Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino 'so proud to be a manager in England' – video

Guardian - lør, 30/09/2017 - 18:31

Following his Tottenham side' 4-0 win at Huddersfield Town, manager Mauricio Pochettino reacted positively when asked about the standing ovation the home fans gave Harry Kane, after Kane scored a first-half brace against them. He said he was 'so proud' to manage in England with the atmosphere generated by the fans.

Harry Kane and Tottenham show Huddersfield no mercy to win at a canter

Guardian - lør, 30/09/2017 - 15:32

These days a team is not really a Premier League side until Harry Kane has shattered their defence. So this was an initiation of sorts for Huddersfield Town, who became the latest victims of a striker whose goals are fuelling Tottenham’s trophy ambitions and his own quest to break records.

David Wagner’s team had conceded only three goals in their first six top-flight matches since promotion but Tottenham fired that many past them in the first 23 minutes here, with Kane, inevitably, leading the onslaught. He scored the visitors’ first and third goals, and was instrumental in creating the second for Ben Davies. The left-back Davies helped the visitors add a fourth in stoppage time by setting up Moussa Sissoko.

Huddersfield Town 0-4 Tottenham Hotspur: Premier League – as it happened

Guardian - lør, 30/09/2017 - 15:23

Harry Kane took his September tally to 13 as Spurs won big on the road yet again.

2.45pm BST

2.21pm BST

And that’s that! Spurs win their sixth successive Premier League away game, and their fourth this season. They were thoroughly dominant, with Harry Kane relentless as ever. That’s ten goals in three matches on the road in eight days. Can they play away from Wembley every week? Spurs move into third place, at least for a couple of hours, while Huddersfield fall to tenth, their goal difference finally taking a bit of a knock. The Terriers were outclassed today, but there’s no shame in that: Spurs are doing this everywhere they go right now.

2.18pm BST

Son drives at Huddersfield with the home side light at the back. Davies is set clear down the left. He flicks into the middle, where Sissoko must score. And he does, but only after miscontrolling and seeing his shot, aimed for the bottom left, flick off the boot of Schindler and into the bottom right.

2.16pm BST

90 min: Nope. There will be three added minutes.

2.15pm BST

89 min: Space for van la Parra down the right. His cross is deflected out for a corner. Can Huddersfield - who, to be fair, hit the woodwork in the first half, and could easily have been awarded a penalty - grab a consolation?

2.14pm BST

87 min: No hat-trick for Kane; he’s replaced by Son. The substitution allows the away fans to give their favourite son a deserved standing ovation. The home fans, to their great credit, generously join in.

2.12pm BST

86 min: Alli slips Sissoko away down the right. Sissoko drops a shoulder to zip past the sliding Schindler, but his shot flies straight into the chest of Lossl.

2.11pm BST

85 min: Malone has looked lively since coming on, though. He has another busy run down the left, though the cross doesn’t work out.

2.10pm BST

84 min: Billing, sat very deep, sprays a glorious right-to-left pass towards Malone. Spurs are a little light at the back; sadly for Huddersfield, Malone falls flat on his face upon taking receipt of the ball.

2.08pm BST

82 min: A change apiece. Hogg is replaced by Whitehead, while Trippier makes way for Walker-Peters.

2.06pm BST

80 min: Alli floats a chip down the middle of the park and very nearly releases Kane into the area. Jorgensen wins the battle and the ball goes back to Lossl.

2.04pm BST

78 min: Not that Spurs would say no to another goal or two, should they happen to come along. Sissoko uses his fresh legs to bustle his way into the box down the right, but his cross isn’t up to much.

2.04pm BST

77 min: We’re in Training Mode now. Both teams would be more than happy to call it a day now, by the looks of it.

2.01pm BST

75 min: Spurs make their first swap. The hugely impressive Eriksen is replaced by Sissoko.

2.00pm BST

74 min: ... there’s nothing.

2.00pm BST

73 min: Kane sprays a pass wide left for Davies, who powers past Smith and earns a corner. From the set piece, Dier picks up possession on the edge of the box, and looks to sidefoot a clever one into the bottom right. It’s deflected out for another corner, this time on the right. From which ...

1.58pm BST

71 min: Eriksen chases after a chip down the left. He beats the flapping Lossl to the ball, on the byline to the left of goal. But his attempt to find Kane in the middle with a floating cross is no good, and Lossl makes up for his error by claiming back the ball.

1.57pm BST

70 min: The Huddersfield fans have finally found their voice, and are giving it plenty right now. Is there a better noise in football than the defiant support of the defeated? Malone responds with another fine run down the left. He reaches the byline and dinks a fine ball into the middle. Kachunga can’t meet it at the near post, and Alderweireld flicks away.

1.54pm BST

67 min: Eriksen sashays infield from the left, leaving Jorgensen and Hogg in his wake. His low whack towards the bottom left is easily gathered by Lossl. “It’s worth pointing out that Dele Alli is now a yellow card away from receiving simultaneous suspensions from Fifa, Uefa and the FA,” notes Danny Michaux, who I’m guessing wouldn’t have him any other way.

1.52pm BST

65 min: A booking for Kachunga, who came second-best in a high-kicking contest with Vertonghen, as the pair attempted to deal with a disobedient bouncing ball. There really wasn’t much in that.

1.51pm BST

64 min: Malone tries to snap the match back into life. He makes off down the left and curls a low cross into the centre. Vertonghen doesn’t clear, but there’s nobody in blue-and-white stripes lurking, and Lloris claims with ease.

1.49pm BST

63 min: This match has slipped into Testimonial Mode. The away supporters are still enjoying themselves.

1.47pm BST

61 min: Huddersfield make a double change: Malone and Billing come on for Mooy and Lowe.

1.46pm BST

60 min: Vertonghen latches onto a loose Hogg pass in the midfield. He’s got options to feed team-mates in on goal, but takes a blooter from 30 yards instead. No good!

1.45pm BST

58 min: Alli dribbles his way past Schindler and into the area down the left. He looks to poke the ball past Lossl from a tight angle, but over-runs it, then goes over theatrically before he reaches the keeper. It’s not a very good dive, and he’s booked for it. He grins sheepishly as he jogs back upfield.

1.43pm BST

57 min: Huddersfield stroke it around the back awhile. The clock ticks on. It’s like that already. Eventually they’re forced to move upfield, and lose the ball in short order.

1.42pm BST

55 min: Tripper insists he’s good to go again, and the physio agrees. He’s quickly back into the action, nearly getting on the end of a pass down the right wing.

1.40pm BST

54 min: Ince clatters into Trippier, as the pair legitimately contest a high ball. The Spurs full-back comes off worse, having taken a whack to the back of his head. All accidental. A break while he’s quizzed by the physio and wiped down with a cool, wet sponge.

1.38pm BST

51 min: Kane wheels down the right wing and nearly finds Alli and Davies in the middle with a floating cross. Not quite. Huddersfield are in damage-limitation mode, but they’re in danger of shipping more goals yet.

1.37pm BST

49 min: Davies dinks Eriksen away down the left. Eriksen can’t get a shot away from a tight angle. He tries to cue up Kane, but Schindler is on hand to block. Eriksen has another go, and the ball squirts out for a corner on the left. From the set piece, Dier flicks on, and Kane should batter home from six yards, but he mistimes his leaping kick and the ball flies out to the right of goal.

1.35pm BST

48 min: Winks wedges a pass down the inside-right channel with a view of releasing Kane into the Huddersfield box. Schindler is on hand to battle and eventually force the in-form Spurs man out of play. Goal kick.

1.33pm BST

47 min: Lossl launches it long. Depoitre briefly threatens to break clear, but there’s to be no good old-fashioned 1980s route-one goal, as Sanchez steps across to ease the Huddersfield striker out of the road.

1.31pm BST

And we’re off again! Huddersfield get the ball rolling for the second half. No changes by either side.

1.20pm BST

Half-time reading: There are some supporters who would give anything to be on the end of a half-time scoreline like this ...

1.18pm BST

So that’s 13 goals in September for Harry Kane. Seven in the last in seven days. And Spurs have scored three on the road for the fourth match in a row, following games at Everton, West Ham and Apoel Nicosia. (Just the two at Newcastle on the opening weekend, the slackers.) Poor Huddersfield.

1.16pm BST

45 min: Winks, Dier and Eriksen combine to confuse each other in the centre circle, and for a second it looks as though Depoitre is going to take advantage and scoot clear. But he’s not got the jet-power, and his attempted pass to send Kachunga away down the right is weak and misplaced.

1.14pm BST

43 min: Depoitre bombs down the inside-right channel, and with no other option but to go it alone, sends a powerful rising shot towards the top right from 25 yards. It pings off the top of the crossbar and out. A little bit lower, and Lloris was picking that out of his net; he wasn’t getting across to it. Huddersfield have been comprehensively outplayed, and yet they’ve hit the woodwork and had a fair shout for a penalty kick. The margins in the Premier League are fine.

1.12pm BST

42 min: ... Spurs do very little. But Hogg makes an awful hash of a clearance, another fresh-air swipe. He eventually gets the job done, but he’s betraying Huddersfield’s frayed nerves.

1.11pm BST

41 min: Spurs hog the ball for a bit, then Davies turns on a little speed and wins a corner down the left. From which ...

1.09pm BST

38 min: Trippier reaches the right-hand corner of the pitch and whips a glorious cross into the Huddersfield box from a tight spot. What a ball. Who needs Kyle Walker?! But Kane can’t get on the end of it, and Schindler lifts clear.

1.07pm BST

36 min: Dier, quarterbacking from deep on the left, finds Kane in the area, cutting in from the right. Kane sticks a leg out and guide the ball first-time into the bottom left. But it’s no hat-trick - yet - because the flag goes up for offside. Kane has a face on, but it was the correct decision.

1.06pm BST

35 min: Or are they? A couple of decent attacks, both involving Kachunga, who breaks down the right, and nearly finds Ince in the centre with a fine low cross that’s deflected away by Vertonghen, then draws a foul from the same defender to the left of the D. Mooy’s free kick is hopeless, but Huddersfield recycle the ball. Mooy nearly makes amends with a fine chip into the box from the left; Lloris fingertips it away from the lurking Depoitre.

1.04pm BST

33 min: Davies and Kane combine down the left, nearly splitting Huddersfield in two. But there’s a loose pass, and the move breaks down on the edge of the box. Huddersfield are already desperate to hear the half-time whistle.

1.02pm BST

31 min: Eriksen dances down the right and slips a pass inside for Alli, who enters the box, sends Jorgensen off to the wrong fire with a simple drop of a shoulder, and curls a shot past Lossl and off the base of the left-hand post. Davies curls the ball back into the box from the left wing. Alli isn’t far away from guiding a header into the top right from a tight angle. Huddersfield are being ripped to pieces at the back by the movement of Eriksen, Kane and Alli.

1.00pm BST

30 min: Huddersfield venture forward once or twice. Ince has a probe down the inside-left channel, but has to turn back. Then some space for Lowe down the left. He earns a corner off Trippier, from which Mooy’s eventual cross is easily claimed by Lloris.

12.59pm BST

27 min: Huddersfield try to take the sting out of the game with a little sterile possession in the midfield. It’s all they can do. It’s fair to say Spurs have quietened this stadium.

12.57pm BST

25 min: On the touchline, David Wagner wears a textbook thousand-yard stare. His team have been swept away by the astonishing Harry Kane, who could quite easily have had a 14-minute hat-trick. Ah well, just the two brilliant finishes will have to do.

12.55pm BST

Oh Harry Kane’s got a bit of credit in the bank all right! He’s a football genius. He picks up possession with his back to goal, 30 yards out down the right. He’s got two men on his back. No worries! He spins round into space, shifts the ball left, and curls a vicious shot into the top left! “He’s just a one-season wonder,” trill the away support.

12.53pm BST

21 min: To be fair, Kane’s got a bit of credit in the bank right now.

12.53pm BST

19 min: BREAKING NEWS! HARRY KANE DOES SOMETHING WRONG! Lossl makes an awful hash of a common-or-garden kick upfield. A fresh-air swipe. Kane nips in, takes the ball off him, and should square to Eriksen for a simple tap into an unguarded net. But he opts to round the keeper, who is desperately spreadeagled in an attempt to make up for his whiff. Lossl snaffles the ball back as Kane over-elaborates and falls over. Oh Harry!

12.50pm BST

18 min: Kachunga bursts down the inside-right channel and dribbles into the box. He’s brushed to the ground by Sanchez. It’s a clumsy challenge, too much shoulder from behind and a boot stuck in there too, and you’ve seen penalties given for less. The crowd go wild, but the ref isn’t having any of it.

12.49pm BST

17 min: Spurs are smooth and confident. Kane makes a little bit of space down the left and attempts to lash a dipper into the net from the best part of 30 yards. It’s just over the bar, but not too far away at all.

12.48pm BST

Some pretty triangles down the right by Spurs, Eriksen at the heart of it all. And suddenly Eriksen is breaking clear down the inside right! He dawdles towards the box, and is caught up by Schindler and Jorgensen, who operate a pincer movement. But the ball squirts out between the defenders and to the left, where Davies is totally free! He steps into the area to meet the ball, and gently wedges it past Lossl and into the net.

12.45pm BST

15 min: Smith curls a ball into the Spurs mixer from the right. It drops to Mooy, 12 yards out, level with the left-hand post. He can’t quite get the ball under control. When he eventually manages it, he’s forced to spin around a bit to create space to shoot. When he shoots, it’s quickly blocked. But for half a second there, it looked like Huddersfield had created a chance to equalise.

12.43pm BST

13 min: Trippier is fortunate to escape a booking after leaving a high boot in on van La Parra. Both sides have been gifted one now.

12.42pm BST

11 min: That was a real sucker punch for Huddersfield, the goal coming as it did after a couple of promising attacks. The atmosphere quickly evaporated when Kane sent the net billowing, that’s for sure.

12.41pm BST

A kick upfield by Lossl is headed back into the Huddersfield half by Trippier. Lowe should clear, but Kane nips off with the ball instead, racing down the right, entering the area, and slamming an unstoppable shot into the bottom right. This guy is hot.

12.39pm BST

8 min: A really poor crossfield pass in the midfield by Alli allows Smith to scamper upfield on the break. He very nearly slips Depoitre away down the inside-right channel, but Sanchez gets in the road. The ball breaks left for Ince, whose shot is deflected wide left of the goal. Corner, from which nothing comes.

12.37pm BST

6 min: And now a little bit of space for Mooy on the left. His looping cross is aimed for Depoitre at the far post, but Vertonghen is first to the ball and clears the danger.

12.36pm BST

5 min: Huddersfield aren’t in the Premier League to make up the numbers, this we already know. And they make their first statement of intent, Smith taking a crack from 25 yards out on the right. It’s a belter of a shot, headed for the bottom left, and Lloris does very well to stick out a strong arm to parry it clear.

12.34pm BST

3 min: Jorgensen is slightly fortunate to escape a booking after a pointless challenge from behind on Eriksen in the midfield. He’s got a fine “Who me?!” shrug in his locker, the big defender. A roll of the shoulders, palms to the air. Textbook stuff.

12.33pm BST

2 min: The first corner leads to a second. Neither cause Huddersfield serious issues. But that was a fast, confident start by Spurs. A statement of intent.

12.32pm BST

30-odd seconds: And it didn’t take long for something to happen. Trippier rolls a ball down the inside-right channel, finding Kane in the area. For once, Kane is a wee bit hesitant, because a first-time shot could have seriously tested Lossl in the Huddersfield goal. But he takes a touch, can’t work space for a shot, then turns and tries to pass to Alli. The ball’s bundled out for a corner.

12.30pm BST

And we’re off! Spurs get the ball rolling. It goes out for a throw in double-quick time. More breaking news as we have it!

12.30pm BST

A rare old atmosphere at the Kirklees Stadium. The place is bouncing. Huddersfield Town (champions of England in 1924, 1925 and 1926) and Tottenham Hotspur (champions in 1951 and 1961) take to the pitch, the former wearing their famous blue-and-white stripes, the latter in second-choice deep purple. Or is it deep blue? You can picture it.

12.19pm BST

David Wagner speaks! “To be fair, for us, the first six games were big, our first matches in Premier League history. Now we are playing one of the teams who are probably playing for the title this season. I am excited, we are looking forward to seeing how everyone adapts. We want to show what we are about. They are in good form, but it makes no sense to be focused on their form. We have to make our details right, we have to be clear every single second, concentrate every single second, and we can see what we can get out of it. We are capable. We have an attitude to work together. We must be brave enough to create our moment. At the end, we have to deliver on the grass.”

11.47am BST

Mauricio Pochettino speaks! “Always our mentality is to win games, whether away from home or at home. We want to keep up the level of our performance. Today we have a tough game, they do not concede too many goals. It’s a massive challenge. They are a very energetic team with a lot of good-quality players. I admire Huddersfield, they are fantastic. It is important to recognise that. It is a great challenge after tough games in the Champions League and against West Ham.”

11.43am BST

Huddersfield make one change to the side held to a goalless draw at Burnley last Saturday. Abdelhamid Sabiri drops to the bench, making way for Rajiv van La Parra.

Spurs welcome back Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen to their starting XI. Missing from the team sent out against Apoel Nicosia: Heung-Min Son and Moussa Sissoko, who drop to the bench, and the suspended Serge Aurier.

11.31am BST

Huddersfield Town: Lossl, Smith, Jorgensen, Schindler, Lowe, Mooy, Hogg, Kachunga, van La Parra, Ince, Depoitre.
Subs: Malone, Whitehead, Billing, Sabiri, Cranie, Green, Hadergjonaj.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Trippier, Winks, Dier, Davies, Eriksen, Alli, Kane.
Subs: Son, Vorm, Nkoudou, Sissoko, Llorente, Foyth, Walker-Peters.

10.05am BST

... in which Huddersfield Town, without a win in five matches, look to rediscover some of that early-season sass. Meanwhile Tottenham Hotspur consider their chances of scoring three on the road for the fourth match in succession, after victories against Everton, West Ham United and Apoel Nicosia.

It’s Huddersfield’s first big test of the season. It’s on, and it starts at 12.30pm BST.
