9′ That was Kane’s 10th Premier League goal against West Ham. He now has double-figures against four teams in the top flight: Leicester City, Arsenal, Southampton and the Hammers.
8′ Son returns the favour with the assist, although this was a simple pass, the goal all about the quality of Kane.
8′ GOOAAALLLL!!! KANE! 2-0 Spurs! What a goal! Kane scores a stunner! Moments after setting up another attack as Bergwijn’s cross is just nodded clear, Kane picks up possession outside the box, nutmegs Rice and thumps a low finish past a rooted Fabianski. Tottenham’s number 10 is on top form.
7′ BIG CHANCE! Antonio misses from just a couple of yards out! West Ham’s right-wing corner is delivered to a packed near post, where it is flicked on to Antonio in the centre of the goal, but he stabs wide.
6′ Sanchez is taking a no-nonsense approach today, it seems. He rifles the ball behind for a corner after Rice’s pass into the box.
6′ West Ham are showing ambition again, but they need to make sure not to keep letting Tottenham in. Balbuena’s risky pass forces Fabianski to rush out ahead of Son.
5′ Cresswell goes for goal but, while Lloris dives, the shot always looks to be going wide.
4′ A rugged Sanchez challenge on Antonio gives West Ham an opportunity to put the ball in the box or have a shot at goal from left of centre 25 yards out.
2′ Son’s strike was Tottenham’s earliest in a Premier League match since Christian Eriksen scored in 11 seconds against Manchester United in January 2018.
1′ It is another Kane assist for another Son goal. He created all four in the win at Southampton but few if any were as impressive as this, a glorious long-range ball to the winger.
1′ GOOAAALLLL!!! SON! Incredible! 1-0 Spurs! What a start! West Ham go on the attack but are swiftly found out at the other end. Kane’s stunning pass in behind finds Son, who cuts inside and picks out the bottom-right corner. Sensational.
1′ It takes West Ham just a matter of seconds to get on the attack and let fly at goal, but Soucek’s effort does not trouble Lloris.
1′ KICK-OFF: West Ham get us up and running!
Tottenham won both Premier League meetings with West Ham last season. They last won three in a row against the Hammers with a run of five between March 2008 and December 2009.
Spurs make two changes, with Alderweireld and Bergwijn in for Eric Dier and Erik Lamela, but the big news is on the bench. Bale is in line for his Tottenham return. Carlos Vinicius is also among the substitutes. West Ham, perhaps unsurprisingly, are unchanged.

West Ham (5-4-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Vladimir Coufal, Fabian Balbuena, Angelo Ogbonna, Aaron Cresswell; Arthur Masuaku; Jarrod Bowen, Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice, Pablo Fornals; Michail Antonio.
Subs: Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Harry Winks, Gareth Bale, Lucas Moura, Ben Davies, Carlos Vinicius.
Tottenham (4-3-3): Hugo Lloris; Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Sergio Reguilon; Moussa Sissoko, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Tanguy Ndombele; Steven Bergwijn, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min.
