Newcastle United 1 Tottenham Hotspur 2 - Your Chance To Rate The Players

Jamie Redknapp

That goalless August albatross is still around his neck and he will have to use the next few games to play himself into form.

With the game only eight minutes old, Vertonghen, fresh from Belgium's third-placed World Cup finish, gave the visitors the lead when his header against the underside of the crossbar was adjudged to have crossed the line by goal-line technology. That wasn't a huge surprise as they are coached by Rafa Benitez, who pays close attention to the organisation of the back four. This was an early game previous year, and Spurs got a couple of late goals, but I feel they'll find it hard due to the World Cup. They are ok. I hope that Monday they will start to train with the team.

However, Pochettino insists he's not concerned by the lack of new signings as Spurs have tied key players like Harry Kane and Hueng-min Son down to long-term contracts while they've also kept hold of Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele and Toby Alderweireld.

Newcastle: Dubravka 7, Yedlin 7, Clark 7, Lascelles 6, Dummett 6, Diame 6, Shelvey 8, Ritchie 7, Perez 6, Kenedy 6, Joselu 6. Eriksen's corner delivery is met by Sanchez who flicks it on to Vertonghen at the back post.

But Mourinho made it clear he was desperate to land a new central defender.

Halep defeats Garcia to reach semifinal in Montreal
Halep was in control from the outset against a nervous-looking Barty, whose challenge was undone by a string of unforced errors. But to do so she will have to get past defending champion Elina Svitolina after she dispatched Elise Mertens 7-5 6-3 on Friday.

Mauricio Pochettino admitted he was proud of his Tottenham stars as they put on a united front to start their Premier League season with a 2-1 win at Newcastle.

However, they were more open than he would have liked against Tottenham. A golden chance for Newcastle as Joselu slips through Kenedy! Dubravka to the rescue! He does everything right but is missing that bit of luck needed to score.

Newcastle's Venezuelan forward Salomon Rondon almost enjoyed a dream debut after coming off the substitutes' bench but his late effort was deflected onto the crossbar after a desperate block from Vertonghen.

Spurs have never lost a Premier League fixture in which Dele Alli has scored, winning 27 and drawing six of the previous 33 games he has netted in.

But it proved another frustrating afternoon for England skipper Harry Kane, who left Tyneside still awaiting his first ever Premier League goal in August after 14 games.

Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez also endured a disappointing window as the Magpies made a large profit on their transfer activity so they'll face a hard task to improve on last seasons 10th-placed finish.
