Mauricio Pochettino says his Tottenham side "feel free" in their position as title outsiders after trimming Chelsea's advantage at the Premier League summit. "We are the closest team in the league to Chelsea - that is the reality".
"But it's good news that he's ready", Tottenham Manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Friday.
Dele Alli and Eric Dier also scored at a sun-kissed White Hart Lane for Spurs, who moved to within four points of Chelsea with seven games remaining.
Watford now sit in 10th place and arrive at White Hart Lane with back to back wins.
They battled for 30 minutes, leaving Spurs chasing shadows at times, and can point to three brilliant goals as their undoing.
Tottenham's Dele Alli celebrates after scoring a goal during the English Premier League soccer match between Tottenham Hotspur and Watford at White Hart Lane in London, Saturday April 8, 2017.
"He's always desperate to play, he's always pushing you to try to let him train, play and score goals".
It was hardly Tottenham's most convincing win of the season, but it allowed them to move five points clear of third-place Liverpool with a game in hand, and also keeps the pressure on Antonio Conte's Chelsea.

With Spurs fast cementing their status as one of the Premier League's dominant sides, Pochettino is now focused on propagating a "winning mentality" across the entirety of the club.
It is partly because of his contributions that Harry Kane has not been especially missed.
Son was involved once more in the 39th minute when his deflected cross fell kindly for Dier to venomously rifle home from the edge of the area, and the South Korea winger got in on the act to effectively end the contest before half-time.
Alli insists he is still a midfielder but he has now scored in six of the past seven league games (and he really should have scored in the win at Burnley last weekend).
Son added his second in the 54th minute when he met another Trippier cross at the far post and volleyed home.
Son missed the chance to grab a first Premier League hat trick, and admitted he was frustrated after failing to convert a one-on-one with Heurelho Gomes before hitting the crossbar late on.
"The team deserve full credit because the energy and the way they played was fantastic", Pochettino, whose side trailed 1-0 in the 88th minute at Swansea in midweek before scoring three late goals, told Sky Sports.
Deeney eventually came off the bench with 20 minutes left to play, but Spurs continued to dominate in the final stages - with Watford landing just two shots on target - and easily saw out the thumping win.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
