Tottenham's Home Record against Newcastle United

Newcastle United have maintained their early season form and have moved into fifth place in the Premier League with 42 points.  Since the beginning of January they have won four out of five League matches, including a home success over Manchester United.  Their only defeat was in their last visit to London, going down 2 - 5 at Craven Cottage.

Recent Games against Newcastle at White Hart Lane:  
Apr. 2009  PL  Won 1 - 0  Bent
As Newcastle battled to avoid relegation, Darren Bent's goal midway through the first half didn't help their cause.  Spurs, kept their second successive clean sheet and after their early season problems had climbed to ninth. 

Mar. 2008  PL  Lost 1 - 4  Bent
The euphoria of the previous month's Carling Cup win was starting to wane as Spurs conceded four goals for the third time in six League games.  Bent gave Spurs the lead, midway through the half but once Newcastle equalised on the stroke of half-time, the visitors showed a greater desire to win.  

Jan. 2007  PL  Lost 2 - 3  Defoe, Berbatov 
Jermain Defoe put Spurs ahead after fourteen minutes but Newcastle were level two minutes later.  Dimitar Berbatov restored Spurs lead in the second half but two goals in a minute gave Newcastle the points.  The visitors' second goal was a stunning strike from Martins. 

Dec. 2005  PL  Won 2 - 0  Tainio, Mido 
Spurs were fourth and making a concerted attempt to attain a Champions League place and another comfortable win kept them on target.  Teemu Tainio scored his first goal for Spurs, just before the interval, and Mido made victory secure midway through the second half.

Apr. 2005  PL  Won 1 - 0  Defoe 
Spurs won comfortably but had only a late first half goal from Defoe to show for their effort and had to withstand late pressure from Newcastle as they tried to snatch a point.

Mar. 2004  PL  Won 1 - 0  O'Brien o.g. 
The match which looked to be heading for a scoreless draw was settled in the final minutes when the Newcastle central defender, Andy O'Brien, put through his own goal

Prior to 2004 Spurs lost both home matches in January, 2002 (1 - 3) and 2003 (0 - 1).  Iversen scored the goal in 2002 and was also among the scorers in the 3 - 1 success in August, 1999 along with Ferdinand and Tim Sherwood.

Memorable Matches:
1st January, 2001  PL  Won 4 - 2  Doherty, Anderton (p), Rebrov, Ferdinand 
Newcastle took the lead midway through the first half but Spurs were level with a Gary Doherty header within five minutes.  Darren Anderton put them ahead with a penalty three minutes later but missed another within two as Newcastle were reduced to ten men.  Sergei Rebrov increased the lead five minutes later.  Shortly after half-time, Neil Sullivan was sent off, having conceded a penalty from which the visitors scored.  Newcastle were then reduced to nine men a few minutes later.  Les Ferdinand scored a fourth with over ten minutes remaining as Spurs secured their first win in seven games.

18th November, 1950  1st Div.  Won 7 - 0  Ramsey (p), Walters, Bennett, Baily, Medley (3)

Spurs had just returned to the 1st Division for the first time since before the 2nd World War and were on their way to winning their first League title.  Arthur Rowe's 'Push and Run' side were at their very best and completely overran Newcastle that day in what has been described as 'one of the finest displays ever put on by a Tottenham team.'

At the start of the day, Newcastle were second in the table with Spurs fourth but Tottenham had won their last seven League matches.  The visitors were three down at half-time,  Les Bennett, Eddie Baily and Les Medley having scored for Spurs.  Medley scored the fourth, Sonny Walters added a fifth, before Medley completed his hat-trick.  Alf Ramsey added to the visitors' misery with a penalty.

At the end of the season Spurs were League Champions for the first time and Newcastle won the FA Cup.

**In true Spurs fashion, however, they went out the next weekend and lost 2 - 3 at Huddersfield Town.

Spurs will be looking to return to winning ways as they proceeded through a tricky series of matches in February.  They saw victory snatched from them at Newcastle in October by a late goal but will hope to improve on what hasn't been a great home record against Newcastle in the past decade.
