Dele Alli: 'Important for Tottenham Hotspur to stay professional'

Dele Alli warned Premier League provocateurs he won't be losing his cool this season after the Tottenham star kept his temper in check following Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey's stamp.

Newcastle United lost 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. That was important. Remember last season we talked a lot about that.

"All I'll say is the rules are the rules and we made a mistake".

Tottenham looked to assert their Premier League authority onto the game early on, using their physicality to bully Newcastle, going tough in the tackle, all the while, controlling the tempo of the game easily.

Video shows babysitters putting infant in refrigerator
The footage appeared to show a babysitter laying the infant sideways on a shelf, saying "bye" - and then closing the door. The video apparently shows one of the girls opening the refrigerator to show a screaming baby inside.

"He is so mature now and accepts what can happen on the pitch". Even though it was a bad feeling at the time, in the long run I think that day helped us. He's so calm, so courageous.

They actually nearly scored from the next move of the game, as Gayle forced a save from Hugo Lloris in the Spurs goal, but over the next 10 minutes the visitors ratcheted up the tension, with Alli drawing another tackle which could also have seen a red card for Matt Ritchie, although the winger escaped with only a yellow card. "Needs to improve. Not in his best expression, but he is coming". The England global is yet to score a Premier League goal in the month of August since his Spurs debut. Bit nervy - nerves are good though.

Rafa Benitez has managed at the top of European football and I'm sure he doesn't have plans to stay in the Premier League by the skin of his teeth following promotion.
