Nightmare start for Newcastle after Captain Shelvey red card

Georginio Wijnaldum of Newcastle United celebrates scoring his team's first goal with his team mates Aleksandar Mitrovic and Moussa Sissoko during the Barclays Premier League

Newcastle performed well in the first half, keeping the Premier League runners-up at bay, but then their star player Jonjo Shelvey was sent off after stamping on Spurs attacker Dele Alli just after the second half began. We need more competition between us. "It's more unsafe. We lost one player from that", Benitez told BBC Sport.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez questioned whether that was more risky than Harry Kane's scissor tackle on Florian Lejeune, which resulted in the debutant being withdrawn through injury and was only met with a booking.

Mauricio Pochettino praised Alli's maturity after the midfielder was on the receiving end of some tough tackling from Newcastle, including a lunge from Matt Ritchie that earned him a yellow card, and was booed by Newcastle fans when he was substituted with 10 minutes remaining.

"No I think it's different. With the ball in the middle sometimes you can see, but without the ball or in another side it's completely different", he said.

Spurs started off slowly but looked assured and risky going forward after Shelvey's game-turning dismissal.

"He was calm. That is important".

However, it must be pointed out that Spurs have been in fine form over the past two seasons and it will take a lot for them not to be at least challenging for a top four place.

Pochettino said last week that Walker-Peters was not ready to play in the Premier League but he claimed he had been bluffing to avoid putting pressure on the youngster.

"He's mature enough now to accept all that happens on the pitch".
