Son shines for Spurs to make case for Juventus start

Tottenham boss Pochettino sceptical about winter break

Tottenham boss Pochettino sceptical about winter break

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. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

Spurs, who did not win in their first three league games there, are a point behind second-placed Manchester United, who play at Crystal Palace on Monday and five ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea, who visit runaway leaders Manchester City on Sunday. Find out by following our live matchcast.

Tottenham could have had an early second half penalty when Son went down in the box under Terence Kongolo's challenge, but Kevin Friend waved away the appeals.

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.

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

Jones' mobility was limited as he sat on a chair on the sidelines, from where he was instead the fourth official, and an announcement went over the Wembley tannoy requesting qualified referees, before another followed insisting the "situation was in hand".

Vertonghen thought he'd nodded a third shortly after, only for an assistants flag to swiftly conclude the Spurs celebrations, while Kane's volley fizzed the wrong side of the post after Eriksen's flag-kick had picked him out.

In the meantime, Netanyahu is not obligated to resign and has indicated he will fight the charges while remaining in office. Israel's Attorney General is weighing up that evidence and is expected to decide in a few months whether to bring charges.

Jan's three games were all key to our ongoing pursuit of a top four place and progress in the Champions League, as he played at Anfield, in the home win against Arsenal, and also in Turin.

Wagner was forced into another change just before the break as Pritchard had to come off with an injury, leaving to warm applause before Philip Billing replaced him.

Pochettino's men had absolutely dominated the first half, enjoying 75 per cent of the possession, but the fact they were only 1-0 up meant there was still work to do.

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

The most important game is surely the second leg of our Champions League Round of 16 game against Juventus, which is nicely poised thanks to our excellent comeback from 2-0 down after only the first 9 minutes in Turin.

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