Son took a pass from Fernando Llorente in the 83rd minute, . just outside the penalty area. and blasted it low. just out of the keeper's reach.

He said: "Tottenham, we were saying a couple of years ago when they finished second that they needed to add to that squad to be serious contenders".

"It's hard when they're staying 10 players deep and trying to defend". "It's more about the strategy that we want to develop on the pitch, the capacity to be flexible and change the game and find different ways".

However, Spurs got the break they needed for another vital three points when the tireless Son's powerful effort slipped beneath Dubravka's grasp to undo all of Newcastle's good work in holding out for 83 minutes. So many things can happen, you can't even imagine. "I think it shows great character".

Despite scoring the victor against Watford during the week, Fernando Llorente had to make do with a spot on the bench as Son was preferred to lead the line in Harry Kane's absence.

It has now been more than a year since Tottenham signed a player, and Pochettino said he would like to have strengthened his squad to boost their title chances. Now if you see him, he's one of the players who is always moving on the pitch, trying to get the best position in defensive and offensive situations. I don't want someone injured, as a human, but someone has to be ready. "Newcastle was a very well organised team, playing deep and not giving us much space".

Rafa Benitez's men pulled off the shock result of all the midweek fixtures after coming back from a one-goal deficit to beat Manchester City 2-1.

Jim White believes that Spurs can win the title, though.

"It's good [that other teams have dropped points] but we don't care", he said. "We just have to keep pushing now".

Mauricio Pochettino and his wards are now occupying second position on the Premier League standings with 57 points after 25 games.

"Arsenal were no match for City on the opening day of the season and I can't see them stopping a City side who will have been wounded by their north-east reverse".

"I try to enjoy every single moment".
