London: Harry Kane scored twice as 10-man Tottenham held off a West Ham comeback Saturday to maintain its perfect away record with a 3-2 victory in the Premier League,footballnews.com.ng.com reported.
Christian Eriksen appeared to have sealed victory just before the hour mark after Kane’s first-half double had put Spurs in control. But headers from Javier Hernandez and Cheikhou Kouyate either side of Serge Aurier’s dismissal ensured an uncomfortable finale for the visitors.
According to footballnews.com.ng, Tottenham has now won its opening three away games for the first time since the 1991-1992 season. It also matched a club-record equaling run of five successive away Premier League wins, stretching back to the end of its previous campaign.
Tottenham took the lead in the 34th at the London Stadium after Eriksen put Dele Alli through on the right. Alli provided a perfect cross for Kane to head in via the post.
