Tottenham overcome nervy start to pad top-four lead over chasing Chelsea

Tottenham Hotspur's English striker Harry Kane celebrates scoring the team's second goal during the English Premier League football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Watford at Wembley

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has singled out goalkeeper Hugo Lloris for praise following his side's 2-0 win over Watford in the Premier League.

He admitted both the players and fans were still hurting after being knocked out of the FA Cup last week by Manchester United but his team showed professionalism.

Chelsea looked like it would not be qualifying for the Champions League after losing to Tottenham at home on April 1, but has won its last three games to stay in contention in fifth place. Yes, they should win the league with the money they've spent at those clubs. "I am happy, three points puts us in a good position", Sky Sports News.

He is four behind Mohamed Salah in the race for the Premier League's Golden Boot, but if he finishes the 2017-18 campaign like he did last season, he could yet claim the award for the third term running.

Who will win the champions league?

Spurs' final three games of the season are against West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle United and Leicester City.

MF Eric Dier, 6 - Played some nice diagonal passes out to Trippier but was a little careless over shorter distances in the first half, with one intercepted pass resulting in a good chance or Gray.

"I think it's hard to keep playing at a high level and showing great performances during 10 months", replied Pochettino, when asked if the players were exhausted or had just suffered a hangover after the defeat to Jose Mourinho's side over a week ago. Kane tried to lighten the mood, heading Mousa Dembele's centre the wrong side of an upright, it what was otherwise a scruffy opening to the contest. The Belgian was more of a force after the break but limped off just after the hour-mark. Meanwhile, Eriksen's audacious effort from distance had Karnezis scrambling across his goal, but drifted wide of the target.

Kane did find the back of the net again, though he had strayed offside.

But within three minutes of the restart, the door appeared to be closed on any potential Watford comeback.

While a Mourinho departure could still be one or two seasons away, you've got to wonder what Pochettino would be able to achieve at Old Trafford with their inexhaustible resources.

MF Moussa Sissoko, NR - Fired wastefully over inside the box.

But Spurs restored the advantage to five points following the win against their fellow Londoners.
