Spurs will look to make it four wins on the bounce in their third game of the new Premier League season at home to Newcastle this afternoon.
Jose Mourinho‘s side come off a confidence-boosting 5-2 hammering of Southampton last week, which preceded a mid-week Europa League win in North Macedonia.
Spurs come up against a Newcastle side also with one win and a loss in their opening two Premier League games, buoyed by a 7-0 Carabao Cup third-round win over Morecambe.
With kick-off at 2pm BST, follow the action at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium!
It wasn’t Kane or Sacramento, but goalkeeping coach Nuno Santos, who gestured towards the officials.
Newcastle fans would have been delighted to get that draw, but they didn’t have a single shot on target before Wilson’s penalty. Many would probably concede it wasn’t a clear penalty.
It’s not the first decision this weekend to stir up controversy and it won’t be the last one. At this point, it’s difficult to see who benefits from such harsh handball decisions.
It does appear that Harry Kane has been sent off by the referee Peter Bankes after the final whistle for his protests. But according to Sky Sports, the card was shown to assistant Joao Sacramento instead.
A dismal end to this game gets even worse for Tottenham.
We’ll get confirmation on what happened shortly.
Well, the handball decisions keep creating controversy and Newcastle have stolen a point in the most dramatic circumstances.
Spurs will know they missed a host of chances but that decision has robbed them of two valuable points.
GOAL! Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle | Callum Wilson (pen) 90+7′
Wilson squeezes it underneath Lloris!
Under the pressure, it’s a good penalty from Wilson but Lloris looks annoyed that doesn’t keep it out.
Mourinho turns away and walks down the tunnel. He is livid – and who can blame him.
PENALTY TO NEWCASTLE!
This could be a complicated one. Newcastle appeal for handball and this one has much more substance to it.
Under the new rules, it does appear that Carroll’s header hits Dier’s hand, but he has absolutely no idea about it. It would be so harsh, but the rules are there.
But before they can rule on the handball, the officials are looking for offside. No problems there – and the referee goes over to the monitor to check for handball now.
IT’S GIVEN! Unbelievable drama!
90+1 mins: Hayden goes in the book for a foul late on, presumably to try and get a suspected handball looked at by VAR.
90 mins: There will be FIVE minutes to be played.
Still time for another goal and some late drama.
My oh my.
After all of their chances on goal, Spurs get away with a messy situation at the back as Davies thumps a clearance against Hojbjerg and it deflects wide.
A heart-in-mouth moment for Mourinho’s side there.
88 mins: Spurs see their appeals for handball fall on deaf ears but Kane plays on, trying to lift the ball over Darlow and again sees him in his way.
Quite a contrast from the first half, when they were peppering the Newcastle goal like a well-cooked steak.
Yellow card for Lewis – and a dangerous Lamela delivery to come. But he goes for goal instead and Darlow pushes it over for a corner.
80 mins: Erik Lamela is on and that’s all of Tottenham’s substitutions now, with the goalscorer Lucas Moura making way.
Spurs are yet to find that second goal and there will be some nerves as Newcastle launch the ball into their penalty area.
As for Newcastle, it’s Andy Carroll on for Almiron. Newcastle are now playing with three big strikers up top – and you can expect a direct approach from them now.
“As this game enters the final stages, Spurs remain well on top but still in search of a second goal.
“Some of the urgency has gone out of the occasion but Newcastle still have Carroll, among others, in reserve and it could yet be a nervy finale if the host don’t put this to bed soon.”
Just goes to show that if you impress in cup games, you will get chances in bigger competitions.
68 mins: Jamall Lewis, who suffered a pretty nasty eye injury in the last game against Brighton, is on to replace Ritchie.
He looks in some pain, clutching his shoulder as he receives treatment on the pitch. This might be the end of his afternoon.
What more do Spurs have to do? This time it’s Lo Celso who tries his luck on his unfavoured right foot and Darlow pushes it out to Kane, who clips the cross to the far post but it’s just beyond Lucas.

Prediction: Tottenham 2-0 Newcastle
Tottenham go into this game as undoubted favourites, having won five of their last six games against the Magpies.
Though in free-scoring form against Southampton, Tottenham are yet to claim a clean sheet this season, something Mourinho will be keen to correct on Sunday.
Newcastle looked less than convincing in their 3-0 home defeat to Brighton last weekend, and I can’t see past a home win here.
Head to head (h2h) history and results
Tottenham and Newcastle are certainly no strangers having met a whopping 162 times in their history.
It’s the home side who enter the fixture with the better record, having won on 71 occasions, as opposed to Newcastle’s 59 wins, alongside 32 draws.
It was Newcastle who emerged as victors at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last season, however, thanks to a rare Joelinton goal.
