Tottenham lucky in Newcastle win, says Vertonghen

Premier League Mauricio Pochettino Faces Acid Test After Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs earn the three points in their aqua jerseys to start the season.

Newcastle were level within three minutes when Sanchez and Vertonghen were caught ball-watching as Matt Ritchie sent over an inviting centre from the right which Joselu headed into the bottom corner of the net past an exposed Hugo Lloris.

But for a Moussa Sissoko chance in the 56th minute, blocked by a superb reflex save by Dubravka, Mauricio Pochettino's side struggled to create chances in the second half.

Newcastle will hope that their new striker can make a major impact this season, with the majority calling for Muto to start the next game - here are the best tweets.

Who would have thought that the Premier League would be so conscious about the benefits of recycling?

Goals from Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli handed Spurs an opening day win at St Jame's Park. It sounds insane but we defended well with the ball.

Israel Kills Two Palestinians, Wounds Hundreds at Gaza Protest
The military said Palestinians hurled "explosive devices and firebombs" and in one instance a grenade at Israeli soldiers Friday. A wounded Palestinian girl is brought into al-Shifa hospital on August 9, 2018, following an Israeli airstrike on Gaza City.

Spurs regained their lead in a topsy-turvy opening, as Aurier's unsafe cross from deep on the right was nodded back across goal and into the corner by Alli, who scored in the 2-0 win at St James' Park on the opening day of last season.

"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together".

Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs were rarely at their fluent best - fatigue possibly a factor for the five World Cup semi-finalists in his starting XI - and Mohamed Diame and new signing Salomon Rondon were denied by the post and crossbar as Newcastle chased a second equaliser in vain.

An outside shout for the World Cup, Jonjo Shelvey was again among Newcastle's brightest players, while Jamaal Lascelles was solid yet not outstanding.

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.

In a contest where most of the football was played in the final third at both ends, it was Alli's defensive work that impressed, as well as his clever finish.
