Gary Neville names the Liverpool player Jose would want in his team

I am sure that, first of all, he will perform for us and no doubt he will arrive in very good condition for the World Cup.

"It was a game we had to win and we won, so I'm happy about that", said Pochettino. "Hopefully I can finish strong like I did a year ago going into a big summer".

Salah and Kane are seemingly in a two-horse race for the Premier League Golden Boot this season. He is a fantastic striker.

Tottenham's much-needed victory over Watford sees them move just a single point behind Liverpool, in third, with a game in hand.

But the visitors were left to rue a host of missed chances after matching the under-par hosts for long spells.

A goalkeeping error from Orestis Karnezis enabled Dele Alli to open the scoring 16 minutes in with his fourth goal in five Premier League appearances.

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.

The French number one had cost his side with a series of errors in recent weeks, but Lloris stood up well to save from Andre Grey, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Jose Holebas.

"If you take [Diego] Maradona, Ronaldinho... they were the most skilful players around - they could do things with the football other professional players could only dream about".

Speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football show, Neville claimed that Roberto Firmino is every bit as important to Liverpool's attacking play as his Egyptian compatriot, and would be a desirable signing for any club in the world.

Having escaped unscathed before the break, Pochettino's men doubled their lead within three minutes of the second period.

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.

Pochettino's Spurs have been a force to reckon with this season as they have beaten the mighty Real Madrid at home. If you don't have the control of the boxes it's hard to win games. "We've got a team full of players that want to win things, a manager that wants to win things, the club wants to win things", he told Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard in an interview on BT Sport.
