Moura was in action for Tottenham against Fulham at the Wembley Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Tottenham beat Newcastle 2-1 last week.

We'll have all the goals from Spurs' continued temporary home, as well as the latest from West Ham vs Bournemouth, Everton vs Southampton and Leicester vs Wolves.

Not one told me today that they wanted to find a solution [to leave].

His team is the first since 2003 to not bring in a single player during the summer transfer window.

Mauricio Pochettino's men will therefore host another two home fixtures against Cardiff and Liverpool at Wembley.

Trippier and Kane scored the key goals in the final 20 minutes for Tottenham after Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic had cancelled out Lucas Moura's first-half strike.

Tottenham may still be suffering a World Cup hangover with the majority of their stars enjoying barely a week of pre-season training after their efforts in Russian Federation.

Speaking after Spurs' 3-1 win over Fulham, Pochettino said he would not be "blackmailed" or "pressured" to include a player in his team.

"Overall we were much better and deserved the three points, but we still need to improve".

Spurs had laid the foundations to push on for more goals after the restart, but it was Fulham who nearly found an equaliser during the early stages of the second half as Mitrovic directed a 20-yard effort off the far post.

"They are all part of the squad and the club, like I explained last week, every player has different goals, targets, motivation and reality. It is a good start with two wins out of two".

Everton's revolution under Marco Silva gained more momentum at Goodison with Richarlison scoring his third goal in two games. Jokanovic has major concerns across his backline, where injuries and suspension have left Fulham with a makeshift feel, but took enough positives from their opening weekend defeat by Crystal Palace to offer optimism.

Jamie Vardy was red carded in the 66th minute but the Foxes used their experience to hold on to victory.

Cardiff and Newcastle both registered their first point of the season in a drab 0-0 draw in the Welsh capital in a missed opportunity for both sides.

"That is what we want from the players that are outside, being focused when the manager or team needs them to be available to do".
