FULL-TIME

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

All over!

Tottenham move to within one point of second-placed Manchester United after a comfortable win over Huddersfield.

Now it's all eyes on their Champions League game with Juventus on Wednesday.

Thanks for your company.

Until next time.

GREAT SAVE!

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

Almost a third for Spurs.

Erik Lamela is allowed to go unchallenged into the Huddersfield penalty area and his deflected cross is creeping in before Jonas Lossl sticks out a strong hand to push it away.

Reu

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

Huddersfield have put in a shift but Tottenham's quality has proved too much.

It's the home matches against Swansea, Crystal Palace and Watford which will go a long way to deciding whether the Terriers are in the Premier League next season.

Win those and they'll be all but safe.

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

This hasn't been a vintage Spurs performance but they have done enough and deserve the three points.

Son's finishing has been excellent but he will be first to thank Dele Alli and Harry Kane for the quality of the passes to set him up.

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

Third and final Spurs change.

Dele Alli is coming off. Lucas Moura will see out the final few minutes.

Laurent Depoitre has also come on for Huddersfield

Huddersfield 'not doing enough'

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea keeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

If Huddersfield get a goal back, it starts to be a little nervy for Tottenham. But at the moment, they're not doing enough to put Spurs under pressure.

Huddersfield need to start absorbing pressure. They're leaving gaps at the back because they're trying to push forward.

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

A second Spurs change sees Moussa Sissoko replace Mousa Dembele.

It's all about saving energy for Juventus now.

Wembley Sonshine

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

This just in from our friends at Opta. Son Heung-Min has been directly involved in 13 goals in his last 11 Premier League appearances at Wembley (nine goals, four assists).

That's what you call impressive.

Spurs players 'stepping up'

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea keeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

Harry Kane hasn't scored today, Son has stepped up, and that's impressive. Kane has an ability to set goals up.

That's got to be really pleasing for the manager, that other players are stepping up to relieve the pressure on Kane.

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

It's looking like a lost cause for Huddersfield.

They need to find two goals in around 15 minutes to return to Yorkshire with a point.

The trouble is they haven't scored one on their travels against the big six clubs this season.

'Son will be disappointed'

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea keeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

I reckon Son will be disappointed coming off. He was on for a hat-trick.

I'd be upset. He's playing so well and it was a great opportunity for him to score three!

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

Tottenham continue to dominate as Erik Lamela gets ready to enter the action. You can hear the groans from the Huddersfield substitutes' bench.

Two-goal Son Heung-min is coming off only for Lamela to come on.

Handshakes and back slaps all round as Son takes his place on the bench.

Spurs 'feeling at home'

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea keeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

The way Tottenham are playing now at Wembley, they are feeling very much at home.

Against Juventus on Wednesday, it will become a fortress. You'd fancy them to win.

Andrew Ogley: I like Son. Quietly gets on with the game. The most understated star of the Premier League? Two well-taken goals today .... and a good boost to my fantasy team.

JS: Kane gets plaudits for his goal scoring, and that is obvious, but he is without doubt the most underrated passer in world football. An attribute that nobody ever talks about.

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

No goals for Harry Kane so far.

But that pass for Son's second goal...

Sumptuous.

'Sublime'

Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea keeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

You have to watch this cross from Kane. He picks Son out from the touchline, one bounce and all Son has to go is direct the ball into the back of the net.

Sublime from Harry Kane.

GOAL - Tottenham 2-0 Huddersfield

Son Heung-min

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful move.

Man-of-the-moment Son Heung-min is on a hat-trick after a fine header into the corner of the net after an outrageous pass by Harry Kane set his found his team-mate unmarked in the area.

Moments earlier, Tom Ince forced Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris into a save from 25 yards.

PENALTY APPEAL

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Surely a penalty to Spurs!

Son Heung-min is about eight yards out when Terence Kongolo tries to stop him from getting his shot away by grabbing him around the waist while the Huddersfield player is on the ground.

No penalty says stand-in referee Kevin Friend.

'Job done'

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea keeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

Huddersfield haven't played to their strengths but it's job done in case of just being one goal down.

Maybe they'll start to become more adventurous. If they can come away from Wembley with a point, that would be a tremendous result for them.

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Huddersfield have their first corner after 50 minutes.

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Harry Kane is hunting his 25th Premier League goal of the season. And he would have got it if Eric Dier's cross had not been taken off his toe by a quick-thinking Huddersfield defender.

Huddersfield 'frustrating' Spurs

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea keeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

You would expect Huddersfield to give a bit more than they are doing. They're trying to frustrate Spurs, and maybe they are thinking they can catch them on a counter and get into the game.

Huddersfield are very congested in the middle as Tottenham like to play down the centre. At the moment, they're defending well.

KICK-OFF

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Tottenham are 45 minutes away from moving to within one point of second-placed Manchester United.

Will Huddersfield come up with an equaliser?

We're back under way.

Jones still struggling

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

George Cummins

BBC Radio 5 live at Wembley

Fourth official Mike Jones is still struggling on the touchline. He is limping when he holds the board up for a substitution.

We are told the back-up official has been found and is sitting close to the tunnel in case he is needed.

HALF-TIME

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

It's all going to plan for Spurs.

They have the lead and they're injury-free before Juventus next week.

What will the second half bring?

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

A second change for Huddersfield before half-time!

This time it's enforced.

Former Spurs midfielder Alex Pritchard has failed to recover from an early knock and is replaced by Philip Billing.

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

As Mark alludes to, there's not an awful lot happening.

Spurs have the lead and are looking comfortable as half-time approaches.

Tottenham 'slow'

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea keeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

Tottenham at times are slow in their build up. It gives Huddersfield time to move across and comfortably deal with the situation.

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Brighton boss Chris Hughton is in the crowd at Wembley to see his former club Spurs. The Seagulls, who still have to play Tottenham and Huddersfield, entertain Arsenal on Sunday. How many Spurs fans will be urging on Brighton in that game? I reckon a lot.

Spurs are simply superb right now. I fancy them to finish in the top 3 of Premier League, last 8 of Champions League and get the FA Cup final

Ade, Bristol

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Here comes the Son (doo doo doo doo).

Here comes the Son, and I say.

It's all right.

Son's been excellent and he's unfortunate as he slams the ball into the side netting from an angle.

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

It's one-way traffic, Huddersfield just can't spend any time on the ball or get out of their half.

The only surprise is Spurs do not have a bigger lead with 10 minutes of the first half remaining.

Rachel T: Spurs ain't Trembley at Wembley anymore!

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Early change for Huddersfield and Collin Quaner is not happy!

He's headed straight down the tunnel after seeing his number flash up. Tom Ince is his replacement.

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Spurs move up to third in the 'as it stands' table - one point behind Manchester United.

'Spurs deserve to be in front'

Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Mark Schwarzer

Ex-Chelsea keeper on BBC Radio 5 Live

Son deserves that goal, he's been excellent. All he had to do was beat the goalkeeper and he did that with ease.

He's actually mishit his finish but who cares? Spurs deserve to be in front.

GOAL - Tottenham 1-0 Huddersfield

Son Heung-min

Superb by Son!

It's a delicious pass by Dele Alli that puts the South Korean clean through but he still has work to do. He rounds the keeper before finishing from an angle.

Tottenham have a deserved lead.

Son goal

Tottenham 0-0 Huddersfield

Four shots, one on target and 72% possession for Spurs...but no goals.

Home fans are doing their best to encourage their side.

Another rendition of "Come On You Spurs" echoes around Wembley.
