Tottenham edge past gutsy Newcastle

But Tottenham lifted the gloom with a gritty victory at St James' Park thanks to first half headers from Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli.

Spurs boss Pochettino saluted his players for refusing to be distracted and called on supporters and the squad to stay together.

"The staff and the players need to stay together and the most important thing is the fans in a hard time because we are going to move to a new stadium".

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.

"Eric Dier was so exhausted". Spurs can lift their performances a few levels above what they produced in the north east of England; how often Newcastle can perform in such a combative manner will have a key influence over their survival hopes.

He said: "They have too many big lads, strong lads, who are good in the air, and the delivery was really good".

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

"But we are talking about one of the top six, they have six players who can make the difference all on their own".

"If they choose to stay in Tottenham the rules are so clear".

A gutsy second half display saw Kenedy waste a one on one and the Spurs woodwork struck twice, so maybe a deserved point went astray. But we are in the competition, and if the young ones like Luke Amos deserve to be on the bench and maybe play, they are going to play.

"You always need a week or so to switch off after a big tournament like the World Cup, because you finish exhausted both mentally and physically, but you feed off the elation and satisfaction of winning the biggest trophy ever".

At St James Park yesterday, despite the ongoing shenanigans behind the scenes, the Newcastle United support got behind their team.

Rafa Benitez believes Newcastle need players who can deliver quality "every single week" in order to climb up the Premier League.

"It's true that, for me, winning the World Cup brought a lot of positive energy, a lot of energy for the future to keep the same mentality, keep working hard, keep leading the team". If you put all the circumstances our players deserve massive, massive credit for the victory because it wasn't easy. "Football is about enjoyment".
