No signings? No problem for Spurs as Alli sinks Newcastle

Tottenham news Hugo Lloris

It was three headed goals in 18 minutes when Serge Aurier picked out Alli at the far post from deep on the right flank.

Spurs kick off their Premier League season with a visit to Newcastle on Saturday.

Spurs took an early lead as Vertonghen nodded home at the back post, with the goal awarded via goal-line technology.

"I told them yesterday, for me, it's like we start from zero".

It means Tottenham head in to the new campaign with exactly the same squad that finished third last season so Pochettino will be hoping that continuity will prove vital over the coming months.

"We have a very good squad, we have very good players and it is not easy to add players that improve that", Pochettino said.

Fabian Schar, Ki Sung-yueng, Yoshinori Muto and Salomon Rondon have all been left on the substitutes' bench for the fixture in the North-East.

England's Alastair Cook Backs Adil Rashid to Handle Pressure of India Test
India may be the world s top-ranked Test side but they still face accusations they are lions at home and lambs overseas . If India wins 5-0, then they will rise to 129 points and England will drop to sixth place on 94 points.

Newcastle, whose lack of striking options was one of the themes of their 2017-18, responded nearly immediately through Joselu, who found space between the Tottenham center-backs to head Matt Ritchie's excellent cross past Hugo Lloris.

The Denmark global delivered the resulting corner for defender Davinson Sanchez to attack.

Kenedy then found himself in acres of space one-on-one with Hugo Lloris, only to see his touch let him down, and Dubravka kept the score at 1-2 at the other end, producing a fine stop from Moussa Sissoko's close-range volley.

The Newcastle fans will be relatively encouraged by the performance however and will know that against more-modest opposition the points will come.

Mauricio Pochettino is happy with Tottenham's squad and praised the club for keeping Harry Kane as he hinted at Brexit and Spurs' new stadium being to blame for no new signings.

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