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.
