David Wagner has been hit by injury problems in recent weeks and the Huddersfield boss is still without striker Steve Mounie, who remains sidelined with a heel issue.

"But going forward it's a great Tottenham team, I love the manager, and I think it's a team that if they had played at White Hart Lane this year they would have been my tip for the Premier League". Casey Palmer, Daniel Williams, Collin Quaner, and Jon Gorenc-Stankovic are the players who will automatically miss the fixture after also missing their away barren draw at Burnley.

Huddersfield will need to successfully break the channel between Alderweireld and Trippier to disrupt Spurs. A versatile player, he's one to put in a rash challenge if tested, so Aaron Mooy would do well shake off his advances as early as possible and find other pockets of space to operate out of.

Huddersfield Town: 4-3-2-1 Jonas Loessl, Mathias Jorgensen, Chris Loewe, Christopher Schindler, Tom Smith, Jonathan Hogg, Aaron Mooy, Abdelhamid Sabiri, Elias Kachunga, Thomas Ince, and Laurent Depoitre.

Serge Aurier will have to serve a suspension while Erik Lamela, Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama remain absent. Sure, Huddersfield have only given up three goals in that time frame, but Tottenham are a step above.

This will be the first Premier League meeting between the two sides. They have to be behind us from the first whistle.

Kane isn't just unsafe in the Premier League, but the Englishman has been knocking in the goals in the Champions League.

The stage is set for Kane to grab the spotlight following a month wherein he's been in a lot of headlines for his fiery form.

The selection would have seen punters profit from four of Spurs' last six wins and the 11/10 (2.10) quote could be worthy of support once again ahead of Saturday's showdown. Although Huddersfield will look to mark him to ensure minimal damage, the striker now has the capability to wreak havoc upon even the strongest of teams.

Huddersfield will provide Spurs with tough opposition though.
