Kane double helps Spurs edge West Ham in fiery derby

West Ham looked slightly more threatening in the early stages, with Hernandez seeing a hopeful effort from distance palmed over by Hugo Lloris and Marko Arnautovic being thwarted by a last-ditch tackle from Aurier in the box.

"He is a player who I have told you many times is, for me, one of the geniuses that I have met in football".

Spurs are looking to win their opening three away games in a league season for the first time since 1991-92. We tried to get the ball off them as high as possible and break quick, which was really good.

Highlights so far: West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has won all his three home matches against the Spurs' current manager Mauricio Pochettino. He said: "For all the excitement and desire they show to beat us, we must show the same".

All proceeds from the auction, which will follow West Ham's London derby with Tottenham, will go to the victims' families and survivors of the 7.1-magnitude quake.

Bilic, whose side have one win from five games, said his players had to repeat the patterns of play from their last clash when the two teams meet at the London Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

If Kane continues at his current rate, however, it might not be long until he overtakes them all.

Despite playing his final Premier League game for West Ham on January 2nd 2017, no Hammers' player has assisted (6) or created as many goalscoring chances (74) as Dimitri Payet since the start of 2016-17 in the competition.

Tottenham manager Pochettino had taken a 49-strong group of players and club staff out for a mid-week meal at a London steak restaurant to strengthen the bond within the squad.

With West Ham having claimed victory in each of the last two home matches against Tottenham, Pochettino's reasoning is clear.

An aerial bombardment may be coming the way of Spurs, then, as West Ham go in search of back-to-back league wins at the London Stadium for only the second time. I don't want to say he is under-rated because everyone in Europe is aware of the talent that he possesses.

Spurs are also unbeaten in their last nine league outings in September - a record no doubt helped by Harry Kane's penchant for following up a barren August with a fruitful spell in front of goal. We deserved to win the game.

"The best compliment I can give Harry Kane is that we played with three centre-backs, and they all had a really good game", added Bilic.
