Spurs begin season with entertaining win at Newcastle

  • Spurs became the first ever Premier League club not to make a summer signing since the window began in 2003

After such little downtime for so many key players, in addition to the lack of summer arrivals, Tottenham could face long-term fatigue later in the campaign, but Alli added: "It's a joy to be back".

Tottenham Hotspur's Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen (3R) celebrates scoring the opening goal during the English Premier League football match between Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur at St James' Park in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, north east England on August 11, 2018.

Kane has now played nearly 1,000 minutes of Premier League football in August, leading many to question why anyone would select Kane before September rolls around.

The visitors took an eighth-minute lead when Christian Eriksen's corner was headed toward goal by Davinson Sanchez, allowing Vertonghen head the ball over the line before Martin Dubravka in the Newcastle goal was able to claw the ball back. But he can't score three goals in every game'.

But what else did we learn from a gripping contest?

Spurs made a change with 22 minutes left as Mousa Dembele was introduced for Moura and Heung-min Son then replaced Alli with 81 on the clock.

Spurs travel to Newcastle United on Saturday lunchtime looking to get their season off to a strong start after the Lilywhites ended up in third place in the table last term under Mauricio Pochettino.

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

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino was delighted with the way his returning World Cup stars responded to the challenge of launching the season with a victory after minimal preparation with Vertonghen, Hugo Lloris, Alli and Harry Kane all starting the game.

"The staff and the players need to stay together and the most important thing is the fans in a hard time because we are going to move to a new stadium".

Spurs continued to dominate possession and regained their lead with just 18 minutes played when full-back Serge Aurier drove a cross to the far post for the unmarked Alli to power a header past Dubravka.

"We deserved at least a draw, we were fighting until the end and had chances in the second half", the Spaniard said.
