Steve Bruce says Newcastle United players responded to the recent criticism
Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has said that the Magpies players responded to the recent criticism as they clinched a shock 1-0 triumph over Tottenham Hotspur on the road. The Magpies barely provided a goalscoring threat in the opening two league games of the season and they were criticised for the performance at Norwich City, where they could have easily conceded more than three goals.
As such, the Magpies were given barely any chance of coming up with a positive result at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium but they managed to surprise the fans and pundits alike by coming out with a 1-0 win in the end. The Magpies only commanded 20 percent of the overall possession but they managed to find the net through summer signing Joelinton before restricting any clear-cut scoring chances for Spurs.
