Full Time: Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham- It was too tough for Benitez

Tottenham's goals scored by Alli (61' minutes), Davies (70' minutes). Newcastle are pushed so far back, they are almost sat in the first row of the stands.

Full Time: Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham- It was too tough for Benitez

Kyle Walker 2.0?

Newcastle 0-2 Tottenham

Kyle Walker-Peters looks like he has been playing there for a long, long time. He has played very, very well.

Final change of the game for Newcastle.

Off comes Dwight Gayle for a breather, on comes Mikel Merino, signed on loan from Borussia Dortmund.

Jamie: This Newcastle side could well come to be seen as one of the worst in Premier League history. Can't attack, can't defend, zero ambition, no grit and determination. Disgraceful.

Adam: Shelvey's idiocy is probably going to cost Huddersfield the chance to be top of the league for the whole week as well here.

'Newcastle are feeling the pace now'

I feel for Newcastle, they have defended so well, they have got 10 men and they are up against it. What can they do? You can see they are feeling the pace now

Newcastle are being pushed so far back, they are almost sat in the first row of the stands.

Spurs earn a corner which is swung in my Christian Eriksen, but the home defence are able to clear...for now.

Spurs beginning to get a stranglehold in the match.

These players know each other so well.

Barcelona-linked Christian Eriksen picks out Dele Alli in the area with a lofted ball, the Englishman attempts to volley a ball across the box towards Harry Kane, but a Newcastle man intercepts it.

MikeyBlighe: Everyone's talking like this match is a done deal. Never write the Magpies off! First match of the season, all bets are off!

Pranav Madabhushi‏: Spurs won't do well this season in England and in CL. Only Alderweireld and Kane make it into the top six's teams.

Jamaal Lascelles replaces Paul Dummett with just seven minutes gone.

Newcastle have a corner to defend...

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez: "When Newcastle went down last time, they had some good players but they did not have a team. I think this season, they do have a team.

"I think that the fans are so pleased to see the team going back to the Premier League. They are amazing last year supporting the team and they will be the same this year. We have a massive city behind the club.

"It is  a tough test against Tottenham, you are talking about one of the best teams in the division.

"We have an idea how to attack and how to defend, but football is football."
