Mauricio Pochettino too focused to celebrate Tottenham goals

Mauricio Pochettino too focused to celebrate Tottenham goals

Slavisa Jokanovic knows his Fulham side will have to box clever as they look to get something out of their return to Wembley when tackling Tottenham in the Premier League. We're all getting to an age where we're a bit more experienced and we want to win.

Arsenal, meanwhile, suffered a 2-0 loss to title holders Manchester City to make a disappointing start to Unai Emery's reign after the Spanish head coach replaced Arsene Wenger.

What was largely expected to be a routine victory for Tottenham on a fine Saturday afternoon at Wembley turned out to be a real battle for Mauricio Pochettino's men against a newly-promoted Fulham side that had put up a relatively poor showing against Crystal Palace in their opening fixture of the Premier League season. But if they are going to be here, I want full commitment.

Sarri arrived at Chelsea promising to bring some fun after a hard end to the tenure of previous manager, Antonio Conte. However, the visitors fought back from two down.

Pedro Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata exploited Arsenal's high line to put Chelsea 2-0 up against Arsenal, which wasted a string of great chances at the other end before scoring twice in a five-minute span through Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi.

Chelsea scored the all-important fifth goal with 10 minutes remaining as substitute Eden Hazard's low cross was swept home by Alonso. But credit to Fulham and only after about 60 minutes did we start to take it into more unsafe areas.

Kane's golden moment came soon after as he cut inside from Erik Lamela's surging run and rolled into the bottom corner.

However, Fulham hit back after the break as Aleksandar Mitrovic, soon after hitting the post, nodded home a 52nd-minute equaliser while on the floor.

Leicester also ended their 2-0 win over Wolves with 10 men after their England striker Jamie Vardy was dismissed for a reckless tackle on Matt Doherty.

Leicester doubled the lead through James Maddison, leaving Wolves without a win so far. Danny Ings pulled a goal back for the Saints in the 54th minute but the hosts held on for victory.

A poor performance against Newcastle last time out had started fears once more of the Englishman not being able to score in the first month of the new Premier League season, amid talks of tiredness through being overworked.

The London club lost for the second straight game, beaten 2-1 by Bournemouth after taking the lead through Marko Arnautovic's penalty.

"It's a long old season, but starting with two wins out of two is important".
