Tottenham Edge Watford To Keep Champions League Hopes Alive

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

"That's 150 Premier League games and 105 goals", the Tottenham manager said.

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

Spurs are now on course to finish third if they win their three remaining games this season, with the club one point behind Liverpool with a game in hand, and should they do so they will finish behind Manchester City and likely United, with Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal among those behind. The race could be over at the weekend, with two matches still to play. Our form has not been the best and when that happens you want to play.

Neville has remained downbeat about the Red Devils' performances this season despite on an impending second place finish and an FA Cup final to come.

The Frenchman stood firm and kept his 14 clean sheet of the season in all competitions, making notable interventions against Andre Gray, Richarlison and Abdoulaye Doucare as Watford tried to make a game of it.

An inopportune slip prevented Kane turning home Son Heung-min's initial cross, but the England worldwide quickly picked himself up to slot home when Kieran Trippier flashed the loose ball back across goal for his 38th goal of the season.

Watford remain on 38 points, likely enough for another season in the top flight - but too close for comfort.

DF Jan Vertonghen, 8 - Another fine display with and without the ball.

Last season Kane was three goals behind Romelu Lukaku and ended up finishing with four goals ahead.

DF Ben Davies, 6 - Solid defensively but his work-load over the course of the season understandably seems to have affected his offensive impact. "The numbers talk for him", added the Argentinian about his frontman, who set himself the target of going one better than last term and reaching the 30-goal target by the end of the campaign.

MF Mousa Dembele, 6 - Looked off the pace in the first half, contributing to the team's lack of intensity and urgency, while Spurs' defence also looked vulnerable at times, lacking a midfield shield.

But just after the quarter of an hour mark, Spurs made the breakthrough.

The England striker had scored just twice in his last eight matches before last night - and one of those was the controversial goal against Stoke when he claimed Christian Eriksen's free-kick had glanced his shoulder en route to the back of the net - and he started against the Hornets looking a man short on self-belief.
