Huddersfield 0 Spurs 2

Harry Kane scored twice as Spurs moved up to fourth, but the Terriers stayed bottom of the Premier League and are still waiting for their first victory after seven games.

The hosts started brightly but went behind when Kane headed in Kieran Trippier’s right-wing cross.


Spurs added a second when Danny Rose went down in the box after slight contact from Florent Hadergjonaj, with Kane sending Jonas Lossl the wrong way with the resulting penalty. While they were made to work, this game was so straightforward that Spurs were able to bring off Jan Vertonghen, who had a knock, and Mousa Dembele at half-time – perhaps with Wednesday’s home Champions League game against Barcelona in mind.


Kane’s three-game goalless run – a drought by his standards – is definitely over as he followed up his strike against Brighton last weekend with another two here, taking his tally for Spurs to 145. He headed home Trippier’s cross for the opener after good work by Lucas Moura, who was tackled but got up quickly to pass the ball out to the right-back.


Kane’s second was more controversial because Rose went down easily in the box after a tug on the shirt from substitute Hadergjonaj. The home fans were furious but the England striker did not care as he slotted home.

Spurs’ front three were lively – with Moura and Son Heung-min forcing saves from Lossl and linking up well together. But in reality, there was barely any need to even play the second half because the game was done by the 34th minute.
