Seventh cloud to reality check as Tottenham were crushed by Newcastle

Tottenham Hotspur were outclassed by Newcastle United last weekend, as the squad displayed their worst performance since Ange Postecoglou took charge of the club last summer.

It was an horrendous game from the Spurs point of view, as Isak ran riots with a brace as Newcastle United won 4-0 against the Lilywhites. It was a game headed one way, and that performance would prove nightmares for Tottenham’s defending line as well as fans alike.

It was a total tactical dominance from the Magpies as they triumphed over Tottenham, as former Newcastle United and Arsenal striker Malcolm Macdonald insists that he has never seen a better tactical dominance than what Eddie Howe did to Tottenham at St. James Park. 

To put it in perspective, the performance by Newcastle was arguably a better one from the Magpies than last year’s somewhat bizarre dismantling of a team at its lowest point. This time around, they got to Tottenham when they were flying on the seventh cloud and came to the Tyneside with confidence, only to be outclassed in all aspects of the game.

In his column for ChronicleLive, Malcolm Macdonald wrote

“I’ve been round football for quite a while as a player and manager but I have to say I have never witnessed a better tactical master class than Eddie Howe put on to destroy Spurs 4-0.”

There is some fair sound to it; however, for Tottenham, they need to learn from the humbling at St James Park, move on, and prepare for the next game as the club chases a top-four finish in the Premier League.
