Kane strikes again to cheer Spurs and England

The France global made a number of fine saves as Spurs ran out 2-0 winners at Wembley, a result that moves them to within one point of third-placed Liverpool with a game in hand.

The visitors continued to create chances, forcing Lloris to be sharp to stop efforts by Abdoulaye Doucoure and Richarlison, who almost equalized for Watford in the 44th minute. It's hard to win games. "We've got a team full of players that want to win things, a manager that wants to win things, the club wants to win things", he told Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard in an interview on BT Sport.

Fifth-placed Chelsea had whittled down a 10-point deficit to just two but Spurs took that back to five with three games remaining.

"We had a good performance tonight and created many chances but didn't score". "He is chasing [Mohamed Salah] but the most important thing is to score goals for the team". "Assists, playing passes, crosses he is one of the best".

Pogba answered some critics with a sublime performance against Manchester City in the derby as well as a superb display against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-final.

Gary Neville reckons big-name players would be "put off" joining Manchester United if the club took the decision to sell Paul Pogba this summer.

For Watford, the result means they will have to wait at least another week to get the three points they need to be sure of spending another season in the EPL.

Kane scored three minutes after the break, following Dele Alli's first-half opener, to give onlooking England boss Gareth Southgate plenty to smile about and also strengthen his side's top-four aspirations.

The north London outfit will be eager to finish the 2017-18 season as high as possible in the table-third place is well within reach with Liverpool faltering domestically. "In my mind I'm trying to get to that 30 mark", said Kane. I want to win at everything I do, whether it's the Golden Boot or every game.

"It was a game we had to win and we won, so I'm happy about that", the manager said.

Trippier impressed once more as Tottenham beat Watford 2-0 on Monday, with the 27-year-old claiming an assist for Harry Kane's goal.
