Tottenham Edge Watford To Keep Champions League Hopes Alive

Tottenham Edge Watford To Keep Champions League Hopes Alive

"If you take [Diego] Maradona, Ronaldinho... they were the most skilful players around - they could do things with the football other professional players could only dream about". It's hard to win games.

But the forward, who now has 27 league goals and 38 for the season, can cope with criticism as he tries to catch Liverpool's Mo Salah (31) for the Golden Boot as Premier League top scorer.

A pair of first-half saves from captain Lloris prevented Watford from equalising following Alli's opener, Andre Gray and Richarlison denied by the France worldwide.

After losing to Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final on April 21, there is still a sense of disappointment amongst the Lilywhites faithful and the club.

"Maybe it wasn't the greatest performance but the aim is to win.it will be a successful season if we finish in the top four".

The visitors continued to create chances, forcing Lloris to be sharp to stop efforts by Abdoulaye Doucoure and Richarlison, who almost equalized for Watford in the 44th minute. "We were playing against a very good team and it was very hard in the second half". The former Paris St. Germain centre-back has built a young, dynamic team with an English core and has overseen the growth of Harry Kane, Delle Alli, and Christian Eriksen into stardom.

One person that Pochettino has impressed though is former Manchester United defender Gary Neville, who believes that under his guidance Spurs have overachieved in terms of what they've spent compared to their Premier League rivals.

For Watford, the result means they will have to wait at least another week to get the three points they need to be sure of spending another season in the EPL. "I would like to have played better over the last few games but so would the team".

"People forget that last season we finished second and the season before third - we were so close to winning it". "In my mind I'm trying to get to that 30 mark", said Kane.

"What more can you say about him. he's a fantastic striker and I'm happy he scored again". A year ago I got 29 goals so I'd like to beat that but we'll see what happens.
