Tottenham's Harry Kane ready for World Cup, says Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham's Harry Kane ready for World Cup, says Mauricio Pochettino

"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".

Harry Kane did his talking on the pitch as Tottenham reasserted themselves in the race for the Champions League with a 2-0 win over Watford.

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.

"The objective and challenge is to finish in the top four". "It wasn't a great period for him the past few weeks, he is human like everyone else, and was a little bit affected", said Pochettino.

At the other end of the pitch, Watford keeper Orestis Karnezis bobbled what should have been an easy stop and left the ball for Tottenham's Christian Eriksen, who set up Dele Alli for the goal to put the hosts up 1-0 in the 16th minute.

Tottenham's much-needed victory over Watford sees them move just a single point behind Liverpool, in third, with a game in hand.

Richarlison raced clear for Watford only to be thwarted by Lloris, who got down low to his left to preserve parity before racing way off his line to dispossess Doucoure and quell another unsafe attack from the visitors.

The French number one had cost his side with a series of errors in recent weeks, but Lloris stood up well to save from Andre Grey, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Jose Holebas.

Salah has scored 31 goals in an astonishing first campaign at Liverpool, with Harry Kane notching 27 times with three games remaining, one more than his rival.

"Hugo Lloris was fantastic and showed why he is one of the best in the world".

Kane doubled Spurs' lead early in the second half from Kieran Trippier's pull-back and Jan Vertonghen later headed against the post.

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. You felt during the game with Watford the fans were disappointed because of the defeat to Manchester United.
