But Alli netted late on, with VAR allowing it to stand despite calls for handball.

  • PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are ready to hijack Real Madrid's swoop for Tottenham star Christian Eriksen, according to reports.

    The Danish playmaker declared his desire to leave North London after Mauricio Pochettino's side lost the Champions League final at the end of last season.

    But he has stayed put for now, as no bid came in that satisfied Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

    According to the Mail, the club would like to sell Eriksen but he would like to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.

  • MAURICIO POCHETTINO has finally admitted Tottenham might need to splash out in January.

    Saturday's meek 1-1 home draw with Watford left Spurs with just three wins in nine games and boss Poch insisting his priority was to keep his players “calm”.

    But he told Sky Sports Tottenham chiefs must be “ready to do something” in the next transfer window if results do not improve.

    Poch told Sky Sports: “I am happy with the squad, I am happy with the players.

    “What is going to happen in January I cannot guess today, what happens will happen. We need to take the responsibility

    “But if we win all of the games why will we need to do anything?

    “But if we need something we need to act. But we need to act and stay calm.

    “The most important thing now is to provide calm to the players.”

  • WATFORD boss Quique Sanchez Flores felt Harry Kane had pushed Christian Kabasele in the build-up to Dele Alli's equaliser.

    The Hornets chief raged: “I was thinking VAR was something objective but I start to think it’s very, very secretive.

    “I thought VAR was helping football and then this happened.

    “If we’re talking about this part, it’s very weird. Now there are many interpretations. It was good to know what happened in secret.”

  • SPURS RATINGS: TOTTENHAM managed to avoid another miserable day as Dele Alli's late goal earned them a draw against Watford.
