We shall see. 

That's all from me for now though. If you're just joining in, feel free to catch up on it all below.

Head over here for reaction, and build-up to all of Saturday's games.

Until the next time!

Right then, what can Chelsea do at Bournemouth this afternoon? That's what it comes down to. 

Four points, their lead has been cut down to with that Spurs win. Is the title race truly back on?...

Very convincing from Spurs and they're making a fist of the title race. They're not wobbling and the onus is on Chelsea to go and win this afternoon.

One last hurrah? Harry Kane is lining up a free-kick... Decent position. He's gonna blast one... 

It smashes off the bar!

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

THREE minutes stoppage time.

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

Spurs are moving within four points of Premier League leaders Chelsea. They've blown Watford away on the strength of those 11 first-half minutes. Three goals, which Son Heung-min added to after the break.

How long is added on? Watford will want this one done with sooner rather than later.

I would use the word sensational for Son. Every time he's had the ball, other than his miss from that Harry Kane pass, he's been really, really good. A top class player and he gets a big bear hug from his manager.

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

Well the hat-trick just was not meant to be for Son Heung-min. Off he comes now, replaced by Josh Onomah, a 19-year-old midfielder. Job done.

Onomah's only on the bench because of Vincent Wanyama's injury in the warm-up.

Sean McGreal: Pochettino has 'em purring. Nailed on CL football for Spurs next season at least.

Son Heung-min smashes against the bar after Kieran Trippier's ball forward - another excellent pass. 

He just cannot get it in! The hat-trick really isn't meant to be...

Well this was the easiest chance of the goals he's scored. Kane unselfishly slips in Son and I can't believe he's missed. He can't believe it, Tottenham fans can't believe it and Harry Kane can't believe it. Kane says 'go on Son, go and get your hat-trick,' but he's put it wide.

MISS!

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

Hat-trick! It must be!

Harry Kane rolls a pass out to Son Heung-min, who just needs to keep his head and finish low for the treble. But he fires wide, with the goal at his mercy. Not to be?

CLOSE!

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

Another inch-perfect cross from Kieran Trippier but Harry Kane cannot connect - the ball just sails beyond his head. The striker launched himself at that. Brilliant effort, but couldn't quite make the telling contact to divert it home.

Trippier has been very good today.

SUBSTITUTION

Off comes Mousa Demeble, replaced by Moussa Sissoko.

Watford are still gamely pressing, but Spurs are just leaning back, waiting for another chance to strike.

Would five goals flatter Spurs? It's probably about right. Watford haven't really looked a threat. Lloris hasn't had a lot to do and Spurs have been outstanding, everybody all over the pitch.

CHANCE!

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

Kieran Trippier lifts a ball over the Watford backline and Harry Kane gets his first taste of real action, rounds the keeper... 

But the stab at goal is weak, he's off balance, and a yellow shirt is there to mop up. 

Vincent Janssen would have buried that...

Anthony: Tottenham look a very very good side under Pochettino, the club should do everything in their power to keep him.   

Simon Rigler:  I chose Pedro over Son for FF team this week. And I'm a Cherries fan. Hindsight's wonderful of course, but d'oh!

Supeace Bro: I guess, its end of Vincent Janssen for spurs..... still hope i m wrong but...

SUBSTITUTION

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

Here comes Troy Deeney, on for Nordin Amrabat. An attacking move that - forward on for winger. They've got a goal in them you feel, Watford. At least one. Fair play for going after it.

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

A Watford corner is boomed clear by Harry Kane - who's hardly had a touch since coming on. 

Spurs seem to be settling into seeing this out. Troy Deeney looks ready to come on for Watford as Hugo Lloris hooks a through-ball clear. They're edging back into this a little, the away side. But obviously, take a look at the scoreline...

CHANCE!

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

Beautiful flick from Stefano Okaka on towards the racing Isaac Success, who is breezing clear on the Spurs right. You wouldn't know his team is 4-0 down... 

And Success just fires wide of the post as he's slightly crowded out by the recovering Mousa Demeble. A half-chance for a Hornets consolation.

Craig Smith: If I were Chelsa I'd be worried. Have to win 6/8 as Spurs likely to have better GD and don't look like losing again

Dan D: Son is looking good for another player of the month award. 4 goals & 2 assists already and we're only a week in.

Olorunda Titus: This Spurs side are really good at what they do. Pochettino has done a good job on them.

Abdoulaye Doucoure is off and Juan Zuniga comes on. A wing-back on for a midfield enforcer, who hasn't had much opportunity to enforce. 

That's Watford's first change. Not that it will change much.

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

A colleague I was speaking to on Thursday - who shall remain nameless but she is a Spurs fan - was saying how she didn't rate Son-Heung-min. Something about his technique not being up to snuff I think it went? 

Ahem.

Tottenham 4-0 Watford

John Hartson

Ex-Wales striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Well it's just brilliant from Spurs. What a player Son Heung-min is. Everything he's done today has been absolutely brilliant.

He hits it on the half volley and that is a really difficult skill to keep it down. His second of the day. Brilliant from Son.

It's so difficult to explain how hard that ball is to hit. To make that connection when it's so high and to hit it cleanly into the bottom corner is top drawer.

Son's second, Spurs' fourth

Kieran Trippier's cross to the back stick is golden, just crying out for someone to run in and smash it home. 

Son Heung-min is only too happy to oblige, a gloriously controlled half-volley diverted home. Spurs were already in the ascendancy, so where are they now? 

Out of sight.

We asked if you fancied a bit of Photoshop fun earlier (13:00). An excellent effort here.

Very much watermelon weather.

Unlucky! 

Jan Vertonghen steaming forward on goal like a runaway 50-1 shot in the Grand National... But he just runs out of juice at the final hurdle. 

Tottenham had broken so quickly from a Watford corner - it all started from Christian Eriksen's clever flick to evade his man.

Tottenham 3-0 Watford

Ah - there's Claudio Ranieri in the White Hart Lane stands, enjoying his enforced exile from the cut and thrust. Where will we see him next?

Kieran Trippier is down receiving treatment, Kyle Walker is sent out to stretch, but it looks like Trippier is fine to carry on.

Spurs are queuing up now for a shot on goal. Watford are playing for pride here and need to put a bit more in the second half.

Can Janssen get on the score sheet for Spurs? Will Kane have a little cameo or will Pochettino save him? I would think he'd get at least 20 minutes today. He's on the bench and ready to play.

CLOSE!

Tottenham 3-0 Watford

I've heard it said there's not a more underrated player than Mousa Dembele. I tell you what - he is good. Gliding past two Watford shirts as if they're not there, firing a low shot that is deflected just wide of Heurelho Gomes' stick. He was scrambling, the Brazilian.

Jack Hanson:  Has a Premier League team scored three goals from outside the box in a match before?

Bishop Yinkus:  Don't know why Spurs fans keep craving for Kane when Alli keeps chipping in performances week in & out. Wish he was a Gunner

Of course, it's only really Watford that need to change things. Tottenham are cruising to within four points of Premier League leaders Chelsea, who play away to Bournemouth later today (17:30 BST).

Dele Alli

Kush in London: We are normally very good at over hyping young English players, but wherever I look, I just hear about how Kylian Mbappé is the next big thing. We genuinely have one of the best young players in the world in Dele Alli, so let's show him even more love and mention him in the same breath as other young European talents.   

Dan Vitran from Leicester:  I'd love spurs to win the title. Tired of seeing the big money spenders win everything in life and always get their way ie Barca, Real, Juventus, Manchester Clubs, Liverpool, Arsenal. What a refreshing change if after Leicester last season another low spender wins the title. This fox is definitely backing and hoping Spurs do it.
