HUDDERSFIELD v SPURS

At the heart of every great team is a superstar striker, and in Harry Kane Tottenham certainly have one. The debate over his “world-class” status may rage on, but his importance to Mauricio Pochettino’s side was only underlined in midweek as another stunning display saw him claim his maiden Champions League hat-trick.

Attention must now shift back to the Premier League, however, and in newly promoted Huddersfield they’re sure to find a stern test. Surprising many pundits who has written them off during pre-season, David Wagner’s side have been a breath of fresh air so far, and with 9 points to their name already they’re flying high.

Managing one’s squad during European weeks is a major challenge for top managers nowadays, and it’s vital that Pochettino gets his selection right on Saturday lunchtime. This is the XI we expect him to go with:

Reverting back to the side that humiliated Everton at Goodison Park, Pochettino will be hoping for a very similar outcome, and there’s plenty of reason to believe he will get it.

Defensive trio Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sánchez and Jan Vertonghen have already struck up a strong understanding at the back for Spurs, starting together 4 times so far this season, winning 3, drawing 1 and keeping 2 clean sheets in the process.

Christian Eriksen last week became the Premier League’s all-time top scoring Dane, and in tandem with Dele Alli he will pose a serious threat to Huddersfield back line from midfield. Spurs average a highly impressive 1.98 goals per game when the pair start together, and an extension of that record would almost certainly deliver all 3 points here.

With Harry Kane in top form and his teammates not far behind, anything other than 4th Premier League away win of the season for Spurs would be a real surprise. Odds of 20/1 are available for new Betfair customers, and it really does look like one of the safest bets you could wish for.
