Tottenham next face Juventus in the Champions League last 16 at Wembley on Wednesday after a 2-2 draw in Turin.

"We have said this before, and I think everybody is able to leave with their heads up and we will prepare for a very exciting game which we have next at our fortress of the John Smith's Stadium [against Swansea next Saturday]".

He added: "We can say Wembley is our home - and that is so important for the team".

The Argentine has been in charge of Spurs since May 2014, and has worked wonders, transforming his team into perennial title contenders and genuine challengers for the Champions League. "Now for the fans and the team, they feel good here, they feel positive".

Speaking amid the reflection a birthday can bring, he said: "When I started as a manager I was 36, I said, "Okay, I will be a manager and my limit is 50". "We have a great relationship, as manager and player and as men".

They are a point ahead of Liverpool, who kicks off versus Newcastle to finish Saturday's matches.

Tottenham threatened once more through Son, as he got away from three opponents before finding Aurier on the right, but his cross was cleared. Dele Alli sprung the offside trap with a weighted ball for Son to latch on to. He notched one of the assists of the season when he rolled Jonjoe Kenny and crossed for Kane against Everton and he almost repeated the trick after 17 minutes, leaving Florent Hadergjonaj for dead with a delicious dummy and crossing for Kane, whose shot was saved by Jonas Lossl.

It was all Spurs deserved as it had been one way traffic throughout the opening 45.

With seven played the same duo were involved again as the England midfield drifted away from a Huddersfield rival on the left, but his through ball to Kane was just in front of the striker. Time is occasionally Son's enemy - he often makes hard finishes look easy and easy finishes look hard - but he easily rounded Lossl and fired home.

Spurs fans shouldn't worry too much. Huddersfield offered huff and puff as they faced a constant procession of Spurs possession, but it felt like Spurs were toying with their opponents and content to see things out.

And Kane's failure to continue his scoring streak was the only negative of a comfortable afternoon for the hosts as he skewed wide when completely unmarked from an Eriksen corner 10 minutes from time.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris; Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Dier, Dembele (Sissoko 76); Eriksen, Alli (Moura 82), Son (Lamela 70); Kane.

Subs not used: Vorm, Trippier, Rose, Wanyama.
