Pochettino impressed with Tottenham effort in opening-day victory

Pochettino impressed with Tottenham effort in opening-day victory

To put his August curse into more perspective, Kane has had 46 shots in 14 games Premier League games in August, bit has failed to score in every single one.

"The effort from the players was massive, it is not easy to provide them a good holiday and rest".

This was evident when he told BBC Newcastle that "they know we can not waste energy and we need all this feel-good factor during the games". You have to stay switched on and we're happy we got the three points.

"With all of the circumstances, we prepared for the game with a lot of players that only started training on Monday".

"Yes, many good performances from players that were very professional during their holidays".

"I am not anxious, I am not sad, I am so happy".

"And I think that was a great job from the club to keep the best player and keep the manager".

He said: "We know this will be disappointing for all our season tickets holders, premium members and our fans worldwide".

"Nobody is injured. Only it is about taking the best decision", he said. Now he says: 'I am World Cup champion!'

Special dispensation was given for Tottenham to host Fulham at the national stadium next weekend, giving them further time to get the "Tottenham Hotspur Stadium" ready, and the report suggests that plans are now in place to continue using it until early 2019.

"If you are suddenly expecting Tottenham to collapse in a heap because they didn't make a signing, you are going to be mistaken".

Apart from Merino (who wasn't starting anyway) we haven't lost anyone who I personally think Rafa would have chose to keep.

"Everyone else, back here at Tottenham we got to the [FA Cup] semifinal a year ago but we need to go that one step further and win". "We want to achieve things", Alli said of the desire of his team-mates to get back as soon as possible.

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benítez was upbeat in his post-match interviews after his side lost their opening fixture at home to Tottenham Hotspur, believing his side showed enough to warrant a point.

"We can do better of course and we need to play better and be more consistent, and not allow the opponent to create so many chances, but it was so hard and a massive challenge to connect everything and play like a team in only the few days we had to prepare".
