Tottenham warm up for Juve by beating Huddersfield in EPL

Tottenham boss Pochettino sceptical about winter break

Spurs rotated in the FA Cup and coped well in the wintry conditions but manager Mauricio Pochettino seems set to recall his big guns for their next clash, despite a looming Champions League last-16 second leg clash with Juventus. This month, Harry scored his 100th, 101st and 102nd Premier League goals, making it 24 for the season, and 35 club goals for the second season running. The only time they were caught short at the back was for Son's opener, when Spurs counter-attacked rapidly, and there was little they could do about his second, given the quality of Kane's cross.

Kane went close with a miscued volley from an Eriksen corner, Alli almost found a way through after some neat work by Moussa Sissoko to create space, and Erik Lamela also hovered dangerously every time the ball went forward.

With seven played the same duo were involved again as the England midfield drifted away from a Huddersfield rival on the left, but his through ball to Kane was just in front of the striker.

Tottenham Hotspur's South Korean striker Son Heung-Min celebrates with teammates scoring the team's second goal during the football match against Huddersfield at Wembley Stadium on March 3, 2018.

Huddersfield's chances of defeating Tottenham for the first time since 1956 were dealt a blow when Dele Alli sent Son racing clear of the defense to round goalkeeper Jonas Lossl for the opening goal in the 27th minute.

There was an early injury... to a referee. Undoubtedly Pochettino's men will be frustrated that they didn't add to their advantage.

"This goal said everything about the teams which met today".

The result moves Tottenham up to third - at least until Liverpool play tomorrow - and was done at such a pace that they were able to play with one eye on Wednesday nights Champions League show down versus Juventus.

It was after the impressive Christian Eriksen had seen his free-kick headed against his own post by Mathias Jorgensen that Son gave Spurs the lead.

Kane and Lamela both tested Lossl in the final exchanges as the Lilywhites went in search of a third, but it wasn't forthcoming and they had to settle for a 2-0 success.

Meanwhile Tottenham, just like last season, are approaching the business end of the season bang in form. It started with an Eriksen pick and fine vision by Eric Dier.

HUDDERSFIELD TOWN: Lossl, Kongolo, Hogg (Depoitre, 82) van La Parra, Williams, Pritchard (Billing, 45) Quaner (Ince, 32) Mounie, Zanka, Schindler, Hadergjonaj.
