Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham: Shelvey sent off as Spurs win

  • Tottenham opened their 2017-18 Premier League with victory over Newcastle at St James’ Park
  • Jonjo Shelvey was sent off on the 48minute mark for a stamp on Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli
  • Tottenham broke the deadlock on the hour mark with Alli sliding in to volley home Christian Eriksen’s pass
  • Ben Davies made it 2-0 for Spurs following a slick one-two build up from Alli and Eriksen once again
