In what was an incredible last 15 minutes for Newcastle after both Ayoze Perez and Aleksandar Mitrovic had come on for Siem de Jong and Papiss Cisse Newcastle came back from the dead with two goals to win the game after we had gone down 1-0 just before half time when we gave away a sloppy goal to Eric Dier from a corner.
And it looked in the first 25 minutes of the second half that we didn´t have much of a chance of coming back in this game but Rob Elliot again pout in some good saves to keep the score down to 1-0 – and with that we were always in with a chance.
This is Spurs first defeat since the opening day on August 8th against the Red Devils.
And two minutes after Mitrovic came on he scored as Coloccini headed a corner back over from the far post and Mbemba headed the ball forward and Mitrovic smashed the ball home almost on the goal line to make it 1-1.
That was Mitro´s third Premier League goal of the season and he scored it after being on less than two minutes..
With just 15 minutes to go Newcastle were coming at Spurs hard for the 3 points and we seemed to come to life with the goal and had a few chances to score a second.
And then would you believe it, but with four minutes of stoppage time it looked like it would end with a good 1-1 draw for Newcastle – but then Perez with about 95 seconds to go in the game somehow from the bye line smashed the ball into the back of the net – an incredible goal from the young Spaniard.
And the final whistle was blown as we had won the game 2-1 and the Spurs crowd were stunned into silence – but not the Newcastle fans – and that was our first two wins in a row this year.
And that was the third time in a row that we have won this fixture.
All credit again to our goalkeeper who made the saves to keep the score down to 1-0 and even before Spurs scored their goals Rob made two great saves from Lamela.
It was an incredible win for Newcastle United today and a brilliant goal from Ayoze Perez and that´s a massive 3 points for the Magpies.
Another incredible result for Newcastle but until the two young guns Mitrovic and Perez came on all looked lost today.
Incredible result and a fantastic comeback when all seemed lost.
We´ll be back with a full report later – once I get find those blood pressure pills.
Howay The Lads!!
