Spurs striker relieved to get his first Premier League goal in the opening month at the 15th time of asking on Saturday

Harry Kane finally put end to one of the Premier League's biggest peculiarities on Saturday.

Kane wrapped up a 3-1 win over Fulham at Wembley Stadium and, in doing so, scored his first goal in the month of August.

It broke a strange run that spanned five seasons, 15 matches, 1,065 minutes and 49 shots for the double PL Golden Boot winner.

"It's nice to get on the scoresheet and nice to know what it feels like to score in August," said the Tottenham Hotspur striker.

His manager, Mauricio Pochettino, revealed Kane's full-time celebrations and believes the 25-year-old can play with less pressure in Spurs' final August match this season, against Manchester United in eight days' time.

“I am very happy for Harry,” Pochettino said. “It was important for him to feel the net in this period. If not we might have made a big trauma for him!

"He came up to me after the game to tell me: ‘Gaffer, I have done it!’"
