Ighalo’s strike fails to lift Watford, as Tottenham move to third
• Stoke sink Everton in seven-goal thriller
Tottenham Hotspur has moved to third in the English Premier League after Son Heung-Min’s late goal secured a 2-1 victory over a 10-man Watford, while Marko Arnautovic’s stoppage-time penalty gave Stoke City a 4-3 win at Everton yesterday.
Spurs went ahead through Erik Lamela at Vicarage Road but in-form Odion Ighalo levelled with his 14th league goal of the season.
Watford, up to seventh on the back of a six-match unbeaten run, had Nathan Ake sent off midway through the second half and Spurs left it late to capitalise, with South Korean Son scoring in the last minute.
Spurs went ahead of Manchester City on goal difference with both on 35 points.
Everton and Stoke served up a seven-goal thriller at Goodison Park as the away side came from 3-2 down in the last 10 minutes to win 4-3 with goals from Joselu and Arnautovic.
Romelu Lukaku’s double for Everton moved him level with Leicester’s Jamie Vardy at the top of the scoring charts on 15 goals, while Stoke’s record signing Xherdan Shaqiri struck his first two goals for the club.
