10. Harry Is Kaning In The Goals

Tempting though it may be to use unfashionable Huddersfield Town as a makeweight in the "Is Harry Kane the greatest striker on the planet right now?" argument, they're a side of quiet but no less genuine quality, having made a very good account of themselves within their new Premier League surroundings.

Despite picking up valuable points against sides of veritable top flight quality over the last fortnight, they were no match for England's no. 9. His first goal was as much of an indictment of Huddersfield as it was an indication of his class, however; he pounced on an air shot to slot home at the near post within the first ten minutes. Strikers are often confused for bloodhounds in the metaphor stakes - but Kane really did sniff out this opportunity to add to his enviable goals tally. The second goal fell into the lap of Ben Davies, like a tired Chihuahua, but you can forgive the Huddersfield defence for the lapse in concentration; the slick passing sequences exchanged in the build-up were hypnotic in their first touch incision. Kane's second was altogether more unstoppable. It was a rocket.

A fortuitous Moussa Sissoko last-minute effort compounded Huddersfield's agony - their first stern test of mentality. If they can recover, bet the farm on them securing PL status for another year.
