Huddersfield vs Tottenham Hotspur - English Premier League

Carragher compares Lukaku, Morata and Kane to Messi and Ronaldo

Tottenham Hotspur's Ben Davies scores his side's second goal.

After bidding farewell to his customary barren August, Kane has now scored 13 times in his last eight games for club and country, clinically finishing a counter-attack in the ninth minute then bending home left-footed with a cracker from 20 yards.

It's also worth mentioning another theme of the discussion around Tottenham this season. "Until today they only conceded three goals and we scored four", Pochettino told Sky Sports. Davies also defended really well though with him keeping the likes of Thomas Ince on the Huddersfield wing very quiet. A little counterintuitively, it might be good news for them that only two of those are at home.

Stoke have quietly begun to go off the boil, having not won a Premier League game since beating Arsenal in August and having not led in any game at all since their 4-0 win over Rochdale in the League Cup. Madrid have previously conducted successful negotiations with Daniel Levy for Luka Modric and Gareth Bale in the past, and while they know they can not prise Kane away from London this season, Perez is reportedly hopeful that a massive €125 million bid will tempt Spurs into selling.

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

That was an indicator that the Yorkshire club were not going to roll over meekly and they stuck at their task well in the second half while the visitors took their foot off the gas. This is nearly certainly a blip, a minor dip in what has thus far been a terrific career, but for both England and Spurs, the sooner he snaps out of it the better. The Spurs, which have finished in the top three of the league standings in the last two seasons, will be keen to make their way back to the familiar zone with the early kick-off game.

As expected, Tottenham Hotspur got the better of Huddersfield Town away from home at the John Smith's Stadium in the Premier League. Wagner will not be happy with this, but as far as any 4-0 defeat can be shaken off, this is one that's best to be ignored. This was a team that had ridden its luck perhaps more than any other in Championship history. The hosts looked unstoppable for much of the game, maintaining their 100% record on the road in all competitions this season.

"Can he help us unlock defences?"

But after Rajiv van La Parra's goalbound shot had been blocked by Eric Dier, Tottenham broke forward and scored with their first chance. 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.

Subs: Son, Vorm, Nkoudou, Sissoko, Llorente, Foyth, Walker-Peters.
