Steve Bruce claimed his first win as Newcastle United boss as Joelinton’s maiden Premier League goal earned a 1-0 triumph at Tottenham.
Bruce had seen his side slip to a 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal and a tame 3-1 loss to Norwich City in his opening two matches since taking charge.
However, Newcastle produced a superb away performance as Spurs suffered an early slip up in the 2019-20 season.
Saved by VAR last time out at Manchester City, Spurs will be bemoaning it after this defeat.
Tottenham visit Arsenal next in the north London derby while Newcastle welcome Leicester City to St James’ Park in the EFL Cup in midweek before hosting Watford.
