  • Son finishes first half team goal
  • Then latches onto beautiful Kane cross
  • Spurs move third for time being

Heung-Min Son scored a pair of goals as Tottenham Hotspur cruised past Huddersfield Town 2-0 at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Spurs are unbeaten in 17 matches and hasn’t lost to a promoted side in 16. They are a point ahead of Liverpool, who kicks off versus Newcastle to finish Saturday’s matches.

Huddersfield Town sees its two-match winning run end, and is three points clear of the drop zone.

There was an early injury… to a referee. Mike Jones hurt his calf in warm-up and needed to swap spots with fourth official Kevin Friend.

Jonas Lossl made a fine save on Harry Kane, and the latter won a dangerous free kick in the 19th minute. Christian Eriksen presided over the chance, and his shot was deflected wide of the goal by the wall.

Son scored a terrific goal to give Spurs a well-earned lead, dancing around Lossl to finish a very well-worked team goal. It started with an Eriksen pick and fine vision by Eric Dier.

Lossl made another good stop on Kane in the 38th minute, collecting the well-protected rebound.

Terence Kongolo got away with what should’ve been a penalty kick award to Son and Spurs.

The South Korean wasn’t deterred and scored a goal within two minutes when Kane delivered a remarkable cross over the Town defense and onto the path of Son.

His second, Spurs second, Town’s death knell on the day.

West Brom 1-2 Huddersfield Town: Terriers climb

  • Van la Parra gives Terriers lead
  • Mounie makes it 2-0
  • Dawson pullback not enough

Rajiv Van la Parra and Steve Mounie scored second half goals to boost Huddersfield Town four points clear of the drop zone with a 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Saturday.

Craig Dawson scored to give the Baggies hope of a comeback, but it was deflated and West Brom is now seven points back of safety with 10 matches to play.

West Brom saw an early chance fall to Salomon Rondon, but the Venezuelan blazed over the bar.

Huddersfield were unlucky with a chance produced by Florent Hadergjonaj, as an Alex Pritchard shot caught a teammate in the face and the Terriers couldn’t clean up the loose ball.

Matt Phillips provided a typical fine cross to James McClean near the halftime whistle, but the Irish attacker belted it high.

Town took the lead after halftime, as Van la Parra’s mishit cross was rescued by Collin Quaner and sent into the goal by the same man who bungled the cross.

And Mounie made West Brom’s short-term and long-term fate look dim by putting down a second Town marker off an assist from club record signing Pritchard.

Hold on, though.

Dawson had an answer for the hosts off a Chris Brunt cross, and it was nearly level when Jonas Lossl denied Brunt late on.

Man United 2-0 Huddersfield: Red Devils ease to win

  • Sanchez scores first United
  • Red Devils now 13 points behind Man City
  • Huddersfield without a win in last 8 PL games

Manchester United beat Huddersfield Town 2-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday with second half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez getting the job done.

Jose Mourinho’s men were the better team throughout (with 16 shots and 78 percent of possession) and although he dropped Paul Pogba to the bench, United had plenty in the tank to get by a Huddersfield side horribly out of form.

United remain in second place and have 56 points, while Huddersfield drop into the bottom three and have 24 points.

Jesse Lingard had the first big chance of the game as he was played through but his low shot was saved well by Jonas Lossl.

Then came a moment of controversy as youngster Scott McTominay was clattered into in the box by Huddersfield defender Terrence Kongolo but no penalty kick was given despite plenty of protests from the home fans.

There was another penalty shout for United soon after Sanchez went down in the box and the Chilean also had a shot well saved by Lossl.

Huddersfield improved when Aaron Mooy came on to replace Philip Billing who was injured but the Terriers rarely threatened in attack.

United piled the pressure on Huddersfield’s goal in the second half as Sanchez had a shot blocked but the visiting team continued to throw their bodies on the line for the cause.

That pressure finally paid off as Lukaku put United ahead with a volley from Juan Mata‘s cross to make it 1-0.

Paul Pogba, who was left out of the starting lineup, came off the bench and moments later United won a penalty kick as sub Michael Heffele tripped Sanchez.

The Chilean stepped up to take the penalty and although Lossl saved well down to his right, Sanchez tucked home the rebound for his first United goal to put the result beyond doubt.

  • Reds onto 50 points
  • Tied with third-place Chelsea
  • Salah scores 19th of season

Emre Can, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah scored as Liverpool dominated Huddersfield Town 3-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday.

The Reds are now level with Chelsea on 50 points before the Blues take the pitch on Wednesday.

Town is just a point ahead of the drop zone with 24 points. Four Premier League clubs from 15th to 18th have 23 points.

Salah, as noted on the broadcast, now has as many goals this season as the entire Huddersfield Town squad.

Liverpool had little trouble bouncing back from its brutal loss to Swansea City, though Huddersfield Town found moments of threat against the Virgil Van Dijk-less Reds.

The opener from Can’s boot was powerful, ripped through the 18 with venom and inside the near post.

And the Reds made it a two-goal lead when Firmino darted along the end line to fire home from an extreme angle.

Some blowouts are on the scoreboard, while others are not: Sadio Mane and James Milner were both denied would-be goals by Jonas Lossl as it stayed 2-0 beyond the hour mark.

Mane made a perfect run to give Can a shot at an assist, but the snakebit Senegalese sensation headed wide of the frame.

Kevin Friend denied Huddersfield Town shouts for a penalty when Steve Mounie was dropped after a tugging match with Andy Robertson in the 72nd minute.

Liverpool did get a penalty when Can was bundled over in the 77th minute. Salah didn’t miss his shot.

Stoke started the better of the two teams as Charlie Adam flashed an effort just wide from long range, while at the other end Steve Mounie flashed an effort just wide. Huddersfield had some

Ryan Shawcross headed over and although Stoke dominated possession, they struggled to get in-behind a stubborn Huddersfield defense.

The Potters’ best chance of the first half came last. Xherdan Shaqiri raced free right on half time but Jonas Lossl made a great stop to deny the Swiss winger lobbing him.

Shaqiri had an acrobatic effort ruled out for offside, yet Lambert’s men soon made up for their missed chances. Choupo-Moting’s cross from the right found Allen at the back post and he slotted home to send the home fans, and Lambert, wild.

Soon after Lambert was jumping for joy on the sidelines agains as Choupo-Moting’s pass found Shaqiri who teed up Diouf to finish and make it 2-0.
