Tottenham Hotspur Striker Harry Kane In ''Best Form'' Claims Boss Mauricio Pochettino

For all of the positives, it has to be said that Harry Kane again flattered to deceive in a match in August. Serge Aurier did not feature in the World Cup and played pre-season with Spurs.

"I told you [the other day] that numerous players returned in a good condition", Pochettino said. "Some people make a drama in football and drama for me is another thing", Pochettino said. We feel so proud about that.

Lucas Moura (6/10): Another disappointing outing from the former PSG starlet, who is still yet to sort his feet out in the English Premier League.

"So many goals I have "scored" have been taken away from me".

"You need to respect all the opinions but of course we are a club that our decision was not to sign, (even though) it is the fashion to sign or because we are the only club in Europe that has not signed players".

7 - Mauricio Pochettino would probably have preferred to give more of his Russian Federation 2018 players longer to get fit before throwing them into a competitive fixture but, given the lack of options and need for Spurs to make a strong start to the season, his hands were tied.

FW Harry Kane, 6 - You can not fault his willingness; even when Kane is playing poorly, he never goes missing. He's in his best form. He worked a lot for the team. Be sure that he is going to score.

Salomon Rondon came agonisingly close to a dream debut goal to level the scores but he was denied by the crossbar, as Tottenham held on to secure an opening day league victory over Rafa Benitez's side for the second consecutive season.

After claiming he had up to 28 players to choose from, Pochettino was frank about his selection policy as several members appeared to miss out.

In fact, he made the most number of defensive actions than any other player in the game with five tackles, three interceptions and ten clearances.

"I think it was very good competition today, with a big squad".

"We've managed to sort the off-field stuff; now that's out of the way, we don't have any reason why we can't go out and put on a good performance", he told the club's website. The St. James' Park will be the hosting ground as Spurs will be hoping to claim all three points against Newcastle United. All the players who want to stay in Tottenham, they need to show their commitment, and their commitment until the end is not one week, two weeks, one month.
