As for Spurs, Kyle Walker-Peters makes his top-flight debut as he solves Pochettino’s crisis at right-back.
A deflection off Matt Ritchie saw Eriksen’s pass loop up for the unmarked Kane inside the box, but Elliot stayed big and blocked his powerful strike in the 51st minute.
If Pochettino needs to change things at St. James’ Park, he can turn to Cameron Carter-Vickers, while Victor Wanyama and Heung-Min Son are also amongst the options on the bench.
Spurs have now won 13 of their past 14 Premier League games, winning each of their past four and scoring 17 goals in the process. The Blues will be hurting after their opening-day humiliation at the hands of Burnley.
However, it would seem that the Premier League is the England Under-20 international’s favoured destination as Rafa Benitez looks to conduct business with one of his former club’s.
The referee had no other option than to issue a clear red card to the England worldwide.
Tottenham have never lost a Premier League match when Alli has scored and there was little chance of that record being broken here.
Newcastle, meanwhile, start with new signings Christian Atsu, Florian Lejeune and Javier Manquillo.
