  • Christian Eriksen of Tottenham Hotspur celebrates scoring his sides second goal during the Pre Season Friendly match beween Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus at Wembley Stadium on August 5

Obviously, he knows that he has made a mistake and has apologised but that changes nothing now.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez questioned whether that was more unsafe than Harry Kane's scissor tackle on Florian Lejeune, which resulted in the debutant being withdrawn through injury and was only met with a booking.

Christian Atsu grew into the game for the hosts and he caused a few issues down the left, although Spurs youngster Kyle Walker-Peters provided some important pace to prevent the Ghanaian from causing too many problems.

"It's not fair to say they deserve the same punishment - Harry, Shelvey or Ritchie".

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez revealed former Liverpool midfielder Shelvey had apologised to his team-mates for the rush of blood that cost his newly promoted team their chance of a shock win.

"All the effort we put in on the pitch was lost because of one mistake". Now we have to move forward and think about solutions.

"We made a mistake, but I think maybe someone has to analyse these things to see what's more risky".

Newcastle were playing the counter attack well, until Shelvey stamped on Alli right in front of the referee.

"Yes, of course", he said.

Rafa Benitez's side had managed to keep Spurs during a tight first-half at St James Park and came out for the second half hoping to cause an upset against the team that finished second last season.

The referee had no other option than to issue a clear red card to the England worldwide.

The Citizens then padded their lead when Brighton's Lewis Dunk scored an own-goal just five minutes later.
