Kabasele urges Watford to stay grounded after fast start

Kabasele urges Watford to stay grounded after fast start

Tottenham led 1-0 after Abdoulaye Doucoure's 53rd-minute own goal but conceded twice from set pieces, with Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart heading in and ending their ideal start to the season.

Pochettino admitted defeat was hard to take and having seen his side challenge at the head of the table in recent seasons, he hinted his side might have underestimated Watford. "It is so painful because the first half looked like a friendly game".

"The reality is if you want to be a contender, then today we should win and win easy because everything was ready to win the game", Pochettino said.

"We had a great start and it felt like it was undone by two sloppy goals".

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". This is good to compare.

"The reality is if you want to be a contender".

"For us, at 1-0 down against Tottenham - a big club with good players - to come back in the game is really good, I have to say".

"I am very disappointed".

"We need to get back on track and do that against Liverpool".

"The reality is we need to analyse who is in the pitch". You need to show respect because to compete to win it is not easy.

Watford boss Javi Gracia was in a much better mood after his side beat Spurs in the Premier League for the first time in 11 attempts.

Watford join Liverpool and Chelsea with four wins from four, whilst Tottenham drop down to fifth after the loss.

So, how did Tottenham and all the Spur's supporters go from top of the world, thinking we want Barcelona, to going into the break like Deadpool on top of 1200 gallons of fuel. "But we know it's only the beginning". I thought for sure the Tottenham Hotspur had their heads right and were ready to go into the break, at worst tied for first place with a show down with Liverpool immediately after, an all too early and all too soon worldwide break.

"You have to be very demanding".

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.
