Scrappy Spurs open with away win in Newcastle

Toby Alderweireld

Lucas Moura often looked like a strike partner for Harry Kane with Christian Eriksen and Alli floating between the centre of the field and the left.

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. "I was so happy about that".

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.

But Pochettino said: "Score or not score, I don't have doubts about this". We feel so proud about that. We knew our jobs and we have been playing together for a while. He's in his best form. Be sure that he is going to score.

One of the only upshots from Tottenham's fruitless transfer window is that there is no bedding-in period required for new signings because they haven't got any. "But what happens with Harry is that he can not score three goals in every game". His decision making was mixed, but that will get better as the season develops.

Craig will return for the fifth time as Bond in 2019, in an as yet unnamed movie directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle. Idris Elba has given a cryptic and playful update after a week of renewed speculation about him becoming the next James Bond .

Tottenham have stability on their side, with no new faces to integrate into the line-up, however their only hope of closing the gap between themselves and Manchester City was to strengthen during the transfer window. "He has been strong and focused and he has shown good quality today". There's massive competition between them and I'm going to rotate in the next few weeks, trying to give the possibility to all the players to play and be important.

"I think the last game (against Augsburg), we can definitely take a lot of positives from that - okay, we didn't win but we got everything we need out of the game".

"They were linked with Harry Maguire, they were linked with Alderweireld, the Tottenham Hotspur defender". Rafa Benitez will make them hard to beat. For Tottenham, a team with top-four aspirations and even higher, away matches go a long way towards achieving high goals, and they'll enter this one as the heavy favorite.

"If we want to win and challenge for big things we need to all put our minds and energy into the collective and understand that the collective is the most important".

GK Hugo Lloris, 7 - Had little chance with Newcastle's goal but otherwise showed good command of his area, coming out decisively on several occasions to make timely interceptions.
