Chelsea's Spanish defender Marcos Alonso controls the ball during the English Premier League football match between Huddersfield Town and Chelsea at the John Smith's stadium in Huddersfield, northern England on December 12, 2017.
The La Liga club have progressed from six of their past seven Champions League knockout ties against English opposition - the exception being their 2012 semi-final defeat by Chelsea, when the London club went on to lift the trophy.
Lossl then saved well from Hazard to deny Chelsea a fourth before Tom Ince, who has still yet to score for Town, saw his effort clip Thibaut Courtois and dribble away to safety. "We did pretty well today, scored three goals".
Spurs have endured a tricky recent spell in the Premier League but their performances in Europe this season suggest they have matured under manager Mauricio Pochettino after the disappointment of crashing out in the group stage previous year.
Huddersfield will look to keep things tight for as long as possible on Tuesday, but Chelsea should have enough quality to emerge victorious - although it may well be by a narrow margin. "I think he played a really good game", the Italian said of the 23-year-old.

"This league is not simple, and we have to fight to find a place in the Champions League".
Chelsea suffered a blow before the game after top scorer Alvaro Morata was ruled out with a back injury, and the first half was a tense affair, with very little in it for the first 20 minutes besides Pedro's disallowed goal in the first five minutes.
"The way we get in people's faces, we stop people playing, we win our tackles, we win our battles, we make it hard for teams".
"We must be ready to play at home".
They also faced off in the semi-final in 2009, and this time it was Barca who benefitted from an injury-time goal. We are still 11 points behind Manchester City.
Marcus Peters chucks penalty flag into the crowd
Lee, a second-year linebacker, has been a focal point in the Jets' defense and played well after struggling early in the season. After this point, Peters left the field and originally it was believed that officials had tossed him from the game.
