Dele Alli silenced the complaints about Tottenham's lack of signings as the England midfielder sealed a 2-1 win at Newcastle in their Premier League opener on Saturday. The second half was back and forth with great saves and great chances for both teams.
"I told them yesterday, for me, it's like we start from zero".

Spurs regained their lead in a topsy-turvy opening, as Aurier's risky cross from deep on the right was nodded back across goal and into the corner by Alli, who scored in the 2-0 win at St James' Park on the opening day of last season.
But Tottenham lifted the gloom with a gritty victory at St James' Park thanks to first half headers from Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli.
"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together".

Not to be outdone at the other end, Lloris stood up well to block Ayoze Perez's shot.
The novelty of Kane's run without a goal in the Premier League season's opening month stretching to 14 matches will not concern Pochettino greatly.
The gong could have also been awarded to Jan Vertonghen, but it was apt that England midfielder Alli scored the victor after a busy summer.
