Newcastle United 0-0 Tottenham

Referee Andre Marriner shows a red card to Jonjo Shelvey of Newcastle United as Robert Elliot of Newcastle United reacts during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and

Jonjo Shelvey was slammed by Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer after receiving a straight red card for stamping on Tottenham star Dele Alli.

The Magpies were forced into early chances in a goalless first half with Paul Dummett and Florian Lejeune coming off.

However, injuries to both Paul Dummett and Florian Lejeune, as well as the utterly stupid red card shown to Jonjo Shelvey made the Magpies' task an nearly impossible one and Tottenham duly ran out winners.

In contrast, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino left Tyneside having seen a satisfactory performance from his men, who were eventually rewarded for their patience. The Dane's pass by met by an on rushing Alli who slotted past Rob Elliot.


Harry Kane, last season's Golden Boot victor, could have added more gloss but struck the post late on and his wait for a Premier League goal in August continues.

The England worldwide was involved in Tottenham's second as his flick was guided into the path of Davies by Eriksen, the left-back finishing a slick move with a cool finish. Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli support Harry Kane.

Tottenham team to play Newcastle United: Lloris, Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Sissoko, Eriksen, Ali, Kane.

Benitez had admitted in the run-up to the game that his players would have to battle for their lives throughout the entire campaign, and they did just that before Shelvey's premature exit.
