Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 Huddersfield Town: Lucas Moura’s hat-trick sees Spurs move back up to third in the Premier League with victory over the Terriers

Tottenham Hotspur kept up their 100 per cent record at their new stadium with a 4-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday.

Goals from Victor Wanyama and a Lucas Moura hat-trick saw Spurs move back up to third in the Premier League with the three points.

It is three back-to-back victories at the new arena and they are still to concede in front of their home fans.

Lucas Moura scored Tottenham’s second

Mauricio Pochettino made seven changes to his team with only Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen, Moussa Sissoko and Christian Eriksen the survivors from their Champions League win over Manchester City.

Son Heung-min, who has scored two of Spurs’ three goals at their new stadium, was on the bench.

Victor Wanyama opened the scoring

Despite missing Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son, Tottenham were a threat up front and took the lead after 24 minutes.

Fernando Llorente spun his marker but could not control the ball and it fell nicely into the path of Wanyama, who coolly rounded the goalkeeper to slot home.

Spurs doubled their lead three minutes later when Moura latched onto a through ball from Moussa Sissoko and arrowed a shot into the bottom left-hand corner.

Fernando Llorente sees his shot crash against the bar

Jon Stankovic had Huddersfield’s best chance of the half after 30 minutes when he headed wide from a set piece and should have done better.

Spurs went into the break 2-0 up and largely untroubled by the visitors.

Llorente came close to adding a third soon after half-time when the striker broke free in the area and his volley struck the crossbar.
