Dele Alli, Ben Davies score as Tottenham beat Newcastle

Arsenal's French manager Arsene Wenger and Arsenal legend Martin Keown on the touchline during the Charity football match between Arsenal Legends and Milan Glorie at The Emirates

The Magpies, promoted as winners of the Championship last term, had captain Jonjo Shelvey sent off early in the second half for standing on Dele Alli.

The Tottenham manager praised Alli, whose temperament has previously been question, for keeping his cool following the coming together with Shelvey.

"He knows that he had made a mistake, he apologised, but still we lost the game". It's not an easy place to come. There was no need to react today.

"[Shelvey's red card] happens sometimes in football".

"When you have young players with a good understanding and another year of experience, they have to be better, so I don't think it will be a problem for them because they have the same manager, the same staff, the same players and more experience, so they will be even more risky". I've had a few talks with the gaffer in the past. He's a great player and I'm sure he's going to be disappointed. "It was important we stayed professional".

Benitez has stated that he is proud to have led Newcastle back to the promised land of English football and that his team will now have to make the fans proud with their endeavours on the pitch.

However, Newcastle face a real challenge in their first game back in the big time, with Tottenham last season's Premier League runners-up.

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". "Hopefully he will learn from it. But it's no excuses because we made a mistake and that's it".
