New season, same old story for Harry Kane, Tottenham and Newcastle

Premier League Mauricio Pochettino Faces Acid Test After Tottenham Hotspur New season, same old story for Harry Kane, Tottenham and Newcastle
Andrew Wong | 12 August, 2018, 08:44

Dele Alli scored a first-half victor as Tottenham beat Newcastle 2-1 on the opening weekend of the Premier League season at St James' Park. Tottenham looked like the more dominant side for most of the first half as they maintained more possession, created more scoring chances and found the back of the net on two occasions.

With the game only eight minutes old, Vertonghen, fresh from Belgium's third-placed World Cup finish, gave the visitors the lead when his header against the underside of the crossbar was adjudged to have crossed the line by goal-line technology.

The lead lasted just three minutes as Joselu rewarded manager Rafael Benitez for his faith in picking him ahead of summer signings Rondon and Yoshinori Muto.

"I think it was important to start with three points".

In addition to disrupting air traffic control, the incident also caused alarm among locals, many of whom recorded the incident. One witness filmed the plane doing a large loop-the-loop, which they first thought was part of an air show rehearsal.

Certainly, Spurs can not afford a repeat of the sluggish start that marred the opening weeks of last season if they are to challenge champions Manchester City and a Liverpool side that, by stark contrast, will feature £160 million of new signings this term.

Who would have thought that the Premier League would be so conscious about the benefits of recycling?

But Newcastle levelled shortly after through Joselu, ghosting in-between Spurs defenders before heading home Ritchie's wonderful ball from the right flank. "But what happens with Harry is that he can not score three goals in every game".

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

So there's no feeding putts. "You've got to decide what you want to do with it before you get out there, and it was a lot of fun. Open champion Brooks Koepka , who had a 20-foot birdie putt he wanted to make for no other reason than he likes to make birdies.

Not to be outdone at the other end, Lloris stood up well to block Ayoze Perez's shot.

Newcastle's Venezuelan forward Salomon Rondon almost enjoyed a dream debut after coming off the substitutes' bench but his late effort was deflected onto the crossbar after a desperate block from Vertonghen.

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

Can Harry Kane break his duck against Fulham next Saturday or will the curse go on?
