Paul Merson states his prediction for Newcastle v Tottenham

Paul Merson states his prediction for Newcastle v Tottenham

Jan Vertonghen opened the scoring with an early header and Joselu's equaliser was quickly erased by Alli as all three goals came in the first 18 minutes.

Only Dubravka's heroics prevented former Newcastle player Moussa Sissoko from adding to Tottenham's tally when he produced a fine save to keep out the Frenchman's close-range 56th-minute effort.

Mauricio Pochettino is happy with Tottenham's squad and praised the club for keeping Harry Kane as he hinted at Brexit and Spurs' new stadium being to blame for no new signings.

This was a exhausted performance from the World Cup Golden Boot victor. "But what happens with Harry is that he can not score three goals in every game", Pochettino added. "They started to work Monday and try to prepare the team and start to work in the same way as the previous season".

June 21, 2018: ESPN .com confirms the McNair family retained the law firm of Murphy, Falcon & Murphy to represent the family. Strength and conditioning coach Rick Court is the most frequently named member of the coaching staff, though head coach D.J.

Pochettino had been expected to be without as many as nine of his side for the game, but only Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier were not named in the opening day squad having jetted off to this summer's World Cup. "All the squad and all the players will have the possibility to play".

Speaking after the game, he said: "I told you [the other day] that numerous players returned in a good condition". The match between the Magpies and Spurs was full of action for 90 minutes, but in the end it was Tottenham that secured three points with a 2-1 victory. "He has been strong and focused and he has shown good quality today". The manager decides who plays, names or no names. "We don't get caught up in what's going on around [us]". For Tottenham, a team with top-four aspirations and even higher, away matches go a long way towards achieving high goals, and they'll enter this one as the heavy favorite.

Many of Tottenham's World Cup stars had only a few days' training before featuring against Newcastle and Pochettino was impressed by their commitment and energy levels.
