Tottenham overcame Younes Kaboul's sending off to secure a 2-0 victory over Newcastle on Tuesday and provisionally dislodge Chelsea from the Premier League's top four.
Kaboul was dismissed for an attempted headbutt on Cheick Tiote in 65th minute shortly after Aaron Lennon had put Spurs in front.
Despite Newcastle enjoying a man-advantage, Gareth Bale completed a speedy counterattack in the 81st to extend Tottenham's lead.
Not only did it complete a second successive victory for Spurs in the league, where they are unbeaten in their last eight matches, but it came two days after also defeating Aston Villa with 10 men.
Spurs is two points ahead of Chelsea, but the fifth-place team is still to play Bolton on Wednesday.
