Newcastle defender Fabian Schär takes to Twitter to express delight after Tottenham victory

Newcastle United stunned Tottenham Hotspur away from home against all odds yesterday to pick up their first points of the new Premier League campaign.

Brazilian striker Joelinton bagged the only goal of the game and it was enough to earn Steve Bruce’s side much-needed victory.

Newcastle had to do a lot of defending, though, and they were resilient with it, putting in an impressive shift.

Tottenham had 80% ball possession, but they couldn’t break down the visitors’ solid backline despite their best efforts.

Despite registering 17 shots, only two of Spurs’ attempts found the target, and the Magpies proved more clinical in front of goal, hitting the target thrice from eight attempts.
