Harry Kane bettered his own record for goals scored in a calendar month as his double strike helped Tottenham to a comfortable win at Huddersfield.
The 24-year-old has now scored 13 goals for club and country in September, as Huddersfield became the fifth club side to suffer at the hands of the England marksman this month.
He delivered his first blow inside 10 minutes when he collected Kieran Trippier’s header, ran into the Huddersfield area before slotting past keeper Jonas Lossl.
It was then 2-0 soon after. This time Ben Davies demonstrated his poise in front of goal with a good strike after great combination play from Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.
The goal of the match came barely midway into the half. Kane was again fed by Trippier before he drifted across the 18-yard area and bent a brilliant effort past the Danish keeper.
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.
Laurent Depoitre’s strike that hit the crossbar, and Tommy Smith’s fierce shot, which produced a good save from Hugo Lloris, were Huddersfield’s only chances of note.
Spurs move up to third in the Premier League and Huddersfield are in 10th.
