Hugo Lloris demonstrated why he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world in Tottenham's 2-0 Premier League win over Watford, according to manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris denied Andre Gray and Richarlison, with the Brazilian also shooting over from six yards out.

Harry Kane has been awarded Tottenham Hotspur's second goal in their 2-1 Premier League victory at Stoke City after the England star appealed against the decision to give it to Christian Eriksen.

While a top-four place is the primary objective, Tottenham could even move up to third if they win their game in hand over Liverpool.

"I'm surprised because we are not scoring goals in this moment, we are creating many chances, we are competing, we had good moments in the last games but it's not enough to get points, we need to continue to try to get the next three points". Perhaps we did not play in the way we wanted but got three points. Tottenham with their first chance to score, scored and after that you are playing against a very good team, it was very hard in the second half.

"The team came back from a hard loss".

Kane has three games remaining in Spurs' season with West Brom (A), Newcasle (H) and Leicester (H) to come, while Liverpool travel to Chelsea before hosting Brighton on the final day.

Moussa Sissoko was on course to make it three a minute to added time, but went over the top from a good position. We tried but I think Watford was a very hard opponent.

The goal took him to within four of Golden Boot frontrunner Mohamed Salah and that should have gone to three midway through the second half but only he will know how he did not convert into an empty net from a yard out after Jan Vertonghen's header hit the post.

"It feels like ages since we last played - eight days. In my mind, I'm just trying to get to that 30-goal mark".
