Southgate's Big Guns Start Well

Last updated : 12 August 2019 By Three Lions

Three of England's main attacking threats enjoyed a fruitful start to the Premier League season at the weekend with Harry Kane leading the way.

England's skipper scored his first goal at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, reacting sharply to a loose ball in the penalty area to complete a comeback win for Spurs against Aston Villa.

Marcus Rashford netted twice as Manchester United eased past Chelsea and Raheem Sterling confirmed he is becoming indispensable for both club and country with a hat-trick in Manchester City's romp at West Ham.

Gareth Southgate will also have been pleased to see Harry Maguire receive plenty of plaudits on his Old Trafford debut following an £80m move from Leicester City and by a Daily Telegraph report which stated that the number of England-qualified players starting in the top-flight this weekend was the highest in eight years.
