Pochettino happy for Spurs, Kane after Watford win

"Of course it is a mix about different things".

"It wasn't a great period for him in the last few weeks, he's human like anyone and a little bit affected, but with the help of everyone he's doing well". Fantastic striker. I am happy for him that he scored today and happy for the team. He is a strong guy - physically and mentally.

'Hopefully I can finish strong like I did last season going into a big (World Cup) summer.' Before Kane's goal, Dele Alli had given the hosts the lead after 16 minutes as Spurs profited from a blunder by Watford keeper Orestis Karnezis.

Although Spurs ran out comfortable winners against Watford in front of England manager Gareth Southgate, they had France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to thank for some fine first-half saves.

Kane was mocked by the FA Cup's official Twitter feed last week following Manchester United's semi-final win, something boss Mauricio Pochettino called "embarrassing", and the England striker responded by banging in his 27th league goal of the season.

For Watford, the result means they will have to wait at least another week to get the three points they need to be sure of spending another season in the EPL. Now it's to keep going and try to win.

"We conceded cheaply in our box and weren't able to score goals and if you don't control the boxes it is hard to win games", said Watford manager Javi Gracia, whose side remain 13th, six points clear of the relegation zone.

Departing Wenger Seeks Peaceful End To Mourinho Rivalry
Wenger had not got the better of Mourinho in a competitive fixture until Arsenal beat United 2-0 at the end of last season.

"That [Raheem] Sterling tackle [in the Man City game], wasn't a penalty".

He said: "It was good but we could have played better".

"Everything meant the atmosphere wasn't great to play, but I think the most important thing is to be in a good position in the table".

Describing the victory as "massive" in the context of securing Champions League football next season, Pochettino added: "It puts us in a very good position fighting for the top four and that is the objective for the rest of the season".

With less than two weeks until the end of the campaign, and a Champions League place very almost secured, Pochettino may decide to spare Dembele the matches against West Brom, Newcastle and Leicester City, regardless of whether he is available.

"He didn't have a lot of situations to deal with but there were a few which showed why he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world".

'I'm looking forward to the last three games, hopefully I can finish strong like I did previous year and then obviously we're going into a big summer (with England)'.
