Watford down Spurs to maintain 100 per cent record

Watford down Spurs to maintain 100 per cent record

Watford register their fourth successive win of the new Premier League campaign with a 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday's clash at Vicarage Road.

Spurs went ahead thanks to Abdoulaye Doucoure's own goal but Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart turned the game around and saw the Hornets make it four wins from four this term.

Pochettino was left exasperated with his side's defending and is demanding a significant improvement when they return from the two-week worldwide break.

Romelu Lukaku got the two goals for the Red Devils, but there was a sour point as substitute Marcus Rashford was sent off in the 71st minute for pushing his forehead into Phil Bardsley's head.

"And in March and April and the beginning of May if we are there, then OK, now we are contenders. But it is so hard to understand because I thought we controlled the game in the first forty-five minutes".

George Weah hails Nigerian football as a 'model'
Over two legs, Weah, then captain of the Lone Stars came close, failed to help his team secure a World Cup ticket. Weah, a former professional footballer, featured for 79 minutes in the game played in the capital, Monrovia.

A statement read: "We can confirm that our upcoming Premier League home fixture against Manchester City is now scheduled to take place on Monday 29 October, kick off 8pm at Wembley Stadium".

"You need to show respect because to compete to win it is not easy, the Premier League is so, so tough". You need to show you want to win. If you want to be a contender - I am the first person guilty of everything - it is so hard to understand, because I thought we controlled the game in the first 45 minutes. That is very painful, but I am not upset. "It is clear and easy to explain". "It is so painful because the first half looked like a friendly game". Today it is good to compare those.

The best chance came in the 12th minute with Dele Alli latching onto a long pass from Toby Alderweireld, but the England international's looping header went just over Ben Foster's crossbar.

Still, you could argue that the biggest victory of the weekend came off the pitch for Spurs, with Son Heung-min gaining exemption from military service with South Korea after his nation were able to overcome Japan and win the Asian Games title, with Son barely being able to hide his joy.

A rejuvenated Deeney was a talismanic figure up front for the hosts and boss Javi Gracia was quick to pour praise on the 30-year-old. He has a special personality.
