Pochettino: Watford defeat is a ‘wake-up call’

Carabao Cup Draw Tottenham make stadium announcement over Watford tie

An own goal from Abdoulaye Doucoure had given Spurs the lead, but headers from Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart earned the Hornets their fourth successive win of the new campaign.

Watford have moved into third place in the Premier League table after coming from behind to earn a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday's clash at Vicarage Road. A price of 5/1 is available with BetVictor that Watford will top the league without the inclusion of Manchester City, United, Spurs, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.

"After you win the game [against United] I think you need to respect more this competition", Pochettino told the press.

While Deeney was not as scathing of Spurs as he was of their arch-rivals last season, he did take a swipe at their struggles to handle Watford's powerful game, saying Pochettino's side "didn't like it up 'em".

"It's a good moment for us, we have to enjoy, knowing that it is only the first four games".

'We conceded two goals that if you want to be a contender you can not concede. "Sometimes people talk about the perception but the reality was on the pitch and the reality is if you want to be a contender, today you need to win".

That is very painful but I am not upset. Despite only having three points from their opening three games Roy's side have been tipped by many for a top half finish this season and I can certainly still see that happening.

Despite not getting the win, Moura showed once more that his pace is going to be a trouble for defenders.

On the other hand Levy and Lewis out concluded that Spurs have been poor in handling crosses put into the box and have conceded goals due to poor marking.

"I was very, very disappointed and my message is you need to go there like a lion and try to score in every single action". If you want to win you need to show that character, you need to defend well. We are now being regularly updated on progress and as soon as we have confidence in our project managers' and contractors' ability to deliver against the revised schedule of works, we shall be able to issue dates for test events and the official opening game.
