Watford hit back to stun Spurs and continue flawless start


HOTSPUR surrendered flawless Premier League start as Watford produced a stirring second-half fightback to take all three points at Vicarage Road.

Spurs failed to hold on to the lead handed to them by Abdoulaye Doucoure's 53rd-minute own-goal at Vicarage Road, as Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart scored via set-pieces to maintain the Hornets' ideal start to the season.

'To play football, to compete, it looks an easy game because we dominate the ball, we didn't concede because Watford were poor in the first 45 minutes. Twitter user and Spurs fan Tottenham Paul though feels the manager got it "all wrong" and needs to take more responsibility, with Ethan questioning the manager's substitution policy. Worse, all five of the other big six teams won meaning our margin for error over Manchester United and Arsenal is now only 3 points, Manchester City overtook Spurs and Chelsea and Liverpool are as far away as Arsenal is close.

It's disappointing, especially conceding from two set-pieces.

"I think it is good to pay today, to feel the pain, I am sure it is going to help us in the future to be better".

"It's hard for me to understand after four years of us being contenders". If you want to be a contender - I am the first person guilty of everything - it is so hard to understand, because I thought we controlled the game in the first 45 minutes. You need to show respect because to compete to win it is not easy.

"And in March and April and the beginning of May if we are there, then OK, now we are contenders". I am more than happy to keep all the players and I am more than happy if they leave, and we play with the under-23s. If you want to win you need to show that character, you need to defend well.

"I think we have played better, but playing against Tottenham you have to do many things different".

Three Tottenham players that need to improve after the internationals. Because we have plenty of players in the academy, no problem. Some people talk about perceptions but the reality was on the pitch. "Of course, myself first, I am responsible - the guilty one when the team loses".
