Tottenham scored a late winner for the third game in succession to beat Newcastle United 1-0 and move up to second in the Premier League.

It was a goal that felt harsh on the Magpies, after they had defended in resolute fashion for 82 minutes, before Son Heung-min’s long range strike was fumbled by Dubravka, on a day when the goalkeeper had otherwise performed admirably.

​Tottenham struggled to break Newcastle down for much of the game despite dominating possession, with Newcastle content to maintain a compact shape by keeping men behind the ball in an effort to frustrate the hosts.
