Tottenham's victory briefly took them up to third place in the table, above Liverpool - although the Reds reclaimed the position with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United on Saturday evening.

The Wembley factor was cited as one of the key reasons for Spurs' failure in Europe last season as they crashed out of both the Champions League and Europa League at the first time of asking.

The Korean striker scored either side of the half with two very well taken goals.

"Of course, you need a good mentality and willingness to work".

If you include the free kick he won against Juventus, which was dispatched by Christian Eriksen, Alli has now assisted five goals in Spurs' last five games.

Pochettino, who had recalled the fit-again Jan Vertonghen and dropped Fernando Llorente despite his hat-trick against Rochdale mid-week, started his strongest available team in preparation for Wednesday's visit of Juventus, when Spurs could reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League. "We have fought a lot to try to be there and play in these sort of games". We've highlighted him a few times now.


"Son came off, and he was on two goals, but in a weird sort of way he'll be pleased to have seen his number come up because that tells me he's going to play in the Champions League", Sherwood said on Goals on Sunday, as quoted by HITC.

Hugo Lloris saved well from Tom Ince on the break but Huddersfield's hopes of a point were extinguished 54 minutes in, as Son headed Kane's bouncing cross from the right beyond the static Lossl and into the net.

Son was in a class of his own all afternoon and it was little surprise he showed more poise than his teammates to finally open the scoring 27 minutes in.

But Wagner said: "We've got beaten by a quality side; we met quality, they showed quality but today we showed fighting spirit, effort, attitude and they were only too good for us".

However, seconds later the game was over as a contest when Son stooped to head home at the back post.

As you can see below, the Englishman latched onto a misplaced pass and seemed to be going nowhere before delivering a flawless long-range cross from which Son headed home.
