Kane Breaks August Hoodoo As Tottenham Go Top With Derby Win

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has finally broken his August hoodoo after he scored to help his North London side to a 3-1 win over Fulham at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.

Lucas Moura struck his first goal since joining from French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in January to edge the home side ahead after 43 minutes.

Aleksandar Mitrovic equalised for Fulham seven minutes after the halftime interval before two goals in three minutes from Kieran Trippier and Harry Kane secured the points for Spurs.

Kane had failed to score for Tottenham in the month of August until his goal against the newly promoted side.

The win takes Tottenham to the top of the table ahead of Bournemouth, who came from behind to beat their hosts West Ham United 2-1 and maintain their hundred percent start to the season.

In the other afternoon kickoffs, Everton and Leicester City recorded their first three points of the season.

Everton defeated Southampton 2-1 at home courtesy goals from Theo Walcott and in-form Richarlison, while Danny Ings scored what proved to be mere consolation for the Saints.

Former Premier League champions Leicester City newly promoted side saw off Wolverhampton Wanderers with ten men after star man Jamie Vardy was sent off in the second half.

An own goal from Matt Doherty and new signing James Maddison gave the Foxes a 2-0 first half lead.

Claude Puel’s side thereafter held on to the points despite the dismissal of England international striker Jamie Vardy.
