Newcastle United suffer unlucky defeat to Tottenham on opening day

Harry Maguire

GETTY Leicester defender Harry Maguire is being eyed by Man Utd

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.

Tottenham fans appear rather less dissatisfied, despite their club failing to make a single addition to Pochettino's squad since the end of last season.

According to Pochettino, Brexit has added another 30 per cent on to the cost of building their state-of-the-art new stadium, which will host it's first official game next month.

"I'm really pleased to be part of the winning team at the World Cup, but you could say the England and Belgium players have got back with more hunger because they were so close to the final and the most important trophy of their careers", Lloris said.

"It's a position I like to get in", Alli said. It's up to the manager or the chairman if they decide to bring someone else in but we enjoy playing together and we're happy with the philosophy of how we want to play here. "But what happens with Harry is that he can not score three goals in every game", Pochettino added.

Former Brazil striker Ronaldo hospitalised with pneumonia in Spain
Ronaldo finished his career with an impressive 414 goals, 62 of which came in just 98 appearances for the Brazilian national side. According to reports , Ronaldo , who was on holiday in Ibiza , remains in intensive care and but has been "evolving favourably".

Liverpool v West Ham: Mane can get Reds up and running
The Egypt forward scored 44 times in his first season at Liverpool and took only 19 minutes to get off the mark at Anfield . On the trip to America, he scored penalties against City and United so that's another potential boost too.

Ronaldo set to begin Italian adventure in intimate alpine friendly
Ronaldo proved good value for the hype, scoring in the 10th minute with a neat finish after breaking a loose offside trap and closing in on goal completely unmarked.

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

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.

Our next game is away to Cardiff City, a fixture I'd like to think we could get something from before we then have three consecutive games against the big boys of the Premier League, three games which will prove to be very testing.

A gutsy second half display saw Kenedy waste a one on one and the Spurs woodwork struck twice, so maybe a deserved point went astray. You know me. It's not because they were at the World Cup that they are going to play in the team.

"Newcastle showed a lot of energy and great quality and it was a hard opening for us".
