When he was replaced in the final moments of the game, the Huddersfield fans showed their appreciation for the England striker with a standing ovation.

However, former Liverpool star Lawrenson is backing Tottenham to have too much for Huddersfield and is tipping the north London side to secure a comfortable victory.
