‘We need to stay together’: Pochettino proud as Tottenham make a stand

Premier League Mauricio Pochettino Faces Acid Test After Tottenham Hotspur ‘We need to stay together’: Pochettino proud as Tottenham make a stand

Dele Alli of Tottenham Hotspur celebrates after scoring his team's second goal during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur at St. James Park on August 11, 2018 in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. The second half was back and forth with great saves and great chances for both teams.

The Colombian's header down was met at the far post by Vertonghen under pressure from Paul Dummett and the ball ricocheted down from the crossbar, with referee Martin Atkinson awarding the goal after being alerted that the ball had crossed the line.

"I told them yesterday for me it's like we start from zero", Spurs manager Pochettino said. [We are] giving out supporters another hard season when we move to the new stadium.

The Premier League is finally back. New signings Schar, Ki, Muto and Rondon all started on the bench.

But Newcastle levelled shortly after through Joselu, ghosting in-between Spurs defenders before heading home Ritchie's wonderful ball from the right flank.

Three goals in seven first half minutes opened the first Saturday of the new season in style.

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

"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together".

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.

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.

The gong could have also been awarded to Jan Vertonghen, but it was apt that England midfielder Alli scored the victor after a busy summer.

The Frenchman was fortunate, however, as Kenedy's control let the Brazilian down at a crucial point, when a more assured first touch would have put the on-loan Chelsea midfielder in on goal.
