Tottenham capitalized on Jonjo Shelvey's senseless sending-off to beat Newcastle 2-0 in the Premier League on Sunday, with Dele Alli and Ben Davies scoring in the final half-hour. Newcastle were playing the counter attack well, until Shelvey stamped on Alli right in front of the referee.

"Dele was calm, it was important because if you remember last season we talked about that, how we need to behave, improve and learn".

"He's mature enough now to accept sometimes what happens on the pitch, but he is so calm, he is so fearless".

The Citizens then padded their lead when Brighton's Lewis Dunk scored an own-goal just five minutes later. "I've been caught out a couple of times with my temper".

Newcastle winger Christian Atsu said after the match that Shelvey has apologised to his team-mates for his red card. "We kept the ball moving, which was hard at times, but I don't want to talk about it too much".
