Tottenham v Huddersfield on Premier League Live
The weather has forced the cancellation of most sporting fixtures here this weekend but as of now the Premier League schedule is unaffected. Seven games are due to take place this Saturday, including the meeting of Tottenham and Huddersfield. Spurs are unbeaten in 16 games in all competitions and not for the first time under Mauricio Pochettino, are hitting form in the second half of the season. Spurs left it late to beat Crystal Palace 1-0 last Sunday but in truth they should have had the game won by the time Harry Kane popped up to get the winner. That was Kane’s 35th goal in all competitions this season, equalling his tally from 2016-17. There’s no stopping Kane as Spurs head into a crucial part of the season.
It’s only a matter of time before Manchester City are crowned Premier League champions but the fight for the rest of the places is far from done. Spurs are in a battle for a top four finish with Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea. Spurs have to finish the job off against Juventus but they’re in the driving seat to advance to the quarter finals of the Champions League and Pochettino wants to make sure they’re back in the competition next season when they move into a redeveloped White Hart Lane. Spurs also have a great chance of winning the FA Cup so they’re in healthy position at the start of March.
Huddersfield will have fond memories of Wembley where they won the Championship playoff final last May. The Terriers were among the favourites to get relegated but there’s been a bit more bite about them in recent weeks. David Wagner’s side started the season with back to back league wins but they found the going pretty tough after that although they did shock Manchester United earlier in the campaign. Huddersfield lie in 14th place on 30 points after back to back league wins. There’s a good chance they’ll survive if they pick up at three wins from their 10 remaining games. Huddersfield have only scored 10 goals in 14 away league this season so it’s unlikely tomorrow’s game at Wembley will provide them with one of those crucial wins.
