Christian Eriksen proved his class yet again as Tottenham kicked off their Premier League campaign with a 2-0 win at Newcastle United.
But Mauricio Pochettino’s men got their season underway in the perfect manner by collecting all three points at St James’ Park.
After a goalless first half, Spurs were undoubtedly helped by Jonjo Shelvey seeing red for newly-promoted Newcastle following a stamp on Dele Alli.
Alli then put Tottenham ahead before Ben Davies doubled the visitors’ lead to secure the victory.
Our favourite moment, however, came in Eriksen’s ludicrous flick late on. What a player.
