Comments:

League position: 11th Huddersfield Town conceded more goals in this game than in all of their six previous games in the Premier League (three). This was the Terriers' first home defeat in the Premier League. They had now scored only one goal in their last six league and cup games. Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner said: “Today was a result of our mistakes and Tottenham’s quality. They deserved to win this game. Maybe the result was a little bit high if you see the effort my players gave, but we made it too easy for them to score. It was a deserved result but the goals we gave away were too easy and we had a lack of concentration. We knew that if we wanted to get something from this game every individual had to be 100 percent in terms of concentration with no easy mistakes, but today we there were too many easy mistakes.”

League position: 3rd Tottenham Hotspur had now won each of their opening four league away games of a season for the first time since 1960-61, when they won their first eight and went on to win the title. Spurs had now set a new club record of six consecutive away wins in the Premier League. Harry Kane became only the second player in Premier League history to score two or more goals in three consecutive away games (also Dennis Bergkamp in 1997). He had now scored 13 goals for club and country in September 2017; his highest goals total in a month during his career. Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "It's so difficult to speak every three days about Harry Kane to find different words to describe him. He's fantastic. He's great in front of the goal. When we don't have the ball he is the first available to run, to fight, to work hard for the team. That mentality is fantastic and makes him one of the best strikers in the world. He's a very good example for everyone, a very good example for football, he is so humble."
