Lucas Moura Starts - Tottenham Hotspur Team vs Newcastle United Confirmed

Colombian World Cup hero has also been linked with a move to the Red Devils

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.

Spurs continued to dominate possession and regained the lead with just 18 minutes played when full-back Serge Aurier drove a cross to the far post for the unmarked Alli to head past Dubravka. I feel so proud, I think the three points were so important for us.

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

Fabian Schar, Ki Sung-yueng, Yoshinori Muto and Salomon Rondon have all been left on the substitutes' bench for the fixture in the North-East.

It concluded a frantic opening to the match, where Joselu's 11th-minute header cancelled out a Jan Vertonghen effort that was shown to be nine millimetres over the line by the Goal Decision System.

Joselu pulled a goal back for Newcastle just three minutes later as he headed home Ritchie's pinpoint cross from the right flank to equalise for the home side in a breathless start to the clash.

Former cycling champion Ullrich detained after attack on prostitute
Ullrich was arrested and then released the next day, although a restraining order was taken out against him by Schweiger. Mr Ullrich said he was only trying to talk to his neighbour.

"In our last season at White Hart Lane we played without a corner and then we moved to Wembley and it is important the fans know the players need their help".

"At the end of the day, we kept the ball well".

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.

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

But Pochettino said: "Score or not score, I don't have doubts about this".

Pochettino handed a debut to academy graduate Luke Amos, bringing him on for the "tired" Dier.

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.
