Tottenham Hotspur make history by securing their third consecutive win after beating Watford 1-0. They register nine points from the first three matches with three clean sheets for the first time, and go top of the Premier League table, a truly emphatic way to sign for the upcoming international break, with Son Heung-Min’s first-half goal appearing to be the main difference between the two sides.

Tottenham Hotspur Player Ratings Vs Watford

Hugo Lloris: 7/10

Hugo Lloris didn’t have much to do as Watford only mustered two shots on target for the entire game. He did remain vigilant, aware of any dangers that came in his way and successfully retained three clean sheets in a row.

Japhet Tanganga: 8/10

Japhet Tanganga’s excellent start to the season continues with yet another impressive defensive performance. Offered solidity that was critical in helping Tottenham retain the clean sheet.

Davinson Sanchez: 8/10

Davinson Sanchez was a rock at the back for a Tottenham side that prevented Watford attackers any freedom going forward. His imposing physique indeed made it difficult for the likes of Joshua King and Immanuel Dennis.

Eric Dier: 8/10

Eric Dier offered optimal defensive support to Sanchez, helping his team secure the third clean sheet in a row. This performance should be enough to help him remain on top of new signing Cristian Romero.

Sergio Reguilon: 8/10

Sergio Reguilon had difficulties dealing with the threat of Ismaila Sarr during the early stages of the game. However, the left-back settled into the game well, especially from a defensive perspective.

Oliver Skipp: 7.5/10

Oliver Skipp remained calm and composed in the Spurs midfield alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. His crisp passing helped his team maintain control of the game.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg: 8.5/10

Hojbjerg was a vital cog in Spurs’ second line of press, as ever. He put pressure on opposing ball-carriers, but also sprayed forward passes that helped his team stretch out Watford who usually defended narrowly.

Son Heung-Min: 9/10

Son Heung-Min was a constant threat in the final third with his smart movements and ability to drift inside. It was his precise free-kick that dumbfounded Daniel Bachmann in the Watford goal, leading to the winner.

Dele Alli: 7.5/10

Dele Alli produced yet another hard-working and rather impressive display in the final third. He was always a passing option for his teammates going forward, as the Englishman continues his redemption arc.

Steven Bergwijn: 7/10

Steven Bergwijn’s pace on the break was a threat to one of Watford’s main defenders in Craig Cathcart. The Dutchman put in a good shift in the final third, though he wasn’t as influential as his teammates.

Harry Kane: 7.5/10

Harry Kane returned to the starting lineup, in what might have served as a major sigh of relief for the Tottenham fans. The Englishman wasn’t able to make a huge impact, but his presence in the final third made their attacking game much better, allowing Son more freedom.

SUBSTITUTES

Lucas Moura: 7/10

Lucas Moura put in a good shift after coming on for Bergwijn midway through the second half.

Bryan Gil: N/A

A late replacement for Son.
