Mauricio Pochettino lavishes praise on Son Heung-min

Tottenham Hotspur's Argentinian head coach Mauricio Pochettino walks away after complaining to the fourth official about Tottenham Hotspur's South Korean striker Son Heung Min yellow

Heung-min Son scored twice as Tottenham beat Huddersfield 2-0 at Wembley on Saturday to claim a 16th straight win against promoted clubs.

The Korea Republic global struck in each half to give the home side all three points at Wembley and move them into third in the table, at least temporarily.

Son seemed a little disappointed to be replaced by Erik Lamela with twenty minutes of the game to go, but Sherwood believes that Mauricio Pochettino may be saving the South Korean for bigger things.

Son heaped praise on England striker Kane, who has scored 35 goals in all competitions this season and has already equalled last term's tally.

The Spaniard has generally struggled to make an impact since the turn of the year, and Lucas' arrival at the end of January forced him out of the matchday squads for the matches against Arsenal, Juventus and Crystal Palace.

However, that treble against League One's bottom side has apparently not improved his position in the squad, or his long-term prospects at Tottenham - he was again omitted from the 18-man squad for today's match against Huddersfield.

Pochettino then took off Son, Mousa Dembele and Alli, suggesting all three can expect to start against Juve.

Son only played the last seven minutes of the first leg, in which Tottenham came from two goals down to salvage an impressive draw thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen. On that occasion, they won 1-0 on aggregate against AC Milan.

It was their 17th game unbeaten in all competitions and moved them up to provisional third place, a point ahead of Liverpool, who were playing later at home to Newcastle United.

"We have to accept that we tried everything that was possible".

Victory over Huddersfield kept Spurs in the driving seat for a return to the Champions League next season as they opened up a five-point lead on fifth-placed Chelsea.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes turning his side's temporary Wembley home into a fortress can ensure progress to the Champions League quarter-finals when they host Juventus on Wednesday.
