3 Key Things We Understood From Tottenham’s Hard-fought Victory Against Watford

Published

on

Tottenham continued their pursuit for a good finish to the Premier League with a brilliant 1-0 win over Watford. While the score line isn’t that great, Tottenham were the more dominant side and got the winner thanks to Kieran Trippier in the 64th minute.

The win pushed Tottenham up to second in the table and could well have a huge say in the title race. The team are playing some incredible football and with just 13 games left in the season, they could actually win the league title if Leicester do slip up.

Watford’s strike pairing of Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney couldn’t break the deadlock but Heurelho Gomes, the ex-Spurs goalkeeper was at his best to keep the score line down. We provide the three things that caught our eye from the win.

Six on the spin for Spurs

Tottenham are on fire at the moment and have won six games in a row. This certainly has raised hopes of getting a lot more in return this season than just a top four finish. Spurs are six points behind Leicester but there are 13 games to go in the season.

Tottenham haven’t won the Premier League but this season has been topsy-turvy and with Leicester leading the table, nothing should surprise us, come the end of the season.

Gomes was on fire

Tottenham shouldn’t have scored more goals and made the game safe but Heurelho Gomes was on fire and did his best to keep his former employers out. The Brazilian didn’t have the greatest time when playing for Spurs during his first years in the Premier League.

He has looked a lot safer at Watford and while he couldn’t keep Spurs out this time, he has had a great season for the Hornets and has shown that he is a good goalkeeper and certainly worthy of playing in the league.

Spurs should be wary of Europe

Later in the month, Tottenham have to face Fiorentina after a game against Manchester City. Pochettino has to gauge which is more important for Tottenham, the Europa League or the League. Of course getting into the Champions League has to be the number one priority but winning a trophy should be just as important.

This is an incredible opportunity for Spurs and Pochettino and if they can pull this off, without getting distracted with their European travels, the Champions League won’t be a dream, it will be a reality.
