LIVE
94'
FT: Watford 0-0 Tottenham!! All over at Vicarage Road and it ends goalless. Spurs were the better side in the first half, Watford in the second. Both teams had lots of chances, but not many of target. Deeney saw a poor penalty saved in the 70th minute while Moura had a clear chance for Spurs in the first half and Lamela nearly won it for Mourinho's men in stoppage time. A draw's fair, I would say. That's all from me, thanks for your company and see you again soon!
94'
Spurs send it forward looking for a winner in injury time, they can't and it's over!
93'
0-0, but very exciting!
91'
Off the line by Watford!!! Unbelievable! A cross by Aurier is bundled towards goal by Lamela and Pussetto stops it going in just in the nick of time! 98% of the ball was in! GLT confirmed it wasn't a goal.
90'
Four extra minutes.
90'
Lots of chances, but many off target.
90'
Attempts: 15-14, but on target: 2-4.
89'
Watford sub: Pussetto on for Sarr.
86'
Lamela hits one wide of the goal!
84'
Spurs attack, but Son is caught offside.
82'
Both teams attacking in the last few minutes, but nothing really happening. Gedson has had a touch of the ball and his cross has been cleared easily.
79'
Spurs sub: G Fernandes on for Lo Celso.
79'
Watford sub: Chalobah off, Pereyra on.
78'
Sarr hits it over the crossbar! They need to hit the target with a few more of these.
76'
Watford have been the better team and missed their golden opportunity. Will they regret that later?
74'
Dele Alli was furious at being subbed, by the way. Might be angry with the situation.
73'
Applause after 72 minutes around the ground as Graham Taylor died in 2017 at that age.
73'
Spurs sub: Eriksen on for Alli.
70'
Deeney to take! And Gazzaniga saves it!! It's a poor penalty and Gazzaniga dives to his right to stop it. That wasn't a great penalty. As bad as the Porto ones yesterday. Good height for the GK and not in the corner.
70'
Vertonghen is carded for the offence.
69'
Penalty to Watford for handball by Vertonghen!! It's a clear handball and the move comes about because Lo Celso slips in the box.
66'
Still 0-0 here despite the chances we've had. Both teams struggling to finish off the moves.
64'
Lamela wants a penalty for handball off Dawson, but it hits his chest.
61'
Son!!!! He gets on the end of a pass, runs 20-30 yards into the box before firing over!
61'
Chalobah and Winks are carded. Doucoure lucky not to get anything there.
60'
Doucoure and Vertonghen get into an argument after going for the ball, they start arguing and pushing each other and Doucoure seems very angry.
59'
It's all kicking off for no reason! A fight breaks out inside the Spurs half.
57'
Alderweireld fouls Deeney. Watford definitely on top.
55'

52'
Good play by Sarr to get past Tanganga and Alli has to run to the byline to cut out a cross and concede a corner.
50'
Pinball in the Spurs box and Sarr scuffs an attempted volley which goes wide.
50'
Lamela is caught offside.
47'
Doucoure!!! Who did that not go in? Sarr down the far side cross for Deeney, he less the ball run through to Doucoure who takes a touch before inexplicably hitting it wide when it was easier to score!
46'
Back underway!
45'
HT: Watford 0-0 Tottenham! No goals at half-time here at Vicarage Road. Spurs started the better, but it became more even as the half went on. The away side could have had a penalty early on and then, despite both teams having opportunities only Moura's seven minutes before the break was clear-cut. 0-0 definitely fair. Join us for more in 10 minutes!
45'
Watford attack Capoue can't do anything with a cros in and then another ball in by Sarr sees Vertonghen deflect it onto Deeney and it goes for a goal kick.
45'
Two added minutes.

40'
Son!!! The South Korean volleys a long Winks pass over the bar!

Great save by Foster to deny Lucas Moura!! Dele Alli gives it to Moura on the counter and Moura tried to hit the ball through Foster's legs instead of chipping it over him.
35'
Capoue is carded for a late sliding challenge on Lo Celso. The Argentine toe pokes the ball past him and Capoue takes his legs away.
34'
Watford get a free-kick and it's cleared.
33'
From the corner, Gazzaniga has to knock as inswinger away to safety.
32'
Deulofeu!!! He puts Aurier all ends up and his shot goes off the sidenetting! Before that, a cross by Sarr as almost turned in by Deeney.
30'
Back underway and Son sees his strike deflect off Chalobah and nearly end up in the goal. Foster manages to change his dive in time and save.
29'
The fourth official is also having some equipment been changed. A Hawk-Eye technician has come out so it looks a VAR issue.
29'
"It's not football anymore!", chant the crowd. Not sure if it's a problem with the VAR communication or whether it's even between the on field officials.
28'
Michael Oliver is going to the sideline because there seems to be a problem with his comunication equipment.
27'
Nasty challenge by Capoue on Tanganga right on his knee and no card is given. That was a yellow.

24'
Sarr is penalised for a handball as he tries to control a long pass.
22'
Deulofeu goes down in the Spurs box, but he slips rather than being fouled by Lo Celso. Doesn't even appeal.
20'
Chalobah's free-kick is very poor! It goes wide.
19'
Tanganga misjudges a long ball and heads straight to Sarr before pulling him back! Watford wanted a red, but it was towards the sideline. Not a red.

16'
Deulofeu is caught offside.
15'
Great defence by Chalobah after Son and Alli had played a lovely one-two.

Seeing the penalty shout again and it's a clear penalty. Not deliberate, but he definitely made himself bigger.
12'
76% possession for Spurs.
10'
Son makes another good move on this near side to go past Mariappa, but nothing comes of the attack.

Spurs still pressing in Watford's half, but yet to have a clear cut opportunity.
7'
Lamela hits wide of the goal after cutting inside!
6'
Spurs go down the far side and Aurier gets a corner kick off a defender.
4'
Son shoots from outside the box and the ball rolls through to Foster.
3'
The ball was flicked onto Cathcart's arm by Moura. It was not deliberate, but his arm was definitely out. In other parts of Europe, that would have been given.

2'
Moura claims a handball in the Watford box after good build up play, but nothing is given!

Prev.
The players make their way out on a sunny day in Watford. 7 degrees.

Michael Oliver is the referee while Kevin Friend is the VAR.
Prev.
17th v 8th. 22pts v 30pts. Spurs beat Middlesbrough 2-1 in an FA Cup replay in midweek while Watford's replay at Tranmere was postponed until Thu 23rd January due to a waterlogged pitch. Remember, there is a midweek round of Premier League action coming up.
Prev.
Spurs make three changes from the 0-1 loss to Liverpool last Saturday. Sanchez, Eriksen and Rose drop out, Vertonghen, Lo Celso and Lamela come in.
Prev.
Watford name the same XI who won 0-3 at Bournemouth in a relegation six pointer last weekend. That win took them out the bottom three.
Prev.
Tottenham XI: Gazzaniga (GK); Tanganga, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Aurier; Son, Alli, Lo Celso, Winks, Lamela; Moura.
Prev.
Watford XI: Foster (GK); Masina, Catchaet, Dawson, Mariappa; Deulofeu, Capoue, Doucoure, Chalobah, Sarr; Deeney.
