How Tottenham must line up when they host Huddersfield on Saturday
Tottenham Hotspur will look to cement their spot in the top four of the Premier League when they host Huddersfield Town at Wembley on Saturday.
Spurs had spent some time outside of the Champions League qualification spots after struggling to hit the heights they did last season, but a late 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park last weekend combined with Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat against Manchester United saw them climb up to fourth.
Harry Kane’s 88th-minute goal proved to be the difference between the two teams in south London, and Mauricio Pochettino will know that his team have a potential opportunity to increase the gap between them and Antonio Conte’s side into the latest round of fixtures given the Blues face a tough-looking trip to runaway leaders Manchester City on Sunday.
The north London outfit followed up three points with a comfortable 6-1 win against Rochdale in their fifth round FA Cup replay during the week, and they will hope to make it six wins on the bounce at Wembley in all competitions against the Terriers, who are just three points above the relegation zone and in desperate need of points themselves.
Pochettino was forced to make changes to his team against Palace because of injury with Jan Vertonghen missing out, while Erik Lamela and Serge Aurier also replaced Kieran Trippier and Son Heung-Min respectively in the starting line-up.
Following some impressive individual performances in the thrashing of Rochdale the Argentine boss may well be considering making some alterations against David Wagner’s men.
