Tottenham Hotspur (11/1 Premier League Outright) have climbed up to third in the Premier League table after Harry Kane’s double was enough to defeat a spirited Nottingham Forest.

Spurs have picked up ten points from their opening four games, although they were put under pressure by Forest throughout the contest at a buoyant City Ground.

Kane (5/1 Premier League Top Goalscorer) opened the scoring after just five minutes when his scuffed shot from the edge of the area wrongfooted Dean Henderson and went into the far corner, giving him 200 league goals.

Forest had opportunities to equalise but Spurs were given a gilt-edged chance to make it 2-0 when they were awarded a penalty after Steve Cook handled on the line.

Usually reliable from the spot, Kane’s effort was well saved by England colleague Henderson but he made up for it with a close-range header 10 minutes from time to secure the points.

Forest can take encouragement from their display but know they need to improve in both boxes, and they are 14th in the table with four points from as many games.

Earlier, West Ham United secured their first goal and first win of the season with Pablo Fornals’ deflected strike securing David Moyes’ men a 1-0 victory at Aston Villa.

The Hammers had lost their first three without scoring but Fornals’ effort made the difference at Villa Park, with Steven Gerrard starting to come under pressure following three defeats from four matches.

Both sides are now on three points from four matches with Villa a place above in 15th by virtue of goals scored.

At Molineux, a fantastic volley from Allan Saint-Maximin rescued a point for Newcastle United (13/2 Top 4 Finish) as they drew 1-1 away at Wolves.

Ruben Neves gave the hosts the advantage with an excellent effort from the edge of the box as Bruno Lage’s side targeted a first win of the season.

They thought they had made it 2-0 when Raul Jimenez slid home from close range but a foul in the build-up was spotted by VAR and the goal was chalked off.

The draw sees Newcastle rise to seventh while Wolves are 19th on just two points, with only Leicester City beneath them.
