Jan Vertonghen pleased with Tottenham's form in Huddersfield win

Tottenham Hotspur's Argentinian head coach Mauricio Pochettino walks away after complaining to the fourth official about Tottenham Hotspur's South Korean striker Son Heung Min yellow

MAURICIO POCHETTINO was clearly very satisfied with his Tottenham Hotspur side after a brace from Heung-Min Son helped them eased past Huddersfield Town in a one-sided Premier League encounter at Wembley Stadium.

The Korea Republic worldwide struck in each half to give the home side all three points at Wembley and move them into third in the table, at least temporarily.

The Korean striker scored either side of the half with two very well taken goals.

Spurs are set to leave Wembley next season and return to the new White Hart Lane but Pochettino said it is no longer a problem to play in this corner of north west London.

The Spaniard has generally struggled to make an impact since the turn of the year, and Lucas' arrival at the end of January forced him out of the matchday squads for the matches against Arsenal, Juventus and Crystal Palace.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Christian Eriksen were among those restored to the starting line-up from Wednesday's 6-1 demolition of third-tier Rochdale in the FA Cup.

With a two-goal advantage and the momentum, Pochettino gradually substituted Son, Mousa Dembele and Alli, suggesting all three can expect to start against Juve. With just two, we feel a bit sad.

Jan Vertonghen praised his Tottenham team-mates for maintaining their impressive form ahead of the visit of Juventus with Saturday's 2-0 win over Huddersfield.

Spurs leapfrog Liverpool, who host Newcastle later (1730GMT), into third in the Premier League, but more importantly open up a five-point lead over fifth-placed Chelsea in the battle for a top-four finish.

"What the offensive players like is to have the ball and shoot and score goals, and then when they need to work and run in behind to the ball and try to chase the opponent, put pressure on, that is the more hard part to teach, to make them available to run for the team".

Despite the spectre of a huge Champions League last 16, second leg with Juventus to come on Wednesday, Mauricio Pochettino named his strongest available side.

By contrast, Huddersfield offered barely any attacking threat as a 10th defeat in 15 away league games leaves David Wagner's men just three points above the relegation zone in 15th.
