Lucas Moura scored a hat trick as Tottenham defeated Huddersfield 4-0 at the New White Hart Lane Stadium.

Victor Wanyama opened the scoring early in the match before Lucas Moura wrapped things up with three stunning goals to help Tottenham to 3rd place.

Lucas Moura becomes the fourth Brazilian to score a hat trick in the Premier League and also the first player to do same in the new stadium.

Alphonso Alves, Robinho, Firmino are the other Brazilians with hat trick in the EPL.

Spurs fielded a second string team in readiness for the Champions League second leg against Manchester City next week.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino told Match of the Day: “I am so pleased. Football is about the squad, the collective. Of course we had some injuries after Manchester City like Alli and Kane, and we were forced to make changes and we needed to provide fresh legs and it’s good because we have a tough period ahead and the performance was very professional.

“It’s always important to open the game and score in the first half to give belief and confidence.

After a few minutes we score the second goal and lift the stadium and fans – it’s fantastic to play here and gives the players fantastic energy and belief.”

Tottenham have leapfrogged Chelsea as the Blues battle it out with Liverpool on Sunday.
