Dele Alli, Ben Davies guide Tottenham to victory at Newcastle

The Magpies were forced into early chances in a goalless first half with Paul Dummett and Florian Lejeune coming off.

The Spurs keeper shipped five goals last time he played at St James' Park - May 15, 2016 - and the 5-1 defeat cost his side second place in the table that season.

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.

Harry Kane leads the line, while Eric Dier - who has previously played at full-back - and Mousa Dembele play in central midfield.

While there hasn't been any signing made, it's believed Everton's Ross Barkley is a very possible summer arrival.

Pochettino said: "He was calm - that's important".

With the scores locked at 0-0 at the time of the red card, Spurs took full advantage of the numerical superiority and goals from Alli and Ben Davies secured all three points.

Spurs have never lost a game in which Alli has scored, and they made this game secure in the 69th minute when a handsome passing move intitiated by Mousa Dembele, then facilitated by Alli and Kane, ended with Ben Davies stroking the ball into the Newcastle net from close range.
