Kane matches Ronaldo & Messi as stunning September ends with brace

Tottenham Hotspur's Argentine head coach Mauricio Pochettino congratulates his English striker Harry Kane for his hat-trick as he is substituted during the UEFA Champions League

Harry Kane starred for Tottenham Hotspur against Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Saturday.

Kane's prolific form is drawing all manner of comparisons but one statistic suggests he is now among the very best.

Huddersfield Town, on the other hand, have fared pretty well so far in their first top-flight campaign in 46 years.

It was then 2-0 soon after.

Dembele has missed the last two matches with an ankle problem and has not been passed fit despite Pochettino being hopeful earlier this week that he would be able to take part.

Record signing Steve Mounié's heel injury is taking longer than expected but he could be in line for a return to action against Swansea City after the global break.

Huddersfield will need to successfully break the channel between Alderweireld and Trippier to disrupt Spurs.

Mauricio Pochettino says he is proud of everyone at the club for getting a good result against Huddersfield after their midweek game in Cyprus. Kane poked home an acrobatic mid-air ball for what looked like his hat trick a few minutes before halftime, but the goal was called back for offside, and Dele Alli juked a Terriers defender and plonked a ball off the post.

Spurs come into tomorrow's game on the back of a comfortable 3-0 win over Cypriot side Apoel Nicosia in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Welsh worldwide left back pushed Kane very far for the man of the match award with a great display of how to play the wing back role.

In the 16th minute, Spurs doubled their lead, Delle Ali and Kane linking up well before Lowe again let his side again by inadvertently passing the ball to Ben Davies, allowing the left-back to race into the box and finished as emphatically as a centre-forward. Having earned a point at home against the immediate former Premier League champions (Leicester City), the hosts will head into the fixture in a high spirit of not disappointing the home fans. The only previous promoted side to do this were Blackburn Rovers who kept a fifth in their seventh match of 1992/93.

The stage is set for Kane to grab the spotlight following a month wherein he's been in a lot of headlines for his fiery form. His second goal made it 3-0 and came in the 23rd minute, with Kane turning his marker off a throw-in and calmly curling into the far corner from outside the area. 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.

Christian Eriksen has improved his health from sickness and ready to play the match against Huddersfield.
