In the Standard Model, the associated production of the Higgs boson with a single top quark (tH) is a rare process as a result of destructive interference between leading-order tree-level diagrams involving the top-Higgs and W-Higgs couplings. Current data at the LHC is not yet sensitive for observation of the Standard Model process. However, due to anomalous Higgs couplings the rate can be larger making it accessible with current data. Results of such an analysis will be presented. Additionally, to test the reach of sensitivity with the future High Luminosity LHC, a simple projection study has been performed taking into account evolution of uncertainties, statistical as well as sytematic. In this talk we will discuss the results of the expected limits and the effect on the top-Higgs coupling measurement.
