Michael Owen says he was disappointed in Tottenham's loss to Newcastle.

Tottenham were stunned to lose at Newcastle last weekend, and former Premier League striker Michael Owen says he was 'bitterly disappointed' to see their late collapse, he told BetVictor.

Spurs had seemed to be coasting to a home victory before late changes from Newcastle manager Steve McClaren changed the game, with substitutes Aleksandr Mitrovic and Ayoze Perez leading the Toon to a second successive victory.

Manchester United's shock loss to Bournemouth ensures Tottenham remain just three points off a top four spot, but also represents an opportunity missed.

Owen believes Spurs will bounce back with a victory away to Southampton this weekend, telling BetVictor that they are generously priced to pull off a victory.

He said: "I was bitterly disappointed with Spurs’ second-half performance at White Hart Lane on Sunday as Mauricio Pochettino’s side threw away a lead losing 2-1 to Newcastle and thereby ending a run of 14 league games without defeat.

"Nevertheless, Spurs boast a terrific record at St Mary’s, winning five of their last six games at the Saints, and look over-priced at 15/8 to bounce back to winning ways."

If Owen was disappointed by seeing Tottenham lose to one of his former teams, that's nothing compared to how fans felt at seeing their side's unbeaten league run come to an end in such surprise circumstances.

A victory against Southampton will set Spurs back on their way again, as with no Europa League games until February, there is a real chance to kick on and focus on the Premier League.
