Mauricio was delighted to put things right at St James' Park this afternoon.

Alli was booed as he made way for Victor Wanyama in the 82nd minute and Kane was unable to rub salt into Newcastle's wounds when his fierce strike cannoned back off the upright in stoppage time, meaning his August Premier League drought extends to 11 games, but Shelvey's moment of madness had already proved the Magpies' undoing.

It did not take too long for the visitors to make the required breakthrough, as Eriksen picked out Alli with a memorable ball in behind the defence, leaving the playmaker to break free and prod beyond Elliot.

Not what you want when you've just been promoted to the Premier League.

Newcastle could well hand debuts to a number of summer signings, with Javi Manquillo, Mikel Merino, Jacob Murphy and Florian Lejeune in consideration to feature.

"The team is ready", Atsu, who lasted the entire duration, told his club's official website after the game.

"Every single game we had 52,000 fans a year ago, and the away support was wonderful, so we have everything".
