Tottenham Hotspur won against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his delight at his side’s win against Newcastle United this weekend.

Spurs kicked off their 2017-18 Premier League campaign with a 2-0 victory over Newcastle away from home at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon.

After a goalless first half, Dele Alli put the North London outfit ahead just past the hour mark, and Ben Davies added a second on 70 minutes.

Newcastle were reduced down to 10 men on 48 minutes due to the sending-off of midfielder Jonjo Shelvey for standing on Alli.

Sissoko started for Tottenham against his former club Newcastle and played for 58 minutes when he was substituted.

The 27-year-old France international midfielder has taken to Twitter to express his delight at Spurs picking up all three points from the encounter.

A number of other Tottenham players have also taken to Twitter to revel in the win against the Magpies.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon, visitors Tottenham had 73% of the possession, took 18 shots of which six were on target, and earned seven corners, according to BBC Sport.
