[Teams] Tottenham vs Newcastle: Confirmed Line-Ups From Wembley

Tottenham moved a point ahead of City, which plays Arsenal on Sunday, and four behind Liverpool, which visits West Ham on Monday. "'I follow Formula One and I love McLaren but it wasn't competitive last season.' Hamilton won the F1 Drivers" Championship in his Mercedes past year while Alonso came in 11th in his McLaren.

With the game approaching its final 10 minutes Spurs made another change, Danny Rose on for Lamela, and they nearly went ahead when Eriksen flicked goalwards from a corner but Ritchie cleared.

Newcastle, on the other hand, could move up to 13th.

Pochettino said Spurs had tried to find a solution to the situation with Janssen wanting to leave, and added: "Always, he behaved well".

Schar's last-ditch intervention turned out to be key for the visitors, as they managed to dig in during the final quarter of the game, but they were unable to deny Spurs from sneaking a win in the closing stages.

And it was an altogether more upbeat Pochettino that faced the media ahead of their huge clash with struggling Newcastle United on Saturday.

"We're second, and don't need to convince ourselves about our potential or capacity to win".

"Of course I'm a person and we are people that always care, and my decision straight away was to invite him in and to open the door to the first team and start to be involved and feel like another player here".

"I think we fully deserved the victory", he said.

"It's about now praising the squad, the players, to be in the position we are in the Premier League, no-one believed at the beginning of the season that this squad was capable of being there".

"We'll see, we need to assess day by day week by week, but we are happy", Pochettino finalised. That is the most important thing, it's a very good example for everyone, watching him play.

"We now have two free places - with [Georges-Kevin] Nkoudou going to Monaco and [Mousa] Dembele to China - I think he's going to be on the list", Pochettino told a news conference.

"Today, we are there because we deserve to be there".

Son won the first corner of the second half after Moura had flicked the ball to him inside a crowded penalty area, and from it Sanchez sent in a header that dropped just wide of the far post.
