Tottenham Hotspur vs. Huddersfield Town – Football match report – April 13, 2019


Tottenham scrambled over Chelsea in London and took third place in the Premier League table as a goal from Lucas Moura's hat and a goal by Victor Wanyama gave them a 4-0 home against the relegated Huddersfield .

Wanyama cleared goalkeeper Ben Hamer to launch Spurs at the top after 24 minutes. Mora doubled the advantage with an angle finish shortly afterwards.

The Spurs won a free kick in the initial moments. Fernando Llorente played Moura, who was guilty of Jonathan Hogg, but Christian Eriksen's shot hit the wall.

A few moments later there were appeals when Hamer appeared to throw Moura's shirt, but the game was acclaimed.

Wanyama shot as Spurs continued asking questions and then a head of Moura in the box six meters was too high for Llorente to direct him to the target.

Although the home side dominated, Huddersfield was beginning to restrict their opportunities, but changed because the first goal of the game came after 24 minutes.

Ben Davies played the ball at Llorente and, when the forward did not manage to control it, he went to Wanyama, who moved away from Hamer and opened the scoring.

Three minutes later, Spurs had complete control when Moussa Sissoko found Moura, who knocked over the goalkeeper's dive.

But in half an hour, Huddersfield should have encountered the first significant attack, Jon Stankovic sending an effort from one corner.

Llorente could have achieved three times before the break, finding space in the area, but seeing that the shot was blocked and then headed a header with a clear angle.

The striker hit the bar in the initial moments of the second half, Davies drilling wide from the edge of the area, as the Spurs attacks continued.

Mora tested Hamer with a low speed and Huddersfield got Steve Mounie forward by Erik Durm while they were looking for a return route to the game.

They could have had one when Grant ran into the area, but could not beat Hugo Lloris, but the action soon returned to the other end, where Llorente's shot was blocked.

Sissoko gave way to Oliver Skipp, as Spurs made the first change in the afternoon, and the venue almost happened a few moments later, when Hogg's cross was led by Mounie.

Grant approached the visitors when he crashed and Lloris sent a lack of free kick from Juninho Bacuna to the post and more.

Aaron Mooy came out for Stankovic in another change for visitors, Danny Rose replacing Vertonghen and Son Heung-Min in Llorente, as Spurs also made late changes.

And they finished the afternoon in the style, Moura controlling and finishing excellent after being found in the area by Eriksen, on the left with three minutes and completing his acute with an angle shot in the stopped time.
