Corrected: Spurs hat-trick hero Lucas reminds Pochettino of his qualities

Kane absence makes Tottenham tougher to beat – Siewert

Tottenham rested several key players with this fixture falling in between their Champions League doubleheader with Manchester City, and were also without injured duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

Mauricio Pochettino's men climbed back into third-place in the Premier League table with an emphatic 4-0 win over bottom-placed Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

"Moura ripped the Terriers to shreds with a beautifully taken hat-trick". 'We are fighting against big sides and teams that are building to win the league or to win big trophies or be in the top four.

"When you are so fearless, away at Tottenham, until the end, and you have three good possibilities to score, to be the first [away] team who could score here, it makes me proud in a way".

"There were about 3,700 supporters who came here to London today, a big trip for them, and we wanted to give them something".

Amid rumors he might not be in charge next season if Ashley will not promise more investment, Benitez added: "We have to have a team who can compete".

Tottenham winger Lucas Moura had a day to remember after scoring his first hat-trick for the club and celebrating on the pitch of Spurs pristine new stadium with his young son Miguel.

"They won against us without him when he went off last week and they have brilliant players". Guardiola will hope to capitalise as Spurs go into the clash without Kane. Lucas showed that with three goals, it's not easy.

"Players like Juan Foyth, Ben Davies, Davinson (Sanchez), Kyle Walker-Peters, Fernando (Llorente) and Victor Wanyama, it's so important for them to play 90 minutes and feel they can help the team and feel important".

"It was so good for Lucas to get three goals against Huddersfield".

The hosts remained a constant threat, though, and after Christian Eriksen saw his deflected effort strike the post after a quick breakaway, Moura killed the game in the 87th minute when he slid home Eriksen's cross. Moussa Sissoko dinked a pass into Lucas's path and the Brazilian took a touch before drilling a fierce shot across Hamer into the far corner.

When asked if he believes Kane could return this season, the manager said: "We'll see, there is five weeks, it is going to be hard".

He is likely to miss the rest of the season after it was confirmed he suffered ligament damage to his left ankle - a repeat of the issue sustained against Manchester United in January that ruled him out for just over a month.

"Goal difference can be decisive at the end of the season to achieve the top four". I think until the end it will be a very tough race.

Referee: L Mason (Lancashire).
