Callum Wilson scored a VAR-controversy penalty in stoppage-time as Newcastle somehow claimed a point against Tottenham.

Lucas Moura opened the scoring for Jose Mourinho’s side, who then missed a host of great opportunities to move further in front.

And Spurs were made to pay deep into added-time when Wilson swept home from 12-yards to earn the visitors an undeserved point.

Here’s how we rated the players on the day:

Hugo Lloris, 6 – Had nothing to do all afternoon. Got a hand to Wilson’s penalty, but not enough to keep it out.

Matt Doherty, 7 – By far his best performance since arriving from Wolves. Looked far more comfortable in possession and attacked well.

Davinson Sanchez, 7 – Superb showing. Defended everything that came his way.

Eric Dier, 7 – Didn’t do too much wrong and was extremely unlucky to conceded the penalty. Looked fuming when leaving the pitch.

Ben Davies, 6 – Almost involved in a calamitous own-goal with Hojbjerg.

Harry Winks, 8 – Much better than any of his previous performances this season. Got around the pitch well and was notably better defensively.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 8 – Comfortably his best display in a Tottenham shirt. Gave away the foul which led to the free-kick that created the penalty, but faultless besides that.

Giovani Lo Celso, 7 – Forced Darlow into a wonderful early stop from a free-kick. At the heart of everything good for Spurs before he was replaced late on.

Lucas Moura, 4 – Tapped home his first Premier League goal in 2020, but was wasteful from then on in and was extremely fortunate to remain on the pitch for as long as he did.

Heung Min Son, 7 – Hit the post and then the bar with spectacular first-half efforts. Surprisingly replaced at the break, although it was confirmed after the game that he picked up a hamstring injury.

Harry Kane, 6 – He’ll wonder how he left the pitch without finding the net. Missed two wonderful early chances before his battle with Karl Darlow continued soon after when the goalkeeper made an outstanding save from his curling strike. Assisted Moura’s goal with a fine cross, but a frustrating second-half, however.

Substitutes:

Steven Bergwijn, 4 – Poor once again.

Tanguy Ndombele, 7 – Really bright, showed some great touches.

Erik Lamela, N/A – Introduced late on and almost doubled the lead from a free-kick.

  1. So we were robbed along with Palace and Brighton this weekend. As above, when you have a host of chances you fail to take the inevitable tends to happen. I suppose they have been fairly consistent with these decisions across the European leagues.

    Another 3 games this week so we have to motor on and not dwell on this. Would love to beat the chavs Tuesday as they normally mug us off. Anyways, onwards and upwards for week as international break looms, but alas no R&R for most teams players. COYS
