Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways on Wednesday as they came from behind to beat Watford 2-1 at Wembley in the Premier League.
Mauricio Pochettino got the response he had been hoping for after the club were knocked out of both the Carabao and FA Cups last week.
Spurs faced a Watford side that have been having a fine season under Javi Gracia’s management, and things could have gotten ugly after Hugo Lloris gifted Craig Cathcart the game’s opening goal.
But Spurs were able to turn things around in the final 15 minutes or so with goals from Heung-min Son and Fernando Llorente.
Son picks up where he left off
A lot of Tottenham fans rejoiced when they learned that South Korea had exited the Asian Cup earlier than expected last week.
They knew that would mean winger Son would be returning to help the team again, with Dele Alli and Harry Kane both still out injured.
Son has emerged as one of Tottenham’s most important players and was in red hot form before departing for the United Arab Emirates.
On his return at Wembley, he dazzled for the Lilywhites and pretty much picked up from where he left off.
His goal meant he’s now up to 13 for the season and simply put, the Spurs faithful is delighted to have him back in the picture.
Never sell him. Keep him until retirement pls

When everyone is fit it almost gets lost how good a player he is. To produce that performance tonight was different level, Poch said he owed us one for letting him leave at the start of the season, tonight he paid it back! Same again Saturday please Sonny ??

Son is such a wonderful player. Humble, yet inspiring. Determined and desperate to win. I wish all our players had his qualities. Maybe Poch & the club would find another 1 or 2 like him before the window closes!! Here’s hoping…..!
