Pochettino defends Tottenham Hotspur's lack of summer signings

Boateng

Newcastle United were left without anything to show for a positive opening day performance against Tottenham. Tottenham had some good looks in this match and could have extended their lead, but Newcastle hit the post twice and deserved a point instead of a loss.

Spurs took an early lead as Vertonghen nodded home at the back post, with the goal awarded via goal-line technology. Naturally they exhausted as the game went on but the job was nearly done and Pochettino's decision had already been justified.

Spurs started last season off with a 2-0 win here on Tyneside but their away form from there on in was more mixed than might be expected. The likes of Vertonghen, Hugo Lloris and Alli only returned to training on Monday, prompting questions if they would be fit enough to perform at their highest levels.

The "Neptune Green" colour, which Harry Kane & Co. will be sporting a few times this term, is inspired by "the original Charrington's Brewery logo, the company that originally owned part of the land where the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been built", according to a news release.

"I am happy in the way the players arrived after the holidays, and Dele was one of them". The Spurs defender bundles it over the line, despite Newcastle's desperate effort to clear. Ritchie is given all the time in the world to deliver a cross, his devilish delivery is a dream for Joselu who glances the header into the top corner, leaving Lloris helpless.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has insisted that his side "have got to improve" following their 2-1 victory over Newcastle United. Newcastle's defence is carved open once more. He does everything right but is missing that bit of luck needed to score.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has defended Harry Kane by saying his star striker can not score a hat-trick every week after a sluggish display against Newcastle on Saturday.

Labour MP and Spurs fan David Lammy, a champion of the anti-Brexit campaign group Best for Britain, said that Premier League clubs were "being forced to pay a colossal Brexit tax in this transfer window thanks to the pound's slump".

The novelty of Kane's run without a goal in the Premier League season's opening month stretching to 14 matches will not concern Pochettino greatly. Their best fell to new loan signing Salomon Rondon but his shot deflected onto the crossbar when he was played through.
