    A good day's work in the end for Spurs then - follow reaction from White Hart Lane, and the other games today, here. 

  2. FULL-TIME

    Game over!

    Spurs go second. 

  3. Post update

    Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Watford with some late, late pressure but Hugo Lloris comes to make a fine take...

  4. Post update

    Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Almost there. Spurs haven't finished in the top two since 1963 by the way...

  5. Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Spurs just need to hold their nerve to move into second place in the Premier League table. Watford yet to mount a serious threat.

  6. Post update

    Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Spurs win their 15th corner, it's cleared away. If Watford snatch a point you'd have to launch a criminal investigation. 

  7. Post update

    Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Christian Eriksen into the penalty area, low shot/cross across goal, it just needs a touch - nobody there!

    Christian Eriksen
  8. Post update

    Totttenham 1-0 Watford

    Spurs still utterly dominant, but still yet to put this game to bed. 

  9. GREAT SAVE!

    Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Son Heung-min weaves into the area and cracks in a low shot, again that man Heurelho Gomes turns it away.

    The former Spurs keeper has been excellent this afternoon.

  10. Post update

    Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Spurs craft another crossing opportunity on the right this time. Christian Eriksen pulls it back but Kevin Wimmer scuffs his shot wide. 

  11. Post update

    Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Into the final 20 minutes, and Watford remain without a shot on target. Eric Dier tries a 35-yarder at the other end but it deflects wide. 

    Spurs bring on Son Heung-min for Erik Lamela. 

  12. Post update

    Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Erik Lamela flashes a shot wide from 20 yards as Spurs crank up the pressure. 

  13. 'Exactly what Spurs are worth'

    Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Jermaine Jenas

    Ex-Spurs & England midfielder on Final Score

    "Tottenham deserve it, and no-one more so than Trippier. I said Alli would have a impact! He roams, he collected the ball and the pass in across the box was so precise. Exactly what Spurs are worth."

  14. Post update

    Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    A wonderful ball in from Dele Alli to give Kieran Trippier his first goal for Spurs. 

    Tottenham second as it stands...

  15. GOAL - Tottenham 1-0 Watford

    Kieran Trippier

    Dele Alli has just come on and he finds a way through! Alli pops up on the left wing, puts in a wonderful low cross with the outside of his foot, Heurelho Gomes can't cut it out and there's Kieran Trippier for a tap-in!

    Kieran Trippier celebrates
  16. 'Alli should test the Watford back line'

    Tottenham 0-0 Watford

    Jermaine Jenas

    Ex-Spurs & England midfielder on Final Score

    "Tottenham have such strength and depth, and they've brought on Dele Alli. Sometimes you just need a new player on to freshen things up. The run this lad makes should test the Watford back line."

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 0-0 Watford

    It's Dele Alli time - he replaces Nacer Chadli. The crowd is instantly lifted. 

  18. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Watford

    Erik Lamela whips in a free-kick but Heurelho Gomes makes a good claim. Could be a testing half hour ahead for the Hornets.

    Erik Lamela
  19. Post update

    Tottenham 0-0 Watford

    You can hear, almost feel the frustration now from the Tottenham fans. They are playing well, keeping the ball and looking bright - but it's not quite knitting together in the penalty area. 

    Dele Alli time? 

  20. SUBSTITUTION

    Watford have used all of their subs now as Miguel Britos - who took a kick earlier on - is replaced by Seb Prodl.
