Huddersfield Town are still without a home goal in the Premier League after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday.

Harry Kane scored twice as Tottenham warmed up for a Champions League clash against Barcelona with a comfortable 2-0 Premier League win at Huddersfield Town.

Kane struck twice in Spurs' 4-0 win in this fixture last season and although Mauricio Pochettino's side could not match that result on Saturday, the striker's first-half double was enough to seal victory.

Spurs were without Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris due to injury, but Kane stepped up with a header and a penalty to follow his spot-kick in a 2-1 win at Brighton and Hove Albion in their last league fixture.

Huddersfield are bottom of the table with David Wagner's men still waiting for their first home league goal of the season, while Spurs move up to fourth.

Kane charged through on goal for the game's first big chance in the 10th minute, but Jonas Lossl was quickly off his line to smother the England captain's attempted chip.

Huddersfield were regularly exposed by long balls from the back and another led to the opening goal, Kane profiting with a header after Lucas Moura fed Kieran Trippier to cross.

Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga had to make a fine save low to his left to push away a long-range Chris Lowe drive that swerved dramatically, but Spurs quickly doubled their lead.

Danny Rose went down under a challenge from Florent Hadergjonaj and Kane duly sent Lossl the wrong way from the penalty spot, with Laurent Depoitre unlucky to see a superb volley crash back off the crossbar as Huddersfield sought a response before the break.

Pochettino withdrew Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele at half-time, with an eye on Barca, and Lucas had Spurs' best chance to extend their lead, the Brazilian blazing over the crossbar in the 64th minute.
