West Ham vs Tottenham

Tottenham will head into this London clash without Victor Wanyama, Erik Lamela and Danny Rose as they aim to win their opening three away matches of a EPL season for the first time. Key to their hopes will be Harry Kane, who has scored five goals in his last five appearances against the Hammers. Overall, he has netted 19 goals in 28 EPL London derbies for Spurs. West Ham simply love playing Spurs, having beaten them 14 times in the league, their highest tally of wins against a single opponent. They will be boosted by the return of the charismatic Mark Noble, but Manuel Lanzini remains out.

Match Stats:

  • West Ham 2-3 Tottenham
  • Shots: 10-15
  • Possession: 49%-51%
  • Corner kicks: 4-3

Harry Kane scored twice as Tottenham Hotspur held off a West Ham United comeback to win 3-2 and maintain their perfect away record in the Premier League this season.

The Spurs striker headed in Dele Alli's cross and then slotted in after Alli's shot was saved, as Spurs went 2-0 up late in the first half.

Moments after Kane's free-kick came back off the post, Christian Eriksen volleyed in to put the visitors 3-0 up on the hour.

Chicharito pulled one back from close range before Serge Aurier was sent off for a second bookable offence and Cheikhou Kouyate's thumping 87th-minute header set up a tense finish.
