Newcastle played their first game after earning promotion from the Championship while Tottenham went into the game looking to start the season on a high note.

The match looked like a typical season opener with both sides not giving too much away but a moment of madness from Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey in the 48th minute led to a comfortable win for Tottenham.

The English midfielder stamped on Dele Alli’s leg and was given his marching orders by Andre Marriner. Alli then opened the scoring 13 minutes later before Ben Davies added a second within 10 minutes.

Here are the three best players from the match and the three worst.

A fantastic debut for the young English right-back who filled the hole left by Kyle Walker perfectly. With a similar name to the departed full-back, his playing style was almost identical. It was an auspicious start for the Tottenham youngster as he kept the attacking talents of Ayoze Perez and Matt Ritchie at bay while helping out in the attack on several occasions.
