Newcastle 1-3 Tottenham LIVE SCORE: Son puts Spurs two ahead as game restarts after suspension due to medical emergency

NEWCASTLE'S first match under Saudi ownership is back underway after being suspended due to a medical emergency in the stands.

And Son Heung-min has now doubled the visitors' lead on Tyneside.

The Saudis' time in charge of Newcastle could hardly have started better as Callum Wilson headed the Toon in front after just two minutes.

But it didn't last as Spurs showed what they're made of 15 minutes later when Tanguy Ndombele fired a powerful strike into the top corner to level.

Then on 22 minutes, Harry Kane netted a deft chip which VAR rules was onside to put Nuno's men ahead.

And once the players returned to the pitch, Kane squared to Son to double the North Londoners' advantage.

    46. The home side get the action back underway at St James' Park, two goals behind and in the need of something spectacular if they are to come back to claim any points.

    They certainly have options in attack, the problem is that their defence is the worst in the Premier League.

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    THE ACTION RESTARTS!

    Five shots on target and four goals. Perhaps accurate attempts are the secret to success.

    HT: NEWCASTLE 1-3 SPURS

    It seems a long time ago now that Callum Wilson gave Newcastle a dream start. The striker's header, two minutes into his return, took the roof off St James' Park on their day of celebration. However, goals from Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son have Spurs firmly in the ascendency at the end of a first half most notable for a worrying incident involving a home supporter. As the clock approached 45 minutes, a fan in the East Stand was taken ill and required CPR from bystanders and medics. Fortunately, that person is now said to be stable in hospital.

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    THE FIRST HALF COMES TO AN END!

    45+9. The first half ends with tempers flared after Newcastle players – and referee Andre Marriner – refused to stop play after Emerson Royal had gone down injured. Saint-Maximin and Hojbjerg are particularly vocal in their views.

    45+6. Saint-Maximin tries to pull one back by plundering his way through. The Frenchman finds his route blocked so goes for a long ranger but it's well off target.

    45+3. Amid an understandably sombre atmosphere, Tottenham bag their third of the afternoon.

    It's a superbly-worked goal featuring all of the visitors' attacking players. Tanguy Ndombele starts the move before Lucas Moura skips away from his marker and pokes a pass through for Harry Kane.

    Confidence renewed, Kane races on to the ball, and then picks out Heung-min Son with a simple cross to the far post that the South Korean fires in.

    All too easy.

    THE TEAMS RETURN

    The players are back out and will undergo a three-minute warm-up before commencing with the first half.

    Meanwhile, the supporter involved has been removed from the stand on a stretcher and is on their way to the nearby hospital. The promising news filtering through is that they have been stabilised and we'll keep our fingers crossed for a speedy recovery.

    UPDATE

    A stadium announcement has just confirmed that the players will return to the field of play shortly, and will complete the first half after a short warm-up.

    45+2. Andre Marriner goes across to the far side where the unfortunate incident has occurred, and enters discussion with a steward and then a policeman.

    The referee then decides to take both teams off the field as play is suspended.

    While we don't know the details of the situation unfolding and send our best wishes to those involved, credit must go to the reaction of the players in alerting the authorities. Sergio Reguilon and Eric Dier particularly were quick and thoughtful in their actions.

    40. As Spurs were preparing to take a throw-in on the far side, both sets of players started to frantically call for assistance from the dugouts.

    It soon becomes clear that there is a emergency in the East Stand with a supporter requiring medical assistance.

    39. Off the crossbar! Spurs almost bag a third as Lucas Moura meets Son's corner with a header that thumps against the woodwork.

    38. Tanguy Ndombele has been absolutely brilliant since being moved into his more advanced midfield role.

    Dominant against Aston Villa, the Frenchman is at it again today. He dances through a non-existent Newcastle backline and wins his side another corner.

    35. A slight change in shape for Newcastle with Joe Willock drifting out to the left to allow Joelinton the opportunity to roam centrally.

    The Newcastle midfielder is cautioned for tripping Lucas Moura.

    31. Nearly! The Newcastle front three combine again as Joelinton slides Wilson through on goal.

    Rather than taking the opportunity on himself, the striker instead looks for a pass to Saint-Maximin at the far post, a decision that is only thwarted by some excellent defending from Reguilon.

    29. Newcastle need to summon the energy of the first ten minutes, and need the help of the crowd. This is where being the self-proclaimed best fans in the world really earns its money.
