Tottenham Hotspur fans will have had a good day at Vicarage Road, after almost being held to a frustrating goalless draw with Watford, before seeing a late goal rescue all three points. Emerson Royal was slated though, with fans fuming at his performance.
The Brazilian full-back didn’t paint himself in glory, losing the ball 21 times throughout the game. That’s a pretty woeful stat, highlighting how wasteful he was this afternoon.
Do you expect Levy to back Conte?
He also attempted 13 crosses throughout the game, only being accurate with four of them. That sums up Emerson’s day really, wasteful and not up to standard. He needs to seriously improve if he is to remain the starting right full back with Matt Doherty waiting in the wings.
His poor showing didn’t go unnoticed either by the Spurs fans. They took to Twitter to voice their concerns for his performance, slating him for it.

If you’re going to secure Champions League football, you need to take your chances against relegation threatened sides and claim the three points. Something Spurs did… Just!
They’re now in a good position to secure the final top four spot ahead of rivals Arsenal, Manchester United and West Ham, securing the three points in the dying moments despite not being at your best is a sign of a successful side.
