Harry Kane scores as Tottenham beat Fulham

- Tottenham beat Fulham at the Wembley Stadium

- It was their second win in the ongoing English Premier League

England captain Harry Kane finally scored his first Premier League goal in August as Tottenham reigned supreme over newly promoted Fulham.

Kane had failed to find the net in 14 previous games in the first month of the season and it looked like his barren run was going to continue as he had a goal ruled out and hit the crossbar at Wembley.

But his luck turned with 13 minutes remaining as he cleverly turned his marker inside the area before tucking the ball into the far corner for his side's third.

Lucas Moura had opened the scoring in the first half with his first Premier League goal, curling a clinical strike beyond Fabri's dive.

However, Fulham - who lost to Crystal Palace last weekend in their first game back in the top flight following promotion - levelled just after the break when Aleksandar Mitrovic nodded in from close range.

Kieran Trippier restored Tottenham's lead with a stunning free-kick that stirred memories of his strike for England against Croatia at this summer's World Cup before Kane's strike secured the points that move the hosts top of the Premier League - temporarily at least - with two wins from their opening two games.
