Match Commentary

- Tottenham, though, will feel hard done-by. Their lack of a top striker was clear and Modric was missed, but there were encouraging signs there for Villas-Boas.
90' FULL-TIME: Newcastle 2-1 Toottenham - Alan Pardew takes the spoils on the opening day, as goals from Demba Ba and Hatem Ben Arfa help the Magpies to a win.
90' Van der Vaart crosses well and there are two players over at the back post, but Krul bravely punches clear.
