In 16th minute of the game, Ben Davies doubled the lead for his side with a well taken shot. It was a brilliant build up by Tottenham where Kane and Eriksen played crucial passes, leaving lurking Davies with an open net.

The Englishmen single-handedly ended Huddersfield challenge in the first half and made sure his side took all the three points from the game.
