Llorente ‘very happy’ after scoring late winner for Spurs against Watford

Spurs picked up a massive three points tonight after sealing a dramatic 2-1 comeback win over Watford at Wembley.

It seemed like the darks clouds surrounding the North London club were about to get worse, when they entered the last 10 minutes of tonight’s game 1-0 down, after a Hugo Lloris error had allowed Watford defender Craig Cathcart to head home on 38 minutes.

However, South Korea international Son Heung-Min hit home on the 80 minute mark, before much-maligned striker Fernando Llorente powered home a 87th minute header to seal a massive three points for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Former Juventus striker Llorente, who had earlier missed two clear cut chances and is only in the side due to Harry Kane’s absence through injury, admitted afterwards that he was delighted to help his side get back to winning ways.

“I am really happy because today was a tough game. To help the team with a massive goal today is very important. More so after the past two games in cups that we lost. We needed to come back to winning ways,” the Spaniard told Sky Sports.

When asked about covering for Spurs talisman Kane he replied:

“It’s a big responsibility. I’m ready to help the team and will be stronger every game.”

Tonight’s win sees Spurs move to within seven points of league leaders Liverpool, and also seven clear of fourth place Arsenal.
