What came out of of the Spurs match according to BBC Statistics is the following;
Possession NUFC 60% Spurs 40%
Total Shots NUFC 6 Spurs 12
Shots On Target NUFC 4 Spurs 6
Corners NUFC 3 Spurs 5
Goals NUFC 2 Spurs 1
Walking out of the ground I felt that Spurs deserved something and maybe on chances they might have a case but great news to see the amount of time Newcastle controlled the ball.
Alan Pardew deserves a lot of credit for his half-time chat because we definitely picked up in that second period.
It was two bits of magic though that won the match and bare statistics can’t do justice to Ba’s strike or Ben Arfa’s ambitious run into the box.
