The Twitter Reaction As Harry Kane Finally Breaks His August Hoodoo

Tim Ream is absent for Fulham

West Ham, who took the lead against the Cherries but failed to hold on, have now lost their last six Premier League games in the month of August.

So prolific throughout the rest of the season, the England striker had never scored in the opening month of a league campaign but put that right on Saturday (local time) in his 15th top-flight game in August.

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

Chelsea brought Hazard off the bench midway through the second half and were rewarded when he broke free on the left and crossed for Alonso to shoot low under Petr Cech's body.

"I don't think any other players are going out at the moment".

"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".

After the game Kane jokingly posted on social media, saying: 'Wish every game could be in August!' But all three were included in the 18-man group for Saturday's 3-1 home win over Slavisa Jokanovic's Cottagers at Wembley, and only Rose did not get onto the pitch.

However, it will still not sting as bad as his previous goal against West Ham did - a controversial late equaliser on Boxing Day 2017, in which his scored amid suspicions of handball and offside. Felipe Anderson, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez are attacking threats.

Bournemouth were level on the hour through a fine individual effort from forward Callum Wilson.

The visitors played the final half-hour with 10 men after Isaac Hayden was dismissed, but still had the best chance to take all three points when Kenedy's 96th-minute penalty was saved by Neil Etheridge. He should have been sent off long before - aiming a wild kick at Victor Camarasa in the first half.

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. There weren't any. The on-loan Chelsea player did not complete a single pass in the opening 45 minutes of the match, becoming the first outfield Premier League player to do so since Blackburn's Nikola Kalinic in March 2010. The Toffees doubled their lead after 32 minutes when Richarlison headed home, but Southampton reduced the deficit Danny Ings turned the ball in following a corner but Everton held on.
