Tottenham made light work of already-relegated Huddersfield on Saturday as a Lucas Moura hat-trick helped them to a 4-0 victory at the brand new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The hosts took the lead in the 24th minute after a loose ball fell nicely into the path of Victor Wanyama, who coolly rounded goalkeeper Ben Hamer to slot home.

Spurs doubled their lead three minutes later when Lucas latched onto a through ball from Moussa Sissoko and arrowed a shot into the bottom left-hand corner.

Moura wrapped up the points for Tottenham with his second goal of the game two minutes from time, smartly controlling Christian Eriksen's low cross with one foot before

And he capped off a fine individual performance with a spectacular third late on to clinch the match ball against a woeful Terriers side.
