Result: Harry Kane double delight as Spurs brush aside struggling Huddersfield

Just like last season, the England striker enjoyed his trip to West Yorkshire.

Harry Kane's first-half double secured a routine 2-0 victory for Tottenham and extended Huddersfield's winless Premier League start to seven matches.

Kane headed home against the run of play midway through the first period and converted a 34th-minute penalty as Mauricio Pochettino's side took control before cruising to their fourth league win on the road this season.

It was more of the same medicine after the meeting of these teams at the John Smith's Stadium last season when Kane struck twice in a 4-0 win for Tottenham.

Huddersfield have now failed to score in their last six home league games – four of them this season – to equal a club record set during the 1971/72 season when they were last relegated from the top flight.

Tottenham, without injured midfielders Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli, found themselves under early pressure but almost snatched a seventh-minute lead when Danny Rose's header bounced narrowly wide.

Huddersfield were almost caught out again soon after, but goalkeeper Jonas Lossl blocked Kane's effort after another swift counter-attack from the visitors.

Despite enjoying a greater share of first-half possession, Town's efforts to force an opening in the final third were comfortably snuffed out.

Alex Pritchard, recalled to the Huddersfield starting line-up against his former club, worked tirelessly up front alongside the equally durable Laurent Depoitre, but to minimum effect and Tottenham struck the opening goal in the 25th minute.

Huddersfield defender Terence Kongolo's excellent challenge thwarted Lucas Moura in the penalty area, but the ball was recycled to Kieran Trippier and his cross was headed neatly home by Kane.

Kongolo stayed down after his last-ditch tackle and was carried off on a stretcher before being replaced by Florent Hadergjonaj.

Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga then produced a flying save to keep out Chris Lowe's thunderbolt shot, but Pochettino's side took full command by going two up in the 34th minute.

Rose was adjudged to have been pulled back by Hadergjonaj after bursting into the box, referee Craig Pawson did not hesitate in awarding a penalty, and Kane converted his fifth goal of the season from the spot.

Depoitre went agonisingly close to ending the Terriers' home goal drought when he crashed a super volley against the underside of the crossbar just before half-time, but Lady Luck refuses to smile on the West Yorkshire club.

Christopher Schindler's well-timed tackle denied Moura a shot on goal early in the second period as Tottenham, orchestrated by substitute Harry Winks, dominated the ball and slipped into cruise control.

Town enjoyed their best spell with 25 minutes left, but Gazzaniga easily gathered Pritchard's rushed effort after he had combined with Depoitre and then held Philip Billing's header.

Lowe curled a free-kick inches wide and then Gazzaniga was forced into a brilliant save, turning away Town substitute Isaac Mbenza's rasping drive.

Tottenham held firm to climb into the top four, while Town were left wondering where that elusive first win will come from.
