Mauricio Pochettino spoke to the press after Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 win at Newcastle United in our Premier League opener and despite star striker Harry Kane not finding the back of the net, he was still happy with his performance.
Kane, who became a father for the second time on Wednesday, Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli all started at St James’ Park despite only returning to training on Monday following their endeavours in Russia.
Vertonghen and Alli both scored either side of Joselu’s equaliser – the Goal Decision System showed the defender’s header was nine millimetres over the line – with all the goals coming inside the opening 18 minutes.
Next up for Spurs is our final game at Wembley, when Fulham are the visitors next Saturday. COYS.
