Dele Alli header helps Tottenham Hotspur beat Newcastle United in opening game

Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho

The home side gradually settled into the game after a whirlwind opening half-hour, but with Diame in particular guilty of repeatedly squandering the ball, they struggled to build momentum and Sanchez might have deepened their woes with a glancing 38th-minute header which flew across the face of goal. The visitors regained the lead but were unable to find the third goal that would have given breathing space as they exhausted.

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. He managed only four goals in all of last season. They are ok. I hope that Monday they will start to train with the team.

And Mauricio Pochettino has piled on the praise for the likes of Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane, as well as goalscorers Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli.

Newcastle: Dubravka (7), Yedlin (6), Clark (6), Lascelles (6), Dummett (6), Diame (6), Shelvey (7), Ritchie (6), Perez (6), Kenedy (5), Joselu (6). Goal-line technology is required for this one. Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen will form the centre-back pairing. The Spurs defender bundles it over the line, despite Newcastle's desperate effort to clear.

18' - GOAL! Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham: Alli restores Spurs' lead! Newcastle's defence is carved open once more. He guides it into the top corner from close range with a cushioned header. He will know that it was a golden chance to score and he should have done better. He does everything right but is missing that bit of luck needed to score.

He must have been exhausted from a summer of football but scored the opener - his first Premier League goal for five seasons - and made a crucial block to prevent Salomon Rondon equalising.

Substitute Rondon nearly snatched a point five minutes from time when his shot hit Vertonghen and looped over Lloris, only for the ball to come back off the crossbar.

The novelty of Kane's run without a goal in the Premier League season's opening month stretching to 14 matches will not concern Pochettino greatly.

It was no surprise that he started against Tottenham, as he is a crucial first-team player for Newcastle and he proved that he has the quality to influence games in the Premier League.
