Dele Alli: 'Tottenham Hotspur have got to improve'

Alderweireld

Tottenham have stability on their side, with no new faces to integrate into the line-up, however their only hope of closing the gap between themselves and Manchester City was to strengthen during the transfer window. "Sometimes we were a bit lucky but it was a very good start for us".

Central midfielders Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele were also on show today, while full-back duo Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose were left out of the match day squad altogether.

"Newcastle showed a lot of energy and had quality". His main weakness continues to be his distribution, which frequently puts his defenders under pressure.

Spurs continued to dominate possession and regained the lead with just 18 minutes played when full-back Serge Aurier drove a cross to the far post for the unmarked Alli to head past Dubravka.

Newcastle had been disjointed and did not merit the equaliser at the time they got it. He will know that it was a golden chance to score and he should have done better. Eriksen's corner delivery is met by Sanchez who flicks it on to Vertonghen at the back post. He managed only four goals in all of last season.

Harry Kane, who last season became the first Tottenham player to score 30 goals in a Premier League campaign, stretched his run to 14 games for Spurs in August without a league goal.

Tottenham handed Luke Amos his first Premier League appearance when he was subbed on for Eric Dier in the 89th minute. Lucky not to pick up a second yellow card and Spurs looked more secure after he was substituted.

MF Christian Eriksen, 6 - Struggled to impose himself on the game, with his contribution limited to flickering cameos. The back-line did a great job of intercepting ground passes and obstructing several crosses on the wings, but Newcastle's marking in the penalty area was extremely poor. Was always alert and lost his marker to head home Spurs' victor.

And speaking about Harry Kane, the Argentine was quick to rush to the defence of his star man after he appeared to go missing for spells of the game.

The Brazilian was the most important signing made by Newcastle during the summer.

The one disappointment will be his poor first touch when he was played through on goal in the second-half. Despite the rumours of a move during the transfer window, he looks committed to the cause.

Spurs failed to do so, and could in turn be looking at another season of falling short in their pursuit of a first Premier League title.
