Harry Kane’s late double secures Spurs win

Harry Kane scored two late goals to ensure Tottenham avoided an opening-day upset as they won 3-1 against Aston Villa.

Newly-promoted Villa took a shock lead in the ninth minute when John McGinn finished past Hugo Lloris.

Spurs raised their level in the second half and eventually equalised with a brilliant strike from club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele in the 73rd minute.

Kane then put Spurs ahead in the 86th minute before adding another shortly afterwards.

The third goal put the game beyond Villa, who had battled hard and threatened to deal an early setback to Spurs’ season before tiring under increasing pressure late in the game.
