Newcastle United vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report

Rafa Benitez believes Newcastle United will have a successful season if the perform in the same manner as Saturday's loss to Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs will not be handing any debuts out after becoming the first team in Premier League history not to make a signing in the summer transfer window.

Spurs took all three points in the North-East after Dele Alli's headed victor 18 minutes into the game capped off a lively start in which defender Jan Vertonghen had put the visitors ahead before Joselu's equaliser.

Despite Tottenham's hard-fought victory, there was another August blank for Harry Kane, who started even though the England striker had only returned to training on Monday following his notable World Cup exploits.

Before the match 2,000 Newcastle fans held a peaceful protest against owner Mike Ashley outside one of his Sports Direct stores in Newcastle. Then with Brexit it's worse because the cost is 30 per cent more.

Pochettino added: "What the club is doing is showing it is so fearless".

Such inactivity proved no impediment as the visitors rode their luck to seal a repeat of their opening day victory at St James' Park 12 months ago.

It only took 8 minutes for Mauricio Pochettino's side to break the deadlock.

Woods struggled through the two opening rounds at Pebble Beach as he carded a 74 and 72 to head into the weekend four over par. But if his powers of recovery from that grim scenario were remarkable then so, too, were his escapology feats in St Louis .

Newcastle answered three minutes later, with Joselu meeting a cross from Matt Ritchie at the edge of the box and glancing a header past the helpless Hugo Lloris.

With momentum on their side and a full-house roaring them on, Benitez's side looked set to build from a position of strength. Tottenham's second goal was simple in its construction and should have been comfortably dealt with.

Spurs regained their lead in a topsy-turvy opening, as Aurier's risky 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.

An increasingly open second period surprisingly failed to produce further addition to the score, as both goalkeepers excelled.

But Spurs would not be denied, with Alli coming through to restore their lead.

Not to be outdone at the other end, Lloris stood up well to block Ayoze Perez's shot.

The Magpies should have been level six minutes into the half when Joselu picked out Kenedy in acres of space, but the Brazilian's first touch let him down horribly.
