Tottenham continued their good run of form in the Premier League with a narrow 1-0 victory over Watford at home.
Kieran Trippier’s goal in the 64th minute proved to be the difference between the two sides at White Hart Lane in North London.
Former Tottenham midfielder Ardiles has taken to Twitter to revel in the triumph, while also criticising Watford for taking a defensive approach to the game.
