Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham: Dele Alli scores victor for visitors

Spurs got their season off to a flying start early on, as Davinson Sanchez flicked on a Christian Eriksen corner into the path of Vertonghen, who diverted the ball just nine millimetres over the line following a Goal-line Decision System review.

The only surprise was that, after Alli's 18th-minute victor, there was no further score with both goalkeepers, Martin Dubravka and Hugo Lloris, forced to make a string of impressive saves.

Kenedy was guilty of squandering arguably Newcastle's best chance of drawing level midway through the second half. With all of the circumstances, we prepared for the game with a lot of players that only started training on Monday. "I'm not a big fan of technology in football, but now I am!" "We need to be clever and learn and it's a massive challenge to try to work all together again in just a few days".

With seven new quality players now on board, Newcastle's current players have to prove that they are worthy of maintaining their roles as starters or primary substitutes.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that he will need to assess his players who came back late from duty at the World Cup, to decide whether they will be able to feature in the game against Newcastle United. The venue of the match is at St James' Park. "But what happens with Harry is that he can not score three goals in every game", Pochettino added.

Their glee didn't last long, however, with Alli arriving at the back post to head in Aurier's deep cross for what proved to be the victor.

The guys who played in the World Cup and in the semi-finals, they looked after their bodies well.

This was a exhausted performance from the World Cup Golden Boot victor.

"It was a game that from the beginning of the season is always hard - teams with a lot of energy", the Argentine explained.

"Newcastle were a very good opponent. I think the performance, in all the circumstances, we were fantastic", Pochettino told Sky Sports. "We reacted well and never gave up".

The home side gradually settled into the game after a whirlwind opening half-hour, but with Diame in particular guilty of repeatedly squandering the ball, they struggled to build momentum and Sanchez might have deepened their woes with a glancing 38th-minute header which flew across the face of goal.
