Dummett limped off with what looked like a hamstring injury at St James's Park.

It was the kind of incident that has often provoked a furious response from Alli and landed him in trouble in the past.

"It's one of those things but he's a great player and I'm sure he's going to be disappointed", he told Sky Sports. I've been caught out a couple of times for my temper but it's something I like to keep to my game. "They didn't make it easy for us and it's a hard place to come. It happens sometimes", Alli said of his clash with Shelvey. I've had a few talks with the gaffer in the past [about his temperament]. There was no need to react today.

Dele Alli says Tottenham knew they would have to keep their cool against a Newcastle team trying to drag them into "a battle" during their opening game of the Premier League season. In a stadium that doesn't have good memories for us, it was important to win.

Spurs have never lost a game in which Alli has scored, and they made this game secure in the 69th minute when a attractive 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. Even though it was a bad feeling at the time, in the long run I think that day helped us. "The sending off changed everything".

Newcastle United haven't made enough signings in this transfer window and manager Rafael Benitez could leave if the situation persists, according former Arsenal player Paul Merson. "Hopefully he will learn from it".
