Kane ends goal drought as he scores for Tottenham Spurs

Jose Mourinho

There are four 3pm kick-offs this afternoon including the clash between Tottenham and Fulham at Wembley.

However, former Arsenal midfielder Merson doesn't share his optimism as the Sky Sports pundit has backed Chelsea to edge this weekend's huge game in west London 2-1.

Harry Kane finally ended his August goalscoring drought as England's World Cup luminaries inspired Tottenham Hotspur to a morale-boosting 3-1 Premier League win over newcomers Fulham on Saturday.

After becoming the first Premier League side since the introduction of the summer transfer window to fail to sign a player, Spurs were dealt another blow off the field in midweek with the news their new 62,000-capacity stadium won't be ready until at least October.

Spurs' first-half dominance was rewarded by Lucas Moura's clinical 43rd minute strike, his first league goal.

Tottenham had a glut of stars feature in the latter stages of the World Cup and as such Mauricio Pochettino has been forced to undertake pre-season without a number of his main men.

But Spurs regained their lead when Kieran Trippier converted a sumptuous free-kick from 25 yards in the 74th minute and just three minutes later Kane scored a third for Tottenham, breaking his 14-game barren run in the month of August. I think it's a situation that we need to improve.

"I was a little bit disappointed because we conceded chances, with a different set-up and players", he said.

"The second goal showed the quality they have".

Instead, boss Manuel Pellegrini has drafted in Pablo Zabaleta, Robert Snodgrass and Javier Hernandez, who starts in attack alongside Marko Arnautovic.

The home side closed out the game without any more hiccups and maintained their 100 per cent start to their league campaign.

Arsenal head to Stamford Bridge for the 5.30pm kick off looking to bounce back following their 2-0 defeat to Manchester City last Sunday but Unai Emery saw enough positive signs to give him confidence the north Londoners can get a positive result today.

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

Cardiff and Newcastle both registered their first point of the season in a drab 0-0 draw in the Welsh capital in a missed opportunity for both sides.

"That is what we want from the players that are outside, being focused when the manager or team needs them to be available to do".
