He may be approaching the twilight of his career, but Louis Saha was left feeling like a teenage Roy of the Rovers after scoring twice on his full Tottenham debut.

Many expected 33-year-old Saha to be a bit-part player at most when he signed from Everton in a shock deadline day deal last month, but manager Harry Redknapp handed him his first start against Newcastle yesterday evening ahead of fans' favourite Jermain Defoe.

The former Manchester United striker did not disappoint in a hugely one-sided game that saw Spurs run out 5-0 winners. Saha took just five minutes to open his account as he poked home Emmanuel Adebayor's cross to put the home side 2-0 up after Benoit Assou-Ekotto's early opener. Saha said: "It was a great, great feeling."
