Tottenham Hotspur moved up to third place in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory at Nottingham Forest thanks to goals from Harry Kane twice, while Steven Gerrard, the manager of Aston Villa, is under fire following a 1-0 loss to West Ham United on Sunday.
The campaign has gotten off to a promising start for Antonio Conte’s team. At the City Ground, Kane made sure they kept up their momentum.In the fifth minute, the England captain received a pass from Dejan Kulusevski right outside the Forest area and finished coolly to give Tottenham the lead.
Counting his time at Tottenham as well as his loan stints at Millwall, Leicester, and Leyton Orient, it was Kane’s 200th league goal.When Steve Cook handled Ivan Perisic’s cross 11 minutes after the half, Kane had a chance to extend Tottenham’s lead.
Kane’s penalty attempt was saved by Dean Henderson as it was his first missed opportunity in the league since 2018.In the 81st minute, Kane atoned for his error by scoring his fourth goal of the year.After recovering possession of the ball, Richarlison crossed for the striker to score into an open goal.
