Tottenham, who lost 2-3 to Bournemouth in the previous round, had 16 wins, 5 draws, 11 losses and 53 points, widening the gap with the 4th-place rival team, which is the last line to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, to 6 points.
Newcastle (16 wins, 11 draws, 4 losses, 59 points, goal loss +29), who played one less game than Tottenham, jumped to 3rd place, while Manchester United (18 wins, 5 draws, 7 losses, 59 points, goal loss +9) has played two fewer games than Tottenham.
Tottenham couldn’t even widen the gap with the 6th place Aston Villa (15 wins, 6 draws, 11 losses, 51 points), which was closely followed.

Son Heung-min pricked an aggressive pass to Ivan Perisic in the 6th minute of the second half. Perisic’s kick went high.

Harry Kane made up for one goal in the 4th minute of the second half to save the team’s pride.
Tottenham also conceded the second most goals after losing 7-1 in the Premier League against Newcastle in December 1996.
