Harry Kane and Dele Alli scored twice each to fire Tottenham to a thumping 4-1 victory over Watford and into the Premier League’s top four.
Spurs were three up at half-time thanks to Kane’s double and Alli’s first, before the latter capitalised on some more dreadful Watford defending to secure an emphatic win at Vicarage Road. Younes Kaboul added a late consolation for the Hornets.
The result means Mauricio Pochettino’s men climb above Manchester City on goal difference and carry valuable momentum into Wednesday’s crunch clash at home to Chelsea.
Antonio Conte’s league leaders, who sit 10 points clear of Tottenham, head to White Hart Lane chasing a Premier League record 14th consecutive victory.
