LONDON: Harry Kane created Premier League history as his goal gave Tottenham a 1-0 win over Wolves.
The England captain headed home in the second half to score for the 185th time in the Premier League, taking him above Sergio Aguero to fourth in the all-time list of scorers.
It was Kane’s 250th in all competitions for Spurs, earning a win which extends their unbeaten start to the season.
The hosts could not approach the Wolves goal for much of the first half, only recording their first shot in the 45th minute. The away side, on the other hand, peppered the opposition goal in the opening 45 minutes, albeit with speculative efforts.
Antonio Conte’s side were much improved after the break and the pressure was eventually rewarded in the 64th minute as Kane entered the record books.
Perisic flicked Son’s cross on and Kane nodded home from close range to overtake Aguero in the list of all-time scorers, with Andrew Cole next in his sights on 187.
Wilfried Zaha underlined his importance to Crystal Palace with a crucial double as his side picked up a first Premier League win of the season by battling back to beat Aston Villa 3-1.
Zaha swiftly cancelled out Ollie Watkins’s early opener at Selhurst Park before converting on the rebound after his second-half penalty was saved by Emiliano Martinez.
Substitute Jean-Philippe Mateta grabbed the Eagles’ clinching goal with his first touch, with Zaha again involved.
Star man Zaha, who claimed the opener in Monday’s 1-1 draw at Liverpool, has now scored in each of the Eagles’ last seven top-flight victories (9 goals, 4.5 xG) and was afforded a standing ovation when he was brought off late on.
Patrick Vieira’s hosts also had a Jeffrey Schlupp goal disallowed for offside during a dominant performance.
Villa faded fast from the rapid start and, although they hit the crossbar through Leon Bailey at 1-1, manager Steven Gerrard leaves south London with plenty to ponder.
Demarai Gray grabbed a late equaliser as Everton snatched their first Premier League point of the season with a 1-1 draw against promoted Nottingham Forest.
Gray latched onto a long ball with just two minutes remaining at Goodison Park to cancel out an effort from Brennan Johnson just seven minutes earlier.
Forest had taken the lead against the run of play but Steve Cooper’s side still caused the Merseysiders enough problems to feel a draw was the least they deserved.
Everton had their moments in attack but failed to create many clear-cut openings and had enough shaky moments to worry Frank Lampard.
Aleksandar Mitrovic’s last-minute header snatched Fulham a 3-2 Premier League win over local rivals Brentford at a rocking Craven Cottage.
The Serbia striker converted Kevin Mbabu’s teasing far-post cross at the last, just as Fulham were fearing to have squandered victory after surrendering the 2-0 lead they established inside the opening 20 minutes.
Marco Silva’s men sealed their first win of the new Premier League campaign thanks to Mitrovic’s third goal of the campaign.
Brentford striker Toney saw two fine finishes ruled out for offside, only to make it what he thought would be third time lucky when he tapped home to level the scores at 2-2 in 71st minute, with the Bees then expecting to steal at least a point.
Super sub Che Adams’s stunning scissor kick sealed Southampton an impressive 2-1 comeback win at Leicester as key defender Wesley Fofana watched from the stands.
The talented centre-back was conspicuous by his absence from Brendan Rodgers’ matchday squad amid Chelsea’s attempts to prise him away from the King Power Stadium.
It was Leicester’s lack of attacking threat from open play that was evident on the pitch, however, as James Maddison’s smart free-kick cancelled out by substitute Adams’ brace as Southampton ran out victors.
Saints’ first Premier League win of the season represented their first triumph on the road since February and required a show of resilience after the Foxes went ahead in the 54th minute.
Maddison intelligently beat a poor wall to score a free-kick that Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men bounced back well from, with Leicester-born Adams coming off the bench to lash home a deserved equaliser.
Saints continued to press forward and secured victory as Adams acrobatically turned home James Ward-Prowse’s cross late on. The post denied him a hat-trick in stoppage time.
Arsenal coasted to victory at Bournemouth as captain Martin Odegaard’s early brace took the visitors to the top of the Premier League.
The Gunners kept up their perfect start to the new campaign, their 3-0 win at the Vitality Stadium sealed with a fine William Saliba strike as the defender opened his account for the club.
