Tottenham have been denied a place in the Premier League’s top four by a player on loan from fierce rivals Arsenal as Joe Willock’s late goal earned Newcastle a lifeline with a 2-2 draw.

After Joelinton’s opener for the home side on Sunday, Harry Kane’s double looked to have handed Spurs a sixth win at St James’ Park in seven visits when he struck twice inside four first-half minutes with his 28th and 29th goals of the season.

His 19 league goals also put the England captain ahead of Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah as he leads the race to be England’s the league’s top scorer in 2020-21.

But Steve Bruce’s beleaguered side turned in a gritty display which was rewarded when, seconds after Kane had hit the post, the Arsenal loanee Willock smashed home an 85th-minute equaliser.

Willock chose the perfect moment to score his first goal since his debut when he fired home off the underside of the crossbar after Hugo Lloris had palmed away Miguel Almiron’s point-blank header.

It earned them a point which could prove crucial in the fight for top-flight survival.

Earlier on Sunday, Danny Ings returned with a bang as Southampton took a major step towards Premier League survival by overturning a two-goal deficit to snatch a 3-2 win from a frantic encounter with Burnley.

Striker Ings, back after a month-long absence due to a leg injury, was involved in all three Saints goals to inspire the hosts to a first home league success in three months.

Nathan Redmond volleyed home the second-half winner after Ings had sparked the dramatic turnaround by setting up Stuart Armstrong’s goal and then equalised himself before the break with a fine individual effort.

Sean Dyche’s Clarets were seemingly in complete control with just half an hour gone at St Mary’s courtesy of Chris Wood’s penalty and a powerful finish from Matej Vydra.

Southampton’s superb fightback earned them a first top-flight success on home soil since upsetting champions Liverpool on January 4 to provide welcome relief for manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Aside from reaching an FA Cup semi-final, Hasenhuttl’s men have endured a torrid 2021, suffering 10 defeats from 12 league outings prior to kick-off.

But the victory moves them above Wolves and into 13th place, three points clear of the Clarets.
