Tottenham boss Pochettino: More to Kane's game than goals

Son seemed a little disappointed to be replaced by Erik Lamela with twenty minutes of the game to go, but Sherwood believes that Mauricio Pochettino may be saving the South Korean for bigger things.

Christian Eriksen stung Lossl's hands as Spurs pressure began to build, and they finally broke the deadlock 27 minutes in, with Son rounding the goalkeeper before drilling home left-footed after Dele Alli's pass sent him clean through on goal.

Mauricio Pochettino hailed how Tottenham have conquered the "difficult feeling" of playing home games at Wembley as they won their seventh straight game here, ahead of Wednesday's game against Juventus.

"I think Son is one of the players that you always expect fantastic things (from)", said Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Huddersfield - who were again without Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy (knee) - remain just three points outside the relegation zone with nine matches remaining.

He was rewarded with another classy performance that extended their unbeaten run to 17 fixtures and in which they posed a goal-threat throughout.

Eriksen then saw a deflected free-kick come back off the post and hit a fiercely struck low drive that forced Lossl into action once more.

With a two-goal advantage and the momentum, Pochettino gradually substituted Son, Mousa Dembele and Alli, suggesting all three can expect to start against Juve.

"We have said this before, and I think everybody is able to leave with their heads up and we will prepare for a very exciting game which we have next at our fortress of the John Smith's Stadium [against Swansea City next Saturday]".

Pochettino has also tinkered with his defence despite keeping a clean sheet against the Eagles, with Jan Vertonghen coming back into the side, as Eric Dier moves further forward to occupy the role of Victor Wanyama, who drops to the bench.

Due to an injury to ref Michael Jones, fourth official Kevin Friend took charge of the game. David Wagner will turn to both players today, as his side looks to carry a goal threat on the break at Wembley.
