Newcastle United suffer unlucky defeat to Tottenham on opening day

Tottenham Hotspur beat Newcastle United 2-1 at St. James' Park in the early game Saturday. 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.

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.

All the goals came inside the opening 18 minutes as Joselu cancelled out Jan Vertonghen's opener before Alli struck to start Tottenham's season with a win.

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

Spurs regained their lead in a topsy-turvy opening, as Aurier's unsafe cross from deep on the right was nodded back across goal and into the corner by Alli, who scored in the 2-0 win at St James' Park on the opening day of last season.

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

Dr Karunarathne noted that blue light alone or retinal that hadn't absorbed blue light did not have any effect on the cells. A new study conducted by the optical chemistry research division at The University of Toledo sheds light on the situation.

N'Golo Kante, Jorginho impress in new-look midfield as Chelsea cruise
The winning goal came just 34 minutes in, as World Cup-winner N'Golo Kante scored with a nice finish to the far post. Jorginho will clearly be the key, the expert at quickly shifting the ball that Sarri knows well from Napoli.

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

When asked about his previous comments, Pochettino said the fact the club was able to keep stars like Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min while spending £1bn on a new stadium and redeveloping their training ground was "brave".

More unconvincing set-piece defending left Lloris thwarting Ayoze Perez at close quarters and Tottenham just about hung on after Vertonghen deflected an effort from substitute Rondon against the crossbar.

Substitute Rondon nearly snatched a point five minutes from time when his shot hit Vertonghen and looped over Lloris, only for the ball to come back off the crossbar.

One for the future in Luke Amos, perhaps; the 21-year-old made his Premier League debut, coming on for the final few minutes.

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.
