Mauricio Pochettino says his Tottenham side "feel free" in their place as title outsiders after cutting Chelsea's edge in the Premier League peak.
Tottenham Hotspur kept up the pressure on English Premier League leader Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Saturday, with an easy 4-0 victory over Watford.
"I don't believe in mind games".
Watford 11 vs Spurs: Gomes; Mariappa, Cathcart, Holebas; Janmaat, Cleverley, Doucouré, Amrabat; Niang, Okaka, Success.
Janssen, who is yet to score from open play in the Premier League, then passed up the chance to net an open goal from all of three yards out. There was more to come and Son Heung-Min scored a brace on 44th minute and 10 minutes after half-time to make it 4-0. The fans are great and get behind us.
Spurs, on a club record 11 home wins in a row, may not have enough time to overhaul Chelsea but if they had four or five more matches extra, they would probably be favourites, so relentless is their momentum.
Pochettino was then asked what was the final ingredient his young, promising team need to become Premier League champions, and he responded: "Patience, time and maybe luck".
Jody Clasie scored the only goal of the match as Southampton scapped to a 0-1 win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.
Severe storms forecast for Lowcountry
There were numerous reports of wind damage - mainly to trees - stretching north from Louisa County to Manassas and Fairfax County. The second round is expected to develop and move northeast through the afternoon, impacting all of central Alabama.
Just before the break, Son clipped in a wonderful third goal to extinguish Watford's hopes.
After wins at Burnley and Swansea, Spurs returned to their home turf and had Harry Kane on the bench following his recovery from an ankle injury, but Victor Wanyama had to pull out after picking up an injury during the warm-up, meaning Joshua Onomah was called into the squad.
Without Kane, Spurs have instead looked to his England teammate Alli for inspiration and it was the 20-year-old who gave the hosts the lead shortly after the half-hour.
Spurs have now won their last 14 matches at White Hart Lane across all competitions, whereas Watford have won just one of their last 12 away games.
Son crashed in his second on the volley in the 54th minute and could have grabbed a hat-trick before being substituted to a standing ovation from the home crowd.
He rounded Gomes on the end of Trippier's lofted pass but Kane's shot lacked power and he was agonisingly close to heading in 13 minutes from time.
"The team deserve full credit because the energy and the way they played was fantastic", Pochettino, whose side trailed 1-0 in the 88th minute at Swansea in midweek before scoring three late goals, told Sky Sports.
"If you don't show a strong mentality in 24, 25 players then you will not be able to rotate and give opportunities to others and they don't feel like an important part of the project, then it is hard to win titles".
