Kane: “Probably the best month I’ve had”

“The gaffer drilled it into us that we needed to start sharp today,” Ben Davies.

Well, then, it’s mission accomplished for Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino as Spurs buried Huddersfield Town 4-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.

Spurs led 3-0 after 24 minutes, with one coming from Davies and a pair from irresistible Harry Kane. The latter will finish September with an almost absurd 11 goals for club and two more for England.

After the match, he was asked whether he’d had a better period in his career.

“Probably not,” Kane said. “It’s probably the best month I’ve had, especially after August. I feel confident when these boys are putting in good crosses and putting in good through balls. I’m just there to put them away. I’m delighted with the win. It’s been a great week for us.”

There’s some sort of reverse Green Day reference to make here about not waking Kane up for October. He’s been unconscious with his finishing, and Spurs are right in the thick of the race for a Premier League title.
