Tottenham are experiencing the worst of times in the past five years, struggling to find a draw against a Watford side rooted to the bottom of the league.
In the face of some VAR confusion, Tottenham were awarded the equalizer in a game they looked for so long they were losing.
If they had been defeated by the basement club, Mauricio Pochettino couldn’t have been caught complaining because they were utterly terrible.
Speaking of how horrible the final third was, an inconsistent performer in Serge Aurier was their best performer in the encounter.
Tempers were flared at the White Hart Lane after the confusion caused by the VAR appeared to have chalked off the goal.
The screen at the stadium incorrectly displayed “No Goal” and it seemed like it would be chalked off, but it correctly stood.
Tottenham are seriously struggling and it took a late intervention from Dele Alli to take them level with a woeful side who were trashed 8-0 by Manchester City only a few league games away.
Talking of their struggles, they have only managed one win in their last seven games and their manager, Maurico Pochettino has the least clue to what’s happening
“The performance wasn’t great but when you concede an early goal and the momentum of the team (is the way it is) it’s tough,” said Pochettino.
“We want to build the team again. We were nervous, it wasn’t the way we want to play – but I understand that. It’s so difficult to play in this sort of situation.
“We never gave up and I think the equaliser was fully deserved. That was the first step for us to build our confidence. After losing to Bayern Munich 7-3 our confidence was on the floor – so now we go step by step. We have football problems but we are football people and we have to find a way.”
