But after a slow start at their temporary home last season, Tottenham have a good record at Wembley and picked up another three points despite being fully tested by newly-promoted Fulham.

He scored in the 77th minute, having already hit the crossbar.

Ings' past three Premier League goals have been scored under three different managers: Mark Hughes on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp last season and Brendan Rodgers in October 2015 - scoring in a 1-1 draw with Everton which would prove to be the Northern Irishman's last game in charge at Liverpool.

"I really didn't celebrate, not one goal because I think we were focused on trying to find a solution", Pochettino said.

Much had been made of Kane's previous failure to score a Premier League goal in the opening month of the season but the striker broke that curse with a precise finish to wrap up the points for Mauricio Pochettino's men.

Tottenham managed to put the controversy over their delayed move to a new home behind them and Harry Kane finally found the net in August as Fulham were beaten 3-1 on Saturday.

The England striker - a two-time Premier League Golden Boot victor - had never netted in the opening month of the season, but ended that hoodoo with the final goal 13 minutes from time - a calm side-footed finish inside the right-hand post.

Bournemouth are the only other side to so far take maximum points from their opening two games as Eddie Howe's men came from behind to win 2-1 at West Ham. However, Fulham were much improved after the break, forcing Alli and Eriksen back and finding space outside Spurs' centre-backs. "Of course every player if they don't play will be disappointed".

"We conceded too many chances".

"But it's good to start like this".

West Ham United have revealed their team and substitutes for this afternoon's Premier League meeting with Bournemouth at the London Stadium. Felipe Anderson, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez are attacking threats.

A spectacular own goal from Matt Doherty and a deflected James Maddison strike put the Foxes in command.

'I will hopefully be back for the first game and hopefully try and score in August [for the first time in the Premier League] this year, ' the forward said.

Kenedy had a penalty saved with nearly the final kick of the match as 10-man Newcastle missed a golden chance to steal three points at Cardiff.
