Mauricio Pochettino reacts to Serge Aurier's ridiculous red card against West Ham

Just three days after a midweek dinner date, the Tottenham boss - our early victor - has finally admitted he is smitten by the England star. I am happy with him'.

This lunchtime encounter marked the first time Kane had scored an away goal against West Ham, though his second strike made it seven goals in six games against Spurs' London rivals.

Kane doubled the lead in the 38th minute through a rebound effort, as he was in the right place at the right time to tap in a rebound shot from Deli Ali.

When Christian Eriksen added a third - after Kane had thumped a free-kick against a post - Tottenham were cruising.

Aurier, already on a booking, scythed down Carroll to mark his full league debut with a red card. Then of course we are disappointed because he got the second, but that is football.

When Marko Arnautovic made a powerful, bending run through the core of Tottenham's midfield and defence in the 17th minute, it took an excellently timed tackle from Aurier to stop what looked a certain goal. We've got another away game next week which will be tough and we're looking forward to it'.

"We played well and fought", he told Sky Sports News. "That game means more than three points".

Hammers boss Bilic could at least console himself with the encouraging fightback from his side, who took some serious hidings at home last season.

While Tottenham were beginning to assert themselves, West Ham were forced into a reshuffle in the 27th minute when Michail Antonio limped off with a groin problem to be replaced by Andy Carroll.

Eriksen immediately sets up Alli with a great pass, and the young midfielder bursts down the right channel before teeing up Kane with an excellent cross into the heart of the penalty area. "Until that first goal we were proper like past year when we beat them, it was a really good performance".

However, Dembele's absence will always weaken Tottenham since few players possess such strength and skill to hold and carry the ball like the Belgian, though Sissoko did a decent enough job.

Kane took his tally in the Premier League this season to four and he now has 21 goals in London derbies.

"The best compliment I can give Harry Kane is that we played with three centre-backs, and they all had a really good game", added Bilic.

The result brings an end to West Ham's mini-revival and leaves them on four points after six games.
