Tottenham confirmed line-up vs Watford: Pochettino makes three changes, Kane on bench

Mauricio Pochettino says his Tottenham side "feel free" in their place as title outsiders after cutting Chelsea's edge in the Premier League peak.

The pair had both made it onto the scoresheet during the FA Cup thrashing of League One Millwall in which Kane was sidelined, with the South Korea worldwide bagging a hat-trick and summer signing Janssen netting his first goal from open play for Spurs.

"But football is going in a completely different direction to 10, 15 years ago".

Spurs are the favourites to get the three points but its always hard to predict games in the Premier League and that's where Odinbet comes in....

Meanwhile Tottenham have reeled off five successive victories, including an incredible escape act at Swansea on Wednesday when they scored three times in the final minutes to clinch a 3-1 success.

The former MK Dons star has played 46 games so far this season, showing the sort of consistency of fitness that players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo demonstrate - he's also earned 17 England caps in total, at just 20 years of age.

"He was so lively today", Sky Sports pundit Niall Quinn said of Son after watching his starring performance against Watford.

That was only the fourth time the France worldwide has sat out a league game this season, with Spurs winning two and drawing the other half. But taking everything into consideration we are happy, and we have to look forward. And now [we try] to be focused and try to be ready next week against Bournemouth here again, and we'll see what happens. That is most important.

Watford appeared simply helpless as they were cut open for Son to add a sumptuous fourth, their ambitions of stringing together three consecutive top-flight wins for the first time this season having long since evaporated.

Since that rush of blood, Alli has been a model of calm in Tottenham's impressive chase of Chelsea, scoring six goals and helping create several others in seven appearances.

"We are in a position that we need to do our job, winning games and put pressure (on them)".

Kieran Trippier stunned a volley across the face of goal and, although the Netherlands global was partially unsighted by Watford defender Adrian Mariappa, Janssen inexplicably managed to hit the crossbar after the ball spun up off his thigh two yards from goal.

He also set up Son for what should have been a hat-trick but he shot agonisingly wide hitting the crossbar with a first-time shot from Trippier's pass.
