Ben Davies finishes off lovely Tottenham team move against Newcastle

Frustrated Benitez says every game will be a challenge

"I've been caught out a couple of times with my temper". I've had a few talks with the gaffer in the past [about his temperament].

Newcastle's Shelvey was sent off early in the second half at St James' Park for stepping on Alli's ankle while the England playmaker was lying on the pitch. "It happens sometimes", Alli said of his clash with Shelvey.

The England worldwide who scored in the 2-0 win says it was important to not react and keep the team going.

"But we lost the game". Despite the sale of Kyle Walker to Manchester City, they're the only side in the top flight of English football not to make a single signing and that's raised questions as to if they can mount a title challenge this term. We had control and we were helped by the red card but I think we deserved to win the game. "We kept the ball moving, which was hard at times, but I don't want to talk about it too much".




On the game, Benitez added: "I was happy with the effort of the players".

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.

With Dier potentially operating at the back, this would allow Harry Winks to start the game alongside Mousa Dembele in the boiler room.

Rafa Benitez says Jonjo Shelvey apologised to his team-mates for his sending off. "He has apologised but that changes nothing now".
