Spurs beat Fulham 3-1 at Wembley, with Harry Kane scoring his first Premier League goal in August.

For all his prodigious goalscoring feats, the England forward had never scored in the month of August, despite 14 previous games and 46 shots, until the 77th minute against Fulham.

Chelsea's second successive win under new boss Sarri lifted them to the top of the Premier League with a 100 percent record, while Arsenal remain without a point under their new manager Unai Emery after back-to-back losses.

Tottenham could have been two goals ahead with only eight minutes gone as Moura wasted two great opportunities.

He said: "We find problems which are normal through the game, Spurs compete well and press us strong and we didn't find, especially in first 45 minutes, to combat and at the end they score this psychological goal in a complicated moment for us and we start second half well".

We'll have all the goals from Spurs' continued temporary home, as well as the latest from West Ham vs Bournemouth, Everton vs Southampton and Leicester vs Wolves.

The 46-year-old feels his side could have been more clincal in the first-half and put the game out of sight instead of letting the Cottagers back into the match.

Lucas had already missed with a close-range header and a one-on-one with keeper Fabri which ended with him fouling the Fulham man so Kane's follow-up goal was ruled out.

Wayne Routledge achieved the feat in the space of just 16 goals for Swansea, having not scored in his first six top-flight campaigns.

He said: "This one was a bit further out than the one in Moscow".

With Heung-Ming Son away on worldwide duty for South Korea at the Asian games, Moura is effectively doing what he was signed for - providing depth and filling in for an unavailable starter whilst undoubtedly looking to usurp Son's position in the first-team, or at least give Pochettino something to think about before the South-Korean international's return.

Tottenham admit they now can not say when their new stadium will be ready, although a run of having lost just two of their last 39 home league games suggests they are not finding their lack of a permanent home too troubling. Danny Ings pulled a goal back for the Saints in the 54th minute but the hosts held on for victory.

This brought Schneiderlin's first Premier League assist since April 2015 when he set up Graziano Pelle for Southampton in a 2-0 win over Hull City. Callum Wilson, after a mazy dribble, and Steve Cook replied for Bournemouth, which has maximum points after defeating promoted side Cardiff last week.
