Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham were held to a goalless draw as Watford missed taking three points after Paulo Gazzaniga saved Troy Deeney’s penalty in premier league match on Saturday.

The Spurs missed their chance to score through Lucas Moura whose shot was saved by Watford keeper Ben Foster in a very dull first half.

A fight broke out between Harry Winks and Abdoulaye Doucoure but referee Michael Oliver handled the situation well, booking both players.

Then Paulo Gazzaniga saved Troy Deeney’s penalty after Jan Vertonghen’s handball in the area.

Watford substitute Ignacio Pussetto, who made his debut for the club after signing £7m deal from Udinese, cleared Erik Lamela’s shot from the crossing the line at stoppage time.

The Hornets move up 16th from the bottom in premier league while the Spurs are now 7th after remaining winless since Boxing Day.
