The year 2022 starts in the best way for Tottenham, since they have managed to get an important victory in their visit to Watford. Despite the fact that the ‘Spurs’ arrived as favorites, they suffered to unbalance on the scoreboard and the winning goal only reached 96 ′, thanks to Davinson Sánchez.
The match at Vicarage Road had suffered from an incident in one of the stands, which is why referee Robert Jones decided to add eight more minutes. The Londoners, led by Antonio Conte, did not lower their arms and tried to take advantage of the little time remaining in the commitment.
Precisely, after an attack on the left, Tottenham won a free kick in favor, which could generate a lot of danger. The one in charge of taking the ball was Heung-Min Son and decided to raise the center towards the small area, where several Watford defenders had accumulated, to the dismay of goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann.
Taking advantage of this circumstance, Davinson Sánchez managed to prevail in the aerial game against the Chilean Francisco Sierralta and overcame the goalkeeper’s resistance. The celebrations in the establishment of the ‘Spurs’ did not take in beginning and the result was consummated later.
In this way, Tottenham adds 33 points and climbs to fifth place in the Premier League, leaving two behind Arsenal (4th), in search of the qualifying ticket to the next Champions League. For its part, Watford remains in box 16 with only 13 units, two above the relegation places.
