Son double leads Tottenham past Huddersfield in EPL

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.

By the end of this game against Huddersfield, Pochettino was able to substitute his goalscorer, Heung-min Son, yet another one of his match-winners who have taken the club into Europe's elite.

Son heaped praise on England striker Kane, who has scored 35 goals in all competitions this season and has already equalled last term's tally.

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

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes turning his side's temporary Wembley home into a fortress can ensure progress to the Champions League quarter-finals when they host Juventus on Wednesday.

However, the Argentine hinted Son had done enough to make himself undroppable, replacing him 20 minutes from time to keep him fresh for midweek.

"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. "Three points today means we're in a very good position in the table", BBC Sport quotes Pochettino as saying.

In the 54th minute from space on the right wing, Kane whipped a masterful cross into the area that Son ran onto at the back post and met with a well-timed header Lossl had little chance to save.

Spurs, who did not win in their first three league games there, are a point behind second-placed Manchester United.

And Wagner said: "The seconds before the second goal shows everything".

"Our team that fought, tried everything, that showed attitude and effort, and another team which has shown top quality".

Kane had a late header disallowed for offside after the impressive Christian Eriksen found him with a corner.

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.
