Spurs and Villa served up an error-filled but entertaining match with an exciting conclusion that saw Son net the team's latest winner in a Premier League match since over a decade:
Toby Alderweireld kicked things off with an own-goal but made up for his mistake by bagging the equaliser. Compatriot Bjorn Engels, who also made a crucial mistake at the back, got on the scoresheet himself, tying things up after Son's first goal.
The match seemed destined to end in a tie until Villa forgot to defend with numbers in the final minutes and were punished on the counter. Bleacher Report's Sam Tighe couldn't believe it:
Local rivals Arsenal struggled in the first half against the Magpies but turned things on after the break, scoring four goals.
The best chance fell to Newcastle in the first half, and Goal's Charles Watts didn't like what he saw from the Gunners:
But goals from Pierre-Emerick Aumameyang and Pepe just minutes apart broke Newcastle's resolve, and the Gunners were never troubled the rest of the way. They would add two more goals in the final minutes through Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette.
The Athletic's James McNicholas was impressed with the second-half improvements:
The four goals pushed Arsenal's goal difference into the positive and closed the gap to Manchester United to a single point. The Red Devils still have a match in hand, however.
