Dele Alli: 'Tottenham Hotspur have got to improve'

Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino

Dele Alli silenced the complaints about Tottenham's lack of signings as the England midfielder sealed a 2-1 win at Newcastle in their Premier League opener on Saturday.

"They had a couple of good chances and hit the post and bar in the second half", Vertonghen said when interviewed by Sky Sports after the match at St James' Park.

Spurs opened the scoring in the eighth minute when Cristian Eriksen sent his corner into the mixer, Davinson Sanchez fired toward the far post and Vertonghen scored from a header just in front of Paul Dummett.

"I told them yesterday for me it's like we start from zero", Spurs manager Pochettino said.

Newcastle will hope that their new striker can make a major impact this season, with the majority calling for Muto to start the next game - here are the best tweets.

The Premier League is finally back.

Authorities Probe How 'Suicidal' Employee Could Steal Plane
They believe there were no passengers on board and no structures hit when the plane crashed into Ketron Island on Friday night. Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air officials said they were still working closely with authorities to investigate what happened.

For large spells the Magpies more than matched the visitors, but goals from Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli either side of a Joselu equaliser in the opening stages of the game handed Spurs all three points.

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", Pochettino added.

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. The best came in the 85th minute when Salomon Rondon had a shot deflect off the crossbar.

Kenedy and Ayoze Perez also had good opportunities to score, but Hugo Lloris remained composed and made two brilliant saves.

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.

Rose, who was linked with a move away from White Hart Lane this summer, and Trippier are thought to have been allowed more time to fully recover and prepare for the new season.
