Lukaku was kept relatively quiet at Old Trafford until the 86th minute, when he tapped in for an 11th goal in 10 games for his new club.
The last meeting of the two sides came in a League Cup second round tie in 1972-73, with goals from Alan Gilzean and Martin Chivers handing Spurs a 2-1 win. Rashford beat a defender easily on the left wing and raced into the area before squaring for Mata to finish from 10 meters.
Spurs took the game to the hosts from the first whistle, with star striker Harry Kane causing havoc in the opposition penalty area before seeing his firmly struck, pivoting shot blocked for a corner. It was the first time Fellaini has scored twice in a game for United since joining in 2013.
Tottenham Hotspur make the long trip to the John Smith's Stadium with the opportunity to move into third place, while Mauricio Pochettino's side possess a 100 per cent record on the road in all competitions since the start of the season.
Spurs continued their assault on the Huddersfield defence in the second half, and Kane nearly immediately claimed his hat-trick, after somehow failing to get on the end of what would surely have been a tap-in from Christian Eriksen's devilish corner.
Harry Kane has scored four goals in his last three league appearances.
"I feel good, I feel confident and I am there to put the goals away".
"It's hard speaking about Kane every three days", Pochettino added.
"How he presses and works without the ball is fantastic".
"I'm delighted with the win, it's a good week for us as a team and we've just got to continue our form after the global break".
The England global opened the scoring with a neat finish in the ninth minute, before Ben Davies doubled the visitors' lead after some fine one-touch passing.
The only blot on Spurs' game was a caution for midfielder Dele Alli for simulation contact inside the Huddersfield box.
The first-half ended with a flurry of action, with both sides hitting the woodwork once and the second began on a much more sedate note as Spurs were content with controlling possession and understandably were content with their 3-0 lead. A poor result against Swansea the following week was proceeded by a 13 point haul against West Ham.
