Spurs boss Pochettino reacts to Rose axing

Spurs boss Pochettino reacts to Rose axing

New signings Schar, Ki, Muto and Rondon all started on the bench.

Yet, while Mike Ashley was nearly as reluctant to invest as counterpart Joe Lewis - and the owner faced huge protests before kick-off outside Sports Direct - Newcastle did make one astute signing in the form of Kenedy.

Spurs boss Pochettino saluted his players for refusing to be distracted and called on supporters and the squad to stay together.

Spurs were linked with Aston Villa's Jack Grealish, however, a deal was not completed, leaving manager Pochettino without any fresh faces in London.

Pochettino has allayed injury concerns but says he will be sharing minutes around to keep everyone as fresh as possible and give all of his squad members opportunities to fight for places. It was a mixed bag again from the Ivorian - with Kieran Trippier absent altogether - but his cross for Dele Alli's goal was exquisite.

In fact, several Chelsea fans on social media were questioning whether he should have been kept at Stamford Bridge as Maurizio Sarri gets ready to usher in a new era. The presence of Joselu in the line-up is often cited as evidence by the Toon Army that new strikers are needed around the club.

The Newcastle fans will be relatively encouraged by the performance however and will know that against more-modest opposition the points will come.

Newcastle brought on Rondon with half an hour remaining, and he almost grabbed a point in the closing stages, seeing his effort deflect off Vertonghen and onto the bar. They were fluid in their attacking positions.

This is undoubtedly great news, as the original developers of Torchlight , Runic, shut down around nine months ago. The shared world part points to an online only game with persistent servers and procedurally generated worlds.

If there is one cause of concern for Pochettino it will be that Kane did not appear to be at his sharpest.

Pochettino's decision to name strong team pays dividends: Eyebrows were raised when Mauricio Pochettino named his starting XI with a whole host of his World Cup stars included.

DF Ben Davies, 7 - A curiously quiet game from one of the few players to have the benefit of a summer break. Lucky not to pick up a second yellow card and Spurs looked more secure after he was substituted.

Newcastle were level within three minutes when Sanchez and Vertonghen were caught ball-watching as Matt Ritchie sent over an inviting centre from the right which Joselu headed into the bottom corner of the net past an exposed Hugo Lloris.

"I think the last game (against Augsburg), we can definitely take a lot of positives from that - okay, we didn't win but we got everything we need out of the game". The best came in the 85th minute when Salomon Rondon had a shot deflect off the crossbar.

DF Jan Vertonghen, 8 - Spurs' man of the match started this season where he finished last: On top of his game.

Danny Rose was left out of Tottenham's squad for victory at Newcastle United.
