Tottenham edge past gutsy Newcastle

Premier League Mauricio Pochettino Faces Acid Test After Tottenham Hotspur

Mauricio Pochettino has named his Tottenham Hotspur starting eleven and substitutes for their clash against Newcastle United at St. James' Park later today.

For Spurs, World Cup-winning captain Hugo Lloris started in goal, joined in the line-up by Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and England captain Harry Kane. Harry Kane, in particular, seemed out of sorts, and his wait for a first ever Premier League goal in August goes on.

The World Cup Golden Boot victor has now gone 14 games spanning 988 minutes without scoring in the opening month of the campaign, though on this occasion, it mattered little.

Ashley, the club's notoriously parsimonious billionaire owner, saw fit to spend £90 million (10.6 million euros, $11.5 million) on the ailing department store group House of Fraser.

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.

That's going to be determined using current data, rather than the 10-year-old numbers the agency is now using. A driver with no crashes could be paying the same premium as a driver with three at-fault crashes in a year.

It's easy to imagine the conversation Mauricio Pochettino might have had with Benitez as they shook hands on the touchline as it could be argued that both their respective clubs had a disappointing window.

But thanks to more questionable defending, their parity lasted just seven minutes.

Right before the 20th minute, Dele Alli put the visitors back in front with another header, this time on a cross from Serge Aurier. Their best fell to new loan signing Salomon Rondon but his shot deflected onto the crossbar when he was played through.

Newcastle's Slovakian keeper provided an even better stop to keep out a well-struck effort from Moussa Sissoko.

"So many goals I've scored have been taken away from me".

But anything less than a convincing victory will stir debate about Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy's failure to deliver new players for his manager at the start of a campaign that will see the club move into the rebuilt White Hart Lane stadium after a year at Wembley.
