Such is the media obsession with the ‘big six’ that the following four reports barely contain a mention of us.
Watford were a little more than 10 minutes away from their first league double over Tottenham.
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).
Watford substitute Isaac Success missed a good chance to secure all three points against the run of play, but Tottenham turned the game on its head in the final 10 minutes.
As Javi Gracia said, his side “missed a very good chance to get points against a very good team” and while the visitors were second best in terms of possession and territory, they arguably deserved a draw given the togetherness they showed throughout. Instead they remain ninth having lost for the first time in 2019.
