Spurs make winning start as Shelvey sees red

Newcastle performed well in the first half, keeping the Premier League runners-up at bay, but then their star player Jonjo Shelvey was sent off after stamping on Spurs attacker Dele Alli just after the second half began. "We kept the ball moving, which was hard at times, but I don't want to talk about it too much".

Fittingly, it was Alli who opened the scoring with a clinical finish from Christian Eriksen's sublime pass before Ben Davies wrapped up the points. Bit nervy - nerves are good though. "The boys tried to tease me about it".

Tottenham appeared to be struggling at St James' Park until Jonjo Shelvey was shown a straight red card by Andre Marriner for treading on the ankle of Dele Alli.

"We have ten months ahead, have four competitions and will need a lot of energy, more competition and more quality to help the team and keep the level that we want".

"But we deserved to win".

On Tuesday morning, Wikileaks' Julian Assange wrote on Twitter that the organization was offering the ex-Googler a job. He reflected on how Silicon Valley culture discourages the airing of right-leaning sentiments.

"If Harry Kane had scored to make it 3-0 at the end, that would have been a bit more fair".

With Dier potentially operating at the back, this would allow Harry Winks to start the game alongside Mousa Dembele in the boiler room. It was a clear red card.

The goal seemed to kick Spurs into action and the rise in tempo soon saw Pochettino's men double their lead, Eriksen and Alli combining again with a neat one-two which left Davies with the chance to stroke past the Newcastle keeper.

Kane almost made it three in the dying minutes when he struck a post, and then saw a goal disallowed for offside.

Now for Chelsea at Wembley next week.
