Tottenham Hotspur 2 Newcastle United 0

Jonas Gutierrez

Newcastle United suffered their second defeat in two days as ten-man Tottenham Hotspur proved too hot to handle for the Magpies at White Hart Lane.

Spurs took the lead in the second-half when Younes Kaboul played in Aaron Lennon down the right. The England winger went past recalled defender James Perch before hitting an angled drive that deflected off Perch and past Tim Krul.

Provider Kaboul then turned from hero to villain after a strong, but clean, challenge from United's Ivorian midfielder Cheik Tioté.

The Spurs man reacted to the tackle and appeared to lean into Tioté with his head, which earned him a red card from referee Anthony Taylor.

But despite their numerical advantage, Newcastle couldn't find a way past Tottenham and the home side doubled their lead with nine minutes remaining with a goal similar to the first.

Luka Modric fed Gareth Bale on the left and the young Welshman surged into the box, before turning Steven Taylor inside out and firing a low shot beyond Krul's dive and into the far corner.

A determined Newcastle side had done well to curb Tottenham's attacking instincts for much of the game ahead of Lennon's 57th minute opener and had chances of their own through a couple of Andy Carroll headers and a late Peter Lovenkrands effort.

But the result saw United drop into the bottom half of the Premier League table in their final fixture of 2010, as Spurs kept their first clean-sheet since the opening day of the season.
