Ahead of Newcastle’s Super Sunday trip to Tottenham this weekend, we look back at the last five Premier League meetings between the two sides/.

Intriguingly, the away team has come out on top in each of the last four games.

Newcastle 1 Tottenham 3 – April 19, 2015

Newcastle suffered a sixth straight defeat after strikes from Nacer Chadli, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane, with his 30th goal of the season, gave Spurs the win.

Following a fans boycott in protest of Mike Ashley’s running of the club, the lowest attendance at St James’s Park that season saw Jack Colback draw Newcastle level just after half time.

But Eriksen’s free kick and Kane’s late goal sealed the win to move the Londoners up to sixth in the Premier League and see Kane become the first Spurs striker to net 30 goals in a season since Gary Lineker in 1991-92.

Tottenham 1 Newcastle 2 – October 26, 2014

Ayoze Perez’s first goal for Newcastle eased the pressure on Alan Pardew as the Magpies came from behind to beat Spurs.

Looking for back-to-back wins early on in the season, the visitors fell behind to Emmanuel Adebayor’s header on 18 minutes.

But Sammy Ameobi’s equaliser 10 seconds after the restart and Perez’s strike completed the turnaround to give Newcastle their first away win since March.

Emmanuel Adebayor’s double maintained Tottenham’s search for a top-four finish as the visitors comfortably saw off the goal-shy Magpies.

Paulinho and Nacer Chadli also got on the scoresheet for the visitors against a Newcastle side who had not scored a home goal in more than six hours of Premier League football.

Adebayor put Spurs ahead in the first half, when he tapped in after Tim Krul had palmed Nabil Bentaleb’s cross into his path.

The striker was also involved in the second, when Krul dived low to stop his shot only for Paulinho to follow up.

Adebayor then grabbed his second with a volley, before Chadli rounded off the scoring with a curling strike.

Tim Krul had one of his best games in a Newcastle shirt to date as he made a string of outstanding saves to earn the Magpies the win.

Loic Remy’s 13th minute strike put the visitors ahead, before Krul took centre stage.

The Dutch keeper made 14 saves in total at White Hart Lane that day, the most made by any keeper in the Premier League in a single game.

Tottenham 2 Newcastle 1 – February 9, 2013

Gareth Bale scored his fourth goal in three matches to sink the Magpies at White Hart Lane.

Bale gave the hosts a great start when his free-kick beat Tim Krul after five minutes.

Yoan Gouffran got Newcastle back on level terms 19 minutes later, when his shot went in off a slight deflection.

But they couldn’t hold on as Bale ran onto Kyle Walker’s ball before slotting home 12 minutes from time to give Spurs all three points.
