Harry Kane to miss 3 months, Dele Alli has fracture

Pochettino's understudies filled in nicely as Kenya midfielder Victor Wanyama rolled in the opener before Brazilian forward Lucas took centre-stage with an eye-catching treble.

Spurs leapfrogged Chelsea into third in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon by cruising to a third straight win in their new stadium.

The routine nature of the win will also have been comforting to Pochettino, who was without the injured Harry Kane and Dele Alli and left man of the moment Son Heung-min on the bench ahead of the Champions League quarter-final second leg at Manchester City on Wednesday. "It was my first hat-trick in Europe".

"He was so upset after the game, it was a hard moment for him", Pochettino said.

Pochettino said: "If we assess form since November, he can be a contender".

"If he wasn't playing football and he wasn't going over on it then I wouldn't do anything about it but every time you turn your ankle you run the risk of lateral ligament damage in the ankle".

"It is going to help and bring him confidence".

"Nobody should feel that we don't care about what happened in the last few months".

We have five weeks - If we are into the final of the Champions League, maybe he will play but we'll see.

When asked whether he believed Kane could return this season, Pochettino said: "We'll see, there is five weeks, it is going to be hard".

There was no further addition to the scoreline in the first period, but there so almost was two minutes after the break when Juan Foyth clipped a ball in to Llorente in the area, who superbly controlled and shot on the turn but his effort smacked against the crossbar. "It all depends on the time, we will see if we arrive in a position where he is comfortable to play". "We'll see and we'll take a decision that is best for everyone". We need to provide fresh legs and make sure we get the three points. "We are optimistic, but you know there is doubt".

For Huddersfield, who saw Juninho Bacuna's free-kick tipped onto the crossbar, this was their 19th defeat in 21 matches as they count down the matches until their Premier League journey ends.
