Tottenham were without Harry Kane and Dele Alli in the 34th Premier League match on Saturday (4/13/2019) at 18.30 WIB against Huddersfield. In fact, the host at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was chasing a victory to continue to be able to survive in the Champions League zone.
Kane and Alli, two key players of The Lily Whites, suffered injuries in a match against Manchester City. In the first leg of the last 8 of the Champions League, Spurs could beat City 1-0 through Son Heung-Min’s goal.
Facing the problem of injury to Kane and Alli, chances are that Mauricio Pochettino will choose the options of other players such as Fernando Llorente or Lucas Moura.
“Harry Kane has suffered a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle following a victory against Manchester City. We can also confirm the results of the examination Dele Alli [suffered an injury] cracked his left hand, “wrote the official Tottenham page.
Although the home team could not bring down their best squad, Jan Siewert as coach Huddersfield remained wary of the collectivity of the Spurs game.
This happened because Son Heung-Min and his colleagues would appear before their own supporters, at their new stadium. So far, from the 2 home matches played at Tottenham Stadium, they have always won and managed to record 2 clean sheets.
Siewert said his foster children would try to provide the best resistance. But the German tactician also realizes that the opponents will be faced, not an arbitrary team.
“We want to show the best. We try to build momentum, but when you see the opponents we face [Tottenham] next, this is not easy. [but] We will try because that is our ambition, “Siewert said, quoted by Huddersfield official website.
