Didn't have a lot to do tonight, but was caught in no man's land a bit on the Watford goal.

 

Match Summary

It was shades of the Fulham game tonight as Tottenham Hotspur came from behind late on to snatch a 2-1 victory in the Premier League.

Watford grabbed the lead in the first half, and looked as if they would hold off a tidal wave of Tottenham pressure before the final whistle at Wembley.

However, an assist and goal from Llorente in the final ten minutes grabbed all three points for Spurs.

Up until the 80th minute, it looked as if it would be another frustrating outing for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.  Tottenham had lost their last two home league games, last losing three in a row in September 2008.

However, Spurs never gave up and with other results going their way it proved to be a crucial night having closed the gap on Manchester City in second place to just two points.  Chelsea were humiliated 4-0 on the south coast against Bournemouth which has helped to extend the gap between third and fourth to seven points.

  1. I thought he should have came out to challenge for the high ball instead of relying on his central defenders. IMO, that Watford goal can be prevented because it was crossed into the 6 yards box and if Lloris has acted fast enough, he could have punch clear the ball. At times, I am not convince regarding his performance and this season, he has conceded goals in some games that cost us the points. Lady’s luck will not always be on our side that we can always score in the last ten minutes and win us the game. We count ourselves very lucky this time again. What if we are playing against the so called bigger teams?
