The second half came to life as Spurs took control of the game and neat interplay in midfield forced Jonjo Shelvey to go in hard on Dele Alli.
The 25-year-old, who was banned for five games last season after being accused of making racist comments towards Wolves midfielder Romain Saiss, saw red to the astonishment of his team-mates and the locals among a crowd of 52,077, although television replays suggested he had stood on Alli's ankle as the Tottenham man lay on the floor.

Harry Kane, last season's Golden Boot victor, could have added more gloss but struck the post late on and his wait for a Premier League goal in August continues.
Nine minutes later, Eriksen ran into the area but was beaten to the ball by Davies, who tucked a close-range finish under goalkeeper Rob Elliot.
However, there was nothing the Republic of Ireland global could do to keep his side level nine minutes later when Eriksen picked out Alli's run into the box and the England midfielder guided the ball home.
