Premier League roundup: Liverpool fire into second spot, Son powers Spurs win

Spurs, whose Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino became the first non-European coach to win 100 Premier League games, moved up to third on 58 points from 29 games, a point ahead of Liverpool who were playing Newcastle United later on Saturday.

As Spurs prepare to host Juventus under the arch, Son could not have done much more to force Pochettino into a rethink - and the fact he was the first Lilywhites player to be withdrawn today, 20 minutes from the end, might just give him extra hope of grabbing a starting role against the Italians.

With a two-goal advantage and the momentum, Pochettino gradually substituted Son, Mousa Dembele and Alli, suggesting all three can expect to start against Juve.

Tottenham, who drew the away leg of their last-32 tie 2-2 in Turin, extended their unbeaten run to 17 matches with victory over the Terriers.

"But of course, we are so happy with him and everyone".

"The performance was so good, we keep going and try to be ready for Wednesday".

Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Garth Crooks has hailed the emergence of Heung-Min Son, who he feels is quickly becoming a key player under Mauricio Pochettino.

Alli's fine pass split the Huddersfield defence wide open and Son took his time to round Lossl before slotting into an empty net.

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner claimed his sdie could leave Wembley "with our heads up" after a 2-0 defeat at Tottenham.

In the 54th minute from space on the right wing, Kane whipped a masterful cross into the area that Son ran onto at the back post and met with a well-timed header Lossl had little chance to save.

Kane may have failed to score for the first time in six games, but the England striker deserved most of the credit for Son's second as his wonderful cross picked out his teammate perfectly.

And Wagner said: "The seconds before the second goal shows everything".

Speaking to Sky Sports after full-time, he said: "We got beaten by quality".

As you can see below, the Englishman latched onto a misplaced pass and seemed to be going nowhere before delivering a flawless long-range cross from which Son headed home.
