Fernando Llorente has not had the best of times in a Tottenham Hotspur shirt, and the former Swansea City striker was left frustrated against Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

Tottenham enhanced their chances of finishing in the top four of the Premier League with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Huddersfield at White Hart Lane.

Lucas Moura was the star of the show, as the Brazil international winger scored a hat-trick for the North London outfit.


Llorente started the match and played for 87 minutes, and the Spanish striker failed to score.

The 34-year-old striker was unlucky in the second half when his effort came back off the Huddersfield crossbar.

The former Athletic Bilbao and Juventus striker held the ball up well and also played his role in Victor Wanyama’s opening goal of the match.

Tottenham legend Ledley King was following the match for Sky Sports, and the former England international central defender gave his take on the display produced by Llorente.

King said about Llorente on Sky Sports Main Event on Saturday afternoon (3:01pm, April 13, 2019): “The goal didn’t come, but I think his overall game was very good. He had a big part to play in the team’s performance. He was a handful, he held the ball up well.”
