Wilson’s penalty goal led to a draw with Tottenham 

In a 1-1 draw against a dominant Tottenham side, in the 96th-minute Callum Wilson hit a dramatic penalty to take a draw.

When Giovani Lo Celso’s free-kick drew a fine diving save from Karl Darlow, who responded quickly to block Harry Kane’s close-range rebound shot, Spurs almost took the lead within four minutes.

Minutes later and Darlow was at it again, parrying from near range a Kane header as the hosts hit with all the possession on the pressure.

And when Kane turned provider to take out Lucas Moura for a tap-in at the far post, Newcastle were eventually separated. Though Son Heung-Min struck the post and the bar, Eric Dier almost doubled their lead, but somehow the Magpies made it down to only one goal at the interval.

Erik Lamela forced another fine saving from the excellent Darlow, while Kane also attempted a second down the ’keeper’s throat with a beautifully struck volley.

Three points never looked in any doubt as Newcastle failed to secure a 90-minute shot on goal for the second consecutive week, although Spurs produced even fewer opportunities than in the first half and struggled to double their lead.

But VAR and handball controversy erupted once again this season when Newcastle received a 95th-minute penalty after Dier was considered to have handled.

Wilson made no mistake from the spot, slotting past Hugo Lloris for an unexpected draw.
