Mauricio Pochettino: 'Tottenham Hotspur should have won by three goals'

Rafa Benitez brought on Jamaal Lascelles and Chancel Mbemba as replacements for the two defenders. But Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey was sent off just three minutes from the beginning of the second half after a clash with Tottenham's Dele Alli to give advantage to the tourists.

Elsewhere, Kyle Walker-Peters comes into the team at right-back, following his namesake Kyle Walker's transfer to Manchester City and an injury suffered by Kieran Trippier.

The Spurs attacker then put his side ahead with a close-range finish before Ben Davies finished off a neat move for Tottenham's second.

A deflection off Matt Ritchie saw Eriksen's pass loop up for the unmarked Kane inside the box, but Elliot stayed big and blocked his powerful strike in the 51st minute.

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.

- Tottenham has won 29 of its last 31 Premier League games against newly promoted sides, drawing the other two.

"I think it's worse because I had to change one player and Dele Alli has nothing", Benitez said. It was a clear red card [for Shelvey].

In the hope of gaining a positive result, the Spaniard has handed debuts to a couple of his summer signings as Javier Manquillo and Florian Lejeune start in defence, while Christian Atsu makes his bow after completing a permanent move earlier in the summer.
