Tottenham Hotspur clinched their first Premier League victory since October in a commanding 4-1 win over a weary Newcastle United on Sunday. 

Brazilian forward Richarlison shone, netting two goals and showcasing a return to form.

Previously plagued by leading but failing to secure wins, Tottenham took the lead through Destiny Udogie’s inaugural club goal, capitalizing on captain Son Heung-min’s assist after 26 minutes, setting the tone for their dominance.

Richarlison’s Impactful Return:

Richarlison, ably assisted by the exceptional Son, added to Tottenham’s lead before halftime, scoring both goals to make it 2-0. 

He struck again in the 60th minute, amplifying Tottenham’s dominance against a possibly preoccupied Newcastle gearing up for a crucial Champions League clash with Milan.

Son’s relentless performance culminated in an 85th-minute penalty conversion after a foul by keeper Martin Dubravka, further solidifying Tottenham’s commanding lead.

Late Newcastle Response:

Despite Joelinton’s late goal for Newcastle, it was not enough to detract from Tottenham’s resounding victory, positioning them fifth in the league with 30 points from 16 games. 

In comparison, Liverpool leads with 37 points, shaping a captivating title race.
