Jose Holebas: Watford's character key to downing Tottenham Hotspur

  • Tottenham and Watford

The Premier League will return following the global break on September 15.

A weird sequence in the 54th minute led to Tottenham taking the lead, with Abdoulaye Doucoure first heading clear before Lucas Moura turned and fired off of his opponent, who chested it into the net. Two minutes later, Mauro Manotas pulled a goal back for the visitors, but Reto Ziegler converted from the penalty spot just five minutes after that to restore the three-goal advantage.

Tottenham's home Premier League match with Manchester City has been put back one day so it can be played at Wembley.

Tottenham's start has still been a strong one with nine points out of 12, but they will go into the worldwide break furious that they threw this one away.

It is the first time since 1988 that the Hornets have won their first four matches - and the victory delighted the pop star and lifelong Watford supporter. 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".


"The second half we scored and then they showed more strength (and were) more aggressive in the situation".

'I think now for us it's better to think of the next match. You need to show you want to win.

"With Watford, I always worry they will have that dip and look like a team cascading towards relegation - but I like the manager. It's about being strong and showing that character and mentality to say, 'It's impossible that the opponent is going to score'".

Chairman Daniel Levy said: "We are all focused on ensuring contractors deliver our new stadium in the shortest possible period of time and opening our stadium at the earliest opportunity".

Spurs failed to sign a single player in the summer transfer window and fans will be hoping the current crop are good enough to get back on track by beating Liverpool. "We showed against Newcastle and we showed against Fulham and at Old Trafford, but today, it's not that we didn't win because of the players on the bench or the squad", he said. "For us we are a little bit in the shadow. Of course, myself first, I am responsible - the guilty one when the team loses".
