The Spurs, which have finished in the top three of the league standings in the last two seasons, will be keen to make their way back to the familiar zone with the early kick-off game. Although Huddersfield have been good this term, the team haven't won in their last four games. Eriksen, perhaps one of the league's most underrated players, is the main creative outlet for Spurs, and will drift deeper and wider when needed if the centre of the park is getting crowded.
Kane isn't just risky in the Premier League, but the Englishman has been knocking in the goals in the Champions League. This weekend, Kane will fancy his chances at some more goals as Spurs pay a visit to Huddersfield.
Wagner's side face Manchester United and Liverpool after Spurs, and the coach said: "It's time to have a smile on our faces and give them a game".
Jon Stankovic, Kasey Palmer, Danny Williams and Collin Quaner are all definitely out.
With no suspension, the home manager is expected to field the same team that earned him a crucial away point at Turf Moor Stadium.
"Nobody knows. I have no individual plan to stop the individual players of Tottenham". However, Pochetino will be glad to welcome back Delle Alli and Jan Vetongen, who were suspended for the Champions League win in Cyprus.
This will be the first Premier League meeting between the two sides.
However, none of those moves ever came to fruition and the 28-year-old has since gone onto start six of Tottenham's first nine matches across all competitions in 2017-18, with fellow midfielders Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele dealing with knee and ankle injuries respectively.
Harry Kane is in outstanding form right now.
In the middle of the park, Eric Dier provides protection for the back three, marshalling the ground ahead of them, breaking up play, marking opposition players out of the game and filling in deeper if Vertonghen or Alderweireld decide to step out and play the ball for any reason.
