Tottenham through Son Heung-min two first and second half goals crossed over Huddersfield with ease as they got confidence boost ahead of midweek champions league fixture against Italian side Juventus.
The victory for Tottenham closes the gap with third place United who have a game at hand to a point and two points behind second place Liverpool.
Speaking to the media after the two goals Son mentioned Wembley now feels like a home.
“We feel comfortable at Wembley, we know how we play here,” said Son after his ninth and 10th Premier League goals of the season. Of course it was going to take time but now we feel like we’re at home. We enjoy playing here and we try to get three points from every match.” Stated Son
Son could have created a third goal for Tottenham through a penalty after the South Korean was pulled from the waist by Huddersfield defender Terence Kongolo, unfortunately by stand-in referee Kevin Friend had a different lens.
Meanwhile prolific goal scorer Harry Kane remained stagnant with 24 goals and now tied with Liverpool forward Muhammad Salah who would score against Newcastle later in the night. The English man however tried but was stopped by Jonas Lossl.
Tom Ince on the other side forced Tottenham goal keeper Hugo Lloris into a fine save and besides that, the visitors posed less threat to Mauricio Pochettino’s strong side.
Huddersfield coach Wagner simply conceded defeat and his words sanction it. Below is what was quoted from his interview.
“We got beaten by quality – it’s a fair result”
Tottenham will now prepare to finish what they started in champions league three weeks ago when they tied with Juventus a two all draw, they will now return home to with less demand from them in terms of goals than Juventus on Wednesday at Wembley.
Meanwhile 15th place Huddersfield will play 13th place Swansea City with whom they share points on 10th March.
