Son sinks Huddersfield as Spurs build on incredible record

Son sinks Huddersfield as Spurs build on incredible record

"We have had some important victories since I arrived but this was the best performance", Carvalhal said.

Tottenham host Juventus on Wednesday in the second leg of their last 16 clash, having drawn the first leg 2-2.

Heung-Min Son kept his cool to give Spurs a 27th-minute lead and it was the South Korean who doubled their advantage, but not before an outstanding pass from Kane.

Carlos Carvalhal's positive impact on Swansea continued with a fourth win in six games as they beat West Ham 4-1.

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane fired Liverpool into second place in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory against Newcastle, while Tottenham cemented their top four berth as Son Heung-Min inspired a 2-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday.

The Wembley factor was cited as one of the key reasons for Spurs' failure in Europe last season as they crashed out of both the Champions League and Europa League at the first time of asking. The win extended Spurs' unbeaten run in all competitions to 17 matches - the club's longest such streak in more than half a century. "Now I think for our fans and us, it's like our home", he said. 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.

Son was in a class of his own all afternoon and it was little surprise he showed more poise than his teammates in front of goal to finally open the scoring 27 minutes in. It is never easy to play Premier League games and today was tough.

However, seconds later the game was over as a contest when Son stooped to head home at the back post. "Of course, it was going to take time but now we feel like we're at home".

"It's a football game and we're going to enjoy it".

Kane may have failed to score for a sixth straight game, but the England striker deserved most of the credit for Son's second, though, as his wonderful cross picked out his teammate perfectly.

"The players gave me everything today and I can not ask for more than that", Pardew said.
