It's taken a little while in the season opener, but Tottenham Hotspur have found their stride against Newcastle United.

Tottenham defeated Newcastle on their return to the Premier League with Jonjo Shelvey seeing red for a rough tackle on England global Dele Alli.

Alli opened his scoring account in his first game of the season, building on his career-high 18 goals from last season. Magpies Captain Jonjo Shelvey received his marching orders after stamping on Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli.

Ben Davies then added a second on 70 minutes, and in injury time, Harry Kane's low strike inside the area from Son Heung-min's pass cannoned off the foot of the Newcastle post.

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. It was hard to move the ball quickly.

"We made a mistake, but I think maybe someone has to analyse these things to see what's more unsafe". It's important to improve.

"To go to the point that it was 0-0 and the chances we had on the counter-attack against a good team, it's a pity that everything changed". It was a clear red card.

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