Jermaine Jenas: Manchester United job the one Mauricio Pochettino wants

Alderweireld had been an unused substitute as Spurs began the new season with a 2-1 win at Newcastle, having helped Belgium finish third at the World Cup.

Everton's £50-million signing Richarlison continued to quieten queries of his price tag with the victor as Southampton was defeated 2-1 at Goodison Park, while Leicester saw off Wolves 2-0 despite a red card for Jamie Vardy.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard has scored 69 Premier League goals but none in September while West Ham striker Andy Carroll is the highest goalscorer with more than one such month, with 53 goals but none in September - injury means that will not change this season - or May.

"Maybe it looks as though we do have time but the Premier League is so competitive and it is so important to be ready".

Mauricio Pochettino's men will therefore host another two home fixtures against Cardiff and Liverpool at Wembley.

Brazilian winger Lucas Moura and Kieran Trippier, off a shot from a free kick, had already scored for Tottenham, with Aleksandar Mitrovic making it 1-1 for Fulham just after halftime while sitting on the ground.

Tottenham may still be suffering a World Cup hangover with the majority of its stars enjoying barely a week of pre-season training after their efforts in Russian Federation.

Tottenham Hotspur striker admitted that he is relieved to have broken his August jinx by finally scoring his first ever Premier League goal in August.

"I thought we played really well and created a lot of chances". But they are all good players, and they bring something that we didn't have.

"We conceded too many chances".

West Ham has lost both its opening games.

Marko Arnautovic handed the hammers the lead in the 33rd minute but only for Callum Wilson to equalise on the hour-mark for the Cherries and Cork to seal the victor six minutes later.

Bournemouth completed the turnaround amid more weak defending from the home side, scoring their second goal in six minutes through Steve Cook's header.

Theo Walcott set up Richarlison for his headed goal and also scored himself for Everton at Goodison Park.

A spectacular own goal from Matt Doherty and a deflected James Maddison strike put the Foxes in command.
