Harry Kane scored for a fifth Premier League match in a row as Tottenham Hotspur moved a point off the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 home win over Everton.

After a first half in which Everton had the best chances, Spurs dominated the second and broke the deadlock when Kane won a penalty that he converted for his ninth league goal of the season, on his 400th appearance for the club.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg wrapped up the win late on to take Spurs to 23 points after 10 matches, their best start to a Premier League season. They are level on points with second-placed Manchester City and one behind leaders Arsenal, both of whom are in action tomorrow.

Everton are 14th with 10 points. 

Mitrovic strikes

Aleksandar Mitrovic returned from injury to claim his seventh goal of the season as Fulham and AFC Bournemouth shared four goals and the points in an enthralling encounter at Craven Cottage.

Dominic Solanke scored the Cherries’ fastest goal in the Premier League, after just 65 seconds, but Issa Diop headed Fulham level.

AFC Bournemouth retook the lead through a well-worked goal from Jefferson Lerma, but the midfielder conceded a penalty by fouling Mitrovic, who equalised from the spot.

The two sides stay locked in the top half of the table, AFC Bournemouth ninth on 13 points after six matches unbeaten, with Fulham a place and a point behind.

Wolves end goal drought

Wolverhampton Wanderers ended a goal drought of 370 minutes as they halted a three-match losing run to beat fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest 1-0 at Molineux and move out of the relegation zone.

Ruben Neves got the winner from the penalty spot, Wolves’ first second-half goal this season.

Brennan Johnson had a chance to equalise with another spot-kick awarded after a VAR review, but Jose Sa denied him from 12 yards to condemn Forest to bottom spot on five points after a sixth defeat in seven matches. Wolves climb to 17th on nine points.

Maddison frustration

Leicester City leapfrogged Forest after a goalless draw at home to Crystal Palace.

Brendan Rodgers’ side had dominated in search of only their second win of the season but James Maddison and Harvey Barnes missed their best chances, with the former’s woes compounded by a fifth yellow card that will force him out of Thursday’s visit of Leeds United.

Exciting Sunday in store

An exciting Sunday is set to take place with five of the Premier League's top six in action, including the top two, Arsenal and Man City, looking to maintain their positions at the summit.

Arsenal will have the chance to go four points clear at the top, albeit possibly only for a couple of hours, if they beat Leeds.

City will at least reduce that gap back to one should they defeat Liverpool in a mouthwatering match at Anfield. 

Graham Potter is aiming to continue his impressive start as Chelsea head coach when he takes his side to Aston Villa.

Newcastle United host Manchester United knowing that victory will lift them above their opponents and potentially into the top four, while West Ham United will be looking for a third consecutive win when they travel to Southampton
