Tottenham Hotspur Striker Harry Kane In ''Best Form'' Claims Boss Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham’s World Cup stars in good condition – Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur beat Newcastle United 2-1 at St James' Park on Saturday, with Spurs battling to victory with several of their stars playing after just a few days of preseason training following the World Cup.

Spurs took an early lead as Vertonghen nodded home at the back post, with the goal awarded via goal-line technology.

"I told them yesterday, for me, it's like we start from zero".

"It's a long season and we've got to improve".

Who would have thought that the Premier League would be so conscious about the benefits of recycling? New signings Schar, Ki, Muto and Rondon all started on the bench.

The England international's contribution sealed a 2-1 win at St James' Park, with all the goals coming inside the opening 18 minutes as Joselu cancelled out Jan Vertonghen's opener before Alli struck. It sounds insane but we defended well with the ball. "But what happens with Harry is that he can not score three goals in every game", Pochettino added.

The Denmark global delivered the resulting corner for defender Davinson Sanchez to attack.

Diame was unfortunate not to level within two minutes of the restart when his stinging left-foot shot came back off the post, although Alli passed up a chance to extend his side's lead when he bundled Kane's mishit shot straight to Dubravka.

And Lloris then saved well from Ayoze Perez from a tight angle.

The home side nearly took the lead through one of their new signings, Salomon Rondon, in the 85th minute, but the Venezuelan was denied by an excellent block from Vertonghen, which deflected the ball onto the bar.

An outside shout for the World Cup, Jonjo Shelvey was again among Newcastle's brightest players, while Jamaal Lascelles was solid yet not outstanding.

The old stat about Kane not scoring for Spurs in August is trotted out a lot but his effort against Newcastle could not be denied.

In a contest where most of the football was played in the final third at both ends, it was Alli's defensive work that impressed, as well as his clever finish.
