Premier League star reveals reason he rejected Chelsea on transfer deadline day

Spurs secured their first win of the season at their temporary home by beating Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Sizeable gaps in quality between first choice and reserve players meant that when Mauricio Pochettino lost or rested his biggest stars last season, results dipped.

Meanwhile Swansea manager Paul Clement was pleased with his side's response after they were beaten 1-0 at home by Newcastle United last time out.

Harry Kane has scored 80 goals in his last 120 Premier league games. This has earned him 32 points on Fantasy Football, more than any other player from the opening four games of the season.

They have been one of the most free-flowing and attractive teams to watch in Europe for many years now and importing a manager like Bosz from Ajax was never going to change that philosophy.

Llorente joins Harry Kane in what has become a lethal Tottenham team, with a strong depth to it, while over in west London Conte will now rely on the 23-year-old Belgian Michy Batshuayi when Morata is rested.

The likes of Reus and Schurrle may be absent this time, but Dortmund will still pack a punch when they come forward.

Keeper De Gea to be starter for Man United against Basel
They will be replaced by Lindelof and Smalling, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo remain absent through knee injuries. The Old Trafford outfit begin their campaign on Tuesday, hosting Swiss side FC Basel in the opening group stage match.

The visitors could direct a charging finger at the authorities, that dismissed a flawlessly good goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for offside.

However, Pochettino and his troops emerged 3-1 victors in a thrilling champions league clash against Dortmund in midweek, and this could mark the start of turning Wembley into their fortress.

Tottenham went on to strengthen their squad at the end of the transfer window, recruiting Davinson Sánchez and then Serge Aurier and Fernando Llorente on deadline day.

"For me there is no doubt Harry Kane is one of the best strikers [in the world]".

The win puts Tottenham in the driver's seat to finish second behind presumptive Group H winners Real Madrid.

Kane's stock continued to rise last season when he managed 29 goals, despite playing just 30 games and beat Romelu Lukaku to be top scorer for the second consecutive season.
