Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-1 to Newcastle United at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Newcastle United came from behind to beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at White Hart Lane this weekend.

Emmanuel Adebayor put Spurs ahead after 18 minutes, heading home Ryan Mason's delivery. But Alan Pardew made tactical changes at half-time and they worked a treat, with Sammy Ameobi scoring just 10 seconds after joining the action.

Fellow substitute Remy Cabella would also play a huge part in the result, crossing for Ayoze Perez to score his first Newcastle goal in his first Premier League start.

That result is another blow for Tottenham who continue to blow hot and cold, while Newcastle will be pleased to climb clear of the relegation zone with their first away win of a campaign that suddenly looks on the up.

The result means Tottenham slipped to 11th place in the table while the Magpies climbed to 14th.
