Team news and form
Last six: DWLLWW
Kane is out of these Tottenham v Huddersfield predictions after picking up another ankle injury against City in midweek. It’s a huge blow for Spurs, as the England captain could miss the rest of the season. Dele Alli is also a doubt after hurting his arm just before being subbed off on Tuesday. Erik Lamela and Eric Dier are both injured, while Serge Aurier is likely to miss out with a hamstring problem.
Last six: WLLLLL
Jan Siewert is hopeful three players will overcome injury problems to feature on Saturday. Philip Billing, Laurent Depoitre and Demeaco Duhaney will all bid to prove their fitness ahead of these weekend football predictions. Adama Diakhaby and Abdelhamid Sabiri are both set to miss out for the Terriers though.
Tottenham vs Huddersfield prediction, preview and betting tips
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium plays host to its third game this weekend, and Spurs have a great chance to maintain their 100% record at their new home. Huddersfield are already gone and are in awful form, so surely there’s only one winner in these football predictions.
Tottenham have won all three Premier League meetings between the sides so far. They’ve scored eight goals in those games, while Huddersfield are yet to hit the back of the net. Kane may have scored half of Tottenham’s goals against the Terriers, but Spurs are full of quality. They’ve already shown this season they can cope without their talisman, and they must do so once again.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side look like they’ve recovered from their recent blip heading into this Tottenham vs Huddersfield prediction. They went five without a win in the Premier League, losing four times. All of those defeats were away from home though, while Spurs are yet to concede a goal in their new stadium.
Huddersfield meanwhile have lost their last five matches, failing to score in three of those. They did manage three away to West Ham, but the Terriers have only scored 16 times in their 32 other fixtures this season. You can bet against both teams scoring on Saturday at 17/20 with 888sport. Tottenham meanwhile are priced at evens to win this game to nil in your free betting tips and predictions.
With the Terriers on a run of 19 defeats in their last 21 fixtures, the question in your Tottenham vs Huddersfield betting tips looks like being how many Spurs will win by. The Terriers have conceded an average of 1.9 goals per game this season, while Tottenham have won the last two meetings between the sides 2-0. The same result here is 7/1 in your football score predictions, rising to 23/1 if you include Son as the first goalscorer.
Tottenham vs Huddersfield first goalscorer predictions
Son scored a huge goal for Spurs against Man City in the week, and stepped up the last time Kane was injured. The South Korea international has three goals in his last four games for club and country. All of those have been to break the deadlock, and Son is 11/2 in your first goalscorer odds here. You can get a tasty 85/1 with Betfair on the forward scoring both of Tottenham’s goals in a 2-0 win, just like he did in this fixture last season.
