HereThe Tottenham Hotspur players have taken to social media following the opening day 2-1 win against Newcastle United in the Premier League.
Spurs needed just eight minutes to get their noses in front when, after Magpies goalkeeper Martin Dubravka had turned away a Christian Eriksen shot, the Denmark international delivered the resulting corner for defender Davinson Sanchez to attack.
The Colombian’s header down was met at the far post by Jan Vertonghen under pressure from Paul Dummett and the ball ricocheted down from the crossbar, with referee Martin Atkinson awarding the goal after being alerted that the ball had crossed the line.
Newcastle equalised just three minutes later, but Spurs continued to dominate possession and regained their lead with just 18 minutes played when full-back Serge Aurier drove a cross to the far post for the unmarked England international Alli – who overcame any post-World Cup rustiness – to power a header past Dubravka.
Here’s what the Spurs players had to say.
