‘It wasn’t straightforward,’ insists two-goal Harry Kane

Harry Kane believes he is in the best form of his life after netting two more goals in Tottenham’s 4-0 victory at Huddersfield.

Kane took just nine minutes to open the scoring at the John Smith’s Stadium and Ben Davies added a second moments later.

England striker Kane then doubled his tally for the day midway through the first half as Spurs threatened to run riot.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side were forced to wait until added time in the second half for their fourth, scored by Moussa Sissoko, but Kane again stole the headlines.

The 24-year-old has now scored 13 goals in eight games for club and country since the start of September – having once again failed to notch in the month of August.

Asked if he has ever felt more on top of his game, Kane told Sky Sports: “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.”

Kane was on loan at Leyton Orient the last time he played a league fixture away at Huddersfield, back in February 2011.

That day he scored but was later sent off during a 2-2 draw, and he added: “I remember it.

“I got a yellow card in the first half, then I scored to make it 1-1 and the second yellow was a bit dodgy – I still don’t think it was a yellow to this day.

“It was a learning curve, I was young, I was away from home, the crowd got on the ref’s back, and it was all part of a learning experience for me, but better memories this time.”

Kane put that memory in the past by calmly slotting past Jonas Lossl after running clear of the Huddersfield defence to continue his fine run of form in front of goal.

Davies then finished off an impressive move, which saw Dele Alli, Kane and Christian Eriksen combine, in the 16th minute.

Spurs were cruising and added a third after 23 minutes courtesy of Kane’s stunning left-footed effort which curled into Lossl’s far corner.

Alli also hit the post for Spurs while Huddersfield offered a warning towards the end of the first half when Laurent Depoitre struck a shot against the bar.

The second half brought little in the way of chances but Sissoko scored his first Tottenham goal in added time to complete a resounding win.

Kane added: “It wasn’t straightforward, every game is tough in the Premier League, but we got off to a great start.”

The defeat was just Huddersfield’s second in seven Premier League games since winning promotion, but Terriers defender Mathias Jorgensen is looking to learn from the setback.

“We showed a little bit (in the second half) the way we want to play this game, then again we concede in the end and we can throw all that out again,” he said.

“We need to make sure we play collectively as a team, like we did in spells today, and erase all the mistakes.

“It sounds easier than it is to do, but that’s basically what we learned from today, you get punished.”

On the performance of Kane, he added: “He’s a goalscorer, and you give him half a chance and he will whip it into the top corner with his wrong foot.”
