Harry Kane nets two more goals Spurs beat Huddersfield 4-0

Huddersfield managed just six shots in this game - only twice in its previous 107 league games had it attempted fewer in a match.

England worldwide Harry Kane hit two in the first half to cap off his best ever September, with a Ben Davies strike sandwiched in between, as Mauricio Pochettino's side ran riot at the John Smith's Stadium to as good as secure the points before the interval.

Tottenham cruised to a 4-0 win over Huddersfield Town thanks in part to a double from Harry Kane, who took his tally for September to 13, while Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko were also on target.

"It's probably the best month I've had, especially after August", Kane said the game. The art of putting the ball in the back of the net is underestimated and he does that better than anyone.

Harry Winks made his first Premier League start since April on Saturday and barely looked as if he had been away.

Kane then made it 3-0 with a world class goal in the 24th minute. "That's exactly how it panned out".

Sissoko, a 75th-minute substitute for Eriksen, sidefooted home his first goal for Spurs in time added on - via a deflection off Christopher Schindler - following Davies' cross.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "It's so hard every three days to speak about him".

Kane's first goal demonstrated his work-rate, awareness and clinical finishing as he took advantage of hesitant defending from Huddersfield, winning the ball and bursting goalwards before slotting past Jonas Lossl.

"I'm delighted with the win, it's been a great week for the team, and we've just got to continue that after the worldwide break".

Leicester had a great chance of their own to score in the second half when Jamie Vardy poked the ball back to Shinji Okazaki, but he was unable to find the back of the net from inside the box. I think you can feel the same that he's more mature, he's not the kid who arrived here three years ago. What can we do? He needs to know he can't make this type of action, it's unsafe for him.

They were more than a match for Spurs early on as Tommy Smith had one fine long-range effort palmed away by Hugo Lloris and Rajiv van la Parra also saw Eric Dier block another opportunity.

Tottenham travelled to Cyprus in midweek in the Champions League and beat APOEL 3-0 courtesy of a Harry Kane hat-trick to maintain their 100 per cent record in the group stage.

The often influential Alli was the worst player on the pitch as far as Spurs were concerned today with him making poor decisions in the final third and getting involved in indivdual battles that he didn't need to.

"It is true that we are in very good form away from home and I hope that will go well in the future too".
