Manchester: Son Heung-Min's 89th-minute strike sent Tottenham Hotspur third in the Premier League yesterday in a 2-1 win at Watford, as Louis van Gaal prepared for what may prove his final game as Manchester United manager.

Tottenham took a 17th-minute lead when Erik Lamela stabbed home following a defensive mix-up, before Odion Ighalo stabbed home his 14th goal of the season to equalise for Watford four minutes before half-time.
But Watford lost Nathan Ake to a red card for a waist-high foul on Lamela in the 63rd minute and Son struck at the death, gathering Kieran Trippier's half-volleyed pass and beating Heurelho Gomes.
Meanwhile, Marko Arnautovic scored a last-gasp penalty as Stoke City beat Everton 4-3 in a thriller at Goodison Park.
