Kane had multiple chances in the game, including one in the 72nd minute where he hit the crossbar.

"My team showed great effort and pushed hard, but it is not easy for a new Premier League team, but this must encourage us". We are talking about quality players but they haven't worked at the moment with the rest of their new teammates.

Promoted Cardiff had appeared the more likely to win when Newcastle midfielder Isaac Hayden was sent off midway through the second half. If we are conscious that we would be taking a risk, be sure he is not going to play.

Christian Eriksen also fired a shot off target from 25 yards as Spurs continued to control the game, but Fulham gradually improved and Tom Cairney saw a long-range strike parried by Hugo Lloris.

After a somewhat messy win against Newcastle last week, Tottenham needed to be sharper against Fulham.

In contrast to Spurs, West Ham splurged almost £100 million in the transfer market to back new manager Manuel Pellegrini but still have no points to show for it after a second-half surrender to Bournemouth. The last time Fulham were outclassed in possession came in December 2017, when Brentford had 51% of the ball against the Whites.

In the July 25 elections, Imran Khan's PTI won 116 of the directly contested 272 seats, just 21 short of the halfway mark. Khan and the PTI campaigned on promises to end widespread graft while building an "Islamic welfare state".

Lucas Moura curled home his first Premier League goal to give Spurs the lead, but Aleksandar Mitrovic deservedly headed Fulham level early in the second half.

"I had a few chances and I would have liked to have done better, but I was there to score the third".

"Fulham will surely need more time to gel with coach Slavisa Jokanovic giving debuts to no less than eight players against the Eagles on Saturday".

Fellow England World Cup hero Kieran Trippier is in contention to return having sat out the win at St James' Park. Trippier's goal proved to be the game victor, giving Spurs a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Pochettino has been linked with Manchester United this week.
