Tottenham vs Newcastle LIVE!

Spurs were Down Under in Australia for a game with their Premier League rivals in a post-season friendly. Both teams sent almost full-strength sides out in Melbourne, just days after the conclusion of the Premier League season.

James Maddison put Tottenham ahead in the first half having taken advantage of a poor pass out by Nick Pope, controlling with a hint of handball and weaving past two challenges to slam home.

Alexander Isak levelled up late in the half before a flurry of substitutions dominated the second and it finished level at 1-1. A penalty shootout decided the official winner, which Newcastle won after Bryan Gil’s early miss.

Match report

13:10 , Alex Young

Tottenham and Newcastle played out a 1-1 draw in their controversial post-season friendly in Melbourne before a late penalty shootout saw the Magpies earn the spoils.

Spurs controlled the bulk of the possession during the first half with neither side too keen to rush into much of an off-the-ball press in what was generally a competitive friendly Down Under, which attracted criticism for its timing between the season’s end and the summer’s major tournaments.

Change in goal for Spurs, Alfie Whiteman replaces Brandon Austin. It’s a long way for Guglielmo Vicario to come and sit on the bench..!

Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle | 72 mins

12:26 , Marc Mayo

Just wide by Dane Scarlett!

Yago Santiago crosses well from the right and his fellow sub nods off-target.

Callum Wilson departs in a fresh round of Newcastle changes and it’s a huge cheer for Aussie-raised teenager Garang Kuol. Lucas De Bolle is also on.

Spurs bring Tyrese Hall on for Radu Dragusin.

Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle | 68 mins

12:22 , Marc Mayo

Two more Tottenham substitutions, the game is really lacking much flow now.

Dejan Kulusevski and Brennan Johnson replaced by Dane Scarlett and Yago Santiago.

Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle | 65 mins

12:19 , Marc Mayo

Smart sliding block by Ashley Phillips prevents a Newcastle cross reaching its target.

The heavens have now opened over Melbourne, with Ange Postecoglou quickly pulling his hood up.

Bryan Gil and Premier League 2 Player of the Year nominee Jamie Donley come on.

Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle | 58 mins

12:12 , Marc Mayo

Good feet by Bruno Guimaraes before he fires low and hard at Brandon Austin, who holds out on easily enough. That prompts a round of ‘Bruno, Bruno’ chants from the Melbourne crowd, not the first time we’ve heard that today.

Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle | 54 mins

12:08 , Marc Mayo

We’ve got a flurry of seagulls hanging about the MCG, luckily none of which have landed on the pitch yet.

Oliver Skipp earns the first booking of the game for pecking at the back of Bruno Guimaraes as the Brazilian looked to break free.

Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle | 52 mins

12:05 , Marc Mayo

Newcastle will the territory in the early exchanges of this half.

A run of corners sees Spurs clear despite slight calls of a handball.

Heung-min Son’s fine through ball on the turn nearly reaches Emerson Royal’s burst of pace but Dan Burn slides in to concede a corner.

Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle | 49 mins

12:02 , Marc Mayo

Emerson Royal is now the right-back for Tottenham, George Abbott is the left-back.

It’s Oliver Skipp caught in possession though and a long-ranger from Harvey Barnes flashes wide.

Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle | 47 mins

12:01 , Marc Mayo

Pape Sarr attempts to wow the crowd with a shot from all of 60 yards as Nick Pope lingers off his line... safe to say it ends up nowhere near the goal!

Let’s get the second half of this Global Football Week game going, then.

For those wondering, that is the official title of this run of friendlies in Australia. Arsenal Women play an A-League Women All Stars team before Newcastle take on the Men’s All Stars later this week.

Watch Alexander Isak make it 1-1

11:52 , Marc Mayo

Newcastle had struggled to get him in the game, so it was a welcome hand from the Spurs keeper.

Melbourne fans not short of entertainment

11:48 , Marc Mayo

It’s been pretty competitive stuff in Australia.

Tottenham have had the better of it but only that James Maddison goal as a result of their possession, with the England man lucky to avoid being pulled up for handball before he scored.

Brennan Johnson saw a big chance denied by Nick Pope before Brandon Austin’s spilled cross allowed Alexander Isak to level up late on.

11:42 , Marc Mayo

One added minute comes and goes.

We’re level in Melbourne.

GGGOOOOAAAALLL!!! Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle | Isak, 45'

11:41 , Marc Mayo


Newcastle finally find Alexander Isak and he scores.

Spurs leave space in behind and Jacob Murphy is played in to cross low, which is palmed into the six-yard box by Brandon Austin for Isak to tap home!

Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle | 44 mins

11:39 , Marc Mayo

Great work by Lewis Hall on the left flank before Bruno Guimaraes overhits the through ball to Alexander Isak. The service to the Swede has been poor from Newcastle in this half.

Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle | 40 mins

11:35 , Marc Mayo


Lovely low cross from Heung-min Son meets Brennan Johnson and Nick Pope denies his effort from point-blank range!

Watch James Maddison score Spurs goal

11:34 , Marc Mayo

Lovely run and finish... definitely handball.

Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle | 38 mins

11:33 , Marc Mayo

Newcastle captain Kieran Trippier is taken off.

Perhaps a pre-planned change given his recent return from injury? England will hope so!

Jacob Murphy comes on to play right-back.

Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle | 33 mins

11:28 , Marc Mayo

That would almost certainly have been ruled out by VAR..!

But this is a friendly after all and far more important than the handball, from a Spurs point of view, was James Maddison’s delightful dribble before a powerful finish.

Spurs ahead one-zip.

GGGGOOOOOAAALLLL!! Tottenham 1-0 Newcastle | Maddison, 32'

11:27 , Marc Mayo


Nick Pope’s sloppy pass is grabbed by James Maddison, there’s a hint of handball in his control before he weaves past two men and fires into the roof of the net!

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 30 mins

11:25 , Marc Mayo

Spurs pushing hard for the opener and a melee in the box almost sees James Maddison break through.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 28 mins

11:23 , Marc Mayo

The crowd is certainly getting stuck into it with cheers for Harvey Barnes’ lovely turn in the midfield.

A break in play as Joelinton looks to have taken a whack to the knee.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 25 mins

11:20 , Marc Mayo

Dejan Kulusevski controls a forward ball expertly on the edge of the box before James Maddison’s scuffed left-footed effort almost falls for Pape Sarr’s run.

Tottenham upping the pressure now, Kieran Trippier fouling Heung-min Son. A good laugh between the old teammates as they hit the deck.

Spurs play it short and the same players collide in the box, Son having the softest of penalty appeals turned down.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 23 mins

11:18 , Marc Mayo

Tottenham deal with another Newcastle corner and again Dejan Kulusevski holds it up on the counter.

We’re waiting for someone to take a risk and Pedro Porro is slipped in behind, only for his cross to be scrambled away.

James Maddison then whips a shot wide of Nick Pope’s goal from 18 yards out. Wouldn’t have counted, the flag is up.

And we have a new, un-ripped shirt for Dan Burn.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 20 mins

11:14 , Marc Mayo

Brandon Austin palms away a corner from under his crossbar and Tottenham look to break.

Dejan Kulusevski with some smart hold-up play but the move eventually collapses. The Swede has the capability to be a bit of a target man in the central striker’s role. You could argue that’s exactly what Spurs need.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 17 mins

11:12 , Marc Mayo

Spurs with the bulk of the possession so far as Newcastle look to play on the break, and almost release Miguel Almiron into space after repelling a cross.

Just the one shot apiece and neither were on target.

Micky van de Ven earns a big round of applause from the Tottenham half of the crown with a trademark rush back to cover a runner and win the ball.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 12 mins

11:06 , Marc Mayo

Dan Burn has a ripped shirt after a tangle with Dejan Kulusevski, just in case anyone was doubting the ferocity of this match!

A pretty decent start in terms of tempo, both teams effectively taking turns to have a go. Not a huge amount of off-the-ball press.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 9 mins

11:02 , Marc Mayo

Dejan Kulusevski playing as the central striker with Heung-min Son wide left.

James Maddison feeds the Swede into his feet on the 18-yard line, before the bounce of the ball favours Newcastle from Son’s cross and a goal kick is given.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 6 mins

11:00 , Marc Mayo

Lovely spin by Elliot Anderson wins a foul off Micky van de Ven up the pitch.

Good chance for Newcastle to load the box, but there’s a foul in the box from Kieran Trippier’s cross.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 4 mins

10:57 , Marc Mayo

Spurs with a big penalty appeal!

Heung-min Son snatches possession in the Newcastle final third from a sloppy pass, he shoots from range and the block is contested.

The referee turns Tottenham down, replays show it hit Emil Krafth’s leg and maybe his lowered hand.

Alexander Isak shoots over down the other end.

Tottenham 0-0 Newcastle | 2 mins

10:55 , Marc Mayo

Emerson Royal back to left-back as expected for Spurs in their 4-3-3, Newcastle set up likewise with Harvey Barnes on the left and Miguel Almiron the right wing.

Tottenham vs Newcastle | Kick-off!

10:54 , Marc Mayo

Think the pitchside steam jet caught Heung-min Son out a bit as he walked onto the pitch, ducking his head as it went off right next to him.

The two teams line up, Spurs in all white and Newcastle in their home strip too.

Good number of fans in, a few empty areas of this goliath of an arena but an absolute total guess would suggest in the region of 40,000 in attendance. The commentator says 80,000 but that feels quite optimistic.

A little bit behind the scheduled kick-off time, which isn’t a big surprise for these friendly games, we are underway in Melbourne!

Here come the players!

10:45 , Marc Mayo

The pyrotechnics, fireworks and light show have been entertaining those inside the MCG and a trumpeter on the pitch plays out ‘When the Spurs go marching in’ to rally the fans.

The Newcastle supporters are waving black and white flags, too.

A big reception for Ange Postecoglou as he emerges first.

Kieran Trippier and Heung-min Son then lead the teams out.

'Mad' friendly generates controversy

10:35 , Marc Mayo

The decision of Tottenham and Newcastle to jet to the other side of the planet for a friendly days after the season ends has not been universally welcomed.

With Euro 2024 and the Copa America coming up, and managers regularly complaining of a hectic schedule, there has not been a shortage of pundits lamenting this game.

"Can you imagine if you're a player who is playing in either the Copa America or Euro 2024 having to do that? Madness. Crazy," Alan Shearer told Match Of The Day.

"I wouldn't be happy at all. It's crazy for Newcastle to go and play Spurs there on Wednesday night and then another game."

Let’s see how the circumstances affect the sort of entertainment we get out on the pitch...

Tottenham vs Newcastle | Countdown to kick-off

10:30 , Marc Mayo

The warm-ups are wrapping up in Melbourne as fans continue to file in, it will be interesting to see how much of the 95,000-seater MCG we fill today.

Cristian Romero sends emotional message to Tottenham fans

10:25 , Marc Mayo

Cristian Romero believes Tottenham “deserved” more from Ange Postecoglou’s first season in charge.

The Argentine believes it was “one of the best seasons” but conceded a he “cannot be 100 per cent happy” about it.

“One of the best seasons, but I cannot be 100 per cent happy,” he wrote on X.

“This team deserved more, this club and its fans deserve to win! I, along with my teammates, have given everything to try and in my life I will never stop fighting to get higher and to get better every day.

“Thanks to our fans for always being there, for better or for worse! London is white, come on you Spurs.”


Tottenham announce second Harry Kane reunion

10:20 , Marc Mayo

A busy summer is coming up for Spurs.

Not all of their pre-season plans have been confirmed yet but a trip to Japan and South Korea is on the calendar for late July/early August.

That will include a Harry Kane reunion against Bayern Munich, before facing the Germans again in north London a week later.

Ange Postecoglou explains Cristian Romero absence

10:12 , Marc Mayo

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has explained why Cristian Romero and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg have skipped the post-season friendly against Newcastle in Melbourne.

The defender and midfielder were the only two seemingly fit senior players who did not join the travelling squad.

"Cuti [Romero] is more for personal reasons," Postecoglou told reporters. "He's got to fly back to Argentina.

"Pierre had an injury going into the last game, he was kind of touch and go and after the game, pulled up sore.

"Again, because we were getting straight on a flight, it didn't make any sense when the flight is that long to bring guys like that along.

"Everyone else got through unscathed [against Sheffield United], so we'll have a full compliment from the squad we took away and some young players as well who will get some game time."

Newcastle also go strong

10:04 , Marc Mayo

Kieran Trippier makes his return to the Newcastle XI as he looks to build fitness for Euro 2024.

Elliot Anderson and Miguel Almiron also elevated from the bench.

Brandon Austin gets the nod in goal

09:58 , Marc Mayo

A strong starting line-up named by Ange Postecoglou aside from Brandon Austin coming in in goal.

The 25-year-old has been an occasional substitute this season and is out of contract in the summer too, so perhaps a chance to prove his worth - at Spurs or elsewhere.

Otherwise the likes of Heung-min Son, Micky van de Ven and James Maddison make it a relatively first-choice XI.

Ashley Phillips, Jamie Donley and Alfie Devine are among the youngsters who will try to impress off the bench.

Head-to-head record

09:17 , Marc Mayo

Spurs have lost three of their last four matches against Newcastle, including a 4-0 defeat away from home last month.

Newcastle wins: 62

Draws: 34

Tottenham wins: 74

Score prediction

09:08 , Marc Mayo

Motivation is not going to be particularly high in either camp, particularly for those expecting to be involved in Euro 2024 or the Copa America later this summer.

There should be plenty of goals in a match both sets of players could really do without.

Newcastle to win, 4-2.

Our prediction for the Spurs team

08:59 , Marc Mayo

Predicted Tottenham XI: Vicario; Royal, Van de Ven, Dragusin, Skipp; Bentancur, Sarr, Maddison; Kulusevski, Son, Johnson

Early Tottenham team news

08:50 , Marc Mayo

Spurs have confirmed their 24-man squad for the trip, with Cristian Romero and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg the fit first-team players not travelling.

Injuries to the likes of Destiny Udogie, Timo Werner, Richarlison and Yves Bissouma mean they are not involved.

Under-21s midfielder Rio Kyerematen and Under-18s midfielder Leo Black are included, but Mikey Moore is not included due to England Under-17 commitments.

How we reckon Newcastle could line up

08:41 , Marc Mayo

Predicted Newcastle XI: Pope; Trippier, Krafth, Burn, Dummett; Anderson, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Murphy, Wilson, Almiron

Early Newcastle team news

08:33 , Marc Mayo

Newcastle have not included Anthony Gordon and Fabian Schar in their travelling party due to injury, while Martin Dubravka, Loris Karius and Sean Longstaff are also not involved.

It is otherwise as expected from the Magpies, with Alexander Isak, Bruno Guimaraes and Kieran Trippier all involved, and Harrison Ashby and Garang Kuol travelling after returning from their loan spells.

08:19 , Marc Mayo

Hello and welcome to Standard Sport’s coverage of Tottenham vs Newcastle!

It’s a post-season friendly in Melbourne on the agenda today with kick-off coming at 10.45am BST at the MCG.

This has been a bit of a controversial match to organise with the Euros and Copa America not far off so both sets of players will be very keen not to ruin their summer tournament plans (or holidays) with an injury.

But hopefully we’ll still get a good game with Ange Postecoglou enjoying a homecoming in Australia.
