Spurs profited during each of those periods. Dejan Kulusevski, one of Spurs' few standout players, cut through the Forest defence before setting up Kane for the game's first goal.

Kane was atoning for previously passing up a chance to score a second goal; Dean Henderson turned aside his penalty in the second half.

However, it wasn't sufficient, unlike against West Ham United. As a result, Forest now has four points from as many games, while Spurs increase to 10, putting them level with the defending champions Manchester City and a few points behind the league leaders Arsenal.

He was extremely effective in the first half against Spurs, as he caused issues for all three of the opposition's centre backs as well as Ivan Perisic.

They were generally always two centre playmakers and one right winger at any one moment, with a little preference towards the right flank.

A center-forward with finishing ability is desperately needed for this Forest club. Instead of another active hard worker, there should be someone to gamble and someone to cover the back post as necessary.

Results and highlights from Tottenham's win over Nottingham Forest in the Premier League. A double from Kane.

On the one hand, they managed to win 2-0 on the road in a tense setting while performing far below their potential. If Liverpool or City had followed suit, we may be using the expression "a sign of champions."
