Moussa Sissoko Plays - Tottenham Hotspur Team vs Newcastle United Confirmed

Moussa Sissoko Plays - Tottenham Hotspur Team vs Newcastle United Confirmed

The Dane shot across the face of goal with 27 minutes gone after Spurs had broken from a Newcastle corner, and he tested goalkeeper Rob Elliot with a dipping volley four minutes before the break.

Spurs lacked ingenuity and Kane was shown a yellow card for scything down Lejeune in a tackle that brought the Frenchman's outing to an early end.

The game suddenly burst into life, with Gayle forcing Hugo Lloris into a save at his near post, but Newcastle's positive response soon fizzled out.

With Victor Wanyama and Heung-min Son only fit enough for the bench, Pochettino was forced to field Eric Dier in midfield and turn once again to Moussa Sissoko in attack.

Alli lost Lascelles inside the box and guided a lovely ball from the right courtesy of Eriksen across Elliot and into the net.

With 20 minutes left, Ben Davies was found by Eriksen with the Welshman scoring the second goal of the game.

The Toon midfielder was given his marching orders in the second half of the Premier League clash on Sunday after leaving one on Alli, causing widespread confusion over his weird decision.

Newcastle's cause wasn't helped by losing defenders Paul Dummett and Florian Lejeune - the 200th French player to feature in a Premier League game - to injury in the first half. The Magpies are back in the Premier League after one season in the Championship and Rafa Benitez can look to emulate what Huddersfield did yesterday by recording a victory over a London based team.
