Huddersfield Town missed a chance to distance themselves from the relegation zone in a 2-0 defeat by Everton at The John Smith's Stadium.
The Terriers got off to a fast start and dominated the early proceedings, but lacked the clinical touch required in the final third. After being on the front foot for the majority of the first half, it was Everton who took the lead on 39 minutes after Van La Parra conceded possession cheaply in midfield. Theo Walcott snapped up the ball and feed Cenk Tosun, who set himself and swept the ball past Jonas Lonas at full stretch. Town's wastefulness continued in the second-half, with Alex Pritchard missing their best chance from inside the six yard box. Laurent Depoitre was brought on late, but Everton wrapped the match with a goal in the 77th minute. The defeat cuts Huddersfield's advantage over the bottom three to just three points with three matches left to play. Apr 28 - 1:49 PM

Huddersfield Town had little to offer in terms of a goal threat as they were overmatched in a 2-0 loss to Tottenham.

The Terriers picked up six huge points in their last two matches but it was a lot to ask to get a positive result from a Spurs side in sharp form. Huddersfield found themselves on the back foot from the jump. An early positive highlight was a nice sliding block of a shot by Christopher Schindler, keeping the game level, but Spurs would take the lead not long thereafter. After the half hour mark, a tactical change saw Thomas Ince replace a noticeable frustrated Collin Quaner and Alex Pritchard, who picked up a knock earlier in the half had to exit just moments before the halftime whistle. With two first half subs, David Wagner did not have many options left to find a spark in the second half, and Huddersfield barely tested the Tottenham goal. They look to rebound next weekend in a huge match against Swansea City.

Huddersfield Town have now lost three straight matches following a 2-0 defeat at Stoke City.

Town boss David Wagner handed Alex Pritchard his full debut and brought in Steve Mounie for Laurent Depoitre up front. However, the attacking changes weren't enough to get his side past Stoke. The Terriers did manage three shots on target, including a Mounie strike from distance late on, though none were enough to put Jack Butland under pressure. Joe Allen struck early in the second-half and Mame Biram Diouf added a second with 20 minutes remaining, securing all three points for the Potters. The defeat leaves Huddersfield three points about the relegation zone and winless in their last six matches.

Huddersfield Town has completed the permanent signing of Alex Pritchard from Norwich City on a three-and-a-half year deal.

The 24-year-old joins the Terriers for an undisclosed fee understood to be in the region of £12m. In Pritchard, the club has added a versatile playmaker that can operate as a number 10 and alleviate the creative pressure off Aaron Mooy in midfield. The former England Under-21 international scored eight goals and tallied 12 assists in 43 appearances for Norwich after arriving from Tottenham in 2016. Huddersfield boss David Wagner commented: "He is exactly the type of player that we like to work with at this Club. Alex is a young, British player who arrives as one of the top performers in the Sky Bet Championship and with a desire to prove himself in the Premier League." Pritchard links up with Town in time to be in contention to make his debut this weekend, and is someone to key an eye on in fantasy.

Norwich City have acquired winger Alex Pritchard from Tottenham for a fee of £8million.

The 23-year-old joins the Canaries on a four-year deal and should help bridge the gap left behind when Norwich parted ways with Nathan Redmond earlier in the summer. Pritchard was seemingly hours away from a confirmed move to Brighton and Hove Albion but the Canaries swooped in and offered a deal with improved personal terms for the player. Pritchard had a tough go last season, playing little for Spurs in the first half of the campaign because of injury then getting little playing time when loaned out to West Brom in the second half. This season, he should see plenty of the pitch in the Championship and, if the Canaries can gain promotion, could emerge on fantasy radars a year from now.

Tottenham's Alex Pritchard looked poised to move to Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion but Norwich City have made a late bid in an attempt to land the winger.

Brighton and Hove were on the verge of making Pritchard their record-breaking signing but Norwich have entered the race with £8m bid and what has been reported as "improved personal terms" to entice the 23-year-old to fly with the Canaries. After the sale of Nathan Redmond, Norwich are seeking some attacking help and, after missing out on the chance to land Ross McCormack, are now ready to swoop in and land Pritchard, who was thought to have already had a medical check with Brighton and Hove. A deal looks to get done before the end of the week.

Swansea City are in the market for a winger this summer and, with the announcement that he is not a part of Mauricio Pochettino's plans, Alex Pritchard has emerged on their radar.

Championship clubs Leeds, Newcastle United and Norwich City are also interested in Pritchard, who never had an opportunity to impress under Pochettino in 2015/2016, having been injured for much of the first half of the season and then went on loan to West Brom in January, making only three appearances as a substitute in his time there. He did enjoy a promising loan spell at Brentford the previous season and the 23-year-old attacking player is currently valued at £8m.

West Brom's recent scoring woes only seemed to continue in the Northeast in a 1-0 loss at Newcastle, leaving Tony Pulis and the Baggies scrambling for answers up top.

For the second time in the past three Premier League matches, West Brom failed to record a shot on goal despite taking seven shots. Pulis decided to meddle with the lineup once again, starting Victor Anichebe at forward while putting Craig Gardner on the wing. But both were pulled by the end of the match with Saido Berahino emerging from his exile for a full half of action while Alex Pritchard, who nearly scored in the final 10 minutes off a free-kick, made his debut for the club since arriving on loan from Spurs last week. But the Baggies are dropping fast after their Premier League winless streak extended to five, putting them just six points clear of the relegation zone in 14th.

Tottenham have loaned young winger Alex Pritchard to West Bromwich Albion for the remainder of the season.

It is interesting that Spurs are willing to do business with the Baggies after attempts in two separate windows to land Saido Berahino have been dangled but West Brom refuse to strike a deal. The 22-year-old Pritchard has made only one league appearance this season for Tottenham, a six minute cameo against Everton back in Week 4. He is still coming back from an ankle injury that has sidelined him for a while but the latest reports have him being ready for action soon. West Brom are always looking for someone to help in the goal department, so Pritchard should be given a shot a pitch time at some point, but he is not someone to rush out and pick up in any fantasy formats.

Tottenham have confirmed that Alex Pritchard has been ruled out until 2016 after undergoing surgery to cure a troublesome ankle problem.

Pritchard picked up the original injury while representing his country at the Under-21 European Championships [last summer] and although the midfielder returned in August he managed just five minutes of Premier League football. Sidelined since early September and despite the clubs’ best efforts to remedy a continued [niggling] ankle issue the decision was taken for Pritchard to go under the knife. It is envisioned that youngster will return to training in around three months. On a more positive note Heung-Min Son, Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb are all expected to re-join the group next week although Pochettino will assess the trio ahead of the Liverpool game as they all lack match-fitness.

Alex Pritchard will return to Tottenham for further treatment after picking up an ankle injury while representing England at the Under-21 European Championships.

Pritchard limped off during the Group B victory over Sweden on Sunday following a heavy challenge and scans on Monday confirmed the Spurs midfielder had sustained ligament damage although the full extent of the problem is still not known. Pochettino had confirmed prior to the tournament that he wants Pritchard to be a part of his first team plans after the 22 year-old enjoyed a successful spell on-loan at Brentford last season. Pritchard is the second England player to be ruled because of injury joining Saido Berahino who returned to West Brom because of a knee ligament issue.
