Back in Tyne: Five memorable wins at Tottenham Hotspur

Written by Luke Vinton

Ahead of Newcastle United's Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday (kick-off 4.30pm BST), we take a look at some of the Magpies' most memorable wins over Spurs in the capital...

Pérez's stoppage-time winner (2015)

United secured an important 2-1 victory as the Magpies came from behind to stun Spurs in the dying stages. Following Eric Dier's first half header, the introduction of forwards Aleksandar Mitrović and Ayoze Pérez proved crucial as both substitutes got their name on the scoresheet.

After replacing Papiss Cissé, Mitrović took just two minutes to find United's equaliser after coming on before the Serbian turned provider for Pérez, flicking a cross into the path of the Spaniard who fired home in the 93rd minute to seal a dramatic third consecutive win at White Hart Lane.      

Krul breaks Premier League record (2013)

Loic Remy's 13th minute strike proved to be the difference in a game largely remembered for the goalkeeping heroics of Tim Krul.

After Remy rounded Brad Friedel to net his seventh goal in seven appearances, the Dutch shot-stopper made 14 saves - the most by any goalkeeper in Premier League history at the time - to produce one of the finest individual performances of the 2013/4 season and record a tremendous clean sheet.

Martins' missile (2007)

United came from behind twice as the Magpies claimed a 3-2 victory courtesy of Oba Martins' thunderbolt. 

Spurs took a 14th minute lead through Jermain Defoe before defender Paul Huntington replied two minutes later and, despite Dimitar Berbatov regaining Tottenham's lead, it took 94 seconds for the Magpies to turn the game on its head.

The Nigerian forward levelled the scoreline after unleashing an astonishing strike, clocked at 84mph, which flew into the top corner.

Nicky Butt, who had been suffering from flu that week, delivering a sickening blow to stun Spurs, getting on the end of Martin's delightful through ball before finding the net from a tight angle. 

One nil down, four one up! (2008)

After Nicky Butt cancelled out Darren Bent's opener on the stroke of half-time, United turned on the style with a dominant second half display, recording an impressive 4-1 win in the capital.

Geremi's free kick gave the Magpies the lead before goals from Michael Owen and Obafemi Martins wrapped it up for Kevin Keegan's men, recording back-to-back victories for the first time since December.

Sir Les' brace seals win for Entertainers (1996)

Les Ferdinand enjoyed a week to remember with three goals in two matches, grabbing both goals in the Magpies' 2-1 victory over Tottenham.

The prolific forward, who had previously netted the winner in a 2-1 Tyne-Wear derby triumph at rivals Sunderland, equalised after Rory Allen broke the deadlock for the home side. 

With United's team including then-record signing Alan Shearer, Peter Beardsley and David Ginola - to name a few - Newcastle went on a run of seven straight Premier League victories, which included the memorable 5-0 win over Manchester United at St. James' Park.
