Do Newcastle Fans actually need to worry about Premier League relegation?

  • Do Newcastle Fans actually need to worry about Premier League relegation?

Rafa Benitez, who guided Newcastle to a mid-table last season, said his side were unlucky to take nothing from the game but showed enough against one of the league's top sides to suggest they should be competitive again this season.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said some players, including Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose, were distracted by transfer speculation over the summer.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said: "We know this will be disappointing but at the start of the project we asked for your support during what we knew would be a complex and challenging build and now we ask for your continued patience and forbearance". We've got a fantastic squad here, fantastic players throughout the team in every position.

"We want to help the team go as far as we can, so we want to be playing. All we can do is keep working, keep improving".

World Cup winning goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is looking to bring "positive energy" to Tottenham this season and believes that his English and Belgian team-mates will be even hungrier for success following their near misses in Russian Federation.

Mauricio Pochettino said in the build-up to the match that some of his players have been distracted by transfer speculation - and a few of his squad members could yet move overseas this month.


"Our targets are always in the same level of Real Madrid or Manchester United or Manchester City, but for different circumstances we can not achieve that".

Pochettino started five players who featured in the semi-finals in Russian Federation last month and who resumed training less than a week ago.

"But I think with all the circumstances and how we prepared for the game with a lot of players only training from Monday (August 6), I think we can say it was a brilliant effort".

Though the National Football League has held at least one game a year in London for a decade, this is the first time that the Seahawks are playing in England.

Nine of Tottenham Hotspur's squad only returned to the training ground a few days before the Saturday clash at St James' Park due to their World Cup success. You have to stay switched on and we're happy we got the three points. You can look at all the other teams around us - they might have signed players, but not many of those players that they've signed are better than the players they've already got. I am not going to complain.
