Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle: Callum Wilson's 97th minute penalty rescues point for Magpies

Newcastle United scored a 97th penalty to force a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur in an English Premier League clash on Sunday evening. 

Lucas Moura gave Spurs the lead in the 25th minute, but were meant to pay in the second half added time after they conceded a penalty. 

Spurs were the better side for long periods, but they missed a number of opportunities early on which came to haunt them in the end. 

Giovani Lo Celso was the first to test the goalie after just three minutes from a freekick, before Harry Kane's rebound from the resulting ball, but his sidefooter was expertly blocked. 

The goals

Spurs kept knocking and the answer came in the 25th minute as Moura got to the end of a Kane cross to easily tap past the goalkeeper. 

Kane and Heung-Min Son then came close to doubling the lead for Jose Mourinho's side immediately after the goal, but could not put the ball in the back of the net despite clear chances. 

Son then came closest once again on the 42nd minute after expertly controlling a neat pass on the edge of the penalty area, but he smashed his effort against the crossbar. 

Newcastle kept them at bay for the remaining part of the match, and they got a rare opportunity to score late on. 

Eric Dier appeared to handle the ball in the box, and the referee consulted the VAR before making the decision; a penalty. 

Wilson, who scored on his debut, made no mistake from the spot, and despite Hugo Lloris getting a hand on the ball, he couldn't stop it as they leveled with their first shot on target. 

Spurs will now shift their attention to the midweek Carabao Cup clash against Chelsea.
