Tottenham v Huddersfield Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
April 10, 2019
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium - Premier League
Champions League chasing Tottenham host relegated Huddersfield this weekend, with manager Mauricio Pochettino set to rotate his squad.
Tottenham won 2-0 away at Huddersfield back in September, with England international Harry Kane scoring twice that day. Spurs have won all three of Premier League meetings with The Terriers.
Kane has been ruled out for Spurs, after injuring his ankle in the 1-0 Champions League win over Manchester City in midweek, with either Lucas Moura or Fernando Llorente set to step in.
Harry Winks returned in that game, but fellow midfielders Eric Dier and Erik Lamela are ruled out - with Dele Alli also in line for a rest as he returns from an injury.
Huddersfield are slowing seeing some of their first team players returning to full fitness, with Laurent Depoitre, Philip Billing and Demeaco Duhaney all on the comeback trail for Jan Siewert's side.
Tottenham v Huddersfield Preview and Predictions
Spurs will be buoyant after gaining an advantage in the Champions League quarter final, as they prepare to head to the Etihad for the second leg next week. However that win has come at a cost, with Kane potentially sidelined until next season. Pochettino is expect to make plenty of changes for this tie, with that crunch game coming up, with Davinson Sanchez, Paulo Gazzaniga, Oliver Skipp, Juan Foyth and Troy Parrott potentially added to the squad.
The season's end cannot come quick enough for Huddersfield, and they should be easy prey for Spurs in this one - with a home win priced at 2/11.
Even without Kane, Spurs should still have plenty of firepower with the likes of Moura, Llorente and Son Hueng-Min, and they will want to keep confidence high ahead of that Champions League clash, and a Spurs win with over 2,5 total goals scored is available at 4/7.
Tottenham to win 3-0 at 15/2
Even with the anticipated changes that Pochettino is expected to make, Spurs should have little trouble in inflicting yet another defeat on rock bottom Huddersfield. Their eyes will be firmly focused on that Champions League second leg, but they need to maintain their league form if they are ensure a top four finish.
Son Heung-Min to score anytime at 13/10
With Kan out of action, even more goal scoring responsibility will fall onto the South Korean international, as it did during Kane's absence at the start of the year. The former Bayer Leverkusen man looks to be getting back to his best as the season reaches its conclusion, with two goals in his last two Spurs appearances.
