Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli were on target as Tottenham Hotspur began their Premier League campaign with an entertaining 2-1 victory over Newcastle United Saturday.All three goals came in a frantic opening 20 minutes on Tyneside with Vertonghen and Alli heading goals for the north London team, who finished third last season, either side of Joselu's equaliser.Spurs, whose starting 11 contained many players who were involved in the latter stages of the World Cup, faded and were relieved to hold on for victory following Vertonghen's crucial 85th-minute block to deny Rondon.Newcastle, who finished safely in mid-table last season, 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.
