Spurs' fourth consecutive Premier League away win, and sixth in total, takes them third ahead of the 3pm matches. "I feel good, I feel confident when these boys are up the pitch putting in good crosses and through-balls".

The Belgian, who underwent surgery in a bid to solve a long-standing foot problem in May, reported after this month's League Cup game against Barnsley that he had an ankle problem.

Both sides have been solid on the defensive front this season, and we don't see too many goals in this fixture.

Huddersfield's game plan was to try and actually play with Spurs - press them high, stay organized at the back, and try and hit them on the counter.

The only downside for Spurs was a second-half booking for Dele Alli for simulation after he went down following a challenge from Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.

The Terriers, who are now winless in five Premier League matches, nearly pulled one back before the break but Laurent Depoitre's strike from 20 yards rattled the crossbar. Yet again Kane had proven himself a limited-season wonder, let's all laugh at that because it's amusing.

It took Ronaldo 196 matches to score those while Kane has got to the mark in 73 fewer games.

Pochettino also said that Kane should not be compared to Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi as the England global was a completely different player. He's in an wonderful moment, he's scoring goals, his energy is fantastic - how he presses, how he works without the ball. They'll be able to shrug and move on, knowing there wasn't a huge amount they could have done about it: had this come in their first game or two, that might not have been the case. Although Huddersfield will look to mark him to ensure minimal damage, the striker now has the capability to wreak havoc upon even the strongest of teams.

"It's sure for Saturday it's impossible for him to play", said Pochettino. "We hope it won't be a big problem but I think he needs time to recover".

Kane now has 13 goals for Tottenham Hotspur and England in September including a Champions League hat-trick.

Kane was yet again at the forefront of Spurs' dominance, continuing his sensational goalscoring form at the John Smith's Stadium after his maiden European treble.

"I am so happy with everyone because we played in the Champions League in Cyprus, arrived late and came here and showed energy, so that performance was fantastic for us".
