Not for the first time, Eriksen was the man who unlocked the door.
Dummett limped off with what looked like a hamstring injury at St James's Park.
Tottenham immediately took charge of the match and Alli slid in at the far post to steer in a cross from Christian Eriksen in the 61st minute. The tackle on the later was particularly rash, as Harry Kane was duly booked for a conventional, poorly timed, striker's challenge.
Jacob Murphy and Mikel Merino are named among the substitutes on the bench, but could make their debuts for Newcastle.
However, the game turned three minutes into the second half when Shelvey, having tried to grab the ball from a prone Alli to take a quick free kick in front of the Newcastle penalty area, made a decision to reward the England midfielder's efforts to hold onto the ball with a step on the ankle, directly in front of refereeAndre Marriner.
Kane struck the woodwork late on having gone one-on-one with Elliot, as his run of failing to score in August went one game longer. He then scored a great goal.
Sissoko was taken off after 57 minutes, a tactical swap for Son Heung-min, and within three minutes Spurs took the lead.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has come under pressure to add some new players to a squad that finished second to Chelsea last season and has lost right back Kyle Walker, who moved to Manchester City. He eclipsed Pogba a year ago.
Pochettino said last week that Walker-Peters was not ready to play in the Premier League but he claimed he had been bluffing to avoid putting pressure on the youngster.
