Newcastle 0-4 Tottenham Highlights
Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice as Tottenham maintained their challenge for a top-four finish with victory over a Newcastle side short of confidence.
Adebayor put Spurs ahead when he tapped in after Tim Krul had palmed Nabil Bentaleb’s cross into his path.
Adebayor was involved in the second when Krul dived low to stop his shot only for Paulinho to follow up, before he grabbed his second with a volley.
Nacer Chadli rounded off the scoring with a brilliant 20-yard curling shot.
