Defender Ben Davies and M Sissoko were also on the score sheet for the visiting side as Tottenham maintains the pressure at the top of the Premier League table. Chris Schindler scored an own-goal in the dying minutes of the game, deflecting Moussa Sissoko's shot beyond his own keeper and putting the icing on the cake for Spurs in a comprehensive victory over David Wagner's side.

Such generosity is rarely seen at Premier League grounds but Kane is a rarity himself - a world-class English player in a league dominated by foreign imports.

Tottenham Hotspur are aiming to win each of their first four away Premier League matches in a single season for the first time.

Striker Steve Mounie should be available for selection again after the global break, but Huddersfield being shot-shy is not exactly a new thing that can be wholly explained with reference to the Benin international's absence. But it was clear that, by about the hour mark, both teams were relatively happy with what they had: Spurs with the win, Huddersfield with a scoreline that fell short of absolute humiliation.

With 13 goals for club and country in the month of September, including seven in the past week, Tottenham striker Harry Kane's form is leaving his manager struggling for words.

What was, therefore, heartening was how the home fans stuck with their team.

Huddersfield will hope that striker Steve Mounie recovers from his heel injury ahead of this encounter. Huddersfield captain Tommy Smith found some space on the edge of the box and he drove one towards the bottom left corner, but Lloris got down low to his right and pushed the ball away from goal. At half-time, Town were applauded off by the John Smith's Stadium faithful even through already three goals down.

Huddersfield will provide a different type of challenge to that of Newcastle, Everton, West Ham and APOEL from the perspective of the Terriers not having much pressure on their shoulders to force the game, a style of play which has flummoxed Pochettino and his players at Wembley.

"It's the next step but this group so far has taken every step as well as they could have done". A just appreciation for an extraordinary striker who has now registered three braces, all away from home, this Premier League season! Maybe in the long-run it will turn out to be a positive, a character-building experience, but for now Wagner and his side can brush this off as a result that will have little bearing on their ultimate aims.
