Pochettino praises Spurs' patience and quality

Pochettino praises Spurs' patience and qualityā€¯

"It's the Champions League and we've been fighting in the last few years to be there and play this type of games".

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes Tottenham Hotspur will stroll to "a rather routine victory" over Huddersfield Town this weekend.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Mauricio Pochettino or David Wagner? One of those players is Son Heung-Min, whom the Standard writes is set to be offered a new contract by Spurs as a reward for his good performances this season.

Son heaped praise on England striker Kane, who has scored 35 goals in all competitions this season and has already equalled last term's tally.

"We got beaten by quality", he said. We tried to put against them effort, energy and fighting spirit and it was not enough and the second goals shows everything. You need to feel free and happy and enjoy the game.

"I think we were a bit unlucky", Son said.

Rounds of heavy rain and storms Sunday
The shallow cold airmass across the area continues to be very slow, and will continue to be the case through Saturday morning. Then Sunday afternoon we might get a break in the rain which will help to allow most of the early rains to drain off.

Tottenham star Heung-min Son spoke to reporters in the aftermath of his side's comfortable 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town at Wembley yesterday, and admitted that he and his teammates were sad because they did not score more goals, as quoted by the club's official website.

With one eye on Wednesday night's last-16 Champions League tie with Juventus, Tottenham slipped into second gear as they ran down the clock, but still Huddersfield were unable to seriously test their rearguard.

He added: "We wanted to press them high from the first second and this didn't work".

"We were fine for 40 minutes and tried to control them but needed to create more on the counter-attack", explained Benitez. At half-time, we fixed the situation and we dominated.

The visitors were trying to hit on the break but could barely bring the ball out of their own half, such was Tottenham's dominance, and their hard first 45 minutes was made worse by the loss of both Collin Quaner and Alex Pritchard to injury.

This was the first time he had faced his old side since leaving in the summer of 2016, but he was forced off just before the interval with a dead leg.
