Nightmare start for Newcastle after Captain Shelvey red card

Jonjo Shelvey has been widely criticised on social media for his brainless stamp on Dele Alli which saw him sent off in Newcastle's defeat by Tottenham.

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

It will be a pleasing result for Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, who has fielded hard questions following Tottenham's absence of movement in the transfer market and the explosive comments from Danny Rose in which the left-back hit out at the way the club has been operating. The Dane's pass by met by an on rushing Alli who slotted past Rob Elliot.

The combative midfielder was trying to get the ball back quickly, Alli moved it away and Shelvey reacted by treading on Alli's ankle.


Tottenham, meanwhile, start with last season's English Premier League goal king Harry Kane as the lone man and will be backed by former Newcastle captain Moussa Sissoko, Delle Ali and Christian Eriksen.

The Toon midfielder was given his marching orders in the second half of the Premier League clash on Sunday after leaving one on Alli, causing widespread confusion over his freakish decision. The red card changed everything.

It proved a relatively disappointing day for Newcastle United upon their return to the Premier League. - Since the start of the 2015/16 season, Christian Eriksen has assisted more Premier League goals than any other player (30).
