Pochettino pledges to protect Kane


However, Kane, determined to end his August goal-drought this weekend, was visibly relieved after firing in the 76th minute past Fulham goalkeeper Fabri at Wembley to make it 3-1 to Spurs. A big game like that would have certainly done wonders for his confidence, but the one goal he managed to get won't hurt at all. We started the second half well and scored, but to be honest, they changed shape to a diamond and we did not have enough power to stop them. The Brighton fixture looks like a winnable game, given Fulham's talent level and the way they've played over the last two weeks.

Fulham's first game of the 2018/19 season ended in a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace and Pochettino insists that the newcomers might find it hard at the very beginning.

Tottenham Hotspur didn't sign any new players this summer, because the stadium renovation processes are going on. "My Prediction is Tottenham 3, Fulham 1".

"In the important moments Spurs showed great quality".

Lucas Moura opened the scoring for Spurs near the end of the first half with a handsome left footed strike.

Marko Arnautovic's penalty gave the hosts a half-time lead. "All people here need to feel they can be part of the team, and help the team any time the manager commands". Tottenham had several chances but were unable to capitalize, even though their buildup play was very good.

Kieran Trippier has a big season with Tottenham Hotspur ahead of him, following his World Cup heroics.

Pochettino was able to introduce Harry Winks for his first top-flight appearance since December during the final minutes, and it capped a rewarding afternoon for Spurs who next travel to Manchester United.

Kenedy stepped up for virtually the last kick of the game and had his tame attempt kept out by Etheridge, who also saved Callum Wilson's spot-kick a week earlier during Cardiff's opening-day defeat to Bournemouth.
