Sissoko & Walker-Peters start for Spurs vs Newcastle

Tottenham Hotspur got their 2017/18 campaign off to a flawless start, beating newly promoted Newcastle United 2-0 at St James Park on Sunday.

It was the kind of incident that has often provoked a furious response from Alli and landed him in trouble in the past.

Tottenham looked to assert their Premier League authority onto the game early on, using their physicality to bully Newcastle, going tough in the tackle, all the while, controlling the tempo of the game easily.

He added: "The most important thing is to make sure we keep basically the same group of players". I've been caught out a couple of times for my temper but it's something I like to keep to my game.

"I've had a few talks with the gaffer in the past [about my temperament]". There was no need to react today. "It happens sometimes", Alli said of his clash with Shelvey. "We kept the ball moving, which was hard at times, but I don't want to talk about it too much".

The midfielder trod on Alli's foot right in front of referee Andre Marriner, a decision that ultimately cost his side the game as Spurs then took complete charge and ran out easy winners.

Just 13 minutes after the red card Eriksen picked out Alli's burst into the penalty area with a clipped ball and, at full stretch, the former MK Dons trainee guided the ball past Rob Elliot. "The sending off changed everything".

Spurs finished as runners-up last term and will be keen to make a statement of their intent to again challenge by seeing off Rafael Benitez's men. "Hopefully he will learn from it".
