Mauricio Pochettino backs Harry Kane to be fully ready…

After the win against Watford Spurs retain a five-point gap to Chelsea and will actually finish ahead of Liverpool in third if they win all their remaining games.

"It was a game we had to win and we won, so I'm happy about that", said Tottenham manager Pochettino. "It was important to get the three points as it allows us to be in a good position", said Pochettino. Moving out of the top four comes with a hell of a tax these days, so this was an important game for Mauricio Pochettino's side, whose primary objectives for this season may have ended in failure but who still have significant incentive not to enter a tail-spin in the campaign's final weeks.

Kieran Trippier's cross looked comfortable for Osteris Karnezis but at the last moment Christian Kabasele darted in front of the goalkeeper, who spilled the ball at the feet of Christian Eriksen.

Asked if Kane could play himself back to 100 per cent before the tournament, Pochettino replied: Yes of course.

GK Hugo Lloris, 9 - Made three crucial contributions in the first half, denying Andre Gray and Richarlison one-on-one and then rushing out of his box to tackle Abdoulaye Doucoure.

'We created a lot of chances, we are playing in the right way so we are going to score next Saturday, I feel it, we worked very hard and we are going to get a result'.

One person that Pochettino has impressed though is former Manchester United defender Gary Neville, who believes that under his guidance Spurs have overachieved in terms of what they've spent compared to their Premier League rivals.

Goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane gave Spurs the win, although the performance was far from impressive.

I think we conceded a few chances, but there was Hugo Lloris in goal and he showed fantastic skill and why he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

Lloris has come under intense pressure after mistakes leading to goals in three consecutive matches against Chelsea, Stoke and Manchester City, and he was left out of the team for the FA Cup semifinal defeat to Manchester United.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has warned his Liverpool counterpart Mohamed Salah that the race is on for the Golden Boot.

In the last three Premier League games of 2016-17, Kane netted eight goals.

The Sky Sports pundit remarked during the programme: "Pep Guardiola, the way I should judge him, should he win the league?"
