Two more for Kane as Spurs hit four at Huddersfield

Two more for Kane as Spurs hit four at Huddersfield

HARRY KANE took his tally of goals in September to a phenomenal 13 from eight outings for club and country as Huddersfield Town were given a rude awakening as to just how demanding life in the Premier League can be. The home side started strongly, controlling the tempo of the game and leaving no chances for Hotspurs to capitalise upon but Harry Kane was the man again for Tottenham as he gave his side 1-0 lead with a near post finish.

In doing so, Kane has become just one of three players to score that many goals in a single month, with Ronaldo doing it for Real Madrid in October 2010, and Messi for Barcelona in March 2012.

"A big challenge. I think they will be very motivated to play against us and have had the whole week to prepare for the game against Tottenham", he said.

"It's probably, in (terms of) goals to games, the best month I've had especially after August", Kane said.

It has been an imposing start to the season for the North London side, with their only defeat in six coming against Chelsea at Wembley. He's in an wonderful moment, he's scoring goals, his energy is fantastic - how he presses, how he works without the ball. The ball was sloppily cleared by Huddersfield's Chris Lowe but it fell kindly to the left back for the simplest of touches.

They are aiming to extend that record with victory at the Kirklees Stadium and will look once again to the goalscoring prowess of Harry Kane, who has bagged nine goals in his last five appearances.

Spurs eased off after the break but still managed a fourth when substitute Moussa Sissoko claimed his first for the club with a deflected effort from close range. And that includes him not finding the net in August at all.

The Terriers have kept four clean sheets in six league games.

He is probably the closest player to the Denmark worldwide, named Spurs' supporters' player of the season previous year, in the squad but Pochettino was reluctant to compare them, adding: "It's bad to compare two players". These two teams didn't meet before any match and this match is the first match.

Kane was on loan at Leyton Orient the last time he played a league fixture away at Huddersfield, back in February 2011.

The newly-promoted outfit beat Crystal Palace and Newcastle while recording draws with Southampton, Leicester City and Burnley. Maybe in the long-run it will turn out to be a positive, a character-building experience, but for now Wagner and his side can brush this off as a result that will have little bearing on their ultimate aims.
