  1. 'We deserved more'

    Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

    Newcastle United

    Speaking to BBC Sport, Rafa Benitez said: "I think we deserved more. The team worked hard against a very good side. We conceded and reacted well, and then went a goal behind again and showed good fight."

    Asked about his team selection, Benitez added: "We had to give something to the players that have been training for one month so it was right thing to do. Now we have more time, and everybody has to fight for their place. You cannot complain about Joselu's work rate, and he got a goal which helped the team. We tried to change something and then we had a chance when Rondon hit the crossbar, but you can see the new players will need some time to settle and understand their teammates."

    On DeAndre Yedlin's late substitution: "It is too early to know what has happened to Yedlin and we will have to assess that. The squad is a little bit better than last season, but it depends on the new additions to improve the starting XI, and if they can, then we will have a better team."

  3. 'I am a happy man with goal line technology'

    Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Speaking to Sky Sports, Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen on his goal, he said: " I deserved it and I was happy it went in. Since I have been here they have taken a few goals from me, but I'm a happy man with goal line technology today. Hopefully I can score a couple more, maybe more than Dele."

  4. Post update

    Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Mauricio Pochettino speaking to BBC Sport: "To connect everything and start to mould the machine again was a massive challenge for everyone.

    "The effort from the players was massive, it is not easy to provide them a good holiday and rest."

  5. 'Alli has been strong and focused'

    Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Asked about Dele Alli's contribution, Pochettino added: "I am happy in the way the players arrived after the holidays, and Dele was one of them. He has been strong and focused and he has shown good quality today.

    "It is important to be strong from the beginning and have belief and convey a positive message. The staff and the players need to stay together and the most important thing is the fans in a difficult time because we are going to move to a new stadium. In our last season at White Hart Lane we played without a corner and then we moved to Wembley and it is important the fans know the players need their help."

    Asked when they will hit their potential, Pochettino said: "Everybody is different, one player may be ready in two weeks another may take a month. We are trying to help them all improve but football is about the squad, and with so many players, it is important that everybody is playing under one objective."

  6. 'I am proud of my players in the circumstances'

    Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Speaking to Sky Sports, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "I am so proud of the performance in the circumstances. Newcastle are a very good team and they had some chances to score more than one, but sometimes in football you need some luck as well as effort. With all of the circumstances, we prepared for the game with a lot of players that only started training on Monday.

    "We can do better, of course, and be more consistent but it was a massive challenge to connect everything and prepare in the few days we had. I am not going to complain and we have to learn to be clever. It is a massive challenge to work together again."

  7. 'We deserved a draw'

    Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez speaking to Sky Sports: "We deserved at least a draw, we were fighting until the end and had chances in the second-half.

    "You could feel fans had the belief we could do something.

    "There were a lot of positives to see the team fighting. We made some mistakes and you have to give credit to the other team. We reacted well and never gave up."

    On Yedlin's injury: "We have to wait and doctor has to assess the injury"

    David: Can take so many positives from Newcastle performance today. Hit the woodwork twice and outplayed a strong Spurs side at time. In Rafa we trust

    Bethany: Finally some exciting football for us this season I hope. Rondon and Shelvey could be a perfect pairing.

  9. 'We are all fighting for each other'

    Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Speaking to Sky Sports, Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli said: "I think it was important to start with three points. It's a long season and we have got to improve but it was a positive start. Last season I scored against Newcastle away and I want to keep improving as a player and as a squad."

    Asked about his involvement at the World Cup, Alli added: "It was a great experience, when you're there you're in your own bubble concentrating on the games, and you don't realise how big it is for the country. But since then it has been important to focus on the Premier League again, and make sure I was ready for today. We knew our jobs and we have been playing together for a while. We are all out there fighting and working for each other."

  10. 'We can take lots of positives'

    Newcastle 1-2 Tottenham

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles speaking to Sly Sports: "We can take a lot of positives from that game, we went toe to toe with them, we feel hard done by.

    "When we look back at the goals we can see how we could have stopped them, on the other hand, going forward we were excellent and created chances. We just need to be more ruthless."

    Rachel: Solid start from Spurs - so many first team regulars still playing catch-up from a wonderful World Cup, so three points are very welcome!

    Maybe Newcastle deserved a draw. It was not the best of Tottenham today, talk of them being tired and they did look tired.

    It will be a hard season for Newcastle but they have a good spirit, great manager. Scoring might be a problem.

    Tottenham will get better as the weeks go on.
