Tottenham Hotspur heads to Huddersfield Town without one of its key playmakers.

Eriksen had played every minute of the club’s season until Wednesday’s win over Watford in the League Cup.

Dele Alli played in Eriksen’s position during the victory, winning and converting a penalty kick.

He has two assists in six matches as Spurs recorded a 4W-2L record to open the Premier League campaign.

Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm are also out, meaning Paulo Gazzaniga is likely to get another start.
