Son scores twice in Spurs win

Tottenham defeated Huddersfield Town 2-0 at Wembley in a very comfortable for Mauricio Pochettino’s team. South Korea international, Heung-min Son scored twice as Spurs strengthened their stronghold on the Top 4, moving 5 points ahead of Chelsea who play Manchester City on Sunday. The newly promoted side had no answer for what Spurs threw at them, as they would no doubt be happy with the scoreline. Son put Tottenham ahead in the 27 th minute when he was player through by Dele Alli.

He showed composure to round The Terriers goalkeeper, Jonas Lossl before passing the ball into an empty net. The second goal arrived shortly after half-time when Son expertly guided a header into the corner from Harry Kane's brilliant cross. The result was the perfect way to warm up for midweek’s Champions League Round of 16 clash against Juventus, as the result in that tie is delicately poised at 2-2. Huddersfield manager, David Wagner was bidding for a third consecutive league win, but they offered nothing to suggest that they could upset the home team.

Pochettino made two changes from the team that defeated Crystal Palace as Son and Vertonghen replaced Wanyama while Huddersfield named an unchanged Xi. The result sees Mauricio Pochettino collect his 100 th Premier League win, and the first non-European gaffer to do so. Tottenham are now unbeaten in 11 league games since losing 4-1 away at The Etihad at the hands of Manchester City back in December. Heung-min Son has been directly involved in 13 goals in his last 11 Premier League appearances at Wembley (nine goals, four assists).

Spurs play next in the Premier League at Bournemouth while Huddersfield host Swansea on Saturday.
