Ledley King delivers verdict after Tottenham win against Watford

Ledley King delivers verdict after Tottenham win against Watford

No other team boasts three scorers of ten or more goals this campaign which says a lot about the strength of Mauricio Pochettino's starting eleven.

The two teams have met seven times in the Premier League, with undefeated Spurs on a four-game winning streak (W5, D2). Pochettino confirmed the north Londoners' top goalscorer was fit enough to take his place on the bench and was likely to be involved at some stage.

The Saints forward has managed to net 25 goals in 94 appearances for his club, which has consisted of many substitute appearances since his comeback from injury.

Tottenham would, at least temporarily, cut Chelsea's lead to four points with a win. The goal knocked the stuffing out of Watford, and Spurs wrapped up the win before halftime, Dier smashing a volley into the ground and past Gomes.

Son Heung-min scored twice and rattled the woodwork twice as Tottenham beat Watford 4-0 to keep the pressure on Chelsea.

"The Hornets will put up more of a fight than they did when Spurs brushed them aside at Vicarage Road on New Year's Day, and they can not be any worse defensively than they were that day, but it is hard to see them stopping this Tottenham side".

Kieran Trippier pulled a long ball back across goal but, with Gomes taken out of the game, Janssen did not react in time and it hit his thigh before bouncing off the bar.

"Tottenham" never lost a match at home this season in the Premier League and for the match against "Watford" in general fits with ten victories in "Huarte Hart Leyn" in a row.

Without Kane, Spurs have instead looked to his England teammate Alli for inspiration and it was the 20-year-old who gave the hosts the lead shortly after the half-hour. "That is a good opportunity to be aware that in the future to win trophies it is all about to keep going, to push, to believe, and respect the way that you play, that is the most important".

After recovering from a goal down to win in the final two minutes of the mid-week trip to Swansea City, Spurs did everything that was asked of them against a poor Watford side with little still to play for this season.

Spurs have now won their last 14 matches at White Hart Lane across all competitions, whereas Watford have won just one of their last 12 away games.

Son needed less than 10 second-half minutes to double his tally for the afternoon, sweeping home another Trippier cross at the back post.

Son could easily have ended the game with a hat-trick but dragged a one-on-one wide in the 81st minute, while the returning Harry Kane smashed a free-kick against the crossbar in stoppage time.

Spurs's prolific recent efforts at home and Watford's scoring struggles on their travels suggest a big home win could be on the cards here.
