If this goalless draw will be remembered, it will be remembered for the goal-den chances that were spurned.
For Watford a Troy Deeney penalty saved by Spurs custodian Paulo Gazzaniga and for Spurs, a scrambled effort from Erik Lamela that was cleared off the line (see above).
A fair result probably though in truth, Spurs probably deserved nothing from yet another tepid away performance. Muted in attack and defence, Jose Mourinho’s team had little to offer.
Surely, in Harry Kane’s absence, a proven striker is absolutely essential if Spurs are to get back into the top 4. At the moment it’s not looking likely.
Let’s put things into perspective. Mourinho has only overseen one Premier League win in the last 5. Watford on the other hand have won 4 out of the last 5. Simply put, Watford are favourites to get all 3 points. Any away points taken by Spurs at this moment would be an achievement. Not expected much.
COME ON YOU SPURS!!!

If you can’t score from clear cut chances – like with Sonny and Lo Celso – then you don’t deserve anything!
What does Eriksen still start and Lo Celso and Lamela are left on the bench? At this rate, even top six looks an impossibility. Pathetic.
