Alli sinks Newcastle; Pogba shines for Manchester United

Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur's English midfielder Dele Alli (R) watches as Newcastle United's Slovakian goalkeeper Martin Dubravka saves his shot during the English Premier League football match between Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur at St James' Park in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, north east England on August 11, 2018.

The club played all their home fixtures at Wembley past year 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.

"The players that are out of the squad are because the same situation, are all in the condition to train".

"I'm always happy to exchange views - but let's try and keep it out of the playground shall we?"

"With all of the circumstances, we prepared for the game with a lot of players that only started training on Monday", the coach said.

Pochettino said at the end of last season that he wanted the club's hierarchy to be "brave" - a comment which many took as a strong hint he wanted new recruits to push on from a third successive top three finish.

Then once you look at the likes of Sels, Haidara, Mbemba, Armstrong, Toney and the two loans out (Gayle and Colback), they were all fringe/unwanted players, maybe excluding Gayle - but I feel he would be 3rd or 4th choice with Muto and Rondon now at the club.

But do we actually need to be anxious about any of these?

Yedlin was helped off the pitch in added time and television cameras showed him being helped slowly through the tunnel by a member of Newcastle's medical staff.

Newcastle players were applauded off the pitch at full-time, and fans can be assured that they are making progress under Benitez - despite the club's lack of spending in the transfer market.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen's early header put Spurs ahead with technology confirming his effort had crossed the goal line by 9mm.

Kenedy was guilty of squandering arguably Newcastle's best chance of drawing level midway through the second half. We made some mistakes and you have to give credit to the other team.

Their glee did not last long, with Alli arriving at the back post to head in Serge Aurier's deep cross for what proved to be the victor.
