Watford captain Deeney questions Tottenham's mental toughness

Watford captain Troy Deeney enjoyed a dig at Tottenham after Sunday's win.

Deeney rubbed salt in the wounds, proclaiming that the Tottenham players were not comfortable with the physical battle.

He said: "We cause people problems, we are big lumps, people don't like it, then we limited their chances.

"Character shown, we were disappointed first half, going forward poor, but we showed resilience, we can make this place a fortress, two goals were great.

"This gives confidence, four wins is a huge achievement, some people say we have only beaten lesser teams, this gives us more respect, but this will be a tough month."
