Four minutes later, Steven Bergwijn’s cross met Harry Kane who turned things around for Jose Mourinho’s side.
He made it three at the end of the regular 90 minutes when he netted a Lamela’s shot making it his 201st goal of the club.
Newcastle were impressive for the night recording more shots than the visitors even when the club is locked in a takeover by Saudi Arabians.
The win sends Spurs to seventh position with 55 points and four behind the top four spot currently occupied by Leicester.
