Tottenham vs Hotspur vs. Huddersfield Town – Report Football Matches – April 13, 2019



Tottenham has risen above rival Chelsea and is third in the Premier League standings thanks to Lucas Moura's hat trick. A goal from Victor Wanyama allowed them to win 4-0 at home against Huddersfield.

Wanyama allowed goalkeeper Ben Hamer to slide the Spurs in front after 24 minutes of dominant play, Moura doubling the score with a side entry soon after.

The Spurs won a dangerous free kick in the first minutes of the match. Fernando Llorente played in Moura but Jonathan Hogg was the target of the offense, but Christian Eriksen's shot hit the wall.

Moments later, Hamer seemed to pull Moura's jersey but the game continued.

Wanyama caught on as the Spurs continued to ask questions, and then a Moura head on the penalty area was too high for Llorente.

Huddersfield was beginning to narrow his chances – but that changed as the first goal of the match came in after 24 minutes.

Ben Davies played the ball in Llorente and, when the attacker failed to control him, he found himself facing Wanyama, who moved away from Hamer and opened the brand.

Three minutes later, the Spurs had full control when Moussa Sissoko found Moura, whose free-kick plunged into the keeper's dive.

But on the half-hour, Huddersfield should have responded in his first serious attack, Jon Stankovic sending an effort away from goal.

Llorente could have done three before the break, finding room in the box, but seeing his shot blocked, he quickly headed his head, slightly at an angle.

The striker hit the bar in the first moments of the second period, Davies drilling away from the edge of the area as the Spurs' attacks continued.

Moura tested Hamer with a low shot and Huddersfield called on striker Steve Mounie for Erik Durm while they were looking for a way into the match.

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

Sissoko gives way to Oliver Skipp while the Spurs make their first change of the afternoon, the other side conceding a few moments later, when the center of Hogg is at the height of the head of Mounie.

Grant then approached the visitors when he turned around and Lloris gave Juninho Bacuna a curling free kick at the bar.

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

And they finished the afternoon in style, Moura controlling and finishing superbly after finding Eriksen in the box three minutes from the end and completing his treble with an oblique shot at the break.
