Tottenham Hotspur made it three straight victories on the weekend, all with the same score-line, as they beat newly-promoted Watford FC 1-0.

A freekick from Heung-Min Son late in the first half was enough to separate the two sides. Admittedly, the effort looked more like a cross than a shot, Daniel Bachmann in the Hornets net should have kept it out.

Spurs created opportunities, with both Steven Bergwijn and Eric Dier coming close. Harry Kane was also unlucky not to get on the scoresheet in the latter stages of the game.

As the score suggested, it was a hard-fought game for the lilywhites, with Watford creating chances of their own, Juraj Kucka twice failed to capitalise on opportunities, while Emanuel Dennis continued to look lively.

Securing the services of Harry Kane for at least one more season would have been the priority heading into this season. The youth approach in their deals suggests, if they do receive some more funds from a Kane transfer next season, they’ll be better placed to build a strong squad.

In hindsight, certain players maybe should have been secured, such as the linked players Houssem Aouar and Adama Traore, while the likes of Serge Aurier should have been shipped out.

The deadline day signing of Emerson Royal will be a welcome one, as right-back has been a cause for concern.

The role of Japhet Tanganga who was impressed there so far this season now comes into question, while perhaps an extra centre-back in addition to Cristian Romero should have been secured.
