Tottenham Hotspur continued their fine form in the new stadium today as they romped to a 4-0 victory over Huddersfield.

Pochettino elected to field a second string team, with seven changes from the side that beat Man City in midweek.

Here are five things we learned from the win over Huddersfield:

No sign of new stadium blues-

Many predicted that Spurs would take some time to adapt to their new home, however there is no sign of that in N17. Tottenham have now played three, won three, kept three clean sheets, and scored seven in the process.

No Kane no problem-

Yet again, Tottenham showed no sign of dependency on their star man in his absence. In the last 40 games that Kane has missed Spurs have only lost six. Harry looks to be out for the rest of the season, but Tottenham have plenty of others ready to step up and fill the void.

Moura that-

One example of these stand in players in Lucas Moura, a man who has been on the fringe of the starting XI all season. However, when called upon, the Brazilian came in and scored a hat trick today, showing that he can chip in with some vital goals over the next two months.

Eriksen shows no signs of improvement-

However, Tottenham’s chief playmaker Christian Eriksen shows no sign of improving at the moment, after another poor showing today. The Dane misplaced the majority of his passes, gave the ball away time and time again, and fluffed any chance that came his way. Is he a man on his way out?

Wanyama is back-

Spurs fans finally got to see the best of Victor Wanyama again today for the first time since his return from injury. The midfield powerhouse won tackles and interceptions galore, while even showing some attacking prowess in taking it around the keeper and scoring the opening goal. Could be a vital asset for the season run in.
