Harry Kane scored his first EPL goal of the season as Tottenham beat Newcastle 3 – 2. Watched by the club’s new non-executive chair Yasir Al-Rumayyan and part-owner Amanda Staveley, Newcastle must have hoped they were seeing signs of a positive new future as Callum Wilson returned from injury to head the hosts ahead after two minutes, and St James’ Park went wild with delight.

Newcastle’s new era under its Saudi Arabian-led owners got off to a woeful start as Tottenham came from behind to beat Steve Bruce’s side. That start must have also given optimism to Bruce, marking his 1,000th game in management as he clings to hope he may continue in the job.

But then reality struck for a team yet to win in eight Premier League games this season as Spurs scored twice in five minutes. First, Tanguy Ndombele fired in a right-footed drive, before Harry Kane scored his first league goal of the season when he beat the Newcastle offside trap to dink in, the goal awarded by the video assistant referee after initially being ruled out.

The game was then halted when a fan suffered a medical emergency in the stands. Supporters and players – including Eric Dier – played their part in alerting medics to the seriousness of the situation before the game was suspended. Play resumed with seven minutes of the first half remaining, and Tottenham extended their lead when Son Heung-min slid in at the back post for his fourth of the season.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, who moved up to fifth in the table, looked comfortable in the second half as the mood turned sour towards Bruce, with home fans calling for him to be sacked.

A poor audition to stay in the job was made worse when substitute Jonjo Shelvey received a second yellow card for a rash challenge on Sergio Reguilon after 84 minutes. And despite a brief response when Dier’s own goal made it 3-2, the result left Newcastle next-to-bottom of the table with a huge transformation needed to turn the club into the superpower that the new owners hope for.
