Newcastle United hammered Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 at St James’ Park.

Newcastle United ‘dismantled’ Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur at St James’ Park.

An Alexander Isak double - taking him to 20 goals for the season - and one each from man of the match Anthony Gordon and Fabian Schar sent the Magpies to sixth in the table, just one place behind Spurs.

Isak’s brace ensured he became the first Newcastle player to score 20 goals in a top flight campaign since Shearer (28), in 2003/04.

The win also keeps the Magpies right in the hunt for a European place for next season.

And Shearer has taken to X, formerly known as Twitter, to express his delight at the three points - and poke fun at Newcastle for taking apart Ange Postecoglou’s side.

Shearer said: “The Toon have dismantled Ange Ball today!!!! Better in every single position. Spurs all over the place.”
