Lucas Moura Starts - Tottenham Hotspur Team vs Newcastle United Confirmed

Newcastle United were left without anything to show for a positive opening day performance against Tottenham.

Jan Vertonghen bundled the ball over the line with his head at the far post to give Spurs the lead (8) despite Martin Dubravka's best efforts on the line, before a tale of two crosses and another two headers.

Kenedy's heavy 51st-minute touch allowed Hugo Lloris to preserve Spurs' lead before opposite number Dubravka showed lightning reactions to deny ex-Newcastle man Moussa Sissoko.

Pochettino's decision to name strong team pays dividends: Eyebrows were raised when Mauricio Pochettino named his starting XI with a whole host of his World Cup stars included. After only 18 minutes their hunger and energy levels were clear. Rafa Benitez will make them hard to beat.

Spurs had nine players in Russian Federation until the final weekend and they only returned to training on Monday, with the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen and Hugo Lloris having differing levels of fitness. He managed only four goals in all of last season.

Newcastle: Dubravka 7, Yedlin 7, Clark 7, Lascelles 6, Dummett 6, Diame 6, Shelvey 8, Ritchie 7, Perez 6, Kenedy 6, Joselu 6. Stoke City and Middlesbrough were both heavily linked with the midfielder, but a transfer didn't materialise, and he remained a Newcastle United player.

It said it is contacting people who may have been affected to let them know what has happened and what they should do. Managing director Dermot King said: "I would like to reassure guests that no financial data has been compromised".

"I am happy in the way the players arrived after the holidays, and Dele was one of them". Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen will form the centre-back pairing.

However, they were more open than he would have liked against Tottenham. It's a delightful deep cross from Aurier, he sets it up on a plate for Alli who couldn't miss. He guides it into the top corner from close range with a cushioned header.

DF Davinson Sanchez, 7 - A lapse of concentration allowed Joselu a free header for Newcastle to equalise but, that apart, the Colombian worldwide was solid and always quick to spot danger. In the 84th minute, it was Rondon who turned well and shot the ball with precision only to see it bounce off the bar.

Labour MP and Spurs fan David Lammy, a champion of the anti-Brexit campaign group Best for Britain, said that Premier League clubs were "being forced to pay a colossal Brexit tax in this transfer window thanks to the pound's slump".

But it proved another frustrating afternoon for England skipper Harry Kane, who left Tyneside still awaiting his first ever Premier League goal in August after 14 games.
