Harry Kane has declared that he was happy to finally put his August goalscoring hoodoo to bed on Saturday.

Spurs ran out 3-1 winners against Fulham at Wembley, with Kane scoring the third goal to wrap up proceedings.

“It’s nice to put that one to bed,” Kane told talkSPORT after the match.

“[There’s] obviously a lot of talk about it every year so thankfully I got on the scoresheet today and we got the win, which is most important.”

The 25-year-old had famously never scored a Premier League goal for Tottenham in the month, and had gone a total of 1064 minutes without doing so.

He took a total of 15 matches and 49 shots before breaking his duck on Saturday.

Regarding the Premier League title race, Kane conceded that Manchester City remain favourites to retain their crown, but insisted all of the top six, including Tottenham, are capable of challenging them.

“They’re probably still the favourites, I think they’ve done very well last year. They’ve still got a similar team, they’ve added some good players as well.

“But in the Premier League now the top six are so strong that anyone who can get on a good run at a good moment and get the momentum can challenge and can win the league so we’re part of that.”

“It’s important that we’ve started well obviously, with the players coming back later from the World Cup, and even in the recent years we’ve finished second and third but we’ve not started great.

“Hopefully we can get a bit of momentum early and just carry that on throughout the season.”
