Tottenham Hotspur will face off against Newcastle United at St James’ Park this afternoon.
The fixture sees two sides who had meagre summer transfer windows play one another.
Tottenham became the first club since the current transfer window system was adopted in 2003 to not sign a single player.
While Newcastle brought in a number of players on modest fees.
Despite this Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said his club “achieved their objective” and did a “great job” by keeping their best players.
Pochettino said: “I am not worried, I am not sad – I am so happy.”
He added: “We have a very good squad, we have very good players and it is not easy to add players that improve that.
“Of course we didn’t sell players and with 25 players in the squad it’s difficult to add.
“Our targets are always in the same level of Real Madrid or Manchester United or Manchester City, but for different circumstances we cannot achieve that.
“If you cannot add players who can improve your squad, the most important thing is to make sure you do not lose your best player.
“And I think that was a great job from the club to keep the best player and keep the manager.”
Tottenham did make a £25million bid for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish but were unable to get the deal over the line.
While Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez said: “Our target first has to be to survive because we did so well last year.
“The reality is that if we do what we did last year with commitment and togetherness, we can be a lot higher than 17th. How high? I don’t know yet.”
