Tottenham beats Watford 2-0, boost hopes of EPL top-4 finish

Kane has come in for criticism for appealing to the Premier League for a goal at Stoke

Kane has come in for criticism for appealing to the Premier League for a goal at Stoke

Tottenham moved closer to qualifying for next season's Champions League with a scrappy victory over Watford at Wembley Stadium.

With four games remaining, Tottenham are five points ahead of Chelsea for the final top four spot.

Meanwhile, the visitors are still not guaranteed safety as their winless run extended to seven matches.

Kane is chasing Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah, who has 29 goals this term, in the race to finish as the league's top scorer. He miskicked an attempted shot off Son Heung-min's pass, but picked himself up to convert another searching centre from Trippier moments later. Hornets fans have endured a largely stop-start season and once again it's anyone's guess as to which side will show up at Wembley.

Watford played Crystal Palace to a scoreless draw in their last game. Spurs still looked much the better side that day and they were enduring a tough time of things at the end of November - winless in four games.

Watford should have pulled a goal back after 70 minutes when Troy Deeney's knockdown found Richarlison, but he blazed over the crossbar from point-blank range. In injury-time, Lloris secured another clean sheet for him with a fine save to deny Andre Carillo's powerful strike.

We are backing a comfortable Spurs win as our prediction in the game. The Hornets will need to play better defensively if they are going to win or even pick up a point on Monday.

"Hopefully I can finish strongly like I did previous year and go into a big summer".

Last weekend, Spurs lost 1-2 to Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Tottenham Hotspur returns to Premier League action on Saturday, May 5 when they travel to the Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion (3pm).

Pochettino has previously been linked with future moves to Manchester United, Real Madrid and PSG, with the latter being one of his former club's during his playing career.

Harry Kane is the obvious favourite to score in the game, and he is available at his best odds of 4/9 at Skybet.

"In the whole season, in 10 months of competition, it is hard to keep playing good football".

"I'm sure we can get more points and more goals in the next game".

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