On Thursday, Tottenham came from behind to hold Manchester United to a 2-2 draw while Newcastle crushed Everton 4-1 to move closer to the Champions League.
Sunday's 6-1 thrashing of Spurs by Newcastle ended Cristian Stellini's four-game stint as temporary manager.
As United roared into a 2-0 lead before halftime in caretaker Ryan Mason's first game in command, things threatened to become much worse.
After just seven minutes, Jadon Sancho scored the game's first goal. Seven minutes later, Marcus Rashford scored his 29th goal of the season after racing past Eric Dier.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, said, “I don't think we were that good across the 90 minutes.” “We needed to score another goal after the break.”
In light of the Red Devils' interest in Tottenham's all-time leading scorer, Harry Kane, United supporters mocked the home crowd with the song, “Harry Kane, we'll see you in June.”
However, Tottenham eventually put up a fight to increase their prospects of making it to Europe the next season.
With a thunderous goal, Pedro Porro cut the deficit before Kane passed for Son Heung-min to tie the score 11 minutes from time.
Mason added, “I felt we were terrific in the second half and the courage we showed after falling two goals behind last Sunday.
“I hope the spectators can see that today we worked as a team and ran for one another. We could have scored a lot more goals in the second half.
Spurs gain a point to move back up to fifth position, but they are still six points behind United, who are in fourth place and have two games remaining.
As a result of Callum Wilson's two goals at Goodison Park, Newcastle increased their lead over the pack vying for a top-four finish and a spot in the Champions League the following season to eight points.
Before the interval, Eddie Howe's team had trouble getting into a groove, but Wilson's savage finish gave them the lead after Jordan Pickford parried Joelinton's shot.
'EARN THE RIGHT'
After Joelinton's goal, Wilson's top corner goal, and Jacob Murphy's excellent run, Newcastle went on the offensive in the closing 20 minutes.
Howe remarked, “In the second half, you saw us at our absolute best and extremely clinical in front of goal.
“There was confidence, and it showed in the second half. To get there, we had to earn the right.
Everton, who are still firmly entrenched in the relegation zone, had little solace from Dwight McNeil's sneaky corner.
After losing 1-0 to Bournemouth at home, the Toffees are currently six points outside of safety with just Southampton keeping them off the bottom of the league.
The Cherries moved up to 14th place and seven points above the relegation zone after Marcus Tavernier's lone goal against St. Mary's.
Che Adams' shot in the 89th minute that Southampton believed they had salvaged an equalizer was disallowed for offside after a VAR review, moving the Saints closer to the Championship for the next season.
Ruben Selles, Southampton's manager, said, “I don't think we were good enough.” We weren't in the game up until we let up the goal.
