Tidy finish from growing Tottenham star

Nacer Chadli put Tottenham Hotspur in front against Newcastle United at St James Park in today’s Premier League encounter. Chadli’s goal was enough to ensure his side led The Magies 1-0 at half-time.

The Belgian picked the ball up a long way from goal before attempting to run at the Newcastle defence. Chadli checked one way before switching the ball back onto his left and sending past Tim Krul with a bending shot from all of 30 yards.

Here are some of the best reactions to Chadli’s opener:

However, Spurs’ joy was not too long lived as Newcastle quickly pulled a goal back after the break via Jack Colback. John Carver would have been more confident, especially considering the record his side hold against Tottenham, having lost just one of their last eight PL home games against Spurs (W5 D2 L1).

But Christian Eriksen soon spoiled his celebrations by putting Spurs back in front with another goal from a free-kick.
