  • 94'

    FULL TIME: Watford 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur.

  • 92'

    OFF THE LINE! Eriksen feeds the overlapping Aurier who drives a low cross into the box. The ball takes a couple deflections and is rolling over the line, but Cathcart is there to smash clear. Goal line tech has shown us that it was a matter of millimeters

    There will be a minimum of 4 minutes added time.

  • 89'

    SUB: Sarr, who has been superb today, is injured and comes off for Pussetto.

  • 85'

    Just 5 minutes to go of normal time and both teams are still fiercely competitive. Lamela shoots on the angle but skies it.

  • 79'

    SUB: Chalobah makes way for Pereyra for Watford and Lo Celso makes way for Fernandes for Spurs.

  • 78'

    Sarr shoots ambitiously from distance and can't find the target.

  • 72'

    SUB: Eriksen comes on in place of Ali.

  • 70'

    SAVED! Gazzaniga guesses the right way and denies Deeney! The score remains 0-0 with 20 minutes to go.

  • 69'

    PENALTY FOR WATFORD! Sarr pulls it back for Deulofeu who's shot strikes an arm! Deeney will step up to take this...

  • 64'

    Chance! More picks out Lamela in the box who's shot is well blocked by Dawson.

  • 62'

    Son latches onto a loose ball with blistering pace and has space to shoot from a slight angle. His effort is blasted over.

  • 60'

    YELLOWS: Winks and Doucoure both receive bookings.

  • 59'

    There is a break in play as there has been a spat off the ball. VAR will check this.

  • 55'

    Shot! Deeney muscles his way into the box before unleashing a snap shot, which deflects out for a corner.

  • 53'

    Son whips in a good cross which finds Ali but he can't keep his header down.

  • 50'

    Chance! Watford have another great chance go to waste. Cross comes in and Deeney sets it up for Sarr who missed his volley from close range. Great start to the half for Watford.

  • 47'

    HALF TIME: Watford 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur.

  • 47'

    Huge chance! Sarr does brilliantly on the right wing before sending in a grounded cross. Deeney skips it and Doucoure meets it, however he couldn't get it under control and his effort goes wide. Golden chance for the home side.

  • 46'

    KICK OFF: We're underway again.

  • 45'

    There will be a minimum of 2 minutes added time.

  • 42'

    Chance! The ball falls to Chalobah outside the box who dinks a cross back in. It finds Deeney, who's glancing header is on target but quite easily saved.

  • 40'

    Winks lobs one over for Son, who attempted to volley it first time but couldn't get it right at all as the ball is blasted well over the bar.

  • 38'

    Chance! Dele Ali goes on a brilliant box-to-box counter attacking run before slipping in More who only had the keeper to beat. But Foster was quick off his line and smothered the ball clear. Biggest chance of the game, but the score remains 0-0.

  • 35'

    This time Capoue finds himself in the book for a late tackle.

  • 34'

    Deulofeu gets the better of Aurier and wins a free kick in a very good crossing position. The full back finds himself in the book.

  • 34'

    Sarr takes the free kick but it comes to nothing.

  • 32'

    Sarr puts in a very dangerous cross which is heading for the top corner and Gazzaniga does well to tip it away.

  • 30'

    SCORE UPDATE: Watford 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur.

  • 30'

    Son's effort from just outside the box takes a deflection and Foster does well to make the save.

  • 26'

    It's been a competitive game so far. Neither side has had any clear cut chances though. There is a check on a possible red card for Capoue but it will be no more than a free kick.

  • 20'

    Chalobah shoots but his effort isn't anywhere too near the target.

  • 19'

    Foul! Sarr gets on the end of an ariel ball just outside the box, and his legs tangle with Tangana. Yellow card for the defender and a free kick for Watford from a promising shooting or crossing position.

  • 18'

    Doucoure does brilliantly to dispossess Winks near the touchline. He drives towards to box and cuts it back for Sarr, who took a couple touches before shooting high and wide. Positive signs for the home side.

  • 12'

    Tangana shoots from outside the box as the Watford defense frustrates Spurs. Foster saves easily.

  • 7'

    Lamela goes on a good run outside the box before dragging his shot well wide.

  • 4'

    Vertonghen picks out Son with a good arial ball. The winger cuts onto his right foot and shoots but it is a simple save for Foster.

  • 2'

    chance! Watford counter through Deulofeu who travelled a great distance with the ball at his feet as Winks tried to chase him down. He eventually gets his shot away, some 25 yards from goal and it goes well wide.

  • 1'
