Pochettino delighted with ‘professional’ win over Huddersfield

Mauricio Pochettino admits he was pleased with his side’s ‘professional’ performance after Tottenham beat already-relegated Huddersfield 4-0 on Saturday.

Spurs were without the injured Harry Kane and Dele Alli, but sealed a comfortable home victory courtesy of Victor Wanyama’s opener and a Lucas Moura hat-trick.

The win was Tottenham’s third in succession in all competitions, lifting them to third in the Premier League, and Pochettino admits he was ‘pleased’ with his side’s display.

“I am so pleased. Football is about the squad, the collective, of course we had some injuries after Manchester City like Alli and Kane and we were forced to make changes and we needed to provide fresh legs and it’s good because we have a tough period ahead and the performance was very professional,” Pochettino told BBC’s MOTD.

“It’s always important to open the game and score in the first half to give belief and confidence, after a few minutes we score the second goal and lift the stadium and fans – it’s fantastic to play here and gives the players fantastic energy and belief.”
