Nightmare start for Newcastle after Captain Shelvey red card

Dele Alli has blossomed under manager Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs

The brain-fade derailed Newcastle's momentum and any chance of pulling off an upset against last years Premier League runner-ups.

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.

Tottenham immediately took charge of the match and Alli slid in at the far post to steer in a cross from Christian Eriksen in the 61st minute.

Shelvey was shown a straight red card by Andre Marriner three minutes into the second half at St James' Park for standing on Tottenham midfielder Alli's ankle while he was sat on the ground following a challenge.

Heung-Min Son, Vincent Janssen, Kevin Wimmer and Harry Winks are also substitutes.

Partial lunar eclipse set to occur on August 7, 2017
If you would like to see 100% totality, you will have to travel roughly 280 miles from Roanoke or a little under 4.5 hours. If weather is cloudy, most viewing events will provide a live NASA stream of the eclipse inside.

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.

Tottenham team to play Newcastle United: Lloris, Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Sissoko, Eriksen, Ali, Kane.

Alli was booed as he made way for Victor Wanyama in the 82nd minute and Kane was unable to rub salt into Newcastle's wounds when his fierce strike cannoned back off the upright in stoppage time, meaning his August Premier League drought extends to 11 games, but Shelvey's moment of madness had already proved the Magpies' undoing. We have a massive city behind the club.
