Elsewhere, Kyle Walker-Peters comes into the team at right-back, following his namesake Kyle Walker's transfer to Manchester City and an injury suffered by Kieran Trippier. For Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Danny Rose, to pull on a white jersey there is to enter the field with anything but...

Newcastle, however, ran riot and won 5-1.

Friends Remember Musician Glen Campbell
In a statement issued Tuesday night to his official Facebook, Urban paid tribute to someone he considered his "role model". Campbell used the song as the theme to his television variety show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour between 1969 and 1972.
Beyond a few speculative long-range shots by Eriksen, the game dawdled to half time with neither side seriously threatening a goal, and despite the injuries to half of his defenders, Benitez would have been happier than Spurs counterpart Mauricio Pochettino at the stalemate.
Pochettino said: "He was calm - that's important". He is so calm, is so courageous and I think then he scored, a great goal and I'm very happy.
Sissoko was taken off after 57 minutes, a tactical swap for Son Heung-min, and within three minutes Spurs took the lead. They were wonderful last year supporting the team and they will be the same this year.
Spurs came close to opening the scoring, but Kane was denied by Rob Elliot, who saved magnificently given the close proximity of the striker's effort.
