Newcastle has lost three straight games in the league, having previously gone eight games unbeaten, and is still not safe from relegation in 15th place 9 points above the bottom three.

Tottenham responded well to going behind, equalizing within four minutes when Son crossed for Davies to glance in a header and become the first of three home defenders to score.

Doherty headed in a cross from Harry Kane to make it 2-1 in the 48th and, six minutes later, Son controlled a ball into the middle from Dejan Kulusevski and finished into the corner.

Royal scored his first goal for Tottenham by poking in Doherty’s cross in the 63rd, and Bergwijn raced through the middle of Newcastle’s defense to score the fifth in the 83rd.
