Match Report: Huddersfield 0 – 4 Spurs
Kane is in a fine run of form as he fires two past Huddersfield in a 4-0 win; Tottenham defend their unbeaten away winning streak.
The first goal came in the 9th minute when Trippier nodded on a through ball to Kane who took the pass in his stride and comfortably put it out of reach of Lössl. Davies made it 2-0 just seven minutes later, when the defender made an easy finish, bagging the rebound of a previous Christian Eriksen effort.
Kane scored his second by beating the Huddersfield number one with a superb strike from 20 yards out. As the Huddersfield defence began to unravel with each attack, Dele Alli’s effort came off the post almost making it 4-0. Spurs had a relatively quiet half after the interval having already broken the Huddersfield defence so easily during the first half. Kane had chance to get a hat-trick but misjudged Dier’s flick and ended up putting it wide.
Towards the end, Huddersfield looked deflated and Spurs too comfortable. Kane went off to a standing ovation from the Spurs fans after another quality performance upfront. Sissoko sealed the win with a fourth goal in stoppage time. His shot from close range took a minor deflection off Schindler and beat the keeper. Spurs enjoyed a very comfortable win, walking away with three points and four goals.

“We deserved the victory. Until today they only conceded three goals and we scored four. I speak very highly about my team, we dominated the game. I am so happy with everyone because we played Champions League in Cyprus, arrived late and came here and showed energy. It was a fantastic performance for us.”
Man of the Match
Yet again, Harry Kane takes the Man of the Match accolade. Kane exhibited all the traits of a world class striker on the park in this fixture. his most notable trait, and his most effective is his pinpoint accuracy after creating half a yard of space for himself. He really is a goal machine in the form he is currently in.
