Tottenham could take time to tame Terriers
Spurs have struggled to up the tempo early
Tottenham have been making a lot of slow starts to matches this season and the trend may continue at Huddersfield where they may have to wait until the second half to get their noses in front.
Spurs have been taking too long to up the tempo in games and they haven't scored inside the first 40 minutes of any of their last seven matches.
Huddersfield are likely to defend diligently and deep and Spurs, without the creative influence of the injured Christian Eriksen, may take a while to break them down.
