Newcastle United player ratings as January signing is ‘absolutely anonymous’ against Tottenham Hotspur

Newcastle United player ratings from the 5-1 hammering against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

Newcastle United suffered a 5-1 hammering at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur - making it three defeats on the spin for Eddie Howe’s side.

Fabian Schar’s free-kick on 38 minutes handed the Magpies a shock lead but that was as good as it got in North London for the visitors.

Ben Davies levelled before half-time. And after a team talk from Antonio Conte, Spurs tore Newcastle to shreds in the second-half.

Matt Doherty, Son Heung-min, Emerson Royal and Steven Bergwijn inflicted a heavy scoreline on Howe’s men to make three losses in a row.

United, still nine points above the Premier League zone, return to St James’ Park on Friday to host Wolves needing a reaction.

Here, our writer Jordan Cronin dishes out his Newcastle player ratings from the defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
