Tottenham start the 2018/2019 season the same way they did the previous campaign by defeating Newcastle United, this a 1-2 final at St. James' Park.
Mauricio Pochettino made many a fantasy manager smile by inserting Harry Kane into the XI, though the World Cup Golden Boot winner continued his August woes, not looking particularly sharp in the final third. All goals came in this match came in a 10-minute stretch early on. Christian Eriksen sent a corner in that Davinson Sanchez would head toward goal. It took a bounce to Jan Vertonghen who guided it with his head, and the ball just cleared the line by a few blades of grass. The defense turned off after that opener, allowing the Magpies to equalize less than 3 minutes later. Spurs went ahead for good in the 18th minute though, this time via a Dele Alli header, made easy at the back post by a pinpoint cross from Serge Aurier. Hugo Lloris was the second half hero, stopping a potential Newcastle equalizer shortly after the hour mark. Aug 11 - 9:33 AM
