Lucas Moura hat-trick gives Tottenham Hotspur a decisive win against Huddersfield
Brazilian international, Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick for Tottenham Hotspur in a decisive win against Huddersfield at White Hart Lane. Tottenham defeated Huddersfield by 4 – 0.
Tottenham gaffe, Mauricio Pochettino took a strategic risk by resting top striker, Harry Kane for the very important second leg quarter-final encounter with Manchester City next week in the UEFA Champions League at the Etihad Stadium.
Pochettino’s decision to bench his star players has been justified. Victor Wanyama opened the scoring for Spurs in the 24′ minute of the encounter while Lucas Moura scored in the 27′, 87′ and 90+2′ minutes of the encounter to keep Spurs in third place on the table.
The encounter with Huddersfield seemed like a distraction given that the West Yorkshire based side have already been relegated from the Premier League. The victory was a boost for Spurs for their midweek encounter with Manchester City.
