Winks has only managed to make brief appearances for Spurs off the bench this season. Their start to life in the Premier League had been about as good as can be expected before this game, with only one defeat, two wins and four clean sheets from their first six games.
Huddersfield have only found the net five times in their seven top-flight matches so far this term, with this the fourth game in which they have drawn a blank.
"It wasn't straightforward, every game tough in Premier League".
"Now all the talk at the tail-end of last season and into this season is "what's going to happen with the Spurs players" contracts?'".
Dele Alli struck hit the frame of the goal and Kane netted from an offside position as Pochettino's side threatened to run riot, but Huddersfield went close to producing a superb response when Laurent Depoitre struck the crossbar at the end of a driving run. White Hart Lane outfit has now 14 points from 7 games played and sits at third behind league leaders Manchester City and Manchester United. Casey Palmer, Daniel Williams, Collin Quaner, and Jon Gorenc-Stankovic are the players who will automatically miss the fixture after also missing their away barren draw at Burnley.
What was, therefore, heartening was how the home fans stuck with their team.
Serge Aurier will have to serve a suspension while Erik Lamela, Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama remain absent. Like Sean, we're seeing a huge swell of interest in the town, and are doing an increasing number of interviews with radio and TV stations from all over the world -that's unprecedented.
Speaking ahead of today's clash, Huddersfield boss David Wagner revealed that he had no special plans for dealing with Harry Kane, a decision which he likely regrets based on the 24-year-old's first-half showing.
If Tottenham stick with the 3-4-2-1 formation, it seems likely one of the aforementioned midfielders will have to settle for a place on the bench unless Pochettino was to drop Alli.
Tottenham Hotspur have maintained their 100% away record in the Premier League this season with an emphatic 4-0 victory away to Huddersfield Town. The hosts will have a slight advantage of playing against the team that was involved in an away midweek European competition.
Not a great deal to add on Vertoghen's performance in comparison to his fellow central defenders. Huddersfield will need to score more often if they are to stay up this season.
