Sir Bobby Charlton: Premier League managers pay tribute as England World Cup winner dies at 86

Tottenham’s best start to a top-flight season for more 60 years got even better as a 2-0 home win over Fulham sent them two points clear at the Premier League summit on Monday.

Captain Son Heung-min’s seventh league goal of the campaign and James Maddison’s first home strike for the club secured a seventh win in nine league games.

Son curled a right-foot effort into the top corner in the 36th minute and then set up playmaker Maddison to score with a cool finish in the 54th.

Unbeaten in the league under new manager Ange Postecoglou, Spurs have 23 points, two more than champions Manchester City and local rivals Arsenal.


Tottenham Hotspur vs Fulham

A clinical Tottenham punished two Calvin Bassey errors to return to the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 home win against Fulham. Heung-min Son's first-half strike gave the hosts the lead before James Maddison punished another error from the Fulham centre-back, cooly converting past Bernd Leno having been slid through by Son. Maddison almost found a third after another mistake from Bassey before Guglielmo Vicario denied any hope of a late comeback with a smart save to deny Raul Jimenez's effort. Ange Postecoglou's side remain unbeaten in the league and travel next to Crystal Palace for another all-London clash on Friday. Fulham, meanwhile, extend their winless run against London clubs but have a chance to get back to winnings ways next Sunday when they travel to face Brighton. Thank you and goodbye!

SAVE! Vicario makes a huge save down low to his right as Jimenez is found on the right side of the box. Spurs were appealing for a foul in the build-up but nothing doing for the ref so it's a vital stop from the Italian.
