Predicted Spurs line up to face Huddersfield

039;Napoli play the best football in Europe'- Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino lavishes praise on Serie A leaders

- Since a 1-4 loss to Manchester City in December, Tottenham have remained unbeaten in 11 Premier League games, winning eight - the longest current run in the division.

Huddersfield host relegation rivals Swansea and Crystal Palace in their next two games. But Son was replaced by Lamela after 70 minutes to a well-earned standing ovation, suggesting his matchwinning performance has made his manager think twice.

Liverpool and Tottenham put the squeeze on Chelsea in the race for Champions League qualification next season after chalking up 2-0 victories in the English Premier League on Saturday. Jan is also your player of the month for February.

Huddersfield got play underway and immediately attacked and Serge Aurier had to make a crucial interception inside the opening minute.

But within nine second-half minutes, the game was over as a contest.

But it was Son, who was on fire whenever he received the ball, who got the opener - and what an opener it was.

Kane went close with a miscued volley from an Eriksen corner, Alli almost found a way through after some neat work by Moussa Sissoko to create space, and Erik Lamela also hovered dangerously every time the ball went forward.

Son's second goal after half-time owed plenty to Kane, who whipped in a cross that David Beckham would have been proud of, which Son met on the bounce with a cushioned header into the corner.

The Tottenham Hotspur manager turned 46 yesterday. Jones' mobility was limited as he sat on a chair on the sidelines, from where he took up the duties of fourth official.

Jonas Lossl made a fine save on Harry Kane, and the latter won a risky free kick in the 19th minute.

Spurs nearly took the lead again two minutes later when Eriksen's 25-yard free kick hit the Huddersfield wall and curled towards goal, but hit the post and went wide. It is cultural. Maybe in February it is going to happen.

Lossl made another good stop on Kane in the 38th minute, collecting the well-protected rebound.

The breakthrough came just before halftime. Undoubtedly Pochettino's men will be frustrated that they didn't add to their advantage.

Tottenham were nearly made to pay for that missed chance when Ince was played in on goal in the 53rd minute, but Lloris parried his 20-yard effort and it remained 1-0.

Son scored a terrific goal to give Spurs a well-earned lead, dancing around Lossl to finish a very well-worked team goal.

Despite the spectre of a huge Champions League last 16, second leg with Juventus to come on Wednesday, Mauricio Pochettino named his strongest available side.

Spurs almost made it three with 11 minutes left, but Kane fired wide after Eriksen had picked him out perfectly from a corner. They go in at 2-2.

Meanwhile Tottenham, just like last season, are approaching the business end of the season bang in form.

Huddersfield Town: Lossl; Kongolo, Schindler, Zanka, Hadergjonaj; Williams, Hogg (Depoitre 83), van La Parra, Quaner (Ince 33), Pritchard (Billing 45); Mounie.
