Match Reports

Late goals from Heung-Min Son and Fernando Llorente rescued a tough week for Tottenham with a 2-1 comeback win over Watford.

Watford took advantage of a Spurs side looking jaded after exiting both domestic cup competitions in the space of four days when Craig Cathcart bundled home from a corner (37).

But the introduction of Lucas Moura at half-time proved the catalyst for a much-improved home performance and Llorente missed an open goal from four yards amid increasing pressure from the hosts.

But he redeemed himself by providing a smart assist for Son to smash home 10 minutes from time before arcing a header into the far corner from Rose’s cross (87) for a dramatic winner, which moves Tottenham to within two points of second-placed Manchester City.
