Tottenham came from a goal down to win the game with a late header, for a second Premier League game in a row at Wembley tonight.
For most the game, it looked like it was going to be a frustrating night as Watford took the lead through a scrappy goal in the first half and defended with two banks of four behind the ball.
Spurs who went into the interval a goal down, upped the tempo in the second half as Watford were camped inside their own third. Fernando Llorente who kept his place in the side in Kane’s and Alli’s absence missed a couple of guilt edge chances to level the game.
With ten minutes left to play, the ball broke inside the box to Son Heung-Min who was playing his first game after returning from the Asia Cup, and South Korean thrashed it home with his left foot.
It looked at that point as if Spurs were headed for their first draw in the Premier League this season but Llorente came up with a brilliant far post header from a looping Danny Rose cross to give Spurs all three points and redeem himself after his earlier misses.
Check out how Spurs fans reacted to the dramatic winner:

What a fucking result. There's many legitimate concerns for some fans, but you can't deny the spirit and belief that Pochettino has instilled in these players.

No signings, no home stadium & 37 injuries.
Same number of wins as Man City, Premier League holders.
