FT

FULL TIME

And that's that!

Heung-Min Son's double is enough to move Tottenham into third, a point behind second-placed Manchester United.

90'+1 

The win will move Spurs into third, a point above fourth-placed Liverpool - who host Newcastle in Saturday’s late kick-off – while Huddersfield drop to 15th, three points above the relegation zone.

90'

Lamela receives the ball and suddenly Tottenham are in a three-vs-three situation. He twists and turns and delivers a cross that Lossl palms behind at his near post.

Meanwhile, there will be THREE minutes of added time to play.

88' 

Moura releases Kane, but the talisman's shot lacks conviction and Lossl makes an easy save.

85' 

Kane, yet to get on the scoresheet this afternoon, tries to find the top corner with a curled effort but Hadergjona gets the block in.

80' 

Huddersfield muster their second shot at goal this afternoon but Williams' effort from distance is comfortable for Lloris.

79' 

WIDE!

Kane gets away from his marker too easily but he fails to hit the target from Eriksen's corner.

78' 

Eriksen charges forward with Alli and Kane either side of him. The Dane passes to Alli, but he's forced away from goal and can only win a corner.

Dembele looked like he took a knock around 15 minutes ago and he is finally taken off, he is replaced by Mousa Sissoko.

74' 

Tottenham have had 80 per cent of the ball in the second period. I can't remember such a one-sided match, certainly in terms of possession.

73' 
72' 

Spurs have slipped into second gear and look content to see this one out without too much drama. They are stroking the ball very comfortably in midfield.

There will be no hat-trick for Son today, the 25-year-old is replaced by Lamela for the remaining 20 minutes.

68' 

Excellent defending from Davies as he makes a block to prevent Williams a clear shot on goal.

67' 
66' 

Right on cue I spot Lamela warming up...

65' 

Surprised Pochettino hasn't made a change in personnel just yet. He has a strong bench, with the likes of Lamela, Moura and Rose lying in wait, but with 65 minutes gone Spurs have yet to make a substitute.

63'

Kane is now the first Tottenham player to be directly involved in 25 goals in the Premier League this season: 23 goals and two assists.

61' 

Dembele seems to be struggling and signals to the bench to indicate he is having a problem. He remains on the pitch for now, though.

GOAL RULED OUT!

Eriksen's swings in a cross from a free-kick and Vertonghen, on his return from injury, heads it home.

He was an offside position though and the goal is correctly chalked off.

55' 

Surely no way back for Huddersfield now.

It was a sublime cross from Kane to create the goal.

GOAL! Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield (Son)

A fantastic goal on the counter-attack from Spurs!

Kane drops to the right channel to receive the ball, he holds it up, takes a glance and picks out Son with an inch-perfect cross! The South Korean heads it first-time past Lossl with the ball nestling into the corner.

53'

CHANCE!

A terrific save from Lloris denies Ince's venomous effort from 20 yards! Much better from Huddersfield in the second half.

52' 

Looking at the replay and it was a stonewall penalty, but Son received the ball in an offside position. So, no penalty I guess?!

51'

PENALTY APPEAL!

Dier's volley falls to the feet of Son. The South Korean delays his shot and then goes to ground under the challenge Kongolo! Kevin Friend says no penalty, though.

50' 

Kevin Friend spots an infringement as Huddersfield deliver the corner and the chance is gone.

49' 

Vertonghen loses possession on the edge of his own box as Huddersfield's high pressing causes some issues for Tottenham. Billing crosses and Alli can only knock it behind for a corner, the Terriers' first of the afternoon.

48' 

Dier is found in space on the left and he swings a cross to the near post. Kane is there to meet it but his first-time shot is deflected behind by Schlinder for a corner.

HALF TIME

Heung-Min Son's 27th minute opener gives Spurs a well-deserved lead at the interval.

Tottenham were the dominant force throughout a one-sided first-half but may be disappointed only a goal separates the sides at the break.

45'+1

We are into the first of two added minutes.

Pritchard is eventually replaced, with Philip Billing taking his place.

44' 

Alli breaks into the penalty area and has team mates in the middle but his cross is blocked by Schlinder.

43' 

As it stands, Spurs would move into third and FIVE points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea. You sense this would be an important victory, if they can hold on for the three points.

42' 

Pritchard is still limping and I would be surprised to see him emerging for the second period.

40' 

Five minutes until the half-time break and one would imagine David Wagner cannot wait to hear the whistle...

39' 
38' 

Huddersfield are working incredibly hard but seeing very little of the ball. Spurs are playing with a lot of confidence and the second goal doesn't seem too far away...

37' 

Alli's beautifully-weighted pass to Kane sets the England international up for a shot... but Lossl gets down quickly to make a tricky save.

36' 

Son receives the ball on the left-side of the penalty area and has options in the middle. He gets a shot away instead but can only find the side netting.

Slightly selfish on this occasion from the goalscorer.

35'

Huddersfield have scored only 10 goals in 14 away league games this season, with four of those coming at Watford in December.

And they're struggling in attack at the moment.

34' 

He's having quite the season, Son...

33' 

Quaner wasn't pleased as he headed straight down the tunnel and didn't look up to acknowledge Wagner.

Meanwhile Pritchard, against his former club, is struggling with a dead leg.

Huddersfield with a rare foray forward. Van La Parra races down the left channel, cuts inside before dragging a shot well wide.

28' 

Six shots on target compared to Huddersfield's zero and with 71 per cent of possession, Spurs most definitely deserve the lead.

GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield (Son)

Spurs, and Son, grab the goal they deserve! The South Korean has been excellent and now he breaks the deadlock.

Schindler tries to play the offside trap and gets it badly wrong as Alli picks out Son in acres of space behind the defence, he coolly rounds Lossl before slotting into an empty net.

26' 

Good goalkeeping from Huddersfield's goalkeeper Lossl. Eriksen nutmegs Hogg and fires a low shot from the edge of the box but Lossl gets down smartly to make the save.

25' 

Huddersfield are offering little in attack, mainly because they are sitting so deep. It's almost a back-six in defence.

23' 
22'

Huddersfield camped deep inside their own half. They haven't kept a clean sheet in seven league outings.

Alli goes into the referee's book for a cynical foul on Quaner.

19'

OFF THE POST!

Tottenham win a free-kick, 30 yards out but very much in Eriksen territory. He shoots, it takes a wicked deflection, wrong-footing Lossl, but it spins away from goal, whacks the post and goes out of play.

17'

SAVE!

Magnificent from Son. He turns away from his marker on the left channel and then slides the ball into the feet of Kane in the six-yard box, he tries a first-time shot which is excellently saved by Lossl.

16' 

Spurs force a corner, which Davies takes. His in-swinger is taken down by Kane who tries to turn it goalwards but Huddersfield manage to scramble it clear.

15' 

It's been a lively start but Wagner should be relatively pleased with the start his Huddersfield side have made. They are defending in numbers and restricting Spurs to only half chances.

13' 

Mike Jones, with a chair in hand, is ready to take up the role of fourth official.

12' 

Eriksen delivers the corner to the near post but Huddersfield clear quite comfortably.

11' 

Aurier slides a cross into the feet of Alli on the right side of the box. He tries to cross but it's blocked by Schlindler and Spurs have a corner.

10' 

That obviously means there is no fourth official at the moment...

9' 

Michael Jones was supposed to be today's referee but injured his calf in the warm-up, meaning fourth official Kevin Friend had stepped up.

8' 

Spurs beginning to get into their stride. They have not lost in 33 Premier League games against promoted sides, winning the last 15 in a row (W31, D2).

6' 

Alli and Kane nearly combine once more, with the former cutting in from the channel and trying to release the latter but the pass is slightly overcooked.

5' 

CLOSE!

Kane drills the ball across the face of goal, searching for Alli at the back post, but his England team mate just can't reach it.

4' 

Son does terrifically well to wriggle free past a number of defenders and works the ball wide to Aurier. The wing-back swings the ball into a dangerous area, looking for Kane, but Huddersfield hack the danger clear.

3'

STAT

Spurs are unbeaten in 16 games in all competitions - their best run since a similar streak between December 1998 to March 1999 under George Graham.

2' 

The visitors make a really positive start, Quaner spreading the ball to the right channel and a low drilled cross into a dangerous area is cut out by Aurier.

1'

KICK-OFF!

Huddersfield get us underway on a freezing cold afternoon at Wembley.

14:55 

The players are kitted out and making their way out onto the pitch.

Tottenham will move to third with a victory, ahead of Liverpool who take on Newcastle in Saturday's late kick-off.

Huddersfield could move into the top 10 if they can pull off a shock win and other results go their way.

So, plenty for both sides to play for.

14:50 

How do you see this one going? Do you agree with Eurosport columnist Paul Parker that Spurs will be too strong for the Terriers?

14:40

PRE-MATCH STAT

If Harry Kane scores this afternoon, he'll be the third player to have scored 25+ goals in three consecutive Premier League campaigns, after Alan Shearer (four seasons between 93-94 and 96-97) and Thierry Henry (three seasons between 03-04 to 05-06).

Would you bet against him?

Wagner: "We only have unbelievably positive memories when we think about Wembley.

"It's less than a year ago that we had one of the most successful days in the club's history. Now we are back.

"The problem is that it's against Tottenham, one of the best teams in the Premier League, or maybe in the world at the minute.

"We will fight for every single yard, and sometimes surprises happen in football. We will work on it."

14:30 

Huddersfield and Wagner return to Wembley for the first time since their play-off victory over Reading back in May last year.

Few gave the Terriers any chance of retaining their place in the Premier League but in March they are holding their own in 14th, having won their last two matches.

14:25 

Pochettino: "Both our eyes are focused on the game against Huddersfield. That for us is the most important game. It's an important three points for the battle for the top four.

"We cannot think of the game after. We need to be focused and ready to compete because it will be tough. Huddersfield are in a position where they need points too. For us the most important thing is tomorrow."

14:20 

Spurs have won their last four league matches at Wembley and are 16 games unbeaten in all competitions.

Mauricio Pochettino insists his side remain fully focused on the Premier League, despite the champions of Italy coming to town on Wednesday for an epic European night under the lights.

14:15 

Huddersfield have won back-to-back games and manager David Wagner keeps faith in the side that defeated West Brom last time out.

Collin Quaner makes his second successive start for the first time this season.

14:10 

Jan Vertonghen is a surprise inclusion in Tottenham’s starting XI. The Belgian defender returned to training this week but wasn’t expected to be risked with Juventus lying in wait in a crucial Champions League second-leg clash in midweek.

There’s just one other change from the side that beat Crystal Palace 1-0 last weekend, as Heung-Min Son replaces Erik Lamela.

There is no place in the squad for Fernando Llorente despite his hat-trick against Rochdale on Wednesday.
