Newcastle defeated Tottenham to increase their chances of playing in Europe the next season, and Alexander Isak’s prolific goal-scoring streak at St James’ Park continued.

For the sixth straight game, Isak scored on home soil, putting up two stunning finishes in each half.

Timo Werner had two opportunities for Spurs, but his finishing let him down. Anthony Gordan and Fabian Schar were both on target for the Magpies.

With their decisive win, Newcastle moved up to sixth place in the standings, one spot ahead of Manchester United, who take on Bournemouth on Saturday at 17:30 BST.

Tottenham fell to fifth place, now trailing Aston Villa in goal differential.

Strikers who can score goals have always had a special place in the hearts of Newcastle’s supporters, from Alan Shearer and Andrew Cole to Malcolm Macdonald and Jackie Milburn.

Despite having the number 14 printed on his shirt, Isak, a striker from Sweden, shares the same bloodline as the names usually linked to the legendary number nine.

Only Shearer (15) and Cole (eight) have scored in more consecutive Premier League games than Isak, which highlights the reason he will become a legend on Tyneside very fast.

Newcastle stunned the visitors in the spring sunshine, and his double in this lopsided win over Spurs highlighted his finishing ability.

Isak got the ball from Gordon, cut inside, and unleashed a powerful low shot into the corner of the net to open the score.

Gordon added another as he pounced on Pedro Porro’s erroneous clearing, and Isak effectively secured the points following the half.

After breaking through on goal and opening out his body to guide the ball past Tottenham custodian Guglielmo Vicario, the 24-year-old initially appeared to be offside.

However, Isak had perfectly timed his run, starting from within his own half, before delivering a calm finish.

Isak missed a hat-trick, and Schar scored a fourth with a header from a corner from Gordon, but when the final whistle blew, his name was clearly in the mouths of the fans leaving the Gallowgate End.
