London - Newcastle climbed out of the Premier League bottom three with a 2-1 win away to Tottenham Hotspur while winless Burnley remained rooted in the relegation zone after a 3-1 loss at home to Everton on Sunday.

Fresh from their first victory of the season, at home to Leicester last weekend, Newcastle came from behind at White Hart Lane to enjoy back-to-back victories for the first time in nearly eight months.

Emmanuel Adebayor's 18th-minute header gave Tottenham the lead, but just seven seconds after the break, Newcastle were level when Sammy Ameobi, a half-time substitute, chased down a long ball from Jack Colbeck and beat Spurs' goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

And their comeback was complete when Ayoze Perez, making his first Premier League start, expertly headed in a cross to the back post from Remy Cabella, another half-time substitution by Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, in the 58th minute.

Spurs thought they had scored a freak equaliser when Christian Eriksen's swirling corner went in off Magpies' goalkeeper Tim Krul, but officials ruled the ball had curled out of play first.

Inside own half

Meanwhile, Burnley remain the only team in the top flight without a win after veteran Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o scored twice for Everton in a comfortable win at Turf Moor.

It looked like an all-too familiar story for newly-promoted Burnley when they fell behind in just the fourth minute after Eto'o headed in Leighton Baines's cross.

But Burnley gave the home crowd something to shout about with a 20th-minute equaliser.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku gave the ball away inside his own half to Burnley's Lukas Jutkiewicz, who slid a pass through to Danny Ings.

The Burnley striker then maintained his composure to round Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard before slotting the ball into an unguarded net.

But Lukaku went from villain to hero by restoring the visitors' lead in the 29th minute when, after his initial effort was blocked, he struck from close range to score his fourth goal in six games.

Eto'o then made it 3-1 with a superb curling shot from the edge of the box four minutes from time and only the post then denied him a hat-trick.
