  • Tottenham vs Watford latest score: LIVE updates from MNF clash at Wembley

Watford's best opportunity to get back into the game came when Troy Deeney nodded down for Richarlison, who could only fire way over on a frustrating night for Javi Gracia's side but an important one for Tottenham in their pursuit of a top-four finish.

The France global made a number of fine saves as Spurs ran out 2-0 winners at Wembley, a result that moves them to within one point of third-placed Liverpool with a game in hand.

Watford had more than enough chances to be at least level at the break, but were denied by a return to form by Hugo Lloris.

"It was a must-win game - so important for us. We must continue and try to get three points".

Spurs went into Monday's game at Wembley just two points ahead of Chelsea, who are on a run of three successive league wins and seeking to keep the pressure on their cross-city rivals in the race for the final spot in Europe's top club competition.

"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".

The Argentine said: Hugo Lloris showed fantastic skill and why he's one of the best 'keepers in the world.

He then produced a disappointing performance in the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United, leading to an official FA Twitter account mocking him with a video that suggested Kane had been in Chris Smalling's "pocket" for the entire game.

The Sky Sports Pundit wants Pochettino after Mourinho leaves.

The former right back makes no secret of his dislike for the Reds, but can't help but enjoy some of the football on offer at Anfield this season as Liverpool make an assault on the Champions League.

Gary Neville reckons big-name players would be "put off" joining Manchester United if the club took the decision to sell Paul Pogba this summer.

"I feel good. I'd like to have played better in the last few games, same of the team, but I feel good, feel sharp and could have scored more".

"People forget that last season we finished second and the season before third - we were so close to winning it".

Trippier impressed once more as Tottenham beat Watford 2-0 on Monday, with the 27-year-old claiming an assist for Harry Kane's goal.
