Newcastle United vs. Tottenham: 5 Lessons Learned from Sunday's 2-2 Draw

Tottenham Hotspur's winning ways came to an end this Sunday, as Newcastle United put up a valiant fight to steal a point at home.

Jermaine Defoe's goal looked to be enough to take all three points, but Shola Ameobi's lighting bolt strike across goal allowed Newcastle to equalize in the 86th minute and take away a point from the game.

The game was actually fairly evenly split with no team really dominating. In fact, by the end of the game, some could argue that Newcastle deserved to win, having had 55% of the possession, to Tottenham's 45%.

Still, Spurs fans will feel aggrieved that their winning streak did not continue in a game that many Spurs fans believed was very winnable. 

Let's take a look at some of the lessons Redknapp and Co. should learn from and incorporate into next week's game plan.
