Alli and Davies give Spurs 2-0 win at 10-man Newcastle

Transfer rebels seem to be commonplace in this day and age and they can disrupt a team

I've been pulled up for my temper before but today we had to keep our cool.

"I've had a few talks with the gaffer [Mauricio Pochettino] and a couple of people", Alli said.

The Magpies kept it tight in the first half, but moment of madness of Jonjo Shelvey saw Newcastle reduced to 10-men after the break. "They didn't make it easy for us and it's a hard place to come".

"It was a game where we had to keep our cool, we didn't want to get too heated up and get brought into what they wanted us to do, which was make it more of a physical game and a battle than a game of football". There was no need to react today. He's a great player and I'm sure he's going to be disappointed.

The England worldwide who scored in the 2-0 win says it was important to not react and keep the team going.

There was nothing to be gained from standing on Alli, and Shelvey's action left his team in a tight spot, souring their first game back in the top flight.

Fittingly, it was Alli who opened the scoring with a clinical finish from Christian Eriksen's sublime pass before Ben Davies wrapped up the points.

"The sending off changed everything".

Manager Rafa Benitez was then forced to make two changes as Paul Dummett and Florian Lejeune were forced off with injuries.

"Hopefully he [Shelvey] will learn from that".

"He knows that he had made a mistake, he apologised, but still we lost the game".
