Pochettino happy for Spurs, Kane after Watford win

Kieran Trippier – 9

The former winger told talkSPORT on a man chasing down a hat-trick of Premier League Golden Boot awards: "The main problem with Harry Kane is, when he is not on the goal sheet, his impact on the game with his team is not as relevant as what it was before". Alli passes the double-digit goal thread as this was his tenth of the season.

Lloris kept Spurs ahead with a string of saves before half-time, turning away efforts from Gray, Doucoure and, most impressively, Richarlison.

"Everything meant the atmosphere wasn't great to play, but I think the most important thing is to be in a good position in the table".

Following the match, Pochettino admitted that it had not been one of Spurs' most eye-catching performances, but he was relieved to pick up all three points. Win all three and Spurs will finish third, leaving Chelsea and Liverpool to fight it out for fourth.

Tottenham has fallen flat in the performances that matter.

Pochettino's Spurs have been a force to reckon with this season as they have beaten the mighty Real Madrid at home. To lose to United in the FA Cup and then Juve in the Champions League, it's not exactly a reason to just assume the season sucked. Of course maybe it wasn't a great performance. Pochettino is taking the approach of forming a young group with chemistry and turning it into a title side. "They're up against it before they even start, they're outperforming and overachieving season after season".

Kanye Just Crashed the TMZ Newsroom to Say Slavery Was a Choice
Like, you were there for 400 years and it's all of you all? Ye told the TMZ Live reporters that "we're mentally imprisoned". Y'know, there'll be mistakes, there'll be flaws the way I communicate today, because we're human beings, we're flawed.

Tottenham: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele (Wanyama 63), Eriksen, Alli (Lamela 82), Son (Sissoko 74), Kane.

"Hugo Lloris was fantastic and showed why he is one of the best in the world".

Watford has had a dive down the table in this bad run of form.

The Lillywhites who were without a win in their last two league games had seen the lead between them and fifth-placed Chelsea reduced to two points following the Blues' 1-0 win against Swansea on Saturday. Theoretically, they could still get relegated.

His new deal guarantees two more years with the option of an additional 12 months, but he has said he will not finish is managerial career at Old Trafford. "The next game will be important for us".

Watford remain on 38 points, likely enough for another season in the top flight - but too close for comfort. The relegation battle resumes next weekend for Matchday 37.
