Kane hits brace as Tottenham beat Huddersfield 2-0

Kane
Harry Kane struck twice at the John Smith’s Stadium for the second season running to hand Spurs a 2-0 win over Huddersfield and lift his side into the top four.
Much has been made of Kane’s indifferent form at the start of this season but he looked as sharp as ever when leaping high to head home Kieran Trippier’s pinpoint cross from the right after 25 minutes.
Less than 10 minutes later, Kane grabbed his and Spurs’ second from the penalty spot after Florent Hadergjonaj had upended Danny Rose with a clumsy challenge.
Spurs have now won their last three matches in all competitions following a three-game losing streak and head into their midweek clash against Barcelona in good spirits, while Huddersfield remain without a Premier League win this season.
The visitors rather sleepwalked their way into the game but they still had two great opportunities to score inside the opening 10 minutes. Rose was almost the unlikely provider of the game’s opener when he headed a Trippier cross just wide, before Kane’s attempted chip moments later was well smothered by Jonas Lossl.
It wasn’t long before Spurs did go in front, however. After being forced wide inside the area, Lucas laid the ball off to Trippier who whipped a devilish ball into the box for Kane to power a header into the ground and beyond Lossl. It was the seventh goal that Trippier has assisted for Kane since the start of last season – more than any other combination in the division.
To compound matters, Terence Kongolo was forced off injured in the immediate aftermath of Kane’s opener and his replacement Hadergjonaj gave away a soft penalty just a few minutes after coming on when he tangled with Rose. Kane stepped up, sent Lossl the wrong way and smashed his penalty into the net to move into fifth place in the club’s all-time top scorers list with 145.
Huddersfield were inches away from equalising in first-half stoppage time and, had they done so, the whole complexion of the game may well have changed. Chris Lowe’s delivery from the byline was met with a thundering volley from Laurent Depoitre but the Belgian was mightily unfortunate to see his effort bounce off the underside of the bar and out, with goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga well beaten.
The second half largely passed by without incident although Gazzaniga had to be on his toes to keep out a goalbound effort from substitute Isaac Mbenza late on, while Son Heung-Min and Lucas were both guilty of squandering decent counter-attacking opportunities for the away side.
Spurs held onto their win pretty comfortably in the end, although Mauricio Pochettino will be concerned at having to bring off both Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele at half-time ahead of their huge midweek game against Barcelona, with Dele Alli ruled out and Christian Eriksen doubtful.
