The August slump is over.

England’s World Cup run to the semi-finals was one of the biggest stories of the summer and it was spearheaded by many Tottenham Hotspur stars. Two of them have earned Spurs a win over Fulham today.

Kieran Trippier gave Spurs the lead with a stunning free kick with around 20 minutes remaining, taking the ball off of set piece wizard Christian Eriksen and striking an amazing shot that the Fulham goalkeeper didn’t get within a foot off.

To add some insurance for the three points, Harry Kane finally got the August monkey off his back to make it 3-1. The former Golden Boot winner has gone an astonishing 15 career Premier League matches in August without a goal. It had become a meme at this rate, but he’s finally gotten one.

The curse is finally over. Now what kind of numbers will he put up now that’s actually allowed to score in every month of the season?
