Spurs 4 Watford 0

Tottenham Hotspur demolished a lacklustre Watford 4-0 with a polished display of attacking football in Saturday's Premier League clash at White Hart Lane.

While Watford have now lost their seventh straight league games at White Hart Lane with their last victory away to Spurs coming in 1985 in a 5-1 win.

Solidity at the back has underpinned the side's success throughout Pochettino's tenure, though, and Tottenham once again demonstrated how hard they are to play against in this impressive thrashing of Watford.

With seven games to go it's a tall order to haul in Chelsea, but they have Kane and Lloris back and seem capable of finishing the campaign with a flourish.

A brace from Heung-Min Son and a goal each from Dele Alli and Eric Dier sealed the impressive win for Spurs.

It means that 22-year-old Lopez, a Spain under-21 global on loan from Espanyol, could feature against Watford as Spurs bid to be crowned champions of England for the first time since 1961.

But a flurry of missed chances down the other end from Vincent Janssen rallied Spurs into life, and they were soon ahead after thanks to main man Alli, who scored an abosulte peach to give hosts the lead.

Spurs have won all three games in Kane's absence, but boss Pochettino admitted the 19-goal Premier League striker can still transform his side - whether he starts against Watford or not.

"Watford began with great energy, substantial motivation to play against us, and also to be patient was clearly one of the keys".

Spurs, on a club record 11 home wins in a row, may not have enough time to overhaul Chelsea but if they had four or five more matches extra, they would probably be favourites, so relentless is their momentum.

Janssen nearly had his first Premier League goal from open play when he cleverly spun Craig Cathcart in the ninth minute, forcing Heurelho Gomes to save with his legs.

Yet, Dele Alli would make it 1-0 in the 33rd minute when he cut inside from the left on the edge of the area and fired an effort past a helpless Gomes into the far corner.

Son added to his first with a fine finish early in the second half to lead his side to a terrific 4-0 victory.

Son needed less than 10 second-half minutes to double his tally for the afternoon, sweeping home another Trippier cross at the back post.

Pochettino said: "He was involved with the team this week and we will see tomorrow if he can start". The 23-year-old unselfishly passed up a one-on-one with Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes to try and set up Son for a hat-trick, before he was denied by the cross bar in injury time after a wonderful free-kick.
