Newcastle vs Tottenham LIVE: Latest updates as Saudi owners look for opening win

NEWCASTLE’S first match under Saudi ownership is back underway after being suspended due to a medical emergency in the stands.

Minutes before half time, Spurs defender Sergio Reguilon spotted a home supporter being tended to and called on the officials to stop the game.

And after consulting with paramedics, referee Andre Marriner made the decision to take both teams off the pitch.

On the field, the Saudi’s time in charge of Newcastle could hardly have started better as Callum Wilson headed the Toon in front after just two minutes.

But it didn’t last as Spurs showed what they’re made of 15 minutes later when Tanguy Ndombele fired a powerful strike into the top corner to level.

Then on 22 minutes, Harry Kane netted a deft chip which VAR rules was onside to put Nuno’s men ahead.

    45+1. The game restarts with a Spurs corner on the right, taken by Son and eventually headed away by Lascelles.

  • THE TEAMS RETURN

    The players are back out and will undergo a three-minute warm-up before commencing with the first half.

    Meanwhile, the supporter involved has been removed from the stand on a stretcher and is on their way to the nearby hospital. The promising news filtering through is that they have been stabilised and we’ll keep our fingers crossed for a speedy recovery.

    A stadium announcement has just confirmed that the players will return to the field of play shortly, and will complete the first half after a short warm-up.

    45+2. Andre Marriner goes across to the far side where the unfortunate incident has occurred, and enters discussion with a steward and then a policeman.

    The referee then decides to take both teams off the field as play is suspended.

    While we don’t know the details of the situation unfolding and send our best wishes to those involved, credit must go to the reaction of the players in alerting the authorities. Sergio Reguilon and Eric Dier particularly were quick and thoughtful in their actions.

    45. The fourth official signals for seven minutes of additional time, but it’s ultimately going to be longer as play is yet to resume.

    43. Referee Andre Marriner calls for a halt in play as Eric Dier races across to ensure the defibrillator is brought across by the Newcastle club doctor Paul Catterson.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    40. As Spurs were preparing to take a throw-in on the far side, both sets of players started to frantically call for assistance from the dugouts.

    It soon becomes clear that there is a emergency in the East Stand with a supporter requiring medical assistance.

    39. Off the crossbar! Spurs almost bag a third as Lucas Moura meets Son’s corner with a header that thumps against the woodwork.

    Spurs are completely on top now.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    38. Tanguy Ndombele has been absolutely brilliant since being moved into his more advanced midfield role.

    Dominant against Aston Villa, the Frenchman is at it again today. He dances through a non-existent Newcastle backline and wins his side another corner.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    36. Martin Tyler uses the term ‘box office’ to describe Allan Saint-Maximin.

    How do you do, fellow kids?

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    35. A slight change in shape for Newcastle with Joe Willock drifting out to the left to allow Joelinton the opportunity to roam centrally.

    How Newcastle could do with the goals of Willock’s purple patch that ended last season.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    33. Ooof! Longstaff finally picks up a yellow card.

    The Newcastle midfielder is cautioned for tripping Lucas Moura.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    31. Nearly! The Newcastle front three combine again as Joelinton slides Wilson through on goal.

    Rather than taking the opportunity on himself, the striker instead looks for a pass to Saint-Maximin at the far post, a decision that is only thwarted by some excellent defending from Reguilon.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    29. Newcastle need to summon the energy of the first ten minutes, and need the help of the crowd. This is where being the self-proclaimed best fans in the world really earns its money.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    27. This game has turned around completely, not just in scoreline but pattern of play.

    It’s now the visitors that look dangerous at every turn, this time forcing a corner off Saint-Maximin.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    25. The cameras pick out Newcastle’s new owners, Yasir Al-Rumayyan and Amanda Staveley, in the director’s box and they look a lot less enthused by the task ahead of them than they did with two minutes on the clock.

    If they think this is a topsy turvy game, wait until they’re in the Championship.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-2 SPURS

    22. What a turnaround!

    Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg chips a pass over the Newcastle defence for Harry Kane to latch on to, and expertly lob over the approaching Karl Darlow.

    However, no sooner had the ball hit the back of the net, Kane’s huge smile turned to a wry one as he noticed the linesman’s flag.

    The video officials take charge of the situation, and soon realise that the Tottenham striker had been played onside by Javier Manquillo on the far side.

    The news filters through to Andre Marriner on the pitch, the goal is awarded and finally the visitors are able to celebrate.

    17. Spurs do punish Newcastle as soon as the intensity drops off!

    Harry Kane and Sergio Reguilon combine on the left with the Spaniard finding the room attack down the flank.

    He picks out the run of Tanguy Ndomeble through the middle, who responds with some lovely close control as he faces up to Jamaal Lascelles.

    With the Newcastle captain backing off, the French midfielder moves in and plants a delicious curler into the far corner past a flat-footed Karl Darlow.

    All square!

    15. Newcastle take the opportunity to sit back after their electric opening – and Spurs sense their chance.

    Ndombele brings play forward and opens up the home defence with a slick pass into the path of Lucas Moura. The Brazilian looks up, sees a number of teammates awaiting his cross, and promptly overhits the ball out of play for a Newcastle throw-in.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-0 SPURS

    13. The visitors finally get themselves forward. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was an unlikely goalscorer last weekend, and he fancies his changes again here.

    The midfielder’s long range drive is straight at Darlow, and easily gathered by the Newcastle goalkeeper.

  • NEWCASTLE 1-0 SPURS

    11. Just two touches for Harry Kane in the opening 11 minutes. The striker’s anonymity is becoming a regular concern.
