Tottenham climbed into the standings but did not deal with Watford
Tottenham and Watford failed to defeat and ended equally - 1:1 in a 15-round Premier League round. This happened in front of one of the most famous fans of the Victory Road team - Elton John. The Spurs and their hosts entered the meeting in seventh and eighth place, with one and two wins in the last five matches respectively. Mauricecio Pocetino had put his team in the 4-2-3-1 circuit, while Marko Silva bet on 3-4-3. The two teams started actively and exchanged several situations. The first to reach a dangerous situation came after a long-throwing lead found by Keuron Tripier, and his centering in the small field could not find Harry Kane who missed the ball.
Shortly thereafter, the hosts came in and flicked after the action on the left wing was stopped by the English national Tripir who cleared the corner and in the subsequent run to the right of Loris, Cristiano Cabassele sent the ball into the net after centeringTom Cleverley. The hosts continued their active game and only a few minutes later came to the left of Loris, but the dangerous centering was not a goal.
25th minute Son Hyun-minus equalized for Tottenham after a beautiful parallel pass by Christian Eriksen to the right, leaving the Korean against the empty door. Shortly before, the hosts claimed a penalty after Richard was hit by a body from Ben Davis around the penalty shootout, but Martin Atkinson`s failure signal was not followed.
The second half offered fewer emotions to the fans after both teams showed a desire to play but could not reach more dangerous situations. In the 52nd minute, central defender Davidson Sanchez received a direct red card for elbow strike in the face of Brazilian Ricardolis in front of the two teams` bench. In the 77th minute Erik Lamela appeared on the pitch after a 13-month retreat, replacing Son Hughmin.
At the very end of the match, Watford`s players had serious penalties for a penalty when in the 94th minute in their last attack a yellow player attempted a parallel pass to a team mate in the penalty area but the ball met Eric Dyer`s hand. Martin Atkinson`s signal did not follow, however, as the referee apparently judged that the hand was tight enough for the body, and the shot was just a short distance away.
So the two teams split one point, which put Tottenham in the sixth position at three points in Arsenal, but there is also a less match mentioned by football tips while Watford remains eighth in the standings.
