Spurs edge Newcastle in opener

The club played all their home fixtures at Wembley a year ago but had planned that their new stadium would be open in time for their first home fixture of the 2018-19 season after they requested dispensation from the Premier League to play three of their first four league matches away from home.

"You could feel the fans had the belief that we could do something, so it was a pity".

"We can do better of course and we need to play better and be more consistent, and not allow the opponent to create so many chances, but it was so hard and a massive challenge to connect everything and play like a team in only the few days we had to prepare". 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.

"For me, he is in his best form whether he scores or doesn't score". I think with all the circumstance it was a massive effort.

"Last season I scored against Newcastle away in the first game too, and now I just want to keep improving".

As was the case in England's later knockout games last month, Kane regularly dropped deep to link the play with mixed results, while his customary sharpness in the penalty area was not to the fore.

Jan Vertonghen has professed himself a goal-line technology convert after helping to get Tottenham's Premier League season off to the ideal start.

Spurs continued to dominate possession and regained the lead with just 18 minutes played when full-back Serge Aurier drove a cross to the far post for the unmarked Alli to head past Dubravka.

"It's a position I like to get in", Alli said. He worked a lot for the team. The binary nature of top-flight football means defeat would have doubtless been put down to the transfer timidity and prompted yet even more heated debate.

"Obviously, today we faced probably the biggest favourite to win the title, next week we have another big game but we will be better prepared because we have this game behind us".

Amos appeared for his first-team debut at St James' Park after getting a pep talk from Pochettino on the touchline.

"He has been strong and focused and he has shown good quality today".

"Many only came back and started working on Monday, so they deserve massive credit".
