Rafa: 'Defeat We Could Have Avoided'

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez: "I think we did well in the first half and we had chances in the beginning of the second half. They were pushing hard, we were defending well and this goal we could've avoided.

"We have to give credit to Son because the shot was a good one and we hit the post in the second half, that was a big chance for us. You have to give credit to Tottenham because they have injuries. It was not easy for us."
