Harry Kane’s 250th Tottenham Hotspur goal took Spurs to the top of the Premier League with a 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday as a 2-1 defeat to Southampton compounded Leicester City’s miserable start to the season.
If anyone is to rival Manchester City and Liver-pool in the title race, Tottenham look well set after backing Antonio Conte heavily in the transfer market in his first full season in charge.
After a strong end to last season to snatch a place in the Champions League from north London rivals Arsenal, Tottenham have already taken seven more points than they got from their respective fixtures last season in the first three games of the new campaign.
However, Conte was still displeased with a sloppy first-half performance that could have been punished against more potent opponents.
New signings Goncalo Guedes and Matheus Nunes impressed for Wolves, but they have scored just once in three games this season as Guedes, Ruben Neves and Daniel Podence were guilty of failing to hit the target.—AFP
