Frustrated Tottenham Hotspur want to win trophies - Dele Alli

Harry Kane will be "in very good condition" for the 2018 FIFA World Cup this summer, according to Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs haven't made sure of a top 4 place yet - but they've taken a giant stride.

Yes, Watford has some good chances to score, but their quality in front of Hugo Lloris was pretty poor. It's hard to win games.

But Tottenham extended that gap to five points with just three games to play thanks to an ultimately routine win against a Watford side still not quite safe from relegation.

The win at Wembley put fourth-placed Spurs five points clear of Chelsea in the race for Champions League places and although Kane was again not at his best, the striker was in the right place at the right time to wrap up three vital points for Spurs. It is frustrating, we could do better and when you don't play well you want to play against straight away.

'The most important thing is qualifying for the Champions League.

Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri was sent off for entering the pitch after Higuain's goal. Minutes later Vecino was shown red for a foul on Mario Mandzukic.

"After the disappointment of the FA Cup semi-final it was hard, we started a little sloppy and it's never easy to play against a team with good players and a team that plays with freedom". But he went on to add that whenever the manager moves on, he would like to see Pochettino take over as the Manchester United boss.

For Watford, the end of the season can not come quickly enough as they are now winless in seven and still not mathematically safe, sitting six points clear of the drop zone.

"He needs to improve his performance still, but I'm happy - 150 games, 105 goals, what more can we say? I feel good and sharp, I could have a got a couple more [against Watford] but I'm good and want to finish strong". "I feel proud of the process".

Speaking on Sky Sport, Neville said, 'When I watch Liverpool he is absolutely the catalyst for me in terms of everything that they do.
