Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield have been given a Premier League wake-up call as Harry Kane’s stunning September continued with two goals in Tottenham’s 4-0 Premier League win.
The victory lifted Spurs into third place and marks the first time the club have won their opening four away games since their 1960-61 double-winning campaign.
For Huddersfield, the loss was a reality check for a side which had kept clean sheets in four of their previous six matches and have made a promising start to life in the top flight.
Kane, who now has 13 goals for club and country this month including a Champions League hat-trick at Apoel Nicosia, opened the scoring in the ninth minute with a confident finish after robbing Town defender Chris Loewe.
Ben Davies made it 2-0, firing home after another slip-up from the unfortunate Loewe in the 23rd minute before Kane grabbed his second in spectacular fashion.
The England forward left two markers for dead on the edge of the penalty area with a clever body swerve and fired an unstoppable shot into the corner.
Spurs added a fourth in stoppage time when substitute Moussa Sissoko finished off a counter-attack after good work from Son Heung-min and Davies.
Asked if he has ever felt more on top of his game, Kane told said: “Probably not.
“If you look at the goals to games it’s probably the best month I’ve had, especially after August.
“It’s nice, I feel good, I feel confident, when these boys are up the pitch putting in good crosses and through balls and I’m just there to put them away.
“I’m delighted with the win, it’s been a great week for the team, and we’ve just got to continue that after the international break.”
