Rodney Marsh: Pochettino made an error with this Tottenham player in win v Watford
By Harvey Byrne
Outspoken pundit and former England international Rodney Marsh has claimed Mauricio Pochettino made an error by bringing on Harry Kane in Saturday’s Tottenham victory.
The north London side ran out a convincing 4-0 win at White Hart Lane against Watford with goals coming from Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Son Heung-min (2).
Summer signing Vincent Janssen started the match upfront with Kane starting from the bench as the England international looked to recover from an ankle injury suffered earlier in March.
However, Janssen remained goalless in the striker position once more and Pochettino made the decision the bring on Kane with half an hour to go.
The substitution was greeted by most as the club’s top goals scorer made his way back onto the pitch, but Marsh shared on his personal Twitter account that he believed it was a mistake from Pochettino and that the Argentine should have given his star player an extra week off with the game already won.

Many will be pleased to see the return of Kane who has scored a magnificent 19 goals in 22 league appearances for Tottenham this season.
Additionally, with Spurs having just seven matches of the season left to play the England star could be key to helping the club dethrone Chelsea at the top.
