Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Tottenham v Watford


Tottenham cut the gap on Premier League leaders Chelsea to four points, for a few hours at least, with another stunning display at fortress White Hart Lane.

Spurs remain reliant on Chelsea dropping further points, which Pochettino acknowledged, but the manager was again encouraged that they are giving the title favourites so small a margin for error.

― Reuters picLONDON, April 8 ― Mauricio Pochettino saluted "fantastic" Tottenham Hotspur's 4-0 rout of Watford as his title chasers closed the gap on Premier League leaders Chelsea.

"The message for us is to keep pushing, winning games".

Watford 11 vs Spurs: Gomes; Mariappa, Cathcart, Holebas; Janmaat, Cleverley, Doucouré, Amrabat; Niang, Okaka, Success.

They battled for 30 minutes, leaving Spurs chasing shadows at times, and can point to three brilliant goals as their undoing.

England striker Harry Kane should return to Tottenham's squad for Saturday's Premier League clash with Watford after missing three matches with ankle trouble. "He is here because we believe in him and if Michael Vorm is not ready he is a keeper who can cope".

"If you don't show a strong mentality in 24, 25 players then you will not be able to rotate and give opportunities to others and they don't feel like an important part of the project, then it is hard to win titles". 4-0, min. 54, Son Heung-min.

Storm Debris Collection Continues In Areas Impacted By Recent Severe Weather
The primary threat is wind gusts in excess of 60 miles per hour , according to the National Weather Service. Tornado Warnings began popping up around 3 p.m.in Coffee County and continued east as the storm passed.

Fans of other clubs have been jumping all over Spurs' handshake celebrations as a way to deflect from their scintillating performances on the pitch.

It is partly because of his contributions that Harry Kane has not been especially missed.

Dier then slammed home a low finish from the edge of the area in the 39th after Son's cross from the left wing was deflected out.

Tottenham now sit seven points behind London rivals Chelsea and they can't afford to drop any further behind to have any chance of winning the league.

One of those men was Alli, and the midfielder continued his scoring steak with his fifth goal in six league games on 33 minutes - beating ex-Spurs goalkeeper Heurelho Homes with a wonderful curling shot from 25 yards which sailed into the top corner.

And it should have been 5-0 on 81 minutes when Kane unselfishly teed up Son just inside the box, but his hopes of a hat-trick were dashed as his sidefooted effort went wide of the post.

They've also won each of their last seven against middle-third teams as part of a run of 12 undefeated against such opposition, and they've scored 23 goals in those seven most recent wins, so they'll be brimming with confidence for this one.

Watford have not conceded in the last two games - their first consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League since October 2016.
