Spurs 2 Huddersfield 0
Due to a busy week, I’m updating this post after the Spurs v Juventus match (Post 71). So I’ll make this brief.
“We don’t think too much about the past. Of course, that is a very good stat but for me football is tomorrow – it’s not yesterday.”
Much was made of this defeat of Huddersfield taking Spurs unbeaten stretch in all competitions to 17 matches, our longest such run since 1967. But as Poch replied when asked about making a bit of history, that’s a good stat but the past is the past.
We completed the double over Huddersfield with a minimum of fuss. After our 4-0 win at their place (Post 33), they were happy to come to Wembley and defend, aiming to leave without a seriously damaged goal difference. Huddersfield achieved that but not much else.
Spurs enjoyed 75% possession, 15 shots (v 3) with 7 on target (v 3) and 8 corners (v 1). Son scored 2 goals, the second a header after a stunning assist from Kane (a wickedly curved cross from the right wing).
Job Done. And onto Juventus.
