Trippier has a growing reputation as a set-piece specialist, having scored from a free kick in England's World Cup semifinal against Croatia and then repeated the feat against Fulham on Saturday.

Kane scooped the Golden Boot at Russian Federation 2018, scoring six times as England reached the semi-finals of the World Cup, but those exertions appeared to take their toll on the 25-year-old striker.

He was delighted that his 77th minute clinical finish ended the statistical oddity that he had never previously scored a Premier League goal in 14 attempts in that particular month.

"Different individual things can happen in the next few weeks", Pochettino told Sky Sports.

"We need to be happy, we are happy, but we have only won two games", said Pochettino.

But Chelsea bounced back from that blow, dominating the second half before Spanish defender Alonso finished off substitute Eden Hazard's pass in the 81st minute.

"We have been playing with each other for a long time, this team".

We'll have all the goals from Spurs' continued temporary home, as well as the latest from West Ham vs Bournemouth, Everton vs Southampton and Leicester vs Wolves.

Marko Arnautovic's penalty gave the hosts a half-time lead.

Life under Marco Silva is proving great once more for Richarlison with the Brazilian scoring in his second consecutive game for Everton.

Richarlison headed Everton's second after former Southampton forward Theo Walcott had opened the scoring after a well-worked free-kick move from Leighton Baines and Morgan Schneiderlin.
