Watford 0-0 Tottenham: Deeney misses a penalty as Mourinho's side drop points

Watford picked another point bringing them close to safety following a goalless draw with Tottenham at Vicarage Road on Saturday. 

Watford could have taken more than a point but Gazanniga denied Troy Deeney from the spot-kick in the second half. This marks the fourth game for Jose Mourinho without a league win.

The visitors had a brilliant start. Mariappa was a little slow to get out to Son on the Spurs left and he pulled the ball back for Alli. His shot was blocked but as Lucas tried to bring the ball down, there was a sudden mass appeal for a handball against Cathcart which Michael Oliver is unmoved by.

After like 18 minutes of play, Watford produced a better performance. The hosts were targeting Spurs right with their last few attacks. Capoue got to the byline and did well to pick out Sarr on the edge of the box. He tried to dig an effort out into the top corner and bend it well over the bar.

Half time whistle blew with Watford on top and there was a standing ovation for the home side, while Spurs fans didn't even bother clapping, that's a little harsh given their efforts, if not their final ball.

Penalty ❌

Chalobah got to the byline, pulled the ball back, Deulofeu took aim from the edge of the box and it hit Vertonghen who was diving in to block. Oliver pointed straight to the spot and booked the Spurs captain. Troy Deeney stepped up to take, and his low effort was saved by Gazzaniga as the Spurs keeper went the right way. 

Mariappa's clearance

Goal-line technology was made for moments like those, Aurier crossed from the right of the area, a clump of bodies all slide in and it looked like the ball got a touch off Cathcart before trickling towards the line, where Mariappa slid in to clear with the ball inches away from giving Spurs the latest of late leads.
