Dele Alli and Ben Davies strikes ensured Newcastle United's return to the Premier League was a sour one, done little favours by Jonjo Shelvey, of course.

But how did the players rate in the loss? Liam Kennedy has his say...

Newcastle XI (4-2-3-1)

Rob Elliot - Could do little about the goals. Made one outstanding stop from Kane... 7

Javier Manquillo - Gave United an attacking option down the right. Very good first outing... 7

Florian Lejeune - Afternoon was cruelly cut short by a chopping challenge by Kane. Looked slick to that point... 7

Ciaran Clark - Filled in admirably at left-back when called upon. Did the job with little fuss... 7

Paul Dummett - Did not last 10 minutes on his return to the Premier League. Injury forced an early change... N/A

Isaac Hayden - Worked hard but given a tough time physically by the Spurs midfield... 6

Jonjo Shelvey - Cost his team the game, plain and simple. What he did was inexcusable, as a result he'll get no sympathy from me... 3

Matt Ritchie - Worked hard but had little to no impact on the right... 6

Ayoze Perez - One of the more impressive performers of the XI. One or two dangerous bursts... 7

Christian Atsu - Man of the match. looks a different player so far this season. Outstanding on the left, a real threat... 8

Dwight Gayle - Didn't look anywhere near fit but, either way chances were few and far between for the striker... 6

Subs

Jamaal Lascelles (for Dummett 7) - Excellent when he came on. Will definitely start next time out... 7

Chancel Mbemba (for Lejeune 34) - Despite being made available for transfer, showed composure in the centre of defence... 7

Mikel Merino (for Gayle 75) - Thrown in to calm things down late on. Did just that... 6
