Spurs sink Wolves, Southampton hold Man Utd

Harry Kane made his first appearance for Tottenham this season as Nuno Espirito Santo earned a 1-0 win against his former club Wolves, while Mason Greenwood salvaged a 1-1 draw for Manchester United at Southampton on Sunday.

Striker Kane came off the bench in the second half at Molineux after the Manchester City transfer target missed the first two games following his late return from his close-season holiday.

The England captain, frustrated by Spurs' 13-year trophy drought, hopes to force a move to Premier League champions City before the August 31 transfer deadline. At St Mary's, Manchester United failed to build on last weekend's 5-1 demolition of Leeds.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side needed a Mason Greenwood equaliser to rescue a point after Fred's own goal. While United left the south-coast frustrated, they did equal Arsenal's English top-flight record of 27 successive away league games without defeat.

When Southampton last met United in February, their humiliating 9-0 defeat ranked as the joint heaviest loss in Premier League history.
