Christian Atsu made a substitute appearance for Newcastle United in their 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspurs in the opening day of the Premier League on Saturday.

Newcastle allowed Alli a free run at the far post to send a precise header back across Dubravka into the far corner from Serge Aurier's inviting cross, which was whipped in from the right.

Newcastle: Dubravka (7), Yedlin (6), Clark (6), Lascelles (6), Dummett (6), Diame (6), Shelvey (7), Ritchie (6), Perez (6), Kenedy (5), Joselu (6).

But for a Moussa Sissoko chance in the 56th minute, blocked by a superb reflex save by Dubravka, Mauricio Pochettino's side struggled to create chances in the second half.

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

"The World Cup was a great experience but it's all about Tottenham and the Premier League now".

Newcastle showed flashes of quality football, especially with Joselu's equalizing header in the 11th minute.

As for Newcastle, Rafael Benitez opts against including any players who did not feature for the Magpies during the second half of the last campaign.

The Denmark global delivered the resulting corner for defender Davinson Sanchez to attack. Newcastle is a hard place to come. You know me. It's not because they were at the World Cup that they are going to play in the team.

However, Pochettino insists he's not concerned by the lack of new signings as Spurs have tied key players like Harry Kane and Hueng-min Son down to long-term contracts while they've also kept hold of Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele and Toby Alderweireld.

Pochettino handed a debut to academy graduate Luke Amos, bringing him on for the "tired" Dier.

He took up a position on the left of midfield, regularly helping Ben Davies, and gained possession nine times for Spurs, more than any of his team-mates.
