HUDDERSFIELD: Harry Kane extended his brilliant scoring run with another double in Tottenham Hotspur’s 4-0 win over Huddersfield in the Premier League on Saturday, taking the England striker’s tally in September to 13 goals in eight games for club and country.
Fresh off his sixth hat trick of 2017 in the Champions League at midweek, Kane put Tottenham ahead in the ninth minute by latching onto a long header forward by Kieran Trippier and delivering a low finish inside the near post.
His second goal made it 3-0 and came in the 23rd minute, with Kane turning his marker off a throw-in and calmly curling into the far corner from outside the area.
After what has become his customary drought in August, Kane has scored at least two goals in five of his six matches for Spurs this month and now has six goals in the Premier League in his bid for a third straight Golden Boot.
Left back Ben Davies scored between Kane’s goals and Moussa Sissoko completed the rout in injury time as Spurs secured a fourth straight away victory in the league this season. They are yet to win in three games in their temporary home of Wembley Stadium, however.
Dele Alli also struck the post for Tottenham, before getting booked for diving in the area in the second half.
The victory moves Spurs into third place ahead of Chelsea, who are at home to table-toppers Manchester City in Saturday’s late match. Huddersfield lie 10th with nine points from seven matches.
