There was a festival atmosphere ahead of kick-off as the Newcastle fans welcomed their new owners into the directors’ box. It began well on the field too as Callum Wilson nodded home inside two minutes to send the stands into raptures.
However, things soon unravelled as Tottenham quickly took the lead. Tanguy Ndombele curled home a wonderful equaliser, before Kane opened his Premier League account for the season. His strike had initially been ruled out for offside, but a VAR review overturned the decision and the goal stood.
But an incident in the stands towards the end of the first half saw play suspended for 24 minutes. A Newcastle supporter needed urgent medical attention and the teams returned to the dressing room as they received treatment, before being stabilised and taken to hospital.
