Liam Kennedy's Newcastle United player ratings: Who shone and who struggled as Arsenal loanee rescues point against Tottenham
Steve Bruce’s Magpies rescued a point against Tottenham – but how did his Newcastle United players rate at St James’ Park?
Joelinton put the home side ahead before a Harry Kane double gave Tottenham Hotspur the lead in the North East.
But Joe Willock netted a late equaliser to hand Newcastle a vital point.
The draw against Spurs means the Magpies’ last win came back in February when his side defeated Southampton 3-2 at St James’ Park.
Newcastle United are hovering just one place above the relegation zone but they do have a game in hand on 18th-placed Fulham.
However, the London club play against Aston Villa in the late kick-off this evening.
If Scott Parker’s side manages a win, they will send Newcastle United into the relegation zone for the first time since October 2019.
