Fulham equalised in the 52nd minute with a header from Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Last month, Kane admitted that he was targeting his first ever goal in August once the Premier League kicked off again.

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.

With the last remaining fixture in August coming away against Manchester United, there was a real danger of Kane's freakish drought extending to 2019.

Brazilian Kenedy missed a last-minute penalty as 10-man Newcastle wasted the chance to beat Cardiff on Saturday, both teams picking up their first point of the Premier League season following a goalless draw.

Kieran Trippier scored a free kick for the Three Lions in their semifinal against Russian Federation but found himself behind his Spurs teammate Christian Eriksen in the pecking order against Fulham.

But he took his opening goal beautifully, finding the top left corner from the edge of the box. It also came from Maddison's second shot in England's top flight, having had an effort on goal in the opening game against Manchester United.

Mauricio Pochettino has hit out at the speculation regarding a number of Tottenham's players' futures, saying he is exhausted of discussing possible transfers.

Tottenham regrouped, Dele Alli saw an effort cleared off the line while Kane sidefooted Eric Dier's cross against the crossbar.

MF Mousa Dembele, 8 - Entered the fray at an important moment, when Spurs had conceded an equaliser and were on the back foot. "In possession, we played well, but we need to be more focused without the ball".
