Pochettino confident Kane will be mentally ready for World Cup

  • Davinson Sanchez – 6

Kane was reportedly upset with both incidents, but he struck again in Spurs' 2-0 win over Watford on Monday and Pochettino sees no reason to be concerned about his mental state ahead of the World Cup.

Spurs next play in the league on Saturday, when they take on West Brom at The Hawthorns.

The striker, making his 150th Premier League appearance against Watford, has scored 105 goals in the competition and only Alan Shearer (121) got more in his first 150 matches. It's hard to win games. "It's our target in this moment, focus on the next game against Newcastle and try to get three points".

Spurs are now on course to finish third if they win their three remaining games this season, with the club one point behind Liverpool with a game in hand, and should they do so they will finish behind Manchester City and likely United, with Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal among those behind.

"Of course we're frustrated".

"This is massive. It puts us in a very good position fighting for the top four and that is the objective for the rest of the season".

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has named the one Liverpool player that his former club would love to have on their books - and surprisingly, it isn't Mohamed Salah.

For Watford, the end of the season can not come quickly enough as they are now winless in seven and still not mathematically safe, sitting six points clear of the drop zone. "In my mind I'm trying to get to that 30 mark", said Kane.

Spurs came close to the top of the Premier League in 2016/17, when they finished second, seven points behind Chelsea, and have lost in the semi-finals of the FA Cup for two consecutive seasons. I am looking forward to the last three weeks. "I feel proud of the process".

Although the display was below-par, much like the atmosphere inside the stadium, Pochettino said: "For me the most important thing in the last few games we are going to play - the games that we have ahead - is to win".

Trippier impressed once more as Tottenham beat Watford 2-0 on Monday, with the 27-year-old claiming an assist for Harry Kane's goal.
