Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham: Dele Alli scores victor for visitors

Spurs achieved goal as Brexit influenced lack of transfers – Pochettino

The Goal Decision System showed the header crossed the goal line by 9mm, with 5mm considered the technology's margin for error.

Asked if the striker was still to return to his best form, Pochettino said: "For me, he is in his best form whether he scores or doesn't score".

"Davinson had a great touch with the first header - and there could have been another one later because from the other side, he had a first touch again, but I didn't make that run again".

The only surprise was that, after Alli's 18th-minute victor, there was no further score with both goalkeepers, Martin Dubravka and Hugo Lloris, forced to make a string of impressive saves.

Headed goals from Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli saw Tottenham Hotspur register an opening day victory against Newcastle United, although Mauricio Pochettino's men were forced to weather a second-half onslaught to secure three points.

The woodwork had earlier denied Mohamed Diame an equaliser, Newcastle's Senegalese midfielder rattling the upright with a rasping left-foot volley. I thought, "Okay", and then everything might have been in slow motion. It's up to the manager or the chairman if they decide to bring someone else in but we enjoy playing together and we're happy with the philosophy of how we want to play here.

We can do better, we need to play better, be more consistent, not allow the opponent to create so many chances.

Within the Premier League's own fantasy football game however, Kane's stature ensures he remains a popular selection, with nearly a third of managers picking the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot victor for the first gameweek of the season.

The Belgian said: "It was a short preparation for some players".

After such little downtime for so many key players, in addition to the lack of summer arrivals, Tottenham could face long-term fatigue later in the campaign, but Alli added: "It's a joy to be back".

"Yes, many good performances from players that were very professional during their holidays".

Rafa Benitez has named his team to take on Tottenham Hotspur in Newcastle's Premier League opener.

Spurs: Lloris, Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Sissoko, Dier (Amos, 88), Moura (Dembele, 68), Eriksen, Alli (Son, 80) Kane.

"They have so many strong, big lads. It is also the physicality, the strength and they have all these things".
