Tottenham boss hails this player as the ideal midfielder

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful Christian Eriksen will be available to face Huddersfield this weekend.

A ideal hat-trick against APOEL in the Champions League on Tuesday helped Spurs keep pace with Real Madrid in Group H, his treble coming on the back of braces against Everton, Borussia Dortmund and West Ham. Dele Alli and Jan Vertonghen are also in contention for a start after sitting that game out due to suspension.

In terms of injuries, Tottenham have four absentees with Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama, Danny Rose and Erik Lamela all sidelined.

The Welsh global left back pushed Kane very far for the man of the match award with a great display of how to play the wing back role.

A wonderfully worked move down the right saw Kane send Christian Eriksen through, with Lowe nicking the ball from the Dane only to see it trickle to an unmarked Davies, the Wales worldwide lofting over Lossl to give the Terriers a mountain to climb. This was certainly a case of Tottenham being incredibly good, rather than David Wagner's side rolling over.

Officials said the park remains open and visitor services were unaffected by the incident. The park records about 80 rock falls per year, though they are rarely fatal.

The year was 1972 and Tottenham defeated Huddersfield 2-1 in the League Cup. It's thus not a surprise that, when up against the best in the Premier League, they might take the odd thrashing.

The game began to become disjointed, with the hosts unable to produce the creativity needed to unlock the Spurs defence, while the away side seemed happy to rest on their laurels after doing all the hard work in the first half. They are the first newly-promoted side to achieve this since Blackburn Rovers in 1992.

What can you say about Harry Kane and his goal scoring abilities that hasn't already been said, especially this week as two more goals in this game made it seven in his last three games and 13 for the month of September.

After nine minutes, Huddersfield's Chris Lowe was caught napping at the back, the England striker raced through on goal and calmly slotted past Jonas Lossl to put Spurs ahead. Although Huddersfield will look to mark him to ensure minimal damage, the striker now has the capability to wreak havoc upon even the strongest of teams. Meanwhile, Tottenham return from a successful midweek trip to Cyprus. With his back to goal and surrounded by Huddersfield defenders, the number 10 turned and evaded them all before curling a brilliant left-footed finish inside the near post - his seventh goal in a productive week.
