Victor Wanyama entered the fray as second half change to help Tottenham Hotspur to a Premier League winning start in a 2-0 win over Newcastle United at St James' Park this Sunday 12 August.

A tame first half that was characterised with the Magpies' sturdy defense line had the clash going down among the few games to see a barren scoreline at half time.

Shelvey dismissed

Proceedings took a strange turn just minutes in to the second half after Jonjo Shelvey got his marching orders for a stumping Dele Ali.

Its forward who led Spurs reaction to the numerical advantage sweeing home a Christian Eriksen's 61st minute delivery before Ben Davies finished off a brilliant team move between the pair involved in the first goal, nine minutes later.

Kane off the bar

Harry Kane, who endured a rather torrid time against Newcastle defenders in his bid to end his wait for a maiden league goal scored in August, had late chance to sea a third but his strike came off the upright.

The win sealed a fitting revenge for Spurs  who avenged the 5-1 demolition suffered two season ago in the leagues finale.
