Son Shines As Tottenham Move To Third

Son Shines As Tottenham Move To Third

The England striker has 35 goals in all competitions for Tottenham so far this season, and while he could not add to that tally in Saturday's win over Huddersfield, he still played a key role.

Tottenham next face Juventus in the Champions League last 16 at Wembley on Wednesday after a 2-2 draw in Turin.

Spurs, who have won their last seven games against Huddersfield in all competitions and are unbeaten in 34 league meetings with promoted teams, rarely looked troubled against a visiting side who lost the reverse fixture 4-0 in September.

"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.

David Wagner's men remain precariously above the bottom three, with just three point separating them from the drop zone; a result will be imperative for the West Yorkshire club in their bid to steer off relegation.

Fernando Llorente is expected to make way despite scoring a hat trick in midweek as Harry Kane will return to the side along with Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.

Son took a couple of touches, then nudged the ball beyond Lossl and then delivered a slightly mishit pass which went into the corner.

"We have said this before, and I think everybody is able to leave with their heads up and we will prepare for a very exciting game which we have next at our fortress of the John Smith's Stadium [against Swansea City next Saturday]".

There was an early injury... to a referee. Huddersfield have only scored 10 goals in 14 away league this season so it's unlikely tomorrow's game at Wembley will provide them with one of those crucial wins.

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

Tottenham: Lloris, Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dembele, Dier, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Kane. Jones' mobility was limited as he sat on a chair on the sidelines, from where he took up the duties of fourth official.
