Spurs labour, but still edge closer to Champions League spot

Posted May 01, 2018

Harry Kane did his talking on the pitch as Tottenham reasserted themselves in the race for the Champions League with a 2-0 win over Watford.

With three games to play, Spurs now have a five-point cushion over fifth-placed Chelsea in the fight for Champions League qualification.

"We conceded cheaply in our box and weren't able to score goals and if you don't control the boxes it is hard to win games", said Watford manager Javi Gracia, whose side remain 13th, six points clear of the relegation zone. I am very happy because the three points now put us in a very good position.

"It was a good night for us".

"We conceded a few chances but Hugo Lloris showed fantastic skill and that's why he's one of the best keepers in the world", added Pochettino whose side kept a clean sheet for the first time in six league games thanks mainly to the France global.

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.

The Englishman tapped the ball home from close range after he was set up Trippier for his 27th goal of the season, four fewer than top scorer Mohamed Salah.

Goedert will likely line up all over the field for the Eagles, splitting out wide, at tight end, in the slot and in the backfield. And this is the ideal move to make sure you get better. "And I said, 'Man, that'd be the most incredible thing ever'".

The goalkeeper has come under intense pressure after mistakes leading to goals in three straight matches against Chelsea, Stoke and Man City, and he was not selected for the FA Cup semifinal defeat to Manchester United.

Spurs nearly had a third in the 68th minute when Belgium defender Jan Vertonghen met a Trippier free kick but his header came back off the post, while Kane had an effort ruled offside and substitute Moussa Sissoko fired over from close range. "In my mind I'm trying to get to that 30 mark", said Kane.

"They were free to play with no pressure because I think they are safe and they tried to play with freedom".

"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". What we can say more about him? "I feel good and sharp, I could have a got a couple more [against Watford] but I'm good and want to finish strong". You felt during the game with Watford the fans were disappointed because of the defeat to Manchester United.

Kane netted after the break, following Dele Alli's first-half opener, to give on-looking England boss Gareth Southgate plenty to smile about and also strengthen his side's top-four aspirations.

"They got three points which is the most important thing".
