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

Mauricio Pochettino thought Tottenham's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace was fully deserved

The 2018/19 season will be significant for the Londoners, who will be returning to White Hart Lane after using Wembley as their home in the league last season.

"I am so proud of the performance in the circumstances", Spurs manager Pochettino told Sky Sports.

"Some players will be in the starting eleven, some will be on the bench". "As far as I can see, Tottenham are set up for another good season and just because they didn't get caught up in the mayhem on the final day doesn't spell trouble" he said. The goalkeeper made a great save and I was happy with the technology.

"He has been strong and focused and he has shown good quality today".

"To start the season as well as you can is very important and the first game is crucial to get momentum going".

That low-key approach has frustrated the majority of fans, with Pochettino and the Tottenham hierarchy coming under fire.

Spurs boss Pochettino saluted his players for refusing to be distracted and called on supporters and the squad to stay together.

"If we want to win and challenge for big things we need to all put our minds and energy into the collective and understand that the collective is the most important".

Tottenham's focus has been on strengthening from within, retaining targeted players and tying others to new contracts.

Newcastle, whose lack of striking options was one of the themes of their 2017-18, responded nearly immediately through Joselu, who found space between the Tottenham center-backs to head Matt Ritchie's excellent cross past Hugo Lloris. Tottenham regained the lead in the 18th minute from another header, this one by Dele Alli, found at the back post by Serge Aurier's cross.

"We shall continue to work with them towards making our future games at Spurs a huge success", Waller said.

Then once you look at the likes of Sels, Haidara, Mbemba, Armstrong, Toney and the two loans out (Gayle and Colback), they were all fringe/unwanted players, maybe excluding Gayle - but I feel he would be 3rd or 4th choice with Muto and Rondon now at the club.

Both sides came close in a frenzied opening to the second half, the best chances falling to Moussa Sissoko and Kenedy at either end, while Newcastle debutant Salomon Rondon saw a deflected effort hit the bar late on.

"If you are suddenly expecting Tottenham to collapse in a heap because they didn't make a signing, you are going to be mistaken".
