Tottenham will aim to continue their flawless away record when they face Huddersfield Town in Saturday’s early kick-off.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won at Newcastle United, Everton and West Ham thus far this campaign, though they have failed to take maximum points from a home game, losing to Chelsea and drawing with both Burnley and Swansea City.
Huddersfield, meanwhile, have enjoyed a stellar start to their Premier League campaign following promotion, beating Crystal Palace and Newcastle, and earning draws with Southampton, Leicester City and Burnley. A 2-0 defeat to West Ham is the only blot on their copybook.

BETTING & MATCH ODDS
Spurs are massive favourites to win at 2/5, according to dabblebet, with Huddersfield rated at 15/2 outsider to cause an upset. The draw is priced at 10/3.
Spurs have endured something of a Jekyll and Hyde season thus far. Pedestrian and lacking in attacking intelligence at Wembley in the Premier League, Pochettino’s men have been irrepressible on the road, and have yet to drop points on their travels.
They have lost just once this season, to Chelsea, but Huddersfield boast a similar record and they have only been beaten by West Ham.
Managed by David Wagner, the Terriers are on course to be one of the fairytale stories of the season, but they have yet to face a top-six team, and Spurs will test their top-flight mettle.
Fresh from a 3-0 win over APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League, Tottenham will expect to claim another three points on Saturday.
