“Spurs will take a narrow one-goal lead back to the Etihad in the second leg of the Champions League next week and who knows just how important Sergio Aguero’s early penalty miss will be, once the dust has settled?” Owen told BetVictor.
“Two games, two wins and two clean sheets for Spurs since they moved into the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and I would be very surprised if relegated Huddersfield dented that proud record at the weekend.”
