Kane scores, Tottenham beats and is 5 points ahead of Chelsea
Dele Ali’s and Harry Kane’s goals scored Tottenham’s important victory. The Spurs beat Watford with a 2-0 win and secured the 4th place in the Premier League after taking only one point from their previous two games (1: 3 with Manchester City and 1: 1 with Brighton). Mauriceio Pocetino’s team came close to just one point from the third Liverpool, and there was an advance of 5 ahead of Chelsea, who is making desperate attempts to reach the top 4 and qualify for the Champions League.
The weak form of Tottenham in recent weeks included a drop from Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals. Today, Londoners also did not impress, and Watford missed several good opportunities to make the end of the game unpredictable.
The first half will be remembered with the two goalkeepers. Hugo Loris saved dangerous riffs Richard and Abdulai Doukure, while Orestius Karnesis made a gross mistake and gave Delle Ali a goal that Tottenham led.
The attack fell in the 16th minute. Keuron Tripier centered, and Karnesys childin missed the ball. There followed a short melee, where Christian Eriksen broke the ball to Ali and the English national was delighted with fans of Spurs.
Andre Gray could not equalize in the 26th minute, and Loris showed his class by the break, reflecting the blows of Doukure and Ricardlison, who was in a good position.
At the beginning of the second part Harry Kane slipped and failed to detect Son Hyun-Ming’s centering, but reacted quickly to the situation and deflected the ball after a good filing of Tripir from the other flank. In the 68th minute, Jan Vertongen hit the beam, and shortly after, Ricardlison did not show coolness and shot over the door.
In the last quarter-hour, Gerard Deulofeuf and Kane’s hits were canceled, and in both cases there was an ambush. Watford had a chance to score at least a goal, but Loris did not allow the reserve Andre Carrieo to overcome it.
The Squadles are in 13th place with 38 points and have no win in 7 consecutive games. Besides, the team of Havi Gracia for more than 10 hours has no goal on a foreign field.
