LONDON (AP) — Tottenham climbed to second in the Premier League for the first time this season with a 1-0 victory over Watford on Saturday, taking advantage of Manchester City's slip-up.
Kieran Trippier's first goal for Tottenham took the north London club ahead of City by a point.
Tottenham is five points behind leader Leicester, which eased to a 3-1 victory over City earlier in the day.
Spurs controlled the game at White Hart Lane without providing a sustained goal threat.
The breakthrough came in the 64th minute when Dele Alli crossed across the face of goal for Trippier to tap in at the far post past former Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes. The defender, playing his first season for Spurs, last scored for Burnley more than two years ago.
