  • Dele Alli talks about Mauricio Pochettino criticism and winning titles with Steven Gerrard

The goalkeeper has come under intense pressure after mistakes leading to goals in three straight matches against Chelsea, Stoke and Man City, and he was not selected for the FA Cup semifinal defeat to Manchester United.

The visitors continued to create chances, forcing Lloris to be sharp to stop efforts by Abdoulaye Doucoure and Richarlison, who almost equalized for Watford in the 44th minute.

Mauricio Pochettino has told those skeptical of Harry Kane's worldwide credentials that the Tottenham striker will be 100% ready both physically and mentally for England's World Cup campaign. Watford were free to play, no pressure, they are safe, for us it is a massive pressure to take three points.

Kane netted three minutes into the second half and had numerous additional chances to add to his tally as Tottenham recorded a routine win on Monday.

It wasn't a great performance, I repeat, we cannot be too happy with the performance, but we can be happy about the three points that we are keeping fighting for the top four and a place in the Champions League.

Victor Wanyama, meanwhile, has started just five Premier League games this season after a knee injury suffered in preseason and Pochettino will also hope to use preseason to try to restore the Kenyan to last season's levels, when he one of the most consistent midfielders in the country. Previous year I got 29 goals so I'd like to beat that but we'll see what happens.

Talking about her achievement, an elated Anu said ensuring the safety of women in the country would be her top priority. While the Telangana candidate topped the list, Anu Kumari from Sonipat came second, while Sachin Gupta stood third.

"I feel good", he said. We'll see what happens and in my mind I'm just trying to get to that 30 mark.

"It is a mix about different things". Past year I got 29 goals so I'd like to beat that but we'll see what happens. It wasn't a great period for him the last few weeks and, of course, he's only human and was a little bit affected. I am very happy because the three points now put us in a very good position.

He said: "It was good but we could have played better". I think we conceded a few chances, but there was Hugo Lloris in goal and he showed fantastic skill and why he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

But his club manager Mauricio Pochettino insisted Kane would be back firing on all cylinders in time for the first group stage game - against Tunisia on June 18.

"But he's a strong guy mentally and physically and I'm sure that first of all he's going to perform well for us and then he'll arrive in a very good condition to play in the World Cup".

"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".
