Full-time: Tottenham 4-0 Watford

14:20

What an effort! Kane smashes a fantastic effort over the wall but his effort rattles off the crossbar! And with that, the final whistle goes. Kane is denied his goal but Tottenham keep the pressure on Chelsea.

14:19

Cathcart throws himself in front of Kane to try and stop the Spurs forward from bursting through the Watford defence. From 30 yards out, this might be his last chance to score this afternoon...

14:18

Three minutes of time added on at White Hart Lane.

14:17

Son won't get his hat-trick today, but he's had another outstanding afternoon. Josh Onomah comes into replace him for the final minutes of this match.

14:12

Son cracks the woodwork! After that sorry effort to seal his hat-trick moments ago, he's awfully unlucky with this one. Trippier is again involved, clipping a sublime ball down the inside right with the South Korean meets on the half volley, but his effort hammers off the underside of the bar.

14:09

Son should have his hat-trick! Eriksen, who has been majestic today, slides a ball through for Kane who takes it in his stride with the goal in front of him. He generously slides the ball onto Son, who looks to have the easy task of tucking it into corner with just Gomes to beat, but he steers his effort wide!

14:04

CLOSE! Trippier whips another sublime cross in from the right towards Kane and the Spurs striker is about an inch from connecting with a header that would have surely secured his side's fifth.

14:01

Here's another change for Spurs, Dembele is replaced by Moussa Sissoko.

14:00

Half a chance for Deeney! The substitute peels off his man as a ball comes into the box from the left, taking it on his chest before flicking a clever shot towards goal but it flies over Lloris' bar.

13:58

Trippier plays another great ball down the inside right for Kane to bring down just inside the box. He draws out Gomes but the angle is too tight for him to find the back of the net.

13:57

Bit late now, but here comes Troy Deeney for the final 20 minutes, replacing Amrabat.

13:56

Alli is now getting all hot under the collar after a coming together with Holebas. The Watford defender didn't look to have done too much wrong with Alli jumping up to get in his face after hitting the ground. Anthony Taylor defuses the situation however and both men walk away with no action taken.

13:51

Now Alli down. The Spurs star drops a few stepovers which Success doesn't take too kindly too, and rakes his studs down the back of the England international's ankle.

13:50

Eriksen is grimacing after taking a kick but he looks okay to continue and stands over the resulting free kick to take it himself.

13:47

And here's Tottenham's first change of the match; Vincent Janssen makes way for the returning Harry Kane.

Son has his second and looks like he wants more. Watford shipped six at Anfield earlier in the season; they could be in even more trouble if Spurs keep this up.

13:43

That's 6 goals in his last 5 games for Son.

13:42

It's four! Eriksen jogs forward, waiting for the overlapping run of Trippier on the right. He offers the run, bursting past his man and swings in a peach of a cross that Son meets with a tidy volley inside the box, driving it past Gomes for his second of the game. Tottenham looking unstoppable at the moment.

13:41

Goal! Tottenham 4-0 Watford (Heung-min Son, 54)

13:41

Janmaat dances in from the right with space opening up in front of him to shoot. He obliges, but his wayward effort isn't troubling Lloris.

13:39

Vertonghen is one of the more polished centre-halves out there but even he loses his composure after being set through one-on-one on goal. Eriksen threads a sublime ball through with the big Belgian racing forward on the counter to lead the attack, but he's already stumbling as he breaks into the box and Watford get it back off him.

13:38

Watford come forward on the counter with Niang freeing success but his cross into the middle is expertly turned away by Alderweireld.

A few moments ago, Kieran Trippier was down receiving treatment with Kyle Walker sent out to warm up but the former looks okay to continue.

13:32

And we are back underway for the second half.
