Pochettino delivers strong message to Kane's World Cup critics

HARRY KANE ended his Wembley goal drought and turned up the heat on Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot as Tottenham saw off Watford 2-0. "In my mind I'm trying to get to that 30 mark", said Kane.

"I feel good, I feel sharp, I probably could have scored a couple more out there today".

He said: "It was good but we could have played better".

"Hugo Lloris was fantastic and showed why he is one of the best in the world. Hopefully I can finish strong like I did past year going into a big summer".

The goalkeeper has come under intense pressure after mistakes leading to goals in three straight matches against Chelsea, Stoke and Man City, and he was not selected for the FA Cup semifinal defeat to Manchester United.

"I try to improve every year".

It wasn't a great performance, I repeat, we cannot be too happy with the performance, but we can be happy about the three points that we are keeping fighting for the top four and a place in the Champions League.

The striker, making his 150th Premier League appearance against Watford, has scored 105 goals in the competition and only Alan Shearer (121) got more in his first 150 matches. "We need to be ready to fight because they will be strong". It was a must-win game - so important for us.

"It's hard to keep playing at a high level, and to show great performances for 10 months", said Pochettino. Maybe we didn't play the way we wanted to play and our performance wasn't right but most important was the three points. I am happy, three points puts us in a good position.

Spurs nearly had a third in the 68th minute when Belgium defender Jan Vertonghen met a Trippier free kick but his header came back off the post, while Kane had an effort ruled offside and substitute Moussa Sissoko fired over from close range.

Former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas thought Pochettino's side were tense and lacked the flow they were showing during the early part of the season. We demand a lot from the keeper and we are so happy with all, I think we have great keepers. Watford were free to play, no pressure, they are safe, for us it is a massive pressure to take three points. 'Last year I got 29 goals so I'd like to beat that but we'll see what happens.

Kane netted after the break, following Dele Alli's first-half opener, to give on-looking England boss Gareth Southgate plenty to smile about and also strengthen his side's top-four aspirations. "He is chasing [Mohamed Salah] but the most important thing is to score goals for the team".
