In this meeting of two teams in the top four, Tottenham Hotspur proved no match for Newcastle United, who produced a devastating attacking performance at St James' Park.

The Magpies led 5-0 after only 21 minutes thanks to doubles from Jacob Murphy and Alexander Isak, with Joelinton scoring the other goal. 

Harry Kane pulled a goal back early in the second half, but there was no Spurs comeback. 

Callum Wilson came on to restore Newcastle's five-goal lead and claim a win that helped them secure a first top-four finish in 20 years.

The result also marked the end of Cristian Stellini's status as interim head coach of Spurs.

Having been issued with a refund by the players after the 6-1 defeat at Newcastle United in their previous away trip, Tottenham Hotspur supporters would have been forgiven to start expecting more money coming their way after Liverpool roared into a 3-0 lead within 15 minutes at Anfield.

Curtis Jones opened the scoring in the third minute from Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross, before Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah, converting a penalty after missing his previous two, put Liverpool in the driving seat against their top-six rivals.

Harry Kane pulled a goal back before half-time to give Spurs a glimmer of hope. And the comeback seemed within reach when with just under 15 minutes remaining, Son Heung-min struck to set up a grandstand finish.

Richarlison levelled in the third minute of stoppage time with his first Premier League goal for Spurs, but the former Everton striker's wild celebrations were cut short when, straight from the kick-off, Diogo Jota capitalised on Lucas Moura's poor back-pass to finish past Fraser Forster and send Anfield into raptures.

The victory moved Liverpool above Spurs into fifth, and manager Jurgen Klopp's joy at the winner was tempered by a hamstring injury sprinting along the touchline in celebration.
