#EPL : Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham: Dele Alli scores winner for visitors


Dele Alli scored a first-half winner as Tottenham Beats Newcastle 2-1 on the opening weekend of the Premier League season at St James’ Park.

Jan Vertonghen bundled the ball over the line with his head at the far post to give Spurs the lead (8) despite Martin Dubravka’s best efforts on the line, before a tale of two crosses and another two headers.

First, Matt Ritchie’s wicked ball was converted by the head of Joselu for 1-1 three minutes later, while Alli nodded in at the far post (18) from Serge Aurier’s fine delivery.
