Jose Mourinho felt it was “unfair” for his side to come away from Vicarage Road with a draw. This after Tottenham was held by resurgent Watford who missed a penalty.

Troy Deeney saw his spot-kick saved. But the Hornets extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to seven matches.

Paulo Gazzaniga dived low to his right to deny the Watford Captain following Jan Vertonghen’s handball in the second half.

But afterward, Mourinho said, “I think we deserved to win this match. To lose would have been too harsh on the boys.”

“The result is unfair. I think it would have been more unfair if we lost. We had control of the game, especially in the first half. Spurs arrived in dangerous positions. We created chances but we did not manage to score.” Added Mourinho.

Deeney had headed a good chance straight at Gazzaniga just before the break. On the other hand, Abdoulaye Doucoure’s shot into the side-netting early in the second half.

Watford substitute, Ignacio Pussetto cleared an Erik Lamela effort off the line in stoppage time at the end of the match.

Pussetto had only been on the pitch for just over a minute when he slid in to hook away with almost the whole ball over the goal line.

Tottenham lacks spark again.

To the large part of the match, Tottenham was flat bearing in mind they played without Christian Eriksen.

Mourinho’s side lacked a focal point in the absence of Harry Kane. This third consecutive game without a goal is now the sixth time in a row where they have failed to win in the Premier League.

Eriksen was a 73rd-minute replacement for Dele Alli. Despite being on the pitch, he could not spark his side into a decisive moment.

Alli also cut a frustrated figure when he was replaced. The England midfielder has headed one of Tottenham’s few decent chances over the Watford crossbar early in the second half.

With the England striker ruled out until April, these are the trends Tottenham must address if they are to climb back into contention for the Champions League places.
