The England worldwide scored twice in the opening 23 minutes, either side of Ben Davies' second, to take his September goal tally for club and country to 13.
Huddersfield will provide a different type of challenge to that of Newcastle, Everton, West Ham and APOEL from the perspective of the Terriers not having much pressure on their shoulders to force the game, a style of play which has flummoxed Pochettino and his players at Wembley.
Eight minutes later, Spurs doubled their lead thanks to some attractive passing and just a smattering of luck.
The hosts' day went from bad to worse in the 24th minute, with Kane furthering the talk of his world class status, picking up the ball on the edge of the area and bending a delicious left-footed shot beyond Lössl. Other than that, Harry Kane has been in incredible form and he should be able to add to his goal tally in this game. Pochettino's side ran out deserved winners, sitting in third place in the league before the 3pm kick-offs began. "I think he can improve a lot, but like Harry they're showing very good performances every week". Moussa Sissoko added a late fourth.
Kane's first goal demonstrated his work-rate, awareness and clinical finishing as he took advantage of hesitant defending from Huddersfield, winning the ball and bursting goalwards before slotting past Jonas Lossl.
Kane's second goal? Absolutely sublime.
Kane's first half goal was a deceptively hard finish. Their start to life in the Premier League had been about as good as can be expected before this game, with only one defeat, two wins and four clean sheets from their first six games.
"I'd like to see him stay there long-term".
Tottenham: Hugo Lloris: 6, Toby Alderweireld: 7, Davinson Sanchez: 7, Jan Vertonghen: 7, Kieran Trippier: 8, Ben Davies: 8, Eric Dier: 7, Harry Winks: 8, Christian Eriksen: 8, Dele Alli: 7, Harry Kane: 9. Sissoko got himself two chances on goal in his 15 minutes on the pitch, he wasted his first with a tame shot, but just about took his second with the aid of a deflection after Davies found him with a great ball.
