Comments:

League position: 14th This was Newcastle United's 400th home game in the Premier League. With this loss, Newcastle United equalled their worst Premier League losing sequence of six games between March and April in 2014. They have gained just nine points from a possible 42 in 2015 (won two, drawn three and lost nine).

Comments:

League position: 6th With his late strike, Harry Kane became the first Tottenham Hotspur player to score 30 goals in a season in all competitions since Gary Lineker in the 1991-92 season. It was his 20th Premier League goal of the 2014-15 campaign. He became only the third player aged 21 or younger to reach 20 goals in a Premier League season after Liverpool's Robbie Fowler (25 in 1994-95 and 28 in 1995-96) and Chris Sutton of Blackburn Rovers (25 in 1993-94). Harry is the fourth Spur to hit the Premier League 20-goal mark after Jurgen Klinsmann, Teddy Sheringham and Gareth Bale.
