Kane rips West Ham apart as Spurs star sets new goals & assists record

Harry Kane made David Moyes’ return to the touchline a miserable one as he tore West Ham apart in the opening 45 minutes of Sunday’s London derby.

The Tottenham striker was in terrific form, scoring twice having already laid on the assist for Son Heung-Min’s opener as Spurs romped into a 3-0 lead inside 16 minutes.

After a poor start to the season, the Hammers looked to have turned their fortunes around before the international break with terrific surprise wins over Leicester and West Ham. Moyes was absent for both of those games after testing positive for coronavirus but was back in the dugout to watch Kane’s masterclass.

First, the England captain carved West Ham apart with a terrific ball from deep that allowed Son to cut inside and fire past Lukasz Fabianski.

Next, the 27-year-old embarrassed Three Lions teammate Declan Rice with a nutmeg on the edge of the box before beating Fabianski at the near post.

Kane’s second, and Spurs’ third, came soon after with a powerful header to bury Sergio Reguilon’s inviting cross.

Kane now has five goals and seven assists in just five league games so far this season, the most of any player in Premier League history at the same stage of the campaign.
