England global Harry Kane hit two in the first half to cap off his best ever September, with a Ben Davies strike sandwiched in between, as Mauricio Pochettino's side ran riot at the John Smith's Stadium to as good as secure the points before the interval.

Spurs sit fourth in the Premier League table after six matches and have won all three of their away matches so far this season.

"But at the moment he is in a very good condition", he added.

Huddersfield have proven to be surprisingly durable in defence this term, keeping four clean sheets in their opening six league matches, but that was long forgotten during a 90 minutes they will want to forget. "We probably won't be up against each other much in the game but it's always great to play the best in the world", the English worldwide said.

Another day, another Spurs win fuelled by the brilliance of Harry Kane, who scored two in their 4-0 victory over Huddersfield on Saturday.

Almost four years later, the Belgium midfielder returned to Stamford Bridge as a highly coveted and more rounded player with Manchester City, and showed his former club exactly what it lost.

"Honestly, we were not good enough today against a high-quality team". The newcomers know too well that the game will be tricky, but they'll put sufficient effort to deny the North Londoners the maximum points at their backyard.


So what can fans take away from the Lilywhites' win at the John Smith's Stadium?

In eight games for club and country Kane has now found the net 13 times, only failing to score in two matches, and one of those was for England, where a profound sense of ennui can kill off even the most potent striking instincts.

"He is fantastic. He is great in front of goal and when we don't have the ball he is the first one available to run, to fight for the team".

"How he presses and works without the ball is fantastic. I wish he keeps going at the same level and for the team to win games".

Perhaps the only negative from an otherwise faultless Spurs display came on 58 minutes when Dele Alli was booked for simulation following a challenge from Terriers 'keeper Jonas Lossl in the penalty area.

"I did not see it but I have to trust you if you tell me now it was is for many reasons it happens". He needs to improve if that happened.

"This type of action doesn't help him, doesn't help the club and doesn't help football".

"But that is a process to learn, when you are young sometimes you make more than one mistake".
