Huddersfield Town 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur

Business as usual for Spurs as Kane ends September in style

Harry Kane finished his September off the way he started it, by scoring a brace which helped Tottenham to a 4-0 away win over Huddersfield. This comes in a month where the English man has scored 13 for both club and country.

Tottenham opened the scoring after only 9 minutes played. Kieran Trippier’s long header fell kindly to the feet of Kane who ran into the Huddersfield box to neatly slot the ball home to the goalkeeper Jonas Lossl’s left-hand side.

Only 7 minutes later, Tottenham doubled their lead. After precise passing from the Tottenham team, the ball fell to full-back Ben Davies whose smart finish rounded off a great build-up play.

Much like the Pochettino’s Spurs, we have seen over the past couple of seasons, any chance of a Huddersfield comeback was quickly ended.

Once again at the hands of Harry Kane. Provider again Kieran Trippier fed the ball into Kane’s feet, 20 yards out he still had all the work to do. Shifting it to his left he shook off to Town defenders, then curled it past Lossl who was left with no chance.

The Town did have two good chances in the first half. First from defender Tommy Smith- his fiercely hit shot forced Hugo Lloris into a fine save. Also, Laurent Depoitre looked to have doubled his Premier League goal tally for the season. However, the crossbar came to Tottenham’s rescue as Lloris looked beaten.

Lossl was escaped embarrassment having miskicked his clearance, Harry Kane was unable to convert as the Danish keeper managed to dive at the striker’s feet to deny him of a first-half hat-trick.

Dele Alli looked to have ended his dry spell in front of goal, having turned inside of the Huddersfield defender; the woodwork prevented his toe-poke from making it his third goal of the season.

With the three points wrapped up by a dominant first half performance, Spurs took their foot off the gas in the second half.

They still managed to add a fourth to their tally for the day. From close range, Moussa Sissoko bundled in a cross from Ben Davies in the first minute of stoppage time. Opening his account for Tottenham after a recent run of game time from the Argentine manager looks to have boosted the midfielder’s confidence.

After 58 minutes, Dele Alli’s name was added to the book for diving, as he went down inside the Huddersfield box. Alli ran into the area, through on goal he threw himself to the floor in hope of earning a penalty as keeper Lossl came charging out.

Meanwhile, English marksman Harry Kane received a standing ovation from all fourth stands of the stadium - as he was replaced in the second half by Heung-Min Son.

The Terriers were the fifth club side to suffer at the hands of the 24-year-old. Kane described it as probably his ‘best month’ yet at Spurs - after a month of being unable to find the back of the net in August.

Another win on the road for Spurs put them up to third place and made it 6 away Premier League wins on the bounce, meanwhile this left Huddersfield sitting around mid-table in the eleventh spot.
