Generally, home turf is where most sportsmen are comfortable, and football teams are no different. Tottenham Hotspur remained unbeaten at home for the entire 2016-17 season. But that was at White Hart Lane, and it was truly home. Since their temporary move to Wembley, they have been uncomfortable at home at the best of times and completely out of sorts at the worst times. But they have transposed their home form from last season to their away form this season.
Spurs are yet to lose an away match this season. In four away matches so far, they have scored eleven goals and conceded only two. On Saturday, they travel to Huddersfield and will be determined to keep their away record intact before heading into the second international break of the season. Here, we take a look at the players who can give Pochettino’s side the best chance of doing that.
Tottenham’s first-team goalkeeper has started this season in a slightly underwhelming fashion as compared to last season. But his performances have been kind of representative of the team’s home conundrums. Overall, Lloris has made 8 saves, two from five shots on target (40%) at home and five out of seven shots on target (71%) away. Huddersfield’s forwards have a tough ask of shooting past this excellent goalkeeper.
