'Kane's tackle was worse'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Newcastle United

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez to BBC Sport: "It was difficult from the beginning. We had to adapt things [after injuries]. The red card changed everything. I think we were defending well. We have to improve. We had our chances but we missed them."

He thought Harry Kane's foul on Florian Lejeune, which resulted in a yellow card and an injury, was worse than Jonjo Shelvey's stamp on Dele Alli, for which he was sent off.

"The Harry Kane tackle was worse than this one. It’s more dangerous. We lost one player from that. We made a mistake, but I think maybe someone has to analyse these things to see what’s more dangerous."

'Don't put pressure on him'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

More from Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino...

He explains that previous comments he made that right-back Kyle Walker-Peters wasn't ready to play were a language issue.

He clarified that he meant it would be too much pressure to expect the 20-year-old to play the whole season.

He told BBC Sport: "For a young player, don't put pressure on him. He showed in the USA that he was ready to play. It’s important to keep his feet on the grass, it’s only one Premier League game."

'3-0 would be more fair'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino to BBC Sport: "We knew how they play, so narrow and deep. It was difficult to move the ball quickly. We had control and we were helped by the red card but I think we deserved to win the game.

"It was not easy to find the space and create chances. It’s important to improve. In a stadium that doesn’t have good memories for us, it was important to win. It was a clear red card.

"If Harry Kane had scored to make it 3-0 at the end, that would have been a bit more fair."

'I don't know if I will meet Mike'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Newcastle United

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has just given a pretty terse interview to Sky Sports when asked about whether he would have a meeting with owner Mike Ashley about signing players.

"I don't know." When he was asked if it was up to Ashley whether they met, he said "yes". and then he added: "I am concentrating on my job and my players."

Benitez agreed that Jonjo Shelvey deserved his red card: "The sending off changed everything. He made a mistake. Hopefully he will learn from it. He has apologised but that changes nothing now."

Shelvey apologised for red card - Atsu

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Newcastle United

Newcastle midfielder Christian Atsu tells Sky Sports that Jonjo Shelvey has apologised to his team-mates for his red card: "It became more difficult when the red card came.

"That’s football. Mistakes do happen. He’ll learn from his mistakes. He’s upset with himself. He thinks he let the team down. We are really behind him. We believe he will come back stronger. He apologised to everyone."

'I was a bit nervy'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters told Sky Sports he learned yesterday that he would be making his Premier League debut.

"I found out yesterday in training before we worked on tactics and shape work. I was a bit nervy, nerves are good though. A few of the boys tried to tease me about it.

"Playing here, it's a fantastic stadium. Most importantly we got the three points."

'There was no need to react'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham goalscorer Dele Alli on Jonjo Shelvey’s red card for standing on him, to Sky Sports: “We knew it was going to be a physical game. It's not an easy place to come. It happens sometimes.

"I'm sure he'll be disappointed. it was important we stayed professional. I don't want to talk about it too much. I've had a few talks with the gaffer in the past [about his temperament]. I've been pulled up for my temper before but today we had to keep our cool. There was no need to react today.”

Mark Ryan: People too harsh on Newcastle. Spurs are a top team. Plenty more to play for against teams not of this calibre.

Ruz: Yes disgraceful from Alli to make Shelvey stand on his ankle and not get it out of the way fast enough. Very unsporting of him.

James O'Hara: Only question, does Benitez even make it to Xmas before he walks? He's got to be fuming right now.

'Difficult to compete at this level'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Chris Waddle

Ex-Spurs and England winger on 5 live Sport

There are just no easy games and Newcastle are going to find this. It is so difficult to compete at this level. I think they were up against it from early on Newcastle. Tottenham have dominated this football match. Newcastle's work rate you cannot fault, but it is going to be a long season.

FULL-TIME

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

No problems for Tottenham, who collect all three points.

Newcastle, though, have problems to deal with.

'Few have been less prolific'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Conor McNamara

BBC Radio 5 live commentator

Harry Kane has only ever scored twice in August, but once he gets his steam there are few that have been more prolific.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Ton up.

No.

Harry Kane's goal from close range is ruled out for offside.

He is going to have to wait until next week to bring up three figures for Tottenham.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Tottenham have the chance to go joint top of the Premier League...

but Harry Kane's low strike from inside the area from Son Heung-min's pass cannons off the foot of the post.

Kane stuck on 99 Spurs goals.

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

THREE minutes of additional play for Newcastle to endure.

Call it already, ref.

'Good engine'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Chris Waddle

Ex-Spurs and England winger on 5 live Sport

Javier Manquillo has been steady and had a bit of pace. He has got a good engine and I am sure he will get better.

Florian Lejeune looked comfortable on the ball but we did not see enough of him.

Kyle Walker-Peters looks comfortable and looks like he fits in very well with the team.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Mousa Dembele's work is done, off he comes for Harry Winks.

Is the Spurs sub the only player in the Premier League named after an emoji?

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Keep ball for Spurs now, easily seeing out the game.

Who needs signings when they can put in a performance like this?

Albeit against 10 man Newcastle, who have offered very little.

'Tottenham have pulled down the shutters'

It kind of feels like Tottenham know their work is done and they have pulled down the shutters.

Matt Ritchie swings in the free-kick...

...it falls to Ciaran Clark inside the box, but the defender's right-footed swinger is caught by Hugo Lloris on the goal line.

Either side of the Frenchman and it was rippling the onion bag.

YELLOW CARD

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Goalscorer Ben Davies goes into the referee's book for a late challenge.

Can Newcastle grab a consolation?

'Newcastle are stronger with 10'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Conor McNamara

BBC Radio 5 live commentator

Newcastle are finishing this game with 10 men, stronger than they did when they started with 11. The clock is very much counting down in Tottenham's favour now. Jonjo Shelvey was sent off at an unfortunate time. Suspension will come as well, for sure.

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Had that Christian Atsu strike gone in, it would have been a nervy final five minutes for Tottenham, but Mauricio Pochettino's side look like closing out this game with few problems.

CLOSE!

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Should have found the back of the net.

Javier Manquillo flicks on a cross to the back post for Christian Atsu, but the Ghanaian can only hit the side-netting from a couple of yards out.

'Spurs have become sloppy'

Chris Waddle

Tottenham have come off the pace and it has become sloppy. They need to get the job done properly.

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Eric Dier wants some of the spotlight.

The England international attempts a curling shot from 25 yards out, but it narrowly deflects away for a corner. That could easily have looped in.

The resulting set piece is straight into Rob Elliot's grasp.

'Spurs have been efficient'

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Conor McNamara

BBC Radio 5 live commentator

You can see the body language of all the players being so evident. They have been in Tottenham's faces but Spurs have been efficient and professional by the way they have gone about their business today.

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

The floodgates are opening opposite the Gallowgate end.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez is slumped in his chair, not much he can do apart from watch on as his side crumble in front of his eyes.

Damage limitation and they have 15 minutes remaining to hold out.

'Newcastle are in big, big trouble.'

Tottenham pretty much walked their way into the penalty area there. Newcastle are in big, big trouble.

Tottenham are stretching their leg towards the three points. Let's see if the visitors add to their lead.

GOAL - Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Ben Davies

Tottenham
BBC

Points heading to London.

It is great inter-play from Tottenham again.

Harry Kane pops a first-time pass into the path of Christian Eriksen in the box. The Dane shapes to shoot, but has the ball pinched off him by a team-mate.

It is Ben Davies who closes in to strike a low, right-footed drive into the back of the net from eight yards out.

Clinical from the Spurs full-back and this could get messy for the home side.

Newcastle 0-1 Tottenham

Can Newcastle get anything out of the game?

Down to 10 men and a goal behind.

Isaac Hayden tries to foray forward and pull a ball back into the box, but runs out of room and it goes out of play for a goal kick.

Now here is a stat for you.

Whenever Dele Alli has scored for Tottenham in the Premier League, Tottenham have never lost a game.
