Tottenham Close In On UCL Qualification With Premier League Win Over Watford

Tottenham Hotspur are three points closer to securing a spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League (UCL) following their 2-0 London Derby home victory over Watford in their Premier League Matchday 35 clash on Monday night.

Dele Alli capitalised on an error from Watford goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis to give the home side the lead before star striker Harry Kane wrapped up the points for Tottenham for his 27th league goal of the season.

The win takes fourth-placed Tottenham (71 points) to within one point of Liverpool (72 points) who occupy third spot on the table and have played one game more than Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

Tottenham also maintain their five-point lead over Chelsea (5th place with 66 points) as the race for the top four reaches a crucial stage.
