Spurs begin EPL season with entertaining win at Newcastle

Premier League Mauricio Pochettino Faces Acid Test After Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino was full of praise for Harry Kane even though he failed to get on the scoresheet in a 2-1 win at Newcastle United.

For large spells the Magpies more than matched the visitors, but goals from Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli either side of a Joselu equaliser in the opening stages of the game handed Spurs all three points.

Spurs won't have the goals early on so Newcastle will hold on this year.

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.

Diame was afforded room in the box to clatter a left-footed shot against the upright, while Alli should have done better at the other end when picked out by another delightful Eriksen ball.

But Newcastle levelled shortly after through Joselu, ghosting in-between Spurs defenders before heading home Ritchie's wonderful ball from the right flank. For Tottenham, a team with top-four aspirations and even higher, away matches go a long way towards achieving high goals, and they'll enter this one as the heavy favorite.

"Newcastle were a very good opponent. Some people make a drama in football and drama for me is another thing", Pochettino said.

He took up a position on the left of midfield, regularly helping Ben Davies, and gained possession nine times for Spurs, more than any of his team-mates.

Tottenham were confirmed as the winners of this summer's International Champions Cup on Saturday, hours after also kicking off their Premier League season with a victory.

"I think all the squad showed their commitment with the club, with the team".

Certainly, Spurs can not afford a repeat of the sluggish start that marred the opening weeks of last season if they are to challenge champions Manchester City and a Liverpool side that, by stark contrast, will feature £160 million of new signings this term.

"It was very tough".
