hamstring problem, but couldn’t really get into the game.
Erik Lamela, 6 – Made his first Premier League outing since his red card against Arsenal and added some energy into the Tottenham attack but was wasteful.
Gareth Bale, N/A – Replaced Lo Celso late on his only touch was to immediately send a free-kick into the stands.
