Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham’s midfield dilemma vs Huddersfield

Tottenham vs Huddersfield

It’s another must-win Saturday for Spurs as Huddersfield Town arrive at Wembley.

If Tottenham hope to finish the season in the top four, then victories over teams like the Terriers is a must.

But Spurs cannot take Huddersfield for granted, even with the Champions League match against Juventus coming up next Wednesday.

Will Mauricio Pochettino shake up his side ahead of that Juve game? Not too much, if the Saturday papers are to be believed.

Spurs midfield dilemma vs Huddersfield

The Guardian and the Times have predicted how Tottenham will line up against Huddersfield.

Both news outlets generally piece together the same XI.

Harry Kane will continue to lead the Spurs attack, while the likes of Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli will support their striker.

The big question mark for Tottenham is over the players who’ll shield the back four.

Victor Wanyama was back in the Tottenham starting XI last weekend at Crystal Palace. But it’s unclear whether he’ll keep his place with Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier also vying to start.

Tottenham vs Huddersfield: Premier League preview

Tottenham are currently the Premier League best-performing side in 2018, having taken more points than any other club and yet to suffer defeat.

Last time out, Spurs left it late at Selhurst Park as who other than Harry Kane netted an 88th-minute header to very much keep alive his side’s top four ambitions to edge Crystal Palace 1-0.

The three points moved this Saturday’s hosts back up into the top four and just two points behind third-placed Liverpool.

Despite crucial wins over West Brom and Bournemouth the Terriers still haven’t been allowed breathing space between themselves and the drop zone.

David Wagner’s side are still within just three points of the bottom three and with a -23 goal difference, the second worst in the league, they are currently sat in a rather vulnerable position.

The two sides met earlier on in the season, a match in which Kane stole the show with a magnificent brace, whilst goals from Ben Davies and a first for the club from Moussa Sissoko handed Tottenham all three points in West Yorkshire.
