His hat-trick was complete deep into stoppage time, substitute Heung-Min Son's pass inside the defender finding Lucas who once again dispatched an excellent finish, the flawless end to a ideal afternoon.

Victor Wanyama could step in alongside Harry Winks and Christian Eriksen in midfield.

Alli's injury appears to be less serious, and the club said that the England midfielder would be assessed to determine whether he can play in tomorrow's game against Huddersfield.

Mauricio Pochettino has said he does not expect Harry Kane to feature again for Tottenham this season unless they reach the Champions League final.

Much sterner tests than Huddersfield lie ahead, including successive Champions League and Premier League matches at City next week, so Pochettino made seven changes, leaving Son Heung-min, Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Kieran Trippier on the bench.

Fourth-placed Tottenham are battling for a top-four finish to claim a Champions League spot for next season. He left the stadium on crutches.


All eyes were on Fernando Llorente and Lucas to see if they could fill the gap left by Kane and Son up front. We have a lot of players who played ninety minutes who are not in a condition to play tomorrow.

Showing their strength in depth, Tottenham deservedly took the lead thanks to two of their understudies in the 24th minute.

Ben Davies played the ball to Llorente and, when the striker was unable to get it under control it ran through to Wanyama, who got away from Hamer and opened the scoring.

Moura added their second just 144 seconds later as he rifled a low shot past Hamer after being played in by Moussa Sissoko.

But on the half-hour, Huddersfield should have hit back in their first meaningful attack, Jon Stankovic sending an effort wide from a corner. Two more late goals from Lucas topped off a professional performance from Tottenham, completing his hat-trick and securing his place in the answers to countless future pub quizzes.

The little lad had a kick around with his old man in adorable scenes following the full-time whistle.
