Newcastle 0-4 Spurs - Tim's verdict
12 February 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Tim Sherwood pinpointed our fast start as key to a fantastic victory at St James' Park on Wednesday night.
Paulinho added to his away goal tally - that’s four in the Premier League, six in all competitions - with the second goal on 53 minutes to put us in control at 2-0.
“It was a great performance,” said Tim. “We’ve been critical in recent weeks about the way we’ve started games but not this time.
“We came out firing, as soon as the whistle went, we were off.
“We really set the right tone. We knew the crowd would be important here, they can be the 12th man but we got on the front foot, pressured them into giving us the ball back and when we had it, kept it and that’s very frustrating for any crowd, especially at home.
“Ade’s done brilliantly again, they all have. It’s hard to single anyone out after a win like that. They were excellent.”
