Tottenham Hotspur once again put in a great performance in our Premier League clash against Huddersfield.

The already relegated Terriers were forced to leave North London with a deficit of four goals to nil.

Victor Wanyama gave Spurs an early advantage with Lucas Moura doubling our lead two minutes later.

The Brazilian added two more goals in the second-half and became the first player to score a hat-trick at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Lilywhites reclaimed the third spot in the Premier League table thanks to the convincing victory, and are in a good position to fight for the right to play in the Champions League next season.

However, the recent news of fans being banned from the stadium for persistent standing have left many supporters in shock.

According to the BBC, several fans have been banned since the opening of the new ground.

A message from Tottenham to supporters read: “It is important that everyone is able to see the match and enjoy it.

“We appreciate that fans will rise up at key moments in the match.

“Persistently standing for the whole match or for long periods, along with failing to heed requests from the stewards and fellow fans to be seated, is not acceptable behaviour, notwithstanding it’s against ground regulations.”

The length of the bans is not known.

Astonishingly, after the Huddersfield victory, the north London club thanked their supporters by posting a photo on Twitter which showed fans doing exactly what was forbidden – standing.

The reaction of the club’s fanbase will leave you in stitches.
