Football on the radio: how to catch Tottenham Hotspur v Bournemouth on T&C

There can be no excuses for Tottenham in the loss at Watford on Sunday but, five days after picking up their first England caps, the spotlight returns to Harry Kane.

Mauricio Pochettino praised his team’s performance but his spurned chance from the penalty spot prevented a first Premier League win of the season.

The England striker won and converted a spot-kick on Sunday after being tripped in the penalty area, a moment which led to Kane entering the history books. But yet again the 24-year-old was left to pick up the pieces after Spurs left Vicarage Road with nothing to show for their efforts.

Raheem Sterling and Ross Barkley have scored for England in consecutive matches, encouraging signs amid criticism for the midfield duo. Kane has also started scoring at this time of year before, in 2015, but England are still without an international victory for 18 months and they have only netted a third of the 16 goals they have netted.

In his latest article for the Observer, Alan Shearer reviews Harry Kane’s England career so far.

Meanwhile, Chelsea, now second after their win at Sunderland, return to Stamford Bridge to face Crystal Palace, where they have lost one of their past three Premier League visits since their return from the 2012 European Championship. Huddersfield, a point above the relegation zone, travel to West Brom to end their run of 13 Premier League home matches without defeat. Follow all the action here.
