Tottenham Hotspur had the lead at halftime. They do not have that lead any longer, thanks to Demba Ba. Jonas Gutierrez managed to run past faux-winger Luka Modric to free up space for an enticing cross that managed to evade the entirety of the Spurs defence and set up perfectly for summer signing Ba, who steered a volley into Brad Freidel - it would have been a fine save had the American goalkeeper not ended up in the back of his own net, still clutching the ball.
So it's 1-1 at St. James' Park, and Tottenham have replied by fashioning a couple of chances, most notable when Modric skipped away from the defence and teed up Rafael van der Vaart for a first time shot, which the Dutch midfielder wasted by firing straight at compatriot Tim Krul. However, they've also suffered another blow - right back Kyle Walker, who went in hard for a challenge near the Newcastle box and promptly went down in a head looks like he'll be forced off the pitch. Will Danny Rose be his replacement?
