Spurs v Liverpool moved to Wembley

0shares

Nine of Spurs' players reached the final four in Russian Federation and only returned to training on Monday - just five days before the opening fixture at St James' Park.

The situation at Spurs was not helped by the fact that they are the first club in the Premier League era not to make a single signing since the introduction of the pre-season transfer window in 2003.

But what else did we learn from a gripping contest?

"Every season since I've been here I feel as though we've improved, but we want to start winning things", he said.

That plan changed this year when Tottenham made a short-term arrangement with Wembley to host an early home fixture, the match against Fulham this weekend.

Yes, Spurs didn't make a breakthrough until the 61st minute after Jonjo Shelvey's costly red card.

The action was taken as Spurs attempt to keep up with an ambitious construction plan for their new 62,000-capacity stadium.

There was a lot of speculation regarding the future of Matt Ritchie over the summer.

Fellow semi-finalist Jan Vertonghen and World Cup victor Hugo Lloris also make an appearance as Pochettino opts against easing some of his star men back into action.

The visitors took an eighth-minute lead when Christian Eriksen's corner was headed toward goal by Davinson Sanchez, allowing Vertonghen head the ball over the line before Martin Dubravka in the Newcastle goal was able to claw the ball back.

The one disappointment will be his poor first touch when he was played through on goal in the second-half. It's so long, the season.

Last season, Newcastle's success was built on a strong back four.

Substitute Rondon nearly snatched a point five minutes from time when his shot hit Vertonghen and looped over Lloris, only for the ball to come back off the crossbar.

Jurgen Klopp strengthened significantly, especially in central midfield, an area where Spurs need legs.

Lucas Moura and Kane's England team-mate Eric Dier were substituted after the break but Pochettino allayed any injury fears.

Dele Alli grabbed what turned out to be the victor as Spurs proved that no new signings might not be a problem for them this season. The binary nature of top-flight football means defeat would have doubtless been put down to the transfer timidity and prompted yet even more heated debate.
