Son fires Spurs to 2-0 win over Huddersfield

MAURICIO POCHETTINO was clearly very satisfied with his Tottenham Hotspur side after a brace from Heung-Min Son helped them eased past Huddersfield Town in a one-sided Premier League encounter at Wembley Stadium.

The battle between Son and Erik Lamela for the third attacking midfield spot in Mauricio Pochettino's first-choice line-up has become an interesting one, while Lucas Moura is increasingly becoming a viable option too as he builds up his fitness and continues to gel with his team-mates.

The Korea Republic global struck in each half to give the home side all three points at Wembley and move them into third in the table, at least temporarily.

Son was the star of the show as the South Korean took his tally for the season to 15 goals with a pair of calm finishes either side of half-time to extend Tottenham's unbeaten run in all competitions to 17 games. "We could have scored many goals".

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.

So Spurs will be in great home form for the Juventus game and Pochettino told his players to enjoy such a big match, as important as it is.

It took a while for the national stadium to feel like home at the start of this campaign, with Tottenham collecting just two points from a possible nine in their first three Premier League matches in Brent.

The 25-year-old headed in his second after the break to make the win safe, as Spurs climbed a point above Liverpool, who faced Newcastle United later in the day.

However, they have now won 11 of their last 12 games there, drawing the other, and the aggregate score across those 12 contests is 36-5.

Here are the impressive player ratings from today's home win. "I try my best and try to be ready at all times".

And Crooks, looking ahead to the return Champions League Round of 16 leg against Juventus, added: "He actually provides Pochettino with a problem now, because does he play him?"
