Lucas treble fires Tottenham into third

Share
Dele Alli has suffered a broken hand

The routine nature of the win will also have been comforting to Mauricio Pochettino, who was without the injured Harry Kane and Dele Alli and left man of the moment Son Heung-min on the bench ahead of the Champions League quarter-final second leg at Manchester City on Wednesday.

"Moura ripped the Terriers to shreds with a beautifully taken hat-trick".

Bidding to qualify for next season's Champions League via a top-four finish, Tottenham are one point clear of fourth-placed Chelsea, who face leaders Liverpool on Sunday. Of course Harry's a big miss for us but we have a big squad.

"This lad has been a bit-part player for Spurs since his arrival fro nbm PSG two seasons ago but he seems to make a significant impact on the game whenever he plays", Crooks wrote in his column for the BBC.

Wisecracking Tottenham fans are calling for Lucas Moura's young son to play for the club after he helped his father celebrate scoring the first ever hat-trick at Spurs' new stadium with a post-match kickabout.

"When you are so courageous, away at Tottenham, until the end, and you have three good possibilities to score, to be the first [away] team who could score here, it makes me proud in a way". We know that it's not easy to play here, because if you give them space, they can run you ragged, they can do everything with the ball.

Even in the absence of Kane, Alli and Son, it was an exercise of attack versus defence from the off as Spurs were camped in Huddersfield's half, but with 10 men behind the ball the visitors were initially hard to break down.

Lucas, a candidate to start against City, stole the show in the second half, controlling Eriksen's pass to smash home the third goal in the 87th minute. Moussa Sissoko dinked a pass into Lucas's path and the Brazilian took a touch before drilling a fierce shot across Hamer into the far corner.

After strolling past Huddersfield, Tottenham can expect two toughest tests against City in the Champions League and Premier League over the next week.

Three minutes later, Tottenham struck again.

We need to keep going like this, because if we can keep this intensity we can win a lot of things'.

When asked if he believes Kane could return this season, the manager said: "We'll see, there is five weeks, it is going to be hard". Goal difference can be decisive at the end of the season to achieve the top four.' Spurs made a host of changes on Saturday and Pochettino was pleased to give some fringe players a game.

Llorente was the talisman for the match, while Pochettino also brought in Kyle Walker-Peters, Ben Davies and Juan Forsyth for the clash in a 3-4-2-1 formation.

"But for me it's about how we play, how we solve the challenges they give us".

Referee: L Mason (Lancashire).
